Have you though about adding a commercial patio cover to your business? Considering a patio cover for your business may be a different decision than choosing one for your home. Commercial patio covers essentially serve the same purpose as one you may install at your home, but can help to provide practical and a decorative touch to your business. Kool Breeze uses covers to protect equipment from the outside elements. If you have been considering a patio cover for your business, here are some reasons that it can benefit you and your customers.
What Is A Patio Cover?
The structure of a patio cover is a freestanding structure that has open sides and provides shade and or cover from weather. They are usually made out of metal or vinyl. You have probably seen them in parking lots, parks, carports and other businesses. Patio covers are slightly different from awnings for pergolas, but they all serve essentially the same purpose.
Patio covers can be attached to the side of your home or business, or can be free standing away from any building. The options for your cover are endless and easy to install with the proper company.
Break Or Smoke Areas
Having a smoke area or an outdoor break space is appealing to some employees. Making your employees stand in the sun, wind, rain or snow is not convenient for anyone. Investing in a patio cover can provide some protection and comfort from the elements.
A patio cover can have multiple uses, but using it to serve your employees can help them feel like they matter to the company and increase productivity. Having a covered area for when the weather isn’t the best, can make your customers and employees happy.
Reduce Energy Consumption
If your office or business has a lot of windows, it can get expensive to keep it cool. The sun can creep in and heat up the interior of your business. Installing a cover or awning outside can help reduce your energy bill and keep the heat outside. The patio cover deflects the heat without compromising the view.
Updates to the outside of your business that help it to look more professional and clean will drive more business. Whether you put in a commercial awning or patio cover, this can add a new element of appeal to your customers. The cleaner your business can be, the more onlookers you will attract. This is great for business because having more people using the cover you installed can drive even more business.
Patio covers can help drive customers to your business because they are great places to park, stop in the shade or even enjoy your business from the outside. If you sell food or customers need to hang out at your shop, a patio can be a good waiting area or place for families and friends to stick around. If other passers by see a crowd at your business, their interest will be piqued.
Cooler For The Summer
Commercial patio covers provide shade for people and for cars. This can benefit you and your employees by having a place to park your cars while you are at work. During the summer cars can get up to 43 degrees higher than the outside temperature. Parking somewhere that has shade will keep your car cooler for when you are ready to leave work later in the day.
