1. Different Options for Materials to Frame Patio Enclosures
There are several different options to consider for the materials that are used for the frame of your patio enclosure. If you are going to be enclosing an area that is already covered, wood materials are a good option because they easily blend in with existing structures. Wood can be an expensive option if you do not already have a covered area, which aluminum is a great alternative that can be quickly erected and costs less than traditional wood construction. Today, there are also options for composite materials that are affordable lightweight alternatives to wood and metal framing.
2. Choosing the Style of Roof and Materials to Cover Enclosures
There is also the choice of the style of roof that will be used over a covered patio area. If the space is already covered, then you will want to use the existing structure and materials. If you are building a new covered area, you may want to consider options like contemporary designs with aluminum materials, which will give you a more affordable option to cover porch and patio areas. You may also want to have the covered area to match the structure of your home and blend in with conventional wood materials, which will cost a little more.
3. Different Options for Glass and The Benefits of Patio Enclosures
With porch enclosures, you also have many choices for windows and screens. If the space is not air-conditioned space, you will probably want to use single pane glass windows and screens for a more affordable solution. If the space in the enclosure is going to be air-conditioned, consider using double pane energy-efficient glass to reduce energy loss and ensure that your newly enclosed space is always comfortable.

I have very small rooms in my house and I have spent many hours looking into ways to create a larger feel in the small spaces. My bathroom is especially small and I had to find a way to make it appear a lot larger than it really is. I decided that the best way for me to create the open feel that I wanted in the bathroom was to install a glass shower surround. I had my contractor remove the bathtub and install a walk-in shower that was completely enclosed with glass. This is just one way that I have used glass in my small home.
