“Summertime… and the livin’ is easy.” At least, so it says in that famous Gershwin song from the musical Porgy and Bess. But the reality is that summertime can often be hot, uncomfortable, and buggy—if you’re not prepared, that is. Well, we here at Continental Siding are dedicated to making sure you can enjoy yourself at home during the summer… and not just holed up inside, with the air conditioning on full blast!
Having a nice deck will increase your enjoyment of summertime’s pleasures, and when people in the Kansas City area hear “quality deck” we know people think of us. We offer plenty of different styles to fit your budget, and your lifestyle! Some people want a wooden deck that recalls traditional home living, but others are interested in a low-maintenance alternative material, like PVC.
Did you know that PVC decking is weather-proof, UV-stabilized, and is virtually maintenance-free? It’s also less expensive, as well as being more durable, and it’s slip-resistant too, good if you have lots of kids or older people coming over to visit during those beautiful, long summertime evenings!
But what if it’s really just too hot to play outside? Heck, what if it’s too hot to play inside your home? Even with air conditioning, windows can let in lots of heat during the summer. And while your cat might enjoy lounging on his back, belly-up, in the extreme heat of the afternoon sun beating down on your carpet, you may not feel the same way. Awnings will help reduce your air conditioning costs in the summer by providing shade. They also add character to your dwelling by looking lovely, and protect your biggest investment—your home—during the winter, as well, by shielding your windows from ice, snow, hail, and sleet.
There’s even more you can do to beautify and enhance your home, however. We here at Continental Siding are thrilled to be able to offer glass-enclosed rooms as a home-improvement option. Why would you want one? Well, glass-enclosed rooms are versatile and useful. Beautiful views of your back yard will be highlighted by a professional engineer, and then installed by those with the expertise to do the design justice.
Glass-enclosed rooms allow you to enjoy a space in your own home reminiscent of a resort or spa, where you can entertain company, work or play with your family, or just rest and relax after a long day. Our glass walls are thermally practical, using a technology that separates outside and inside surfaces for optimum efficiency. Even better, if you ever decide to sell your home, you’ll find there’s a return on your investment, as glass-enclosed rooms add to the unique appeal of any home. They’re great for every lifestyle—and ever season of the year!
