It’s no secret that residents of Chester County know how to have a good time in their backyards, especially now that we’re entering the warmer months. Cookouts, pool parties, and summer holiday celebrations are right around the corner.
At Milanese Remodeling, we love creating features that make the time you spend in your backyard more enjoyable. Creating your ideal exterior is a multi-layered process that begins with a deck or patio that attaches to your home. Next, we add an awning or some other type of structure for shade and rain protection. Add some deer fencing to keep out the critters and you’ve got a fully fledged, visitor friendly entertainment area. A place to be proud of that friends and family will remember for times to come.
The third step is what really makes Chester County backyards shine like nothing else on earth! We accessorize, adding anything from pizza ovens and patio kitchens to outdoor televisions and bars. In addition to these amenities, we install outdoor features that:
- Heat things up: with fire-pits, fireplaces, hot tubs, and infra-red heaters.
- Cool things down: with cabanas, gazebos, swimming pools, and misting fans.
- Bring the outdoors indoors: with patio rooms and porch enclosures.
- Keep it orderly: with fences and garden structures, to make those fences easier we recommend use tools like steel post drive.
Installing a Hot Tub
The location you choose is essential just as important as the type of hot tub you choose. It will need to be large enough for the hot tub itself, but with enough space to perform maintenance. It’ll need to be far enough from the house for people to get in and out of the tub, too.
The electrical panel and spa controls should be at a distance from the spa. Water should never be close to electricity. That’s a lot of space requirements, so it’s best to plan that out way in advance.
Avoid leaving all sides of your hot tub exposed. Instead, use existing walls and railings to hide multiple sides, then mask what remains with a wooden enclosure. Head on, you’ll see functional steps leading to your tub, but from the side, the tub will appear as a warm wood wall.
