With chilly weather moving in and winter knocking on your door, it’s time to prepare your outdoor spaces for snow, frost and ice. 

Did you know? With a sunroom or balcony enclosure from Okanagan Covertec, a large part of your winter prep is already done for you. The difference is amazing!

Though preparation is important and will help reduce future maintenance and repairs, it can also be tedious and time-consuming. Okanagan Covertec can help reduce your winter to-do list by providing a structure that will protect the facade of your home, your patio, and your belongings. Normally, prep involves covering outdoor furniture or finding a spot to store it, along with a host of other tasks. With our enclosures, you can enjoy your furniture and outdoor space all year round…BBQ in December anyone? 

If you don’t have to worry about your furniture and other belongings, what about the rest of your yard? 

This handy list will help guide you through some basic tasks to prepare the rest of your exterior spaces for winter. Whether you are a long-time homeowner, or this is the first winter in your new home, yard prep will reduce damages and costly repairs.

What about my sunroom? How do I prepare it for winter? Simply giving it a good clean and clearing debris from tracks, or other areas will help prepare your sunroom or patio for winter. The addition of a patio heater will make the space more comfortable, and warm as well.

All of our products are simple to use and easy to maintain. Keep them running in top shape for many years by following the simple guidelines in the table below table.

Why our sunrooms are perfect for winter? 

Imagine sitting outside, with your favourite book, blanket and a cup of hot chocolate without having to clean off something to relax on. Watch the kids play in the yard, enjoy family meals or throw a party! A sunroom or balcony enclosure from Okanagan Covertec will help you stay dry and protect your belongings, while still allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the winter season.

Imagine all the things you can do, when the snow isn’t covering everything. Open the walls and fire up the grill, create magical moments for Christmas morning by putting reindeer tracks in the snow so your kids can see that Santa came, or make it a date night and set a table with candles to enjoy some quality time. Fresh air and natural light are healthy, so why not take advantage of a space that allows you the freedom to spend more time outside.
