Maximize Summer Enjoyment With a Screened Patio

A big part of the appeal of owning a home becomes ultra apparent during the summer months when we can spend time outdoors. You can extend your summer enjoyment with screens that are fitted to patio and porch openings. When done right, these options appeal greatly to future buyers.

Set a budget, then exploring a variety of options to fit your pocketbook and tastes. With a wide range of products on the market – from motorized retractable screens to do-it-yourself kits from your local building store – there’s something to fit every budget. Start with a trip to the library and research ideas through books and publications on decks, porches and patios.

As far as dos and don’ts,  obtain more than one quote if you are looking to engage a professional service to plan and install your screens.  If you plan to do the project yourself, make sure your basic structure is in good shape. If not, be sure to budget for additional material costs and make repairs before you begin. Measure accurately and ask to see assembly instructions in the kit you buy.

Summit Group partners with Seven Lakes Lifestyle Community in beautiful Porters Lake, NS

Summit Group is proud to represent Seven Lakes Community, A Nova Scotia Lifestyle Community in Porters Lake, just minutes from City of Halifax featuring Detached, Semi-Detached Homes and Cottages, Waterfront Lots and Custom Build options from our builder Synergy Homes.

Seven Lakes Community is The largest Conservation Community in Atlantic Canada, Seven Lakes offers you a place to walk, a place to play and a place for your family to grow; a natural lifestyle that is simply priceless. By embracing the principles of conservation design, we are developing a community not just for today, but for the future.

A CONSERVATION COMMUNITY MEANS A LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT THAT WILL:

  • Reserve over 60% of the existing habitat and significant natural features for your enjoyment- and for generations to come
  • Help protect water sources
  • Give homeowners access to surrounding natural landscapes
  • Maintain the rural character of the community

At Seven Lakes, we believe that a great Community Master Plan is first and foremost a Conservation Design. Inspired by nature, where people are connected to the earth beneath their feet and to their neighbours on the other side of the hedge.

The community’s design incorporates neighbourhood greens that bring communities together. We are creating footpaths and bikeways that connect communities, and we’ve planned places to play that focus on wholesome activities for children.

We are committed to conserving trees wherever we can, and planting new trees to help make our neighbourhoods richer, greener and stronger.

The best of rural and urban living, just 25 minutes from Halifax!
