Mother-nature never really gives you a break. In the winter its freezing cold and any time spent outside requires many layers of clothing. Then in the summer the scorching heat will drive anyone indoors.
Sun rooms with dual paned glass may be a solution for the winter months, but in the summer retractable outdoor patio screens can give you the opportunity to spend a lot more time outside. Retractable outdoor patio screens can also help to weather against the wind so mother-nature can bring it on!
