Plan for a Beautiful Patio Cover this Spring

Protect yourself from the April showers this month! What better way to do that than with a new patio cover? While it warms up out there, you can also protect your eyes and skin from the sun. There are many reasons to add a patio cover to your home, including the fact that it will increase your property value and add curb appeal. If you’re thinking about it, consider Liberty Builders to help, we’re the patio cover experts.

Patio Covers are a necessity in the San Antonio area. They provide shade from the sun and can protect other property during inclement weather like springtime thunder storms. Although Liberty Builders of Texas can build you a conventional wooden construction patio, patio roof systems and carports, most of our customers decide to move forward with a more energy efficient and maintenance free system.

Our patio covers are designed and constructed from a high quality structural aluminum panel. These panels are permanently laminated to an expanded polystyrene foam core. The insulated covers that we build will insulate against the heat and cold giving you the ability to enclose them into a screened porch or glass sunroom in the future.

We have multiple color options available for your new cover. Don’t forget to use some of our upgrades like ceiling fans, floodlights, fluted columns, and even stereo speakers. Just like all of the products we offer, they come with limited lifetime product and labor warranties. And remember, all our covers are also maintenance free!

We’re here to help you achieve your patio cover goals and will recommend the best options for you and your house. Call Liberty Builders for a free in-home consultation today.

Liberty Builders is your Room Addition Professional Expert

Looking to expand on your property? We’re exterior renovation company you’re looking for. Liberty Builders focuses on three types of room additions for your home: insulated glass patio enclosures, porches and screen rooms, and the Eze-Breeze sliding panel porch enclosure. Keep reading to find out which option is best for you and your home.

Insulated Glass Patio Enclosures
Although Liberty Builders of Texas can build you a conventional wooden construction addition, most of our customers decide to move forward with a more energy efficient and maintenance free system. Whether you have an existing roof or patio that you want to convert into air conditioned space, Liberty Builders can help design the perfect enclosure to fit your needs. Not only do we use the insulated aluminum roof and wall panel system in your sunroom enclosure, we build around our premium energy saving windows and doors. Doing this helps your sunroom achieve the best performance in energy loss prevention while benefiting from the best product warranties in the industry. There are multiple color options available for your new room addition, as well as many styles and configurations for your room enclosure so make sure you contact Liberty Builders for a free design consultation.
Porches and Screen Rooms
If you have been looking for a great way to upgrade your current patio cover or need to build a complete patio enclosure, then consider a screened enclosure. We can help you create a great outdoor room to enjoy those bug infested summer days or cool fall breezes. Like our patio covers and carports these screen rooms are installed using an aluminum insulated panel to cover the porch and can even be used as a knee wall that creates a barrier between dirt and debris.
The Eze-Breeze Sliding Panel Porch Enclosure
The porch enclosure system gives you two ways to enclose your outdoor spaces. Vertical Four-Tracks open up 75% of your window area for ventilation, while side sliders open half way. These panels are custom made to fit any space, complementing any style home with clean lines and pleasing proportions. The lightweight, vinyl-glazed panels can be raised to open up 75% of the window area to the breeze, or can be easily removed and stored, leaving screens in place. Panels tilt for easy cleaning and can be ordered in clear, bronze, and gray tints to reduce the sun’s glare and solar heat gain.
For an attractive, spacious and wide-open look, nothing beats the slide slider. Available in two and four track versions, these full-length panels move back and forth at the touch of a finger on corrosion-resistant nylon rollers. Like Vertical Four-Tracks, they can be lifted out easily for storage or cleaning, and ordered in clear bronze, and gray tints. The Eze-Breeze Garage Door screens are an affordable way to get more use out of your garage. Their rugged screens slide across the garage door opening at the touch of a finger, creating a well-ventilated, screened-in area where you can work or play in comfort without losing the ability to park your vehicles. The Eze-Breeze system is lighter and more affordable than conventional glass sunrooms. The tough vinyl glazing returns to original shape within minutes if distorted.

Do any of these projects sound appealing to you? Call Liberty Builders for your free in-home consultation.

Reduce Your Exterior Home Maintenance Costs

Your house is an extension of you. If the exterior looks bad, so do you. The outside of your home should be attractive, inviting, and not appear to be in need of major repairs. If it is, however, don’t worry too much, and keep in mind that cost-effective exterior home maintenance is definitely possible. It just takes time, research and the right amount of motivation.

Taking the time to choose just the right materials for your home exterior projects will cut down on future frustrations and repetitive replacements. Here are some great options:

Metal roofing is a great investment because it protects against fire and bad weather. It’s also great for reflecting sunlight to reduce cooling costs in the summer and insulate in the winter. Met roofs can last up to 60 years.

Vinyl siding is a cheap, low-maintenance substitute for traditional wood when choosing a siding material to protect your home. Some perks to vinyl siding are that it’s perfect for larger houses where painting would be difficult, the material is synthetic and doesn’t require any finishing, and it is also unaffected by insects and water.

A fiberglass or metal door offers an attractive alternative to your entryway with minimal maintenance. With its weather-tight fit that seals out water and air leaks, you’ll reduce your energy bill, and by choosing a fiberglass or metal door, you’ll protect your home from intruders, extreme weather conditions, and pests.

Your final alternative to reduce exterior home maintenance is opting for a composite deck, which will prevent splintering, warping, and rotting. Made from a mix of wood and plastic, composite decks don’t lose their strength and beauty over time as a result of age or weather damage. Upkeep will be minimal as you’ll won’t have to repaint or sand your deck.

Renovations Engineered for Efficiency

When remodeling, homeowners are looking for ways to increase the value and functionality of their home. And what better way to do that than by upgrading to the latest and greatest in home efficiency?

Plugging up leaks that allow cold and hot air to slip into your house and drive up your energy bill is an important first step in creating an energy-efficient home. These leaks are often found around doors and windows, but could also be hidden in your attic.

That’s where we come in! From attic insulation to energy-efficient windows and room additions, Liberty Builders of Texas has the knowledge and training to install the best products on the market. Products that will not only impress potential buyers, but will help you live comfortably and save you money in maintenance and energy costs year after year. Here are just a few ways we can help:

  1. Windows – Replacing old, leaky windows with higher-efficiency models can make your home greener to begin with. Add in Liberty’s Generations Windows and you’ll experience up to a 40% decrease in energy costs! And if that isn’t enough, at Liberty Builders all San Antonio windows and doors are upgraded with our Secure Glass Package to protect against break-ins and reduce outside noise by 50% when compared to ordinary glass.
  1. Doors – Having a quality exterior door that isn’t wood or a heavy metal can help reduce drafts and cut energy bills drastically while improving your home’s appearance. At Liberty Builders, we believe in Therma-Tru fiberglass doors because they offer 5X greater insulation value than wood and more than 2X the air infiltration performance of high-quality steel.
  1. Patio Enclosures – Whether you have an existing roof or patio that you want to convert into an air-conditioned space or are starting from scratch, Liberty Builders can help design the perfect enclosure to fit your needs. Not only do we use the insulated aluminum roof and wall panel system in your enclosure, we build around our premium energy-saving windows and doors to help your sunroom achieve the best possible performance in energy loss prevention.
  1. Attic Insulation – “It turns out that about half of the homes in the United States are under-insulated,” says Kateri Callahan, president of the Alliance to Save Energy. With those odds, there’s a good chance your home isn’t as insulated as it should be, resulting in major energy loss. Our offering of Owens Corning attic insulation can cut heating and cooling costs by up to 20%, keeping your home comfortable all year round.

Renovating for efficiency can seem like a daunting and expensive task, but it doesn’t have to be. Plan your renovation in stages with Liberty Builders of Texas and your home will be energy efficient in no time! Give us a call today at (210) 714-1655 for a free in-home consultation!

Outdoor living space with beautiful fireplace

Why Build a Patio?

How often have you told your children to go outside to play?  These days, many kids are glued to the TV, Smart Phone, Tablet or Gaming device.  It is vital to give them a space to play and get fresh air and exercise.  In fact, that’s pretty good advice for the whole family.  An addition to your home can seem like an overwhelming project (and pain and expense) but Liberty Builders of Texas can work closely with you to work within your budget, your timeframe, and to give you just what it is you need.

Did you know a patio or veranda can actually help reduce your energy costs?  It provides shade, much like a tree or a large umbrella.  It can reduce the bright light entering your home by creating a kind of canopy.  Liberty Builders of Texas understands this concept when coming up with designs that meet your needs.  With that beautiful Texas Fall on its way, wouldn’t it be nice to have that kind of area to enjoy with family and friends?

Creating a nice outdoor living area is also a great way to upgrade your home without the expense of a full renovation and certainly without the hassle and stress.  An open-air space can add great value to your home when it comes to resale as well.  Many people are looking for that outdoor space for their family.

Liberty Builders of Texas offers great financing and discounts for senior citizens and military.  Give us a call and let us show you how to really enjoy the great outdoors from the privacy of your own backyard.

Patio Covers – Enjoy Your Backyard The Way You Deserve

Liberty Builders of Texas constructs durable, affordable, and enjoyable patio roof systems and slabs. In the past few years Liberty Builders has doubled it’s patio business as South Texas homeowners realize the benefits of maintenance free, life time materials for their backyard enjoyment.

Most San Antonio homes do not have patio roof systems or patio slabs. Even when homes do, the materials and construction is often of poor quality. Liberty Builders recently had the pleasure of completing a project for Mr. & Mrs. De Leon on the Northside of town.

  • The project area  at the start of the construction.

  • Construction begins

    

  • Due to the poor construction of the existing slab, Liberty Builders demolished and excavated the existing patio slab. Notice how the only metal reinforcement is cheap chicken wire, not even laid in the concrete. Unfortunately, this is what we usually find when we remove slabs.

  • Liberty Builders patio covers and slabs are built properly. Below are the preforms with 1/2″ rebar every 12″ tied into the homes foundation. Our covers are built with lifetime insulated metal that will never rot, warp, crack or peel.

  • Once we completed the concrete pour and the patio installation, our happy customers were left with a backyard to enjoy.
