There are many options you can consider when planning your exterior home renovation such as improving your patio, adding to your landscaping or installing front entryway pavers to boost your curb appeal. However, if you’re looking to give your home a unique and distinctive outdoor space, consider constructing a rooftop terrace.
The experts at Tiefenthaler have extensive experience with this type of architectural addition, both in new construction and renovations to existing homes.
A rooftop terrace is a valuable feature for any home as there are both functional and aesthetic benefits. This exterior addition creates more space for dining and entertaining, especially for homes with smaller yards or where a patio isn’t practical. You can even set up a container garden on your rooftop terrace, which adds greenery and visual appeal to the space. Both professional chefs and amateur cooks can grow an herb garden with fresh items to use in your favorite dishes.
Maintaining a garden on your rooftop terrace also has benefits that impact your wallet. Having greenery and other plants on your roof increases the energy efficiency of your home by insulating it against the elements. You’ll stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, thereby reducing your energy bills. You’re also less likely to experience flooding in your yard, as rainwater is deflected away from the surfaces below and absorbed by plants. Plus, a rooftop terrace can also insulate your home against sound, keeping your home more peaceful.
