The Need for Fresh Air & Ventilation

Thankfully things are beginning to get back to normal [in a fashion], as people’s patience has been wearing thin for some time. There is quite a bit of optimism thanks to the Covid 19 vaccine, but care still needs to be taken. The key to success is a gradual return to pre Covid activities, rather than rushing into things. Millions of people have received their first or second vaccines, which provides a certain amount of protection. Even though the effects of the virus will be significantly reduced, it can still be carried and passed on to others.

As establishments are allowed to open up, and we are able to see friends and loved ones, there are still rules. Two households or groups of up to 6 can now meet indoors, although larger gatherings must occur outdoors.

Permanent Changes & Adjustments in the Way We Live

Getting together outdoors would be great, if not for the unpredictable UK weather! Care has to be taken where people need to enter the home too, perhaps to repair a plumbing or electrical problem. Even in this case there is a real emphasis on ventilation, and opening windows or doors is advised. Many medical specialists believe that there is not enough importance or awareness being placed on the need for fresh air where Covid is concerned. In South Korea, research carried out in a restaurant revealed the danger of mixing indoors. One diner infected two others, after only a few minutes in the same room and at a distance of 4 and 6ft. This is just one of many examples of how contagious the virus is, especially in confined spaces.

Specialist builders such as Allied Build, have noticed a rise in enquiries from customers about the installation of verandas, and similar structures. Homeowners and businesses have had to rethink the way they go about things in an effort to keep themselves and others safe. These changes and adjustments are likely to be pretty permanent, setting new standards in how we live.

Verandas, Glazed Canopies & Smoking Shelters in Essex

Apart from the safety aspect, it's a fact that there are many times when we would prefer to be outside if not for the weather. On the other hand, peace and quiet indoors isn’t always possible either. The advantages of this type of addition can't be overstated, verandas, glazed canopies, extensions etc, allow people to spend more time in the garden. They provide safety, fun, entertainment, comfort and weather protection, and may be kitted out with heating and lighting for use all year round.

It's very probable that we will continue to feel safer when partying outdoors, as once these buildings are installed, people will want to use them to the full.

We work with customers to plan and deliver the latest in bespoke verandas, smoking shelters, glazed canopies and sunrooms.

Walk along any UK high street lately and you will think you are on the continent. Each restaurant, bar etc has it's own outdoor solution, and people are loving it! Not only does it demonstrate an intent to adhere to rules and protect valued customers, it attracts passing trade. Of course temporary solutions aren't as impressive as properly built structures.
