But if you're in the market for patio door window treatments and vertical shades just aren't your thing, don't worry, you've still got options. Sliding panel track blinds are a novel offering now available in a wide range of materials from natural wovens to fabric to solar screens. As an aside, panel track blinds can also be used as a decorative room divider. You can also consider using multiple horizontal window blinds or shades to cover the area: splitting the shades per-pane (i.e. two if it's a full-glass sliding door) allows you to independently control your two shades. For example, the stationary shade can be lowered while the access shade is raised. In this situation, solar shades are an intriguing option, they'll screen out glare and UV rays while keeping your picture window view, and they're available in a wide range of patterns to compliment any interior environment.
So, what is the solution? 1.The contractor can assume there will be waste on the job and only use the best shaped pieces, ordering extra. This should be figured into the costs. 2.The pieces of bluestone can be saw cut to make them perfectly straight, also an extra cost due to the time involved. 3.Let your contractor know you are aware of this problem and that you expect a good job regarding this situation.
If you're looking for a simple solution, then perhaps modular wood deck tiles would work well. These can cope with a certain amount of cracking in the underlying concrete, without being affected. They're easy to install by just clicking them into place. Once laid, they stay firmly in place and don't need any special surface preparation, adhesives or other fixings. They have a plastic base to allow water to pass easily underneath, and to keep the wood away from the sub-surface. You can tile your whole patio area in only an hour or two.
However, it is possible to have too much sun. Patio awnings allow you to enjoy the sun's warmth without becoming burned by the sun, and provide protection against passing showers too. Patio awnings, canopies or shades are a very useful addition to your outdoor comfort.
Vinyl is the ideal choice if you are looking for a maintenance-free material that will not require staining or painting. Vinyl also last longer than wood and is resistant to decay and rot. Choose the UV resistant vinyl that will not discolor or fade after sun exposure if you are going with this option.
