If you have a stylish hot tub, then why not try to brighten up your property by adding a hot tub enclosure. These offer not just a little decorative element, but also some additional safety too, separating the hot tub from the rest of the patio, conservatory, or garden so that people don’t mistakenly wander in to it.
Hot tub enclosures offer privacy for the people who are using the tub too, and make it a more secluded, relaxing and pleasant space to spend time. If you live in an area where the weather is a little more temperate, then you might find that the extra shade blocks out wind and keeps the tub environment a little milder and more pleasant too, so you can still use the hot tub even towards the end of the summer and in the autumn.
You can get hot tub enclosures made in a range of different materials, including simple wooden fences, glass panels, and uPVC.
In some cases, you might want to get an enclosure made at the same time as the hot tub, alternatively you might decide to add one later once you’ve seen what the tub looks like in-situ. You may opt for one that matches the conservatory or the patio, or you may opt for something that contrasts with it so that it really catches the eye.
There are a lot of builders that make fences and enclosures for spas, hot tubs and even pools. When you’re looking for a builder, try to find one that will show you examples of their work so that you can get an idea of the quality and the kind of look that you can expect from them. Get a few different quotes, and ask for them to be itemized so that you can see what you are paying for. Shop around, and pick the builder that gives you a clear and concise quote that covers everything you expect – that isn’t always going to be the cheapest builder – remember that there is a lot more to getting a quote than just covering the materials and fitting. Do you need planning permission? Does anything around the site need cleared before they can start work? Is the builder fully insured? You should think about all these things when you are shopping around for a contractor to fit your enclosure.
