If you have an outdoor seating area to serve customers that can be tricky some of the time, most of the time, or all of the time you can offset those weather problems with an enclosure. Wind, rain, sleet and snow, even heat can be deflected with fabric walls. The addition of heat lamps in the winter months or removing sections in summer months will allow for virtually year round use of patio seating.
When summer draws to a close and the scents of fall are in the air we turn our focus to winter planning. Stock up on firewood, check the seals on windows and doors, remove dead plants from the flower pots and have furnaces checked and flues cleaned. Heating bills are added to household and business budgets, and for some business owners there is the potential loss of revenue particularly for the hospitality industry.
