Benefits of Building Screened Porches
Screened porches can be custom built and added to your existing porch to make it more comfortable to spend time in. Screening a porch provides a balance between being inside and outside, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors without being directly exposed to bugs, heat, cold, or rain. Screened porches are a great addition to any home, providing a comfortable and protected space to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you’re looking to screen in an existing porch or build a new one, there are several important considerations to keep in mind.
Screening an Existing Porch
To screen in an existing porch, we will assess whether it is possible to do so with the available space. If it is, we can add screen windows made of mesh or build frames to hold fiberglass walls or windows, similar to those in a sunroom.
Building a New Screened Porch
When building a new screened porch, it’s important to plan carefully, including considering the location of the porch and the amount of sun it will receive. A porch located at the back of the home, where it can receive direct sunlight, is often the most practical and comfortable option.
One of the main benefits of a screened porch is the protection it offers. It allows you to enjoy the feeling of being outside without the direct exposure to bugs, heat, cold, or rain. It’s a great place to relax, eat, or simply listen to the rain without getting wet. A screened porch or sunroom can also be a great place to nurse your plants and protect them from outdoor animals or pests.
Another benefit of screened porches is their versatility. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as a hangout spot for your dog, a tranquil room for relaxation, or an extra space to house your patio furniture. If the weather permits, you can open the windows and doors or screens to the porch to allow for easy access. If you don’t want to interact directly with the heat or sunlight, you can keep the screens closed and simply enjoy the brightness of the afternoon.
Overall, screened porches and sunrooms provide a comfortable and protected space to enjoy the outdoors, offering protection from the elements and versatility for a variety of uses. Whether you’re looking to screen in an existing porch or build a new one, there are several important considerations to keep in mind to ensure a successful and enjoyable space.
