Screened-in decks, porches, and patios are not only stylish and enjoyable, they provide multiple benefits to homeowners.
Being outdoors means sharing your space with bugs, birds, and wildlife. Nap times are interrupted by buzzing mosquitoes, meals are spent shooing away flies, and larger wildlife like squirrels and raccoons may pop in for an uninvited visit! You can escape all these nuisances by going inside but then you wouldn’t be able to enjoy the weather and the relaxing calm of the outdoors. Screened-in structures will keep you and your loved ones safe from pesky (and possibly disease carrying) mosquitoes, flies, and larger wildlife anytime of the day or night.
Added Safety and Privacy
A screened-in structure will keep you safe and dry during a pop-up shower and keep kids and pets protected from dangerous stairways. While they can still be seen through, mesh screens provide you with a level of privacy from your neighbors and people passing by.
Year Round Use
Many decks, porches, and patios are abandoned during the winter months, but a screened-in structure can be modified to accommodate year round use. Don’t worry about protecting or packing away your porch furniture in the winter. Simply add some heaters, a wood burning stove, or a fireplace and you can enjoy your winter wonderland in comfort. When the temperatures soar in the summer, you can relax in the shade of your screened-in structure. Add a ceiling fan and you’ll never have to wait for a summer breeze.
Extend Your Living Space
Screened-in decks, porches, and patios allow for you to gain extra living space. The enclosed area provides all the comforts of an indoor environment while you can still enjoy the great outdoors. With plenty of room for dining and relaxing, you can customize your outdoor living space with lighting, fans, televisions, and sound systems that do not have to be transported in and out every time you entertain or want to relax.
Increase Your Home’s Curb Appeal and Value
A screened-in deck, porch, or patio is one of the best investments you can make when remodeling your home. It will increase the overall value of your space and curb appeal, as well as provide years of memories for you and your family.
