Consider a Screened In Porch

Consider a Screened In Porch

Keep the bugs out and the fun in

Love to spend time outdoors, but cringe at the thought of getting eaten alive by mosquitos or greenheads? You may want to consider a  screened in porch.  Besides being a safe haven away from bugs, there are many benefits to adding an outdoor space to your home.
Keep Bugs Away – Enjoy the out-of-doors without being harassed by insects and bugs. Being outside can be a pleasant experience until you start dealing with swarms of mosquitoes, flies, bees and wasps. Having a screened porch allows you to relish the outdoors without having to deal with pests.

A Safe place for the Kids to Play – The perfect outdoor play area, even on a rainy day, a screened in porch provides a safe, enclosed space for your family to experience the outdoors.

Increase the Value of Your Home – Adds value and curb appeal - Most people do not realize that a porch that is enclosed adds value to their home and also adds wonderful curb appeal. Very helpful when your home goes on the market.

A Second Family Room for Quality Time –  A screened in porch lets your family spend quality time together, eating meals, playing games and having great conversation.

Escape for Some Quiet Time – Because it can be closed off from the interior of your home, a screened porch can give you and your family a separate environment to take a nap, read a book, or simply get some peace and quiet.

Get Creative With the Décor – Unlike the rest of your home, a screened-in porch is easy to get creative with the design, and there are no hard and fast rules to stick to. Any style or theme you can envision can work on a porch, and the décor and furnishings are less expensive and easier to experiment with.
