5 Reasons You Need a Screened Porch

Lots of homeowners are choosing a screened porch rather than having one that is totally open to the elements.

Lots of homeowners are choosing a screened porch rather than having one that is totally open to the elements. If you’re building an entirely new deck or porch, or upgrading an existing one, you should know some of the great benefits of your investment.

Shoo, Fly! Don’t Bother Me!

Spending some time out in the fresh air is a fantastic way to pass the time, and it’s good for you too! However, the bugs can get really annoying. Buzzing, flying, creeping, crawling bugs can really put a damper on your good time, especially those mosquitoes! Screening in your porch or deck will eliminate a lot of those creepy crawlies so you can enjoy your time outside.

Quality Time with Loved Ones

Playing board games, sharing a meal, or just relaxing with your family in your screened porch is a great way to spend some quality time. This late in the summer can get quite busy for families with sports, back to school shopping, and trying to squeeze in that last weekend at the beach. Taking the time just to enjoy being in each other’s company is important too!

Quality Time by Yourself

As important as it is to spend time with your family, it can be just as important to spend some time alone. Get a comfy chair for your screened porch. Sit out there with a good book and just enjoy the quiet time and fresh air. Maybe even try some yoga!

Entertain Outside

A screened porch is a fantastic entertainment space! It’s basically an extension of your home, so you can have some guests outside and some inside. This is especially useful if you don’t have a lot of room indoors. Everyone can be comfortable and you don’t have a bunch of people in the kitchen and under your feet when you’re trying to get that quiche out of the oven!

Increase Your Home’s Value and Curb Appeal

Since that screened porch is an extension of your home, it can add quite a bit of value. Potential buyers will see it as more usable living space, and be willing to pay closer to your asking price.
