Screened-In Porches Make Versatile Additions

A screened-in porch may be the addition that everyone needs to their home. Some of the best benefits of having a screamed in porch are:

Added living space– A screened-in porch can be a huge added living space to your home. With advancements in technology and outdoor furniture, you will realize that screened-in porches can be pretty unique these days.
Higher home value– While it is not quite the same as actual square footage, a thoroughly built screened porch is considered to be a value-adding structure. Added attraction- A screened porch is one of the best ways to catch the eye as it adds depth and a hot spot to a backyard.
Weather protection– Screened-in porches provide homeowners a good bit of protection from the crazy weather but still give you the ability to let you still enjoy the fresh air.
Pest protection– A screened porch allows homeowners to enjoy the fresh air without having to worry about bugs and animals.

Some of the best screens for your porch are aluminum, copper, brass, or fiberglass. Fiber and Aluminum are the most commonly used when establishing a screened porch. When you have windows in your screen porch that can be removed or held back it will extend the use. When you are planning to decorate a screen porch, first determine how the room will normally be used. A screen room that is used for entertaining will need enough comfy seating for guests and a coffee table or maybe a few side tables for beverages or snacks. Construction materials will have a significant impact on the style and cost of your screen porch. Wood is a widely favored flooring choice for these spaces. Cedar is a bit more expensive than some others, but it will hold up in all different situations. Plastic decking created from recycled materials is more expensive than wood, but it’s almost maintenance-free. The overall cost of a brand new screen porch can differ greatly. If you start with a 12×12-ft screen room that matches the style of the house, be ready to pay $5,000- $10,000. For a custom look, you could expect to pay up to $25,000 or even more.
