Screened Porch Enclosures

Screened porch enclosures are a great way to extend your living space to the outdoors.  Imagine being able to plan a family gathering without having to keep your fingers crossed as to the weather, sitting “outside” enjoying the gentle breezes without those pesky bugs and creating a wonderful space to entertain friends and family.  Screened porch enclosures are a great addition to any home.  There are many reasons to consider adding on a screened porch enclosure – let’s take a look at three.

 

 

Great Space to Entertain

A screened porch enclosure construction includes a roof with screened walls.  A screen room can be place on a patio, porch or deck.  Upon construction a great option is to have outdoor lighting or an outdoor ceiling fan installed.  Both of the options will increase the usability of your room.  A screen room is a great space to entertain friends and families.  The design options for setting up your screen room are endless.  As an example, you can set your screen room up with an outdoor dining set for great cookouts or you could set it up with comfy outdoor furniture to relax and enjoy good conversation or a good book. 

 

 

Enjoy the Outdoors without Bugs

Eating or sitting outside is enjoyable until we are overtaken by those pesky bugs.  How many times have you gone “in” because the bugs are biting or just simply won’t leave you alone?  A screen room keeps those pesky bugs out, allowing you to stay out longer and enjoy your time in peace.  No longer would you have to retreat to the house and miss the sounds, smells and sights of a summer day or night.

 

 

Not Bound to Weather

Having a screened porch enclosure can give you the freedom to plan a party, gathering or cookout any time you want.  You won’t have to have a “rain date” just in case.  Actually, the screen room allows you to enjoy watching and hearing a gentle rain without the obvious getting wet if you were standing in it.  The flip side to that is the scorching sun.  A screen room affords you shelter from the sun beating down on you and making you hot and uncomfortable.  With the addition of the optional outdoor ceiling fan, your screen room could be cooler than outside temperature.

 

These days we are all looking for ways to extend our living to the outdoors.  Want to feel the breezes of a summer day, hear a gentle rain or watch the sun go down without being bothered by pesky bugs?  A screened porch enclosure could be your perfect answer!
