3 Benefits of Adding a Screened Porch

Increasing your home’s versatility and value are just a start.

One of the benefits of adding a screened porch is that you’ll have three seasons of outdoor enjoyment.

In the final weeks of summer, you may start wishing you could enjoy your patio space for more than a few short months. If only you could take in the refreshing sights, sounds, and smells just a while longer. You can! There are a lot of benefits to adding a screened porch to your home. Here are just a few:

1. Get more enjoyment out of the seasons

The benefits of adding a screened porch begin with the joy of having access to your patio space far longer than summer lasts. Today’s porches offer a variety of window and screen options to protect you from wind, pests, and harmful UV so you can use your space before and after summer. With the option to a heat source like a fireplace and cooling ceiling fans, you’ll enjoy the comfort and versatility your new porch provides for more than half the year. 

2. Increase the value of your home

A screened porch offers the kind of wow factor that not only grabs attention but also adds to your property value. According to experts, buyers love homes that feature this luxurious amenity. And with porch designs that range from the most rustic to the most modern, there is a porch design option that will complement your interior living space perfectly.

Is your home cramped for space? Adding a screened porch will instantly increase your living space by a few hundred to a few thousand square feet, depending on your lot and needs. With proper screening, you can enjoy the outdoors without fighting bugs, hot sun, rain, or other elements – just as you would indoors.
