The weather is warming up, and the outdoors are calling. This is the time of year when people invest time and energy in making their backyards a beautiful place that they envision hanging out in all summer long. That is until the realities of summer in this area hit home. Spending time outdoors is great, but the intense summer heat and sunlight can be a lot to handle, and once the bugs start coming out, it is no longer as nice as you were dreaming about in April. Investing in a screened porch can solve these issues and make it so that you have a beautiful and comfortable place to relax and enjoy the outdoors this season, next season, and for many years to come.
Protection from the Elements
A screened porch has to have a roof (so it is a great upgrade from a simple deck), and that roof will mean that you can enjoy being outside even when it rains. The screens can even protect you from windy rain, but you will probably have to take shelter inside if the wind is really gusting. However, having a screened-in porch for little summer showers means that the fun doesn’t even have to stop long enough to wait out the storm.
A screened porch also offers some visual protection from prying eyes. When you are just out in your yard, even with a fence, it can feel like you are visible to the whole world. Being on a screened-in porch instead makes it so that you have more of a sense of being inside even though you aren’t and more privacy.
Protection from Bugs
The most obvious benefit of a screened porch is protection from the bugs. Secure and complete screening and doors that shut will protect you from most flying insects that pester you, including mosquitos and biting flies. Knowing that you don’t have to deal with those makes it much more enjoyable to plan a day or evening outside, especially if you are thinking about cooking and eating out there. Having the screens also means you can use the space later since bugs won’t be able to reach you even if they are attracted to the deck lighting.
Increased Home Value
If you’re contemplating selling your home anytime in the future. In that case, a screened porch is a valuable addition to your property, giving future buyers a functional, useable outdoor living space that is protected from the elements and free from bugs. Ultimately, a screened porch places a bigger price tag on your home, which is a great reason to invest in this improvement all on its own.
