A Handy Guide to Porch Enclosures

A Handy Guide to Porch Enclosures

All it takes to build a porch enclosure is to add some glass or screen panels along with the right types of flooring.

Are you considering adding some extra room to enjoy your home in? Porch enclosures are a great way to do so. You could take advantage of the porch that is already attached to your home or build a new porch to accommodate whatever your needs might be. At times, all it takes to build a porch enclosure is to add some glass or screen panels along with the right types of flooring, though it depends on how much you are trying to get out of it or which type of porch enclosure that you want. If you wish to expand the amount of use you can get out of your house, consider which porch enclosures can add to your home!

Four or Three Season Room

Usually, you are going to hear a distinction between four season or three-season porch enclosures. The distinction is quite clear. If you wish to use the space as a year-round living space, you will want to ensure that it is totally weatherproofed and adequately insulated. Being certain that you are still going to have enough heat during those chilly winter months is just a crucial part of having a four-season room. On the other hand, if using this porch enclosure during the winter isn’t necessary, and you wish to take advantage of it during the warmer months, you might not need to worry about weatherproofing.

Extra Windows

Adding windows and window frames is an excellent way to upgrade your porch and develop the types of porch enclosures that will work for you. As far as your options go, using code-specific glass planes or having a mix of screen and glass window elements are both beautiful ways to open up the area and help promote more air circulation. This still prevents any bugs from getting inside but goes a very long way in making feel like you’re actually outside. Just make sure to include some window grill designs within your frames if you are worried about security.

Doorways and Walls

Part of making porch enclosures useable is by installing some enclosure doorways and walls. You will want to balance out windows and walls, so you keep the space feeling more open, but walls nonetheless are very important.
