April 8, 2020

If you are looking for a way to spruce up your home, consider adding a porch. A porch is a comfortable space where you and your family can appreciate the great outdoors. Having a porch is like adding a new living space to your home situated outside. Whether it is a small or large porch, installing one can create a space perfect for entertaining one or two people or a large crowd.

Adding value to your home

Adding a porch to your home can increase its curb appeal. A beautiful porch can make your home look more inviting. It can also improve your home’s aesthetic appeal especially when it complements your home’s architectural style and design. In general, a lovely porch can be your home’s focal point and can create an impressive entrance; thus, adding more value to your home. Potential home buyers will be impressed with the curb appeal your porch will provide, therefore increasing your chance of selling your home at a much higher price.

Should you go for a screen porch?

Porches can be designed in two different ways – open porch or screened porch. Both are beautiful and offer different benefits. An open porch is a good choice because it offers unobstructed views of the outside, requires less maintenance and lets you enjoy nature and the outside area without worrying about the rain or the harmful rays of the sun. However, some homeowners prefer screened porches due to several reasons.

What are the benefits of a screened porch?

A screened porch might be what you need for your home. Here are the benefits you can get from installing a screened porch:

  • Animal protection
    If you live in an area where local critters are common like raccoons, a screened porch will prevent them from entering your property. You can enjoy your time outside without having the need to deal with these critters.
  • Shelter from the weather
    With a screened porch, you can enjoy the great outdoors without worrying about the weather. Whether it’s raining hard or the summer sun is shining brightly, your screened porch will provide shade and protection.
  • Versatility
    Screened porches are great because you can put in appliances and furniture such as TV, stereos and couches – even heaters too, making your porch a comfortable space to hang out with.
  • Bug off
    During the summer, mosquitoes and other bugs are common so staying on your porch can be uncomfortable. With a screened porch, you can stop these insects from disturbing you. You can enjoy your porch without the fear of getting bitten by insects.
