Screened in Porch
5 Reasons to Install a Screened in Porch This Spring
Our name may be Excel Fencing and Decking, but we’ve got a lot more in our wheelhouse besides those two options. One of our favorite home renovations is a screened in porch, and in this post, we’ll give you five reasons why.
Screened in Porch Provides Protection From the Elements
There is no need to worry about being caught in the rain with a screened in porch! In the summer, sometimes the only relief from the heat to be found is in the shade, and a porch provides that and more. Create a more contained breeze with clip-on or standing fans and recline on your outdoor furniture. No sunscreen? No problem! Too humid to be stuck indoors but too wet to venture outside? A screened porch wins again!
No More Bug Spray
Bugs begone! As with sunscreen, leave the sticky stuff behind and find protection from the mosquitos while still enjoying the outdoors. Essentially, screened porches let the nice things (i.e., warm breezes and fresh air) in and keep the unpleasant things (the elements and bugs) out. Need we say more?
A Screened in Porch Adds Curb Appeal
Whether or not you’re looking to put your house on the market, adding curb appeal and investing in your home is a good idea. Installing an appealing screened porch not only makes your home look nicer but also adds more square footage and functionality to the indoor property. Excel’s porches can be customized to fit within an incredibly diverse array of aesthetic styles, giving your home a unique look and feel, upping its value and increasing its curb appeal to potential buyers, all in one fell swoop. And you’ll enjoy using it, too!
Nervous about letting your dog out to roam without a leash? Let your furry friend spend some time outside without having to worry about a wild dash after the nearest squirrel. Got a puppy to house train? Let them roam about your screened porch with the peace of mind of knowing they can’t make too much of a mess.
What a View
As you know, we love a good backyard deck, but sometimes it’s nice to have a view from the front of your home instead of the back. Maybe your well-tended flower beds are clustered around the front door, or you like watching your kids run around the neighborhood after dinner. Depending on which way your house faces, you might even be able to watch the sunrise from your porch and the sunset from your deck– or vice versa. It’s the best of both worlds with a screened porch.
