On the fence about adding a screened-in porch to your home? Here are some key considerations.
Benefits of a Screened-In Porch
Screened porches are one of the most popular home addition options, and it’s easy to see why.
Here are a few key benefits of adding a screen porch to your home:
Get the Best of Both Worlds. Screen porches act a nice halfway point between an open-air and an enclosed space. You can still feel the breeze—without enduring the rain.
Enjoy Bug Protection. As any Northern Virginia or Maryland homeowner knows, summers and bugs go hand in hand. A screen porch lets you enjoy the outdoors—without the bugs.
Customize from Luxurious to Rustic. Screen porches are protected, so you can add many interior luxuries to the space. (Furniture. Electronics. Décor.) Or, if you’re into a more minimal look, go rustic. These spaces are totally customizable!
Increase the Value of Your Home. Screen porches are hugely popular, and they add usable square footage to your home. When it comes time to put your house on the market, those two things will help you financially.
