A screen room can be an excellent addition to the home, but there are certain things that need to be considered before it is built. Here are a few things to think about:
Opt for Low-Maintenance, Complementary Materials
Any addition that is made to your home needs to complement the rest of the home. It should look as if though it is part of the original home rather than something that was added on later. This includes your screen room. At the same time, you should make sure that the materials that are used for the screen room are low-maintenance so that you can minimize the time that you’ll have to spend on maintaining the room.
Make Sure the Room Will Keep the Insects and Bugs Out
Most people tend to think about the screens along the exterior and side of the screen room in order to keep bugs out. However, bugs can also come from underneath the deck boards. Therefore, you should consider fiberglass screening or some other type of material to keep the insects out.
Choose the Most Convenient Location to Build
When you are determining where you would like the screen room to be added on, you need to make sure that you choose an area that is convenient. For example, if you plan on using the screen room for outdoor eating, then you will want to make sure it is built close to your kitchen. Don’t worry if there isn’t a door already, as it can easily be added for necessary access.
The most important consideration when it comes to your screen room is the designer and builder. Make sure that you choose a licensed and insured company who is familiar with the construction of screen rooms.
