Screened-In Porches: Popular Trends and Basic Upkeep Information

From small to large, screened-in porches are becoming very popular in home construction and renovation projects. Screened-in porches offer an excellent area outside of your home that provides you a place that is great for outdoor living as well as inside living. There is really no downside since they only need a bit of maintenance here and there.

Popular Trends with Screened-In Porches

In recent years, the popularity of these types of porches have surged. Homeowners aren’t just wanting a standard porch to sit on and relax. Instead, they’re wanting something that is part of their home and is just as stylish and eye-appealing as their home’s interior.

Many screened-in porches nowadays are being built to include outdoor fireplaces and kitchens to create an additional component for outdoor dining. However, there are still plenty of homeowners who want a screened- in porch built for relaxation and curling up with a good book. Either way, a popular trend is designing the porch so that it can be used year-round. This is done by allowing the screen to be covered with sliding-glass, energy-efficient windows when it’s a bit cold outside.

When it comes to the flooring of the porch, hardwood is the most popular. Whether it is a traditional pine, tongue-and-groove or a Brazilian cherry wood, hardwood is easy to maintain and adds a wealth of beauty and natural charm to the area.

What It Takes to Maintain a Screened-In Porch

It really doesn’t take much to keep your screened-in porch looking great. Some basic cleaning, dusting and mopping will usually do the trick. However, over time, you may need to re-stain the wood to maintain its visual appeal. Ultimately, the main upkeep task that you’ll have to perform is fixing any tears and rips that occur in the screens.

Screened-in porches create the perfect place to relax, entertain and connect with nature. If you’re missing out, contact us today to find out what we can do for you.
