Screened-In Porches: Why You Could Benefit From One This Time of Year
If you have always dreamed of a way to expand your living space while creating a way to spend a little bit of extra time outdoors, it may be time to consider a screened-in porch. It is a great way to get additional space without the headache of an HVAC system, insulation or foundation, and it is typically quicker, cheaper and easier than the addition of an actual room. A screened-in porch can be enjoyed almost year-round, but here are just a couple of the many ways a screened-in porch can prove to be beneficial to you during the fall:
It Can Keep the Bugs Out.
One of the great things about a porch during the fall is that the weather is starting to cool off, which means you can truly enjoy it after a long, hard day at work and long into the night on the weekends. Or can you? The mosquitos and other annoying pests during the day – and especially at night – are so frustrating. Luckily, a screened-in porch is the perfect solution to those pesky pests, as the screen is the ideal barrier to keep them away from you and your guests as well as any food that you may also be trying to enjoy.
It Can Offer Protection from the Weather.
The weather can change outside in an instant here, which can ruin a perfectly relaxing day. If you’re trying to sit outside, relax and get a good read in, this isn’t going to happen if a big storm rolls in and it starts raining. Thankfully, you can get a little bit of protection from the rain if there is a screen along the outside of our porch protecting you from the various weather elements. In addition, the screen can help protect your porch furniture and décor.
