The 4 Benefits of a Screened in Porch

How much time do you spend on your porch?

Adding a screened in porch to your property offers year-round benefits. A porch allows you to enjoy the great outdoors while minimizing some of its more annoying or inconvenient aspects. To learn more about all of the great benefits of the screened in porch, read on.  

Don’t Bug Out

If you don’t like all those bugs, especially on warm summer nights, a screened in porch is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while keeping mosquitos and other pests away. You will be able to read, nap, and even dine without worrying about bugs flying into your food. You also will not have to burn often intense and foul smelling candles or cough up a lung dousing yourself in bug spray to enjoy the great outdoors.  

Increase Privacy

While the mesh screen of a screened in porch is see through, it does create a direct barrier between your porch and your neighbors. It also prevents passersby from seeing exactly what’s going on inside your porch easily, as they would have to non-discretely stop and stare for a few seconds to know for sure.

Year Round Use

With a few additions, you can actually use your screened in porch as an extension of your living space year round. Unlike uncovered decks and patios, which are abandoned from roughly fall to spring, screened in porches protect your furniture from wind, rain, and snow. Adding a wood stove can actually make it a cozy place to sip cider in colder weather.

Extend Your Living Space

It is not uncommon for people to leave their decks and patios abandoned for most of the year. Summers get too hot, winters too cold, springs too wet, and all manner of other inclement weather can take hold. Many people are simply not that outdoorsy, or their outdoor living space is impractical. A screened in porch allows you to get over all of these hurdles.
