While the cold winter weather might be driving you to seek warmth indoors, the days of relaxing in the yard are on the horizon. There’s no better way to enjoy all that Maryland’s weather has to offer than outdoors. But sometimes we don’t actually want to be all that way outdoors, getting rained on, sunburnt, or eaten by bugs. A screened porch is the perfect solution.
More Living Space
Building a screened porch or converting your patio or deck will increase the usable living space of your home. You take an outdoor area and turn it into a “room” that you can use like you would any other room in your house: a secure playroom for the kids, craft room (only, with better ventilation), entertaining and dining area, or just a space to curl up and read. All this, without losing the benefits and charm of being outside.
A screened in porch will increase the usability of your outdoor spaces. Every season in Maryland has its share of wacky weather that can send you for cover indoors: spontaneous rainstorms in the spring, blistering sun in the summer, showers of acorns in the fall (okay, that’s probably the squirrels). If you’re already safely under the cover of your screened porch, you don’t have to furiously pack up all your stuff and run inside. You can stay out there and experience the interesting elements of each season.
Free From Insects
The other Maryland thing that a screened porch will protect you from is the bugs, and we definitely have our share. But you won’t have to worry about that. You can relax out on your porch, enjoying the weather without slathering on the bug spray. The mosquitos won’t be able to reach you. This is an especially important consideration for families with young children who could be too small for chemical repellants.
The screened in porch offers more privacy than a standard porch or patio. The frame and the screening will obscure you from view somewhat, so you can read, craft, exercise, or just enjoy your coffee and solitude in peace.
Increases Curb Appeal
The screened porch adds beauty, charm, and usable square footage. This is the magic recipe for increased resale value and curb appeal. This is especially true on the front of the house, not just the back where most people picture a screened porch.
