There are few things more delightful in the summertime than a screen porch. As New Englanders, we recognize the need to make the most of the months we can spend outside. A screen porch will make that easier. Instead of dispersing to your own corners of the house, the whole family will be able to spend time together, outside, and without the bugs. This space can both add value to your home and increase the amount of quality time you spend with your loved ones. Screen porches can do it all.
You don’t need a wrap-around porch to create a protected place for you and your family to hang out (although it wouldn’t hurt). It may be easier than you think to create a protected space to enjoy all summer long. If you already have a covered area at your house, systems like Screeneze can be an easy and budget-friendly solution to creating a place safe from mosquitos and midgies. Costs will significantly increase if you need to build something. However, building something will allow you to customize the space to exactly what you want.
If you’d like to make the room more versatile throughout the year, consider getting custom panels from Upstate Door. These panels would allow you to change out the screens for storm windows, keeping your porch cozy when the weather turns chilly. If you have a fireplace or heater out there, you can get even more time out of it. It can serve as a mudroom when the snow starts to fall.
Screened-in porches are often just a dream, but you might be able to turn that dream into reality more easily than you thought. The first step is finding the right space. Consult with your contractor and talk about what your screen options are. You may even have yours by the end of the summer.
