Benefits of a Screened-In Porch 

The advantages of a screened-in porch include: 

  • Bug-free enjoyment: It can be uncomfortable to stay outdoors with bugs distracting you. With a screened-in porch, you don’t have to worry about bugs. 
  • Increased living space: A screened-in porch offers extra space. It can be used as a game room or a reading nook. 
  • Outdoor living: Screened-in porches protect you from the sun’s heat and offer shelter when it rains. You can enjoy fresh outdoor air in the comfort of your own home. 

A well-designed screened-in porch enhances the architectural appeal of your home,  creating a seamless transition between interior and exterior living spaces while adding value and charm to your property. 

How to Maintain a Screened-In Porch 

Screened-in porches can last several years but do require maintenance. You can vacuum the screens to remove accumulated dirt and debris, scrub any remaining dirt or stained areas, and then rinse with clean water using a hose. Dust the windows and sweep the floors whenever you see fit.
