The Benefits of a Screened Porch for Your Home

Many homeowners are opting for a screened porch rather than one that is totally open.

Many homeowners are opting for a screened porch rather than one that is totally open. Whether you’re investing in a totally new screened outdoor space or adding a screen to your existing space, it helps to know the benefits of your investment. Here are just a few of the many benefits of installing a screened in porch.

  • Enjoy the outdoors, without the bugs– Spending time outside is fun, and it’s great for your health. The not so great part is dealing with the bugs. Insects and other creepy-crawlies are a nuisance, and some of them bite which is just a pain. Having a screened porch or deck allows you to enjoy your time outside without dealing with all those annoying bugs.
  • Quality time with your family– There are many things you and your family can enjoy while spending time on your screened porch. You could play board games, relax, or share a meal.
  • Take some quiet time out– If you enjoy reading or napping outside, or if you just want some quiet time to relax by yourself, a screened in porch is the perfect place to do that. Having a screened porch on your home enables you to spend as much time as you can get napping or relaxing in the fresh air.
  • Outdoor entertainment space– Your friends and family will love your screened porch too! A screened porch is the perfect outdoor entertainment space. Rain or shine, you have a place to spend time with your guests.
  • Great place for kids to play– If you have children, you know they like to spend as much time as possible outside. Kids don’t care what the weather is doing, they just want to play. This is another thing that’s really amazing about a screened porch. No matter the weather, there is a safe place for your little ones to play and get some of that energy out. It is also a great outdoor space for especially young children. It enables them to spend time outdoors in a somewhat controlled environment.
  • Add value and curb appeal to your home– An enclosed outdoor space can add a lot of value to a home. Potential buyers see that as more living space, which is great when you go to sell your home.
