Do you love spending time outdoors but struggle to endure the heat and humidity of a Maryland summer? Do you enjoy reading a novel on the back porch after work but hate squinting at your e-reader? If you are ready to bring the outdoors inside, consider one of these surprisingly flexible home additions.
Screened In Porches
Screened in porches are flexible home additions that allow you to enjoy the temperature and warmth of the outdoors without the bugs or glaring sunlight. The roof will protect you from rain, sun, and snow while also letting fresh breezes blow through the screens. Screened in porches allow you to fully view the outdoors and even feel the temperature, without any of the drawbacks. Screened in porches are great places to add additional amenities like a television, recessed lighting, or a ceiling fan.
Three season rooms are screened porches that have additional screen covers made of vinyl or glass. These rooms allow for a beautiful view of the outdoors but allow you to block out nasty weather or uncomfortable temperatures. Since these rooms can be used throughout the year with little discomfort, they are called “3 season” rooms. The only season they are generally ruled out during is winter, due to the cold that simple windows won’t be able to properly keep out.
Just like three season rooms, four season rooms are designed to help you enjoy the outdoors throughout a greater portion of the year. Four season rooms are essentially interior rooms designed for maximum enjoyment of the exterior of your home. Four season rooms typically include HVAC systems, insulation, and electricity. These rooms can be finished like an exterior room or use more traditional interior materials like wood, molding, and decorative light fixtures.
