With spring just around the corner, it is time to start thinking about cookouts and fun in the sun. The warm weather is perfect for enjoying the great outdoors. However, the weather can be unpredictable during these seasons, from thunderstorms to scorching hot days, you never know what you’re going to get. Why let a little weather stop you from enjoying the beauty of Mother Nature? Here is why you need a screened in porch this spring.

No Pests

We all love a good cookout until the flies start to attack your meal and the bees buzz past your ears a few times. Whether you want to eat, read a book, or take a nice nap while enjoying the breeze, you no longer have to worry about those annoying bugs invading your space. A screened in porch will keep bugs out so that you can enjoy the weather in peace. In addition, this screen will keep any small animals from taking a trip onto your porch when you aren’t there. Squirrels and raccoons won’t be able to destroy your furniture and you don’t have to worry about birds using your patio chairs as a bathroom!


Though a screened in porch Is see through, the mesh provides an additional barrier from you to the outside world. The screen tends to be dark enough that it’s hard to tell what you’re doing inside of it without stopping for a few seconds to look inside. This gives you privacy from those potentially nosey neighbors. If you have a porch that faces the street, you don’t have to worry about strangers passing by and seeing the nice patio furniture and features that you have.

Year-Round Access

When the cold weather rolls around, people typically retire their porch for the season until the weather breaks again. With a screened-in porch, you can use it all year round, despite the cold! The screen not only provides protection from the snow and rain, but it also provides a barrier against strong winds that would otherwise keep you inside. All you have to do is invest in a wood stove, fire pit, or heater for your screened in porch and you can stay nice and toasty while still enjoying the outdoor view! Having this extra layer of protection also keeps you from having to move your patio furniture inside when the weather gets bad. This protection will also increase the lifespan of your furniture and keep it in the best shape.
