The Benefits of Adding a Screened Porch to Your Home

T&G Builders adding a screened porch

Adding a screened porch to your home can provide you with wonderful benefits.

If you want a comfortable way to enjoy the warmth and cool breezes of the outdoors without worrying about bugs or weather disrupting your plans, a screened porch is an excellent solution. Adding a screened porch to your home increases your home value, adds space, and gives you a space in which to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about sunburn, rainstorms, or bug bites. If you are interested in the following benefits, it may be worth investing in a new screened porch from T&G Builders. 

A Safe Outdoor Environment for Kids

A screened porch can create a safe, visible play area for young children. Your kids can get some fresh air, even on rainy days. Plus, if you want to make sure rambunctious kids at play don’t disrupt the rest of the house, placing them in the screened porch can help provide some much-needed separation. 

Keep Bugs Away 

Being outside can be a lot of fun, except when you have to spray stinky bug spray before going out or deal with a row of itchy mosquito bites. Additionally, insects like bees or flies can become a problem, especially when eating meals outside. Adding a screened porch to your home can help you enjoy the outdoor weather without placing you directly in the elements. 

Increase Your Home Value

A screened porch will add value and extra curb appeal to your home. When families look to buy a home, they want to imagine their family enjoying the space. This means that they are very attracted to homes with a variety of rooms and unique features, including screened porches. 

Add a Second Family Room 

You can use your screened porch to create a second space for family gatherings and quality time. Depending on how you decorate the space, you can use your porch to eat meals, play games, or just relax. Your screened porch can act as a second family room, facilitating new family memories you can cherish. 

Entertain Your Guests

Adding a screened porch to your home gives you more space to entertain guests. Your neighbors, friends, and family can come over to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company. It can give you the chance to have outdoor picnics or barbeques and offer guests a hang-out space between indoors and outdoors. They will appreciate the shade and protection from the elements. 

Enjoy Some Quiet Time 

Because your screened porch is closed off from the interior of your home, you can use this space as a quiet zone. Any family member can use this area to take a nap, read a book, or get some peace and quiet without actually leaving home.
