Build a Screened Porch to Extend Your Living Area

Decks, patios, and porches allow homeowners to enjoy the outdoors when the weather is pleasant, alternatively, many people also want to be outdoors even when the weather is inclement. A screened porch is a great way to extend your living area to the outdoors without having to deal with those undesirable elements. If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the outdoors throughout the year, a screened-in porch may be a perfect option for you. The licensed general contractors at Prince & Sons, Inc. of Durham have performed a variety of screened porch projects in the Triangle area and would be happy to give you an estimate and collaborate about what it would take to give you that outdoor living space you’ve always dreamed of.

Benefits of a Screened Porch

  • Great for Entertaining – With a screened porch you have the opportunity to entertain without having to worry about being bugged by pesky insects or inclement weather. With summer temperatures in the area averaging well into the 80’s and even 90’s, it’s difficult to enjoy a deck or patio during these hot months. A screened-in porch enables you to let your style shine with outdoor furnishings, as they’ll be protected from the elements, unlike deck or patio furniture.
  • Additional Dining Space – Is your kitchen simply too cluttered for the entire family to sit and eat? If so, why not add a dining table to your screened-in porch and enjoy a bit of the outdoors over dinner? With the relatively mild weather that we experience in North Carolina, you can eat outside nearly year-round.
  • Increase Your Living Area – Is your living area extremely cramped? With a screened porch built off of your living area, you can have french doors installed and open them up to give you an expanded living space.
  • Use Screened Panels to Expand The Seasons – During extreme winters, even in North Carolina, spending significant time on your screened porch may not be feasible. This is why you can utilize interchangeable screened panels, which allow you to switch the screened panels with panels made of glass, turning your porch into a year-round living space.

Convert a Deck or Patio Into a Screened Porch

If you have a patio or deck that you’d like to convert into a screened porch, the general contractors at Prince & Sons, Inc. would be more than happy to come out to your home to brainstorm the possibilities. While we all love our decks and patios, we know that we don’t enjoy them enough due to the constant exposure to the elements. With a screened-in porch you can truly have the best of both worlds.
