Four Benefits of Adding a Screened-In Porch to a Home
Posted February 11, 2021 to Before You Buy: Tips, Advice, Checklists.
One of the things we love most about our company is that we give people structures that make a big impact on the function and value of their home. One of these types of outdoor structures is a screened porch. It’s one of the most useful additions to a Triangle area home, and one that our customers ask for the most.
Here are four reasons why we love building screened porches:
- Keeps nature out: This is probably the biggest benefit of a screened porch. Being able to still enjoy the outside but without leaves, bugs, and so much dirt is the main reason people add a screened porch to their homes.
- Better privacy: You wouldn’t think that a screened porch would add much privacy, but it does. It’s just enough to provide a visual barrier to keep curious neighbors out of your business, especially with home sites getting smaller and smaller and homes being built closer and closer together.
- Add resale value: Screened-in porches are one of those things that buyers love to see in a house they’re considering. It’s a great way to add value.
- Create more living spaces: If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that having extra living spaces in a home can be a necessity. Being able to spread out and get away from each other for a little bit has become a valuable perk. Adding a screened porch adds extra usable living space without the hefty price tag of a full home extension.
A screened-in porch is a great addition to almost any home. It’s always good when a homeowner can add value, character, usable space, and purpose with a single project. Screened-in porches do just that. If you’re interested in adding a screened porch to your home, contact Sierra Structures.
