Screen rooms, once a popular feature of many homes, are returning to the scene. Homeowners still enjoy their enclosed sunrooms, but are seeking more of a connection with the outdoors. Quaker State Construction, located in Carnegie, PA, sees the increase in popularity partly due to the beautiful fall weather experienced in western Pennsylvania. If you are contemplating adding a screen room or screening in your existing deck or porch, consider the following benefits of bringing the outdoors in.
No Bug Spray Needed
One of the more obvious reasons for adding a screen room is to keep out pesky flies, mosquitoes and other intruding insects. Gone will be the days of wielding fly swatters and smelly bug sprays just to enjoy an evening on your back porch. Also, the sounds of nature will not be constantly interrupted by bug zappers while trying to enjoy a quick snooze or afternoon nap in your screened-in porch.
Expanded Living Space
A screen room adds square footage to your home. Whether you use it as a play area, dining area, reading nook or hobby room, the extra space will be a valuable added feature.
Use Not Limited to Weather Conditions
Your time spent enjoying the outdoors is not limited to only sunny days. With a screened-in porch, your “outdoor” fun does not have to be ruined by a rainstorm. In fact, it can be enhanced by the sights, sounds and smells of the fresh rain. Additionally, on those hot sunny days, you can comfortably relax in the shade, while still feeling the breezes of Mother Nature. And what better way to enjoy a fall evening in Pittsburgh than from the comforts of your newly screened-in porch. Add a big screen TV and you are all set for the beginning of football season.
A screen room allows you to connect with nature any time of day without the prying eyes of neighbors. Practicing morning yoga in your pajamas, your kids having an “outdoor” sleepover, having a midnight snack—all of it can be truly appreciated in a natural, secluded environment.
Enhanced Curb Appeal
An extension of the outdoors, while enjoying the comforts of an indoor space, is appealing to many. With a variety of screens available—from aluminum to copper to fiberglass–and the customization provided by Quaker State Construction, your screen room will enhance your home’s curb appeal.
