Why You Should Add a Screened Porch

Adding a screened porch to your waterfront custom home can provide endless hours of bug-free outdoor time!

Cooler weather is finally settling in. Why should you deprive yourself of that experience? With a screened porch attached to your waterfront custom home, you can watch the sunset over a nice glass of your favorite beverage and keep an eye on your kids who are out chasing fireflies. Plus, you can continue to chat with friends and family until late into the night. Here’s why you should add a screened porch.

Outdoor Living Space

You can have an outdoor living space all year long. That’s one of the biggest benefits of adding a screened porch to your custom home. As summer ends, use a ceiling fan for the days that are unseasonably hot. As fall comes in, you can drink apple cider, sip tea, and put decorations up. And finally, in the winter you can start up the fireplace and toast marshmallows to your heart’s content. Who wouldn’t enjoy that?

Ward Off Bugs

Bugs and insects can be a huge nuisance. When you have a screened porch, you can keep them out. Whether you want your home even closer to the lake or other body of water, you’ve got to watch out for colonies of mosquitoes and other pests. You can also live next to a bay, a river, or even the ocean. All of these areas are more likely to have swarms of gnats everywhere. This means that your next barbecue or backyard gathering can continue without any interruptions!

Increase Privacy

Finally, a screened-in porched attached to your custom home can increase your overall privacy. Having a close group of neighbors can make life more fun. Still, there are still times where you want to have your own space. You can get away from life’s responsibilities and find time to recharge. More privacy can help you do that, especially if you want a hot tub added as well!
