What Porches Bring to Your Home

If you're looking for ways to improve the exterior of your home, then hiring a porch builder to install a new custom porch is a must-do. Porches can completely transform the overall feel of your backyard. It adds an area from which you can enjoy the beauty of nature while still staying within the vicinity of your home.
Furthermore, it also comes with additional benefits that you and your family can enjoy such as:

1. Increased Appeal and Overall Style of Your Home

Porches can be designed in any way that you want. You can personally dictate to your porch contractor what exact style you prefer for your porch that will enhance the aesthetics of your home. Whether you prefer a deck that doubles the coziness of your home or a more modern take that highlights the style of your home – say the word and your porch contractor will do their best to bring your vision to life.

2. Enjoy Nature in Any Kind of Weather

It’s annoying when unexpected weather changes keep you from your plans to unwind outside. A new porch is an area where you can enjoy the great views of nature while keeping safe from the harsh elements of nature. Furthermore, a professional porch contractor will offer you a choice between an open porch and screened porch.
Both of these types offer a different take on the accessibility and protection of your porch. Cold rains or sweltering summer heat – none of those matters when you’re within the protection given by your porch.

3. Increased Property Value

A lot of people that are looking to buy a new home often look for a readily available outdoor area such as porches or decks. That’s because it showcases the functionality of the home. And depending on the surrounding area, the installation of an open porch or screened porch can affect the overall property value. That’s because both porches offer homeowners a different way to enjoy the backyard space.

4. Affordable Home Improvement Installation

A porch is an outdoor installation which means that your porch contractor doesn’t need to mess around with the structure and interior of your home. This cuts back on the cost that is normally associated with other home installations that require insulation, power rerouting, and other related components.

5. Additional Outdoor Space for Your Home

Installing a new porch means gaining additional space without the need to mess with the interior of your home. An experienced porch builder can create a space that can be transformed in any way that you can imagine. It can be turned into a dining area, an extra lounge, or even an open area that can be used to host all kinds of events.

Looking For A Covered Shelter Over Your Deck?

Open Porch

Choosing an open porch for your home can increase its value. It can be enjoyed in the rain or sun, sheltering you from the elements. Offering a clear view of your property, it is a wonderful place to throw a party or enjoy a good book. We will build a beautiful roof covering your porch, designed to match the exterior of your home.

Pros of an Open Porch

Affordable to Build: It has fewer components due to its simple design. It requires fewer materials and resources to construct thus cutting back on the overall expenses. In addition, it takes less time to construct which makes it an ideal choice for homeowners that prefer a shorter installation period.

Easy to Maintain: An open porch may need to be cleaned more often but it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. The only things you need to regularly look out for are damages brought by wear and tear and exposure to weather elements.

Unrestricted View of the Surroundings: An open porch offers homeowners a full view of their backyard. This is an especially important consideration for homeowners whose properties are within the proximity of coastlines, hills, or other natural formations.

Cons of an Open Porch

Constant Exposure to External Elements: An open porch may come with overhead protection such as roofs or other covers, but it lacks protective screens and windows that keep harsh weather, dust, and debris out of your porch.

Lack of Protection Against Pests: It’s important to determine if your property is a hot zone for mosquitos, flies, and other types of bugs. This is because open porches lack any sort of barrier to prevent them from bothering you while outside on your porch. In addition, small critters such as raccoons and other rodents can climb onto your porch and disturb any items and furniture on it.

Transform Your Deck Into A Covered And Protected Area

Screened Porch

Screened porches offer a comfortable alternative to outdoor fun. Not only are you and your family shielded from the sun and rain, but you can also still enjoy the breeze. Screening your porch will protect you from insects and small wildlife from making a nuisance. It is a great place to entertain guests whether it’s day or night. Dining outside will become a frequent pleasure, without worrying about flies and gnats spoiling the meal. Choosing to screen an open porch can also add curb appeal to your home and increase resale value. You may wonder why you didn’t choose to build one sooner!

We choose to work with Screeneze products, a company that offers many advantages to using their product. They offer a 10-year warranty on their aluminum base and vinyl cap installation system. Screens can span openings up to 150 sq. ft. Even arched openings can be covered, using this product. We can install it using a variety of screen fabrics that you can choose for your individual needs. With their system, it is easy to replace a damaged screen. Quality-made in the USA, we are proud to use this product for our screened porch options.

Pros of a Screened Porch

Additional Protection: Enclosing your porch with a screen and roof provides additional protection against light rain and hot sunlight. This protection can be taken another step further if you opt to fully enclose your screened porch. Depending on the quality of the screen it can withstand extreme temperatures that come with rain and snow.

Keeps Out Unwanted Pests: The screens act as a barrier that keeps out any unwanted insects, rodents, and other small creatures from getting inside your porch. You no longer have to worry about any critters from rummaging around when you go for screened porches.

Cons of a Screened Porch

Costs More to Construct: A screened porch requires more materials, time, and resources to build. The price also varies depending on the type of screen and the extent of its coverage. It’s important to consult your porch builder beforehand to ensure that the costs remain within budget.

Requires Frequent Maintenance: Screens can be damaged over time. It needs to be regularly repaired and replaced to ensure that it continues to provide its protective benefits. You also have to consider whether your area frequently experiences harsh weather since it can easily wear down the screens of your porch.

Limited View of the Surroundings: Although the mesh allows you to view the area past it, screened porches can limit your visibility of the surrounding area.

Which Porch is Right for You?

Choosing Between Open and Screened Porches

Both open and screened porches offer different benefits and drawbacks to the installation of custom porches. As such, any proficient porch builder will tell you that there is no better option when it comes to choosing one porch type over another. It greatly depends on the needs and preferences of the homeowner as well as the style of the house it will be installed in. 

We understand that choosing between the two can be overwhelming, especially if you’re still unsure about what exactly you want. As an experienced porch builder, Deck Guardian will guide you through the entire process. We will answer any question you may have about custom porches and provide you with sufficient information to help you reach a decision that you can be satisfied with.
