We hope that if you are at home, affected by the COVID-19 crisis, that you are enjoying quality family time. Perhaps you are spending more time outdoors, escaping from the stress of work-at-home and home schooling. Have you noticed the influx of mosquitoes during your time spent outdoors?
Archadeck of Birmingham hopes that even though life is turned upside-down for many of us, that you are finding your own silver lining. Spring has officially sprung, and warmer temps are allowing us to step outside for fresh air and sunshine. If you are spending time on an open porch, deck, or even just in an open yard, you are probably using lots of mosquito spray. Those things are everywhere – already! Archadeck of Birmingham can help!
Keep the skeeters at bay with a new screened porch.
According to the CDC, the rate of mosquito-borne and tick-borne illnesses is on the rise in Alabama. This is due in part to better reporting, but it is also because there are more disease-carrying ticks and mosquitoes. Populations are exploding across the United States.

Archadeck of Birmingham can design and build a screened porch for your home, which will help keep mosquitoes, ticks, and other creepy crawlers OUTSIDE, where they belong. A screened porch will still allow ample fresh air and sunshine, with screened openings to eliminate a great deal of the threat of pest intruders.
If you want to take your pest protection a step further, and obtain protection from pollen, we offer custom Eze-Breeze porch designs that will offer great relief.
Eze-Breeze porches are screened porches, which have the addition of 4-track vinyl windows, that can be left closed during high-pollen periods and opened up to 75% of the screened openings when conditions are better. These custom porches are often referred to as 3-season rooms or 4-season rooms, depending on whether they include an outdoor fireplace. They can even be used when days are cool, but the sun is warm – like a sun porch!
Get year-round enjoyment with a custom sunroom design!
If you are looking for the most usable outdoor living space, Archadeck of Birmingham offers custom sunroom designs. Our sunrooms are actual enclosed room additions with large walls of windows for optimum sunlight entry. They also include insulated walls, heating and cooling, and fabulous interior finishes. What’s more, you don’t have to choose ONLY a sunroom. Our sunrooms are typically accompanied by a deck or patio outdoor living space – our sunroom outdoor living combinations will give you the best of both worlds.
Can your deck or porch be converted to an outdoor room?
If you currently have an open porch or deck, which you are considering converting to a screened in space, Archadeck of Birmingham can help you determine whether it is possible. With proper existing structural framing, your open space could be converted to an outdoor room. Footings and structures must meet essential load criteria in order to add walls and a roof, and we can tell you if your space is a good candidate for conversion!
