Deck to Screened Porch Conversion in Columbia SC

Do you have a deck that you love, but wish it could be more usable? These Columbia SC homeowners had a large wood deck and a vision to create a more usable outdoor space. Archadeck of Central SC helped them achieve their ultimate outdoor living desires by converting part of their deck into a screened porch.

A question we are often asked is about converting an open deck to an enclosed porch. If you are looking at your existing deck and wondering if it could be made better, call on the outdoor living design specialists at Archadeck. We can tell you if your deck has enough support for adding a roof and screened walls. We can also tell you if it can be made structurally sound for a conversion.

Trust our screened porch designers to create your ideal porch design

These homeowners wished to add an enclosed space to the back of their home. Archadeck of Central SC created a beautiful screened porch design. The porch features an open gable roof. Not only is the open gable an eye-catching design, it allows for additional ventilation inside the space. We installed a ceiling fan for even better airflow and cooling off. The tall ceiling makes the porch feel spacious and grand. The painted wood finish and open rafters offer a farmhouse design aesthetic.

Furthering the usability of the space, we designed a new deck landing where these homeowners and their guests can enter the screened porch from the yard. The screened porch is accessible from inside the home, from the deck, and from the yard.

Composite deck flooring adds low maintenance and style

These Columbia SC homeowners chose TimberTech composite decking for their porch floor, and for the new landing and stairs. Archadeck of Central SC installed the screened porch flooring in a chevron pattern with a center parting board. This offers visual interest and avoids perpendicular end-to-end seams between long lengths of decking boards.
