When it comes to leisurely outdoor living, sometimes you just can’t have too much of a good thing. Proof is our latest extension of an existing covered patio area. After extending the patio, we enclosed the area, transforming it into a spacious screened porch. The project is located in Columbia, where warm-weather living is always a wonderful gift from nature.
With the original patio space’s size limitations, the homeowner wanted more room for outdoor living. The added space allows the family to more freely move around and “branch out” to relax – fun intended.

As your Columbia screened porch builder, we started the re-creation of this space by extending the original footprint 180 square feet. At the foundation, Archadeck extended the floor out from the covered patio area, using pressure-treated wood decking. We installed the decking on a 45-degree angle with a parting board for interest and aesthetics.
To further enhance the open and airy feel, we fashioned the new exterior knee wall out of sturdy black aluminum railing pickets.
The interior of this screened porch makeover features lighting, a ceiling fan and a beadboard ceiling painted blue – or “haint blue.” This classic, low-country ceiling style has been used throughout history. A blue porch ceiling is believed to ward off insects and more!
A porch extension or refurbish is especially beneficial in our area. Fortunate homeowners here can enjoy the breezes, sights and sounds of Mother Nature on their screened porches almost year-round. If you are ready to expand your outdoor living space, you can depend on Archadeck and trust us as your award-winning builder. We pride ourselves on custom screened porch extensions and upgrades that will provide endless hours of alfresco enjoyment while adding substantial value to your home.
