How Big Should My Porch Be?
This is a question many of our clients ask us when considering the addition
of an open or screened-in porch.
Here at Archadeck of Central South Carolina, we like to meet with our clients
during the planning stages of any porch project. During this meeting,
we’ll work together to determine the size your porch needs to be
to accommodate all your needs.
Your Custom Screen Room
A screened room, or screened porch, is very similar to a sunroom. The difference
is that rather than using glass windows, we use fiberglass screens to
let the breeze flow freely through the room, creating a space that invites
the outdoors in.
Many Columbia-area homeowners have an idea of what they are looking for
but may not know whether it is considered a sunroom, screen room, or an addition:
Screen porches and sunrooms both allow you to enjoy the outdoors while avoiding unwanted elements of
nature, such as mosquitoes or rain.
A sunroom or addition is an actual interior room that requires insulation and conditioning elements,
such as heating and cooling.
Knowing how and when your family will use the room will help you decide
which style best suits your needs.
Lexington homeowners hired Archadeck of Central South Carolina to convert
their existing screened room into a sunroom (pictured above). With small
children, they wanted a space they could use as an indoor playroom.
Each of our screened porches is custom-made to blend seamlessly with your
home and reflect your personal style, no matter how unique. Our porch
designs reflect beauty, quality, and extended enjoyment. They also add
value to your home.

What Is the Difference Between a Screened Porch and 3-Season Room?
Interpretation is sometimes cloudy when it comes to screened porches and
3-season rooms. These designations could be different depending on where
you live and which builder you ask. In some parts of the country, you
might find that builders consider screened porches to be 3-season rooms.
At Archadeck of Central South Carolina, we define them separately, but
they are not mutually exclusive. We might also call a screened porch a
screened room, outdoor room, or screened-in porch.
A Room with a View

We can build the porch of your dreams, even on a budget.
When it comes to creating a custom porch design for your home, aesthetics
are not the only consideration. A custom Columbia porch design is as much
about how you will use your porch as it is about the way your porch will look.
Archadeck of Central South Carolina specializes in being able to provide
quality outdoor spaces for homeowners with varied budgets and lifestyle
needs. We offer a low-maintenance, budget-friendly alternative to traditional
wood-framed screened porches that still provides the lifestyle enhancement

spatial needs, roof, and interior amenities.
