Why do homeowners choose to build a screen in porch?

Screen in porches expand your living space from the indoors to the outdoors. They create a covered and enclosed space to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors without the inconveniences. Many homeowners prefer a screened in porch over an open porch due to the pollen around the Charlotte area. Screen in porches help to keep out unwanted bugs, debris, pollen, and harsh winds. A screen in porch is a great solution for a super sunny area, adding shaded protection to enjoy warmer days. If you’re looking for a room you can enjoy year-round in the Charlotte climate, a 3-season room may be what you’re looking for.

What’s the difference between a screen in porch and a 3-season room?

A screen in porch is a permanent roof structure enclosed with roll screening, unlike a 3-seasonroom which has 4-track windows. The main difference between the two is screening vs windows. Both screen in porches and 3-season rooms can be enjoyed rain or shine, but when it comes to chillier days, a 3-season room will hold in heat better than a screen in porch. Vertical 4- track windows provide a more durable, versatile, and enclosed space. If you’re looking for a space you can enjoy year-round in the Charlotte metro, opt for a 3-season room. If you’re looking for the perfect mix of indoor/outdoor space, opt for a screen in porch.
