From escaping the hot summer sun to enjoying a light rain outside, open porches and patio covers allow homeowners to experience the outdoors while still being protected overhead. With a roof and defining columns, open porches truly are an outdoor living room. Like all of our additions, Archadeck Outdoor Living custom designs open porches to blend seamlessly with the architecture, color and finishes of the existing home.
Open porches are perfect for homeowners who want to enjoy their yard outdoors but remain under cover. Unlike screened porches, open porches offer unimpeded views of the backyard and keep conversation and interaction with those outside the porch flowing. Because the walls aren't closed off in any way, they also tend to feel larger than sunrooms and screened porches.
A well-designed open porch or patio cover will increase the amount of time you spend outdoors and add value to your home. At Archadeck Outdoor Living, we'll start by discussing how you intend to use the space and budget you have for the addition. That will give us an idea of the size you may need. From there, we'll create a design with your goals in mind. Do you want a space to cool off in the summer? We may suggest adding a fan. Would you like to use your open porch in the cooler months? We could plan space for an outdoor fireplace.
