At Archadeck of Fort Wayne, we know a thing or two about great outdoor living design. If you ask us, a screened porch is one of the best investments you can make in your home, because they allow for quality outdoor living like no other.
What’s so great about screened porches? Well…everything, actually! Adding a screened porch is a fantastic way to offer your family more livable square footage. A screened porch is super versatile and can be used as an additional TV room, private reading nook, play space, outdoor dining room, or just about any use you can imagine. They are stylish and functional beyond your imagination!
Having a screened porch means that your family can keep outdoor plans, even during inclement weather. One of the best things about screened porches is they will allow you to remain outdoors when rain would have otherwise canceled your plans. Fresh air awaits almost any time!
Chuck the bug spray and citronella candles! On a screened porch, your family will remain protected from mosquitoes and the diseases they carry! If you are averse to insects and outdoor pests in general, building a screened porch is the best way for you to enjoy your time outdoors during the spring and summer months, when critters and crawlers are running rampant.
Bring your favorite indoor activities out into your screened porch! Under roof and protected by screens, these spaces allow for fabulous finishes. You can have a standard wood or composite porch floor, or introduce an indoor material, such as ceramic tile. Outdoor area rugs and beautiful furnishings will make your screened porch feel as comfortable as your beloved indoor hangouts. Add electrical to your finished ceiling for recessed lighting, a ceiling fan, and even surround sound. An outdoor fireplace will create a custom aesthetic, add warmth when needed, and provide a perfect space to hang a television.

Outdoor living spaces are not mutually exclusive. Screened porches are even better accompanied by a custom deck or patio for complementary open-air outdoor living!
Your entire family will be able to enjoy the benefits of a safe, protected outdoor living space! Your kids will love having a rainy day outdoor play space. You will relish a private place of respite and a space to host friends in comfort and style. Your pet will appreciate the benefits of lazing in fresh air and sunshine – and you will appreciate the safety of an enclosed space for them to be outdoors, unwatched. With all these benefits and more, there is really no reason not to have a screened porch! What are you waiting for?
