When we decided to specialize in building decks back in 1980, it made perfect sense to name our company Archadeck – because we build architected decks.
Here we are more than four decades later, and we’re building as many porches and screened porches as decks!
And no, we’re not going to change our name to Archadeckporch – Archadeck Outdoor Living will do just fine, thank you (wink, wink).
The Benefits Of Adding A Screened Porch To Your NE Indiana Home
If the idea of adding a custom screened porch to your house appeals to you for your next home improvement, we have great news for you.
Even though it’s winter, we’re still designing and building screened porches in Fort Wayne and the 9 surrounding counties, including the Angola and Syracuse Lake areas and golf communities such as Cherry Hill, Sycamore Hills, Autumn Ridge, Glendarin, and Chestnut Hills.
As for the myriad benefits of adding a screened porch, while different types of porches might offer specific benefits according to type, all porches have these benefits in common:
Shade. By definition, a porch has a roof, so it protects you from the sun’s heat and harmful UV rays. No matter how hot it is outdoors, you will be cooler in the shade of a screened porch.
Protection From Rain. It’s safe to plan special gatherings, parties, and other get-togethers on a porch because you don’t need to worry about being rained out. It’s also great to have a porch in addition to a deck or patio. If you plan your activities for the open area, you can always move to the porch in the event of rain or inclement weather.
Enjoy Refreshing Breezes. Nothing provides more relief on a still, warm day or evening than a ceiling fan. We see plenty of days in Northeastern Indiana when it’s too warm to enjoy the outdoors without a breeze. With a screened porch, you have a ceiling. With a ceiling, you can have a ceiling fan for refreshing breezes whenever you want them.
More Time Outdoors. People who have porches enjoy spending more time outdoors. A porch offers you the protection you want while allowing you to be outside, closer to nature, instead of closed off or cooped up indoors.
An Outdoor Room. A covered screened porch is a room that’s outdoors, open and airy. It’s a place where you can set up all the creature comforts you want to enjoy outdoors.
To make it fit your lifestyle, you can install subtle lighting for ambiance or task lighting if you enjoy reading on your porch at night. You can incorporate even more amenities, like a TV and an outdoor kitchen or bar. Once you have a covered screened porch design decided upon, you are only limited by your imagination.
