If you are considering adding a covered deck or porch to your Kansas City area home but find yourself undecided on the specific style of porch that might better suit your lifestyle, we can offer insight. What are some benefits of adding an open porch or covered deck versus a scree porch? In terms of style, some people prefer the simple charm of an open, covered porch over a screened-in porch.

When function is a consideration, open porches allow for a better view from within and have a more open-air feel than a screened porch. An open porch is also easier to navigate if you often use it to get to your backyard, so ease of access is also a functional consideration. The functional ease of an open porch or covered deck does not mean that you lose usability inside your porch. To the contrary, Archadeck of Kansas City often builds custom covered porches to include the same amenities you would find in screen porches. For instance, your covered deck could include an outdoor fireplace, a finished ceiling, full electrical installation for lighting, fans, and more. Porches and decks are also versatile combination spaces, as you see in the photo below. They can host dual-purpose living areas, or be appointed an exclusive function, such as an outdoor TV room. You might find it enjoyable to host a movie night by your fireplace on crisp evenings.

Thinking of building a porch atop your existing deck? That likely isn’t possible. Read more.

Transforming your existing open deck into a covered porch would be ideal if your deck was built to support such an addition. Unfortunately, almost all decks are not designed nor built to support the weight of a porch roof. Outside of not being able to support the weight of a roof, other obstacles include whether your deck is already the correct size and shape that you would like for your porch to be and whether it is attached to your home, where it is most convenient and usable. Perhaps your deck is outside your breakfast nook, but you would rather have your covered porch as an extension of your family room. When investing in an outdoor living space, it’s important to consider where you will get optimum use. If your open porch is not in an area, you deem easily accessible, or sensibly placed, you are less likely to spend time there.

What are some other benefits for an open porch or covered deck in the Kansas City area?

When it comes to enjoying time outdoors, a covered deck is a great option for many reasons. You might find that an open porch enhances the overall experience of being outdoors, in that it is a true open-air living space, as opposed to being enclosed with screens. The second benefit is that even though the porch is open, you will still have some sun and rain protection on your covered porch. If your family already gets ample use of your backyard, having an open porch is an obvious solution, as there are little or no boundaries between your porch and yard. This might be especially useful for families with pets. Open porches can add value to the way we use our existing outdoor amenities, such as play yards or grilling areas. As your Kansas City open porch builder, Archadeck of Kansas City can help you plan and build a porch to best suit your lifestyle.
