Screened-In Porch Builder in Raleigh, Durham, and the Greater Triangle
We Design It, Then We Built It
Screened-in porches are a southern tradition that allow us to enjoy the best of outdoor living in a comfortable, more protected space. At Archadeck of Raleigh-Durham and the Greater Triangle, we have been designing and building custom decks and porches for more than thirty years. We work closely with our clients to design screened porches that balance functional needs, design aesthetics, and budgetary parameters. Our expert craftsmen build screened-in porches with the utmost quality and care, often exceeding local building requirements.
Screened porches go by many names – screened-in porches, screen porches, screened porches – but their purpose is the same, no matter what we call them. Popular throughout Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, screened porches offer many benefits such as shade, rain protection, and a barrier against pesky insects. Whether it’s a cooler place to enjoy fresh barbeque on a hot summer day or a quiet place to read on a crisp fall afternoon, screened-in porches allow homeowners to enjoy outdoor living for a good part of the year.

Converting a Deck or Patio into a Screened Porch
Screened porches are often designed and built as entirely new structures. However, they can also be created by renovating an existing structure. Sometimes homeowners may realize that their current deck or patio isn’t really useful or comfortable for regular use. Maybe a south-facing backyard is too hot in the summer or a wooded backyard ends up being a mosquito haven. Not to worry! Many decks and patios are good candidates to be upgraded into screened-in porches. Learn more by reading: Can My Deck Be Converted to a Screened-In Porch?

Today’s custom screened porches are much more than a deck with screening stapled onto a frame. Your Archadeck designer can help you answer the many different questions that arise during the design phase. What size of structure will best meet your needs?
