Screened porches have been a way of life for many homeowners living in Alexandria, VA. Anytime you live in a hot and humid area, unfortunately along with it comes a lot of bugs. Summertime can be an extremely buggy time of year. What better way to eliminate those pesky critters than to invest in screened porches like other folks who live in Alexandria, VA.
Screened Porches can offer many advantages including:
• Outside fresh air with a bug-free environment.
• Extended area of your home providing an area to play, eat, relax and entertain.
• Year-round grilling.
• Shelter from the sun, rain and snow.
Screened porches can be designed from your existing deck in Alexandria, VA or you might be interested in building one from scratch. If you are building a screened porch from scratch, it is a good idea to visualize what type of furniture you will need for entertainment. A table and chairs for dining and possibly additional seating with side tables as well should be incorporated into your plans.
You can add overhead lighting so you can enjoy your screened porch during the late evenings for entertaining, dining or relaxing reading a good book. An added fireplace gives you warmth for those colder nights and gives your porch a cozy and inviting feeling for your family and guests when entertaining.
During those rainy and snowy months, a screened porch also provides a place for those muddy shoes and boots to keep from tracking inside the house, and it is also a perfect place to store your wood to keep it dry if you have an inside fireplace or woodstove.
If you are an avid griller, nothing can stop you now. Screened porches give you the opportunity to grill year round without worrying rather it is raining or snowing; you won’t be limited to just dry, warm weather for your desire to grill.
