Unique Home Building knows what makes a good home. A screened porch that’s attached to your home can be turn into the perfect spot for you and your family to enjoy on lazy summer days or in the crisp fall mornings. With a roof over the porch, you won’t have any worries about overexposure to the sun, wind or other elements. At the same time, being surrounded by screens, allows fresh air into the porch and home without letting in all the bugs.

Here are the Benefits of Screened in Porches: 

Enjoy the Seasons
With screened panels, your porch will only stay as comfortable as the temperatures outdoors. You can increase the time you’re able to use your porch if you construct additional panels for use in place of the screens during cooler weather. With plexiglass panels, suddenly your summer porch becomes a three-season porch that stays comfortable during the cooler spring and autumn months.

Add Style to Your Home

Depending on the style of your home, you’ve likely got plenty of options for designing and building your screened-in porch. Generally, the way it works, is that screened porches are built with wood framing that supports the screen panels. You have the option of keeping it simple or making it more formal, stained and finished. It’s great for the resale value as well.


With a screened porch built onto your home, you suddenly have new opportunities for entertaining without worrying about the extra bugs or unpredictable weather. With enough space on the porch, you can add normal outdoor furniture like lounge chairs, hammock’s, wicker chairs, a casual dining table, and even a coordinating sideboard for dining pleasure. Want more elegance? Add an informal chandelier over the dining table and perhaps a ceiling fan over the seating area for added comfort and illumination! As a bonus, add a grill just outside the porch door and you’ll have a convenient bbq and cooking spot.

The extra room will give your a more spacious living environment during the summer months when you just want to stretch out and relax. You might use the screened porch for hobbies, dining, visiting and just hanging out with a cup of coffee and a good book. The natural setting and sounds that surround you when using the porch can be relaxing and rejuvenating.

With consideration of these basic benefits of a screened-in porch, you may wonder why you haven’t constructed a porch before. The opportunities for enjoyment of your new porch should make all the work and effort worth it. Contact Unique Home Building, and get plans for your porches started today!
