According to real estate experts, a screened-in patio is one of the best projects to add value to your home. Screen rooms are ideal places to relax, unwind, and entertain family and friends. Even your pets will benefit from a screen room, allowing them to have fresh air and sunlight while still being in a protected area. If you have a patio or deck that you aren’t using very often, it’s time to consider the benefits of a screen room.
Tops Benefits of Adding a Screen Room
1. Additional Living Space
A screen room is similar to having an additional room in your home, but you’ll pay a lot less to install it. You can use a screen room as an outdoor dining area, play area for the kids, yoga retreat, office space, or any other purpose you want. Ceiling fans, radiant heaters, lighting, entertainment systems, and outdoor kitchens are just a few options that allow you to customize a screen room for your needs.
2. Protection From Insects
If you want to spend more time outdoors, but annoying insects such as flies, mosquitoes, and gnats often make that time much less enjoyable, a screen room is a great solution. A screened-in room will eliminate the need to use insect repellents to keep the pests away.
3. Increased Outdoor Privacy
With homes often located close to one another, privacy is at a premium. A screen room lets you enjoy your yard while providing privacy from neighbors. If you don’t want your neighbors watching you as you lounge on your patio during the day, a dark or opaque screen makes it difficult for others to see you. Screens filter the view in, while your view outward remains clear.
4. Protection From UV Rays and High Temperatures
Screen rooms help protect your skin from damaging UV rays and significantly reduce your patio’s temperature. A screen room will also protect your patio furniture, grills, and other fixtures from the elements, reducing fading and wear and tear, helping them last longer.
5. Return on Investment
A comfortable outdoor space is an attractive asset when you decide to sell. Comfortable outdoor living areas are a top priority for both homeowners and potential homebuyers. Installing the right type of screen room can add curb appeal and give your property a significant advantage over other homes on the market.
6. Customizable to Suit Your Needs
When you have experts customize your new room to your specific needs and desires, you will have a one-of-a-kind addition that will enhance your home. Screen enclosures can be designed to fit under your deck, onto your porch, or constructed from the ground up. You can choose from many design and color options to ensure that your screen room complements your home’s architectural style and increases its value.
7. Low Maintenance
Professionals design and install rooms using high-quality materials with low maintenance in mind. Durable materials mean you can spend more time enjoying your family and guests and less time cleaning your porch or deck area.
8. Perfect for Pets
A screen room allows your furry companions to lounge outdoors in comfort, protected from rain and excessive sunshine. A screened porch or deck can also serve as a transitional space that keeps pet hair and muddy paws away from your indoor furnishings while allowing your pets to enjoy the fresh air.
9. Spend More Time Outdoors Year Round
Mild spring and fall temperatures mean that a screen room can be used most of the year in the Midwest. With the addition of ceiling fans, fireplaces, and outdoor heaters, a screen room can be surprisingly comfortable throughout the changing seasons.
