Choose The Type Of Porch That You Want

Open Porches


An open porch is defined by its lack of walls. They’re a great way to enjoy the outdoors without being fully exposed to the scorching heat of the summer. The air can circulate freely, making them the perfect place to enjoy summer evenings. However, as we all know, open porches can get a bit too chilly at night or in the winter. They also let the bugs in!

We are experienced backyard and front porch builders, so no matter where your porch is located in your home, we’ll give it a beautiful design.

Screened Porches

Screened Porches

If you’re looking for maximum comfort, our screened porch installation pros can help you out. Screened-in porches let in natural light and fresh air while keeping bugs out. You can control the temperature and adjust the airflow with outdoor curtains and a ceiling fan.

Screened porches are easy to keep clean and protect your furniture from the elements and debris that can damage it. In this cozy and protected space, you can enjoy the outdoors without worrying about any disturbances to your peace and quiet. 

In the summer, screened-in porches keep the sun out while still allowing a mild breeze to come through. They still get cool in the winter, but you can have an outdoor heater to spend more time outdoors. Whatever your needs may be, our screen porch builders are ready to help you.

A well-designed and built porch can boost your home’s curb appeal and add value to your property. Porches made with man-made materials are low maintenance and highly durable, making them a smarter long-term investment than wooden porches. If you decide to sell your property, potential buyers may see more value if you have a durable porch that won’t deteriorate quickly.

The time frame for building a porch varies depending on the size and complexity of the design. Our experienced porch builders can typically have your new porch ready in 1-2 months. 

The cost of building a porch varies depending on the materials used, the size of the project, and other factors. If you hire us to do the job, you can expect to spend somewhere between $35,000-$55,000 for a 12×12 porch with a deck. 

Open porches are cheaper to build than their enclosed counterparts because they require fewer materials and labor. If you’re looking to save on costs, an open porch might be the most cost-effective option.

If you’re unsure about which one to choose, think about what you’ll be using the space for. A screened porch feels more like being outside, whereas a sunroom feels more like an extension of your home’s interior. 

Screened porches tend to stay cooler because the screens allow for more air circulation, while sunrooms tend to be warmer because they’re fully enclosed. However, some sunrooms let you control airflow by having retractable windows or sliding panels.

During the winter, it is hard to keep a screened porch warm. You can use an outdoor heater, but be prepared for less than warm nights during winter.

Sunrooms offer a more enclosed and protected space, but they can still get chilly in the winter. You will need some sort of heating system to keep your sunroom warm all 4 seasons.
