Is a Screened Porch Worth It?

Is a screened porch worth it for your house? Here’s how you can know!

A screened porch is an enclosed room with wrap-around windows and little to no electricity. Some might have a ceiling fan or even a mini-split air conditioner, but some might not have either. Lighting is also optional. Even so, it is a room full of sunlight in which one can enjoy the outdoors without the rain, hot sun, or bugs. Is a screened porch worth it for you? Consider these factors below. 

Your Maryland Climate

If you live in Maryland, there is a whole range of possible climates you might experience. From the coastal plains to the Appalachian Mountains, Maryland has quite a diversity of settings. On the other hand, the Mid-Atlantic typically experiences four seasons and plenty of warm, sunny weather. Our region is no stranger to the screened-in porch.

Your Lifestyle

If you prefer the indoors to the outdoors at all costs, then a screened-in porch is not for you. However, if you like sunshine and would love a separate space to enjoy a hobby, relaxation, or entertaining, then it could be the extra space you need to fulfill your lifestyle. 

Your Space

The question is, does your house have space to fit a screened-in porch comfortably? Possible spaces include on a deck or patio, on the side of the house, or between the house and a detached garage. You could also build a freestanding screened-in porch, which could be considered a screened-in pagoda

The Possibilities

There are many possibilities for a screened-in porch. A screened porch is worth it if you can see yourself enjoying a sanctuary, entertaining al fresco, gardening, painting, or letting the kids use it as a playroom. 

You can also find various design possibilities to make it as decked out or as simple as you like. Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence can work with you and show you the various products offered, such as PGT windows and vinyl glazing on sturdy, lightweight aluminum framing. A screened porch is worth it if you have the lifestyle and space set for it.
