Now that the weather is getting warmer, homeowners want to spend more time outdoors. But Maryland summers can be hot and uncomfortable, not to mention the bugs. A screened porch is an excellent way to relax outside, even during hot summer days or rainy spring nights. In fact, a screened porch adds more living space and increases your home’s square footage. So, it’s one of the best investments you can make to boost your home’s value. Here are a few reasons why you should consider installing a screened porch.
Keeps Out Bugs and Rain
Screened porches protect homeowners from the unpredictable Maryland weather while still letting them enjoy time in the fresh air. You can enjoy the sounds of rainfall while keeping you and your furniture dry. There’s nothing more annoying than trying to enjoy a delicious meal outside with bugs flying around your face and food. A screened porch will also protect you from insects and other critters ruining your time outside.
Perfect for Entertaining
Another reason to consider installing a screened porch is that it is a perfect place for entertaining guests. You can enjoy having occasional get-togethers or celebrations with a screened porch. Your deck will become the perfect hangout for you and all of your friends. You can add some furniture, a stereo system, or even a television to create the ideal party spot for your guests.
Increases Property Value
Even though they are not usually factored into the overall square footage of a home, screened porches still add significant property value. This is primarily because they add functional living space and are a high-demand feature in the housing market. If you decide to sell your home in the future, a screened porch is a significant asset. Potential buyers can envision their families enjoying the space, and it gives your property an advantage over the competition.
