hat could be better than a relaxing afternoon spent dozing off within your screened-in porch, safe from sun and insects, while summer breezes waft across you.
Covered porches, a common feature in homes of yesteryear, dropped out of favor during the 1980s and ’90s. But today they’re experiencing a revival. Once again, homeowners want to dine alfresco or curl up with a good book without the worries of too much sun exposure, mosquitoes or weather.
Before adding a porch to your home or screening-in an existing porch, remember that curb appeal is a key factor to your home’s value. Take into account how it’s going to change the look of your home and make sure it blends in with your home’s exterior.
As the project often requires building an addition, the National Association of Home Builders recommends consulting an experienced renovator like Sumpter Construction to help with the design.
