Every day, nature has a breathtaking display in the space just beyond the openings of our windows and doors. As the sun rises and sets, the world comes alive. Birds twitter; crickets chirp; gentle breezes flow and bees buzz by. Wait, what? Buzzing bees? If similar alarms resound in your thoughts when imagining nature surrounding you, it’s time to consider 3 season porch installation. Then, you can revisit peaceful thoughts with a bit of a barrier between you and ALL of nature’s glory. Better yet, Structurally Speaking can help!
Advantages of a 3 Season Porch
First, it helps to understand: what is a 3 season porch? Basically, it’s similar to a screened porch. It has flooring, a roof for shade and screens on the sides to keep out critters. However, it also has windows to close over existing screens when you wish. Therefore, you can immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of nature without it crawling on you.
Plus, weather woes are no longer an issue either. Fortunately, the climate in the Triangle area is relatively mild. To keep a 3 season porch cool, place an AC unit in one of the existing windows or recesses. Or, opt for a ceiling fan. Conversely, space heaters toast your toes in cooler months.
Either way, you’ll benefit from the fun opportunities your new space provides. For instance, hang out with your family on rainy days. They can play safely while you relax. Perhaps, you’re a fan of game nights. Relish the outdoor sounds of the evening while delighting in a little friendly competition. Likewise, take advantage of extra space that creates more room for entertaining. Enjoy group activities with your friends and family. After all, 3 season porches are perfect for billiards, ping pong, foosball and the like.
Plus, screened porches are strong selling points to real estate agents and potential home buyers. In most cases, you recoup your investment upon selling your home. Ultimately, it’s a wise investment that helps you in the present and the future!
The Structurally Speaking Process
To further enjoy the advantages of a screened porch, you need to approach the process strategically. Foremost, it’s imperative to partner with a contractor who works with your existing space to create a flowing addition. At Structurally Speaking, we tend to follow the famous principle of legendary architect, Louis Sullivan. Form follows function. Essentially, this directive is what sets us apart from local competition. Not only do we wish to create your dream space, we strive to match your home’s natural, pre-existing beauty.
Furthermore, we work to exceed your expectations from start to finish. Our steps include:
1. Initial Consultation. We began with a free and detailed consultation with all of our clients. During this time, we focus on finding specific functional and aesthetic goals you wish to meet.
2. Design Presentation. After our free, no-obligation consultation, we provide an in-depth presentation that includes at least 2 design options. Next, we determine which you like the most and make recommendations based on your viewpoints.
3. Project Construction. Our owner, Jim Brennan, takes a very personal, hands-on approach to this imperative stage. Consequently, he oversees every home improvement project we complete. Moreover, he also provides assistance to clients dealing with homeowner’s associations. Needless to say, we also acquire all necessary permits to complete your new porch.
