Enjoy Beautiful Days on a 3 Season Porch
Although we have digital technology to accommodate many of our needs, some of our most cherished memories relate to enjoying the outdoors in North Carolina. Who doesn’t appreciate the beginning of springtime? We see flowers come into bloom and, in fact, all of nature seems to come alive. Spring is the time of picnics and beautiful gardening. Then comes summer: the season for frolicking in the sun or enjoying a backyard barbeque with family and friends. For those who prefer cooler weather, fall can be the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. Crisp, multi-colored leaves create some of the most beautiful sceneries to behold.
Now imagine enjoying spring, summer, and fall from the comfort of a 3 season porch!
What is a 3 Season Porch?
A 3 season porch is a type of screened porch. Also referred to as a “screened-in porch,” or “sleeping porch.” These covered porches have screened openings rather than windows. A 3 season porch protects you from troublesome bugs as well as rough weather. Having a screened porch means enjoying the best of the outdoors-reliving and creating seasonal memories-without exposure to the rough side of Mother Nature. A 3 season porch, therefore, protects you and your family from the elements. Because screened porches are built under a roof, they also provide shade from the sun on humid summer days in North Carolina.
Features of a 3 Season Porch
Our professionals at Structurally Speaking specialize in designing and creating any home’s custom 3 season porch! We understand that your home is a sanctuary. Therefore, any addition should reflect your family’s style as well as accommodate your daily needs. That’s why our carpenters only strive for the finest craftsmanship when constructing your 3 season porch. In fact, for every project, we choose only the best materials for our clients. We also pay attention to even the smallest design details when undertaking any residential project within our North Carolina territory.
When it comes to design, there are many features available for a 3 season porch. We can unify your porch with the rest of your home by installing design details such as quality flooring and recessed lighting. One of the most important features of a 3 season porch is ceiling fans. Ceiling fans further ensure your comfort during the warmer months of the year. Depending on the size of the porch, our carpenters can install even more luxurious amenities like an outdoor television or fireplace. Of course, we at Structurally Speaking always keep safety in mind. However, a 3 season porch offers flexible installation features because we will not need to excavate the foundation or install a heating system. Also, if you would really enjoy the fall scenery, you may also accommodate a space heater to promote longer use throughout the year. Come to us with big ideas and our designers can let you know what’s possible for your home and your budget. We will work with you every step of the way to create the custom 3 season porch of your dreams!
Benefits of a 3 Season Porch
Your 3 season porch can pay off in more than aesthetic value. Structurally Speaking will design and construct a new porch that increases the monetary value of your home and offers a fun space in which to create new memories. Benefits of installing a 3 season porch include:
Home Value: Screened porches are strong selling points to real estate agents and potential homebuyers. In most instances, money spent on the installation of a screened porch is recovered upon selling the home.
A Comfortable Family Space: Screened porches can be a place to relax or play safely with your kids on rainy days.
More Room for Entertaining: If you like to host guests, a screened porch can be an ideal location. You can make room for billiards, ping pong tables, and more fun group activities.
