New Screened Porches

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

We recently wrapped up construction on two great screen porch projects! For our first porch, the family wanted a low maintenance, fully screened in unit that they could entertain in while enjoying their beautiful backyard. To accomplish this, we began by installing a durable and easy-to-clean tile floor that would hold up well to the elements. Next, we added vaulted wood ceilings to improve the porch’s aesthetic and give it the ambiance of a finished room. A fireplace was also installed to lend the porch character and provide a functional heat source on cool summer nights. The end result was a beautiful space, able to accommodate nearly twenty guests for conversation and entertaining!

Our next porch project involved renovating an existing space. The family’s outdated porch featured an overly damp interior and immobile windows. To upgrade the area we installed price efficient, rolling windows and added a new storm door. Next, we installed a new decking surround and a glass railing, designed to keep the lake view unobstructed as possible. Finally, a fresh coat of paint for both the interior and exterior resulted in a practical space perfect for outdoor use nearly year around!
