Are you entertaining the idea of adding an outdoor space to your home this year?

A screened porch or a covered porch is a solid choice and money well-spent, offering sheltering spaces plus good-old-fashioned charm.

Porches are utterly contagious — once you’ve had one, you’ll never (ever!) want to go back to not having one.

St. Louis homeowners who’ve added some type of porch, consistently tell us ‘We live on the porch — spring, summer and fall!”

They are simply the ‘fun and favorite’ outdoor living space for much of the year – throwing a party, family meals, watching rainstorms, even make-shift ‘camping’ for the kid’s sleepovers.

During winter in St. Louis, porches are a useful space for stashing snow boots, muddy sports clothes or cleats, and firewood.

Porches offer privacy, weather protection, temperature control and relief from the sun.

For ideal outdoor living, pair an open porch or a screened porch with a deck for the best of both worlds and you’ll have it ‘made in the shade’ with a really nice structure.
