Beyond a pergola, gazebo or pavilion, another terrific way that contractors can add shade for your deck, patio or backyard is with a porch addition.
A custom designed and built porch — front porch, back porch, open porch, screened porch, or screen room — can be a beautiful respite from the heat.
Porch additions are clearly a ‘breath of fresh air’.
Decks and porches provide style and comfort for outdoor living and the covered roof allows for easy installation of ceiling fans and lighting.
With a screened-in porch beside a deck, under a deck (or as a stand-alone structure) the outdoor space provides shelter and protected ventilation. ‘Bugs be gone!’
And for those trivia-buffs out there: ‘Wired Windows’ (aka window screens) became a novel and popular idea in the late 1800’s. Ingenious right?
Hence, decks with porches — with or without ‘wired windows’ — are an altogether awesome home addition for throwing a party or just taking-it-easy.
So if you’re interested, coincidentally (or maybe not so coincidentally) – Archadeck can help.
