Decks and Screened Porches, by Archadeck

Deck and Attached Screened Porch with Gable Roof by Archadeck

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’.

Pun intended.

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.

Archadeck of West County and St. Charles County is a leading deck and porch builder serving the Greater St. Louis area.

When Archadeck began in the 1980’s, decks were originally our ‘signature’ product; however, today we specialize in all types of outdoor construction projects including  porches — screened and otherwise.
