Screened in decks offer a ‘halfway house’ — a transition room — linking your home’s indoor living space to its outdoor living space with ease, comfort and style.

Other benefits of a screened in deck include:

  • increased privacy
  • protection from rain and sun
  • bug buffer
  • and a delightful, sheltered nook that can be used much of the year

Regarding design, a reliable and reputable contractor will plan a customized screen deck based largely on a specific home’s existing layout and the size of the backyard.

Generally speaking however, there are two different options for screened decks.

The first way, most appropriate for a large and wide backyard, is to screen in a portion of the deck, itself.

The second way, most appropriate for smaller yards or sloping lots, is to screen in an area underneath the deck.

The custom design details for this type of outdoor screened structure and the materials used for building, bring endless possibilities for the space.

A few examples include:  woods or hardwoods; composite, capstock or vinyl; open or solid railing; decorative baluster options; accessories such as lighting, electrical access, ceiling fans, outdoor furniture and more.
