Screened Porch over Patio by Archadeck, St. Louis Mo

Natural Wood Screened Porch on Patio with Shed Roof by Archadeck, St. Louis

With a smaller level yard, these St. Louis homeowners decided that a screened-in outdoor room over a patio was the winning combination for a home addition.

The screened porch is a perfect place for morning coffee or to curl up with a good book; a place to relax and enjoy nature’s beauty… just outside their home.  And the remaining patio space is ideal for enjoying the sunshine.

Screen rooms and screened porches make great additions to any home because you can enjoy them throughout the changing seasons.

St. Louis is often called, ‘the land of the four seasons’ because our weather patterns are defined with a distinct spring, summer, fall and winter.  Often times, though, St. Louis weather is surprising because we may have fall-like weather in the middle of winter and folks find themselves using their outdoor spaces, nearly year-round.

When having a screened porch or screen room designed, it’s important for you and your contractor to identify exactly how the space will be used.  Functionality will determine its size, traffic flow patterns, home and yard access — which in turn determines doorways, stairs, lighting, interior finish, ceiling, roofing, and amenities such as electrical access.

At Archadeck, we aim to design and build outdoor rooms and spaces that match our customers’ budget and needs.

Thus, the existing home and backyard layout are major parts of that design, for both aesthetics (color, style, textures) and technical considerations to ensure the construction and structural designs are a good fit.
