Location, location, location
Choosing your Salt Lake screened porch’s location takes a great deal of consideration. At Archadeck, it is our goal to help make sure you think of everything to make the best choice possible. From what part of your home do you want to access the porch from? Where in your yard are the best views? Are you in desperate need of a private retreat off the master bedroom? Does it make sense to screen in an existing porch or build over an existing deck or patio? Whatever the case may be, we can make it happen for you.
Screened Porch Roof Types
Your choices in porch roof types are gable, open gable, hip, shed or flat roof. While the look is going to be your first consideration, there are some restrictions dependent upon the placement of your screened porch and your home’s architectural design. For instance, a gable roof lets in a great deal of natural light and can match your home’s roof pitch. But if your porch is under 2nd story windows, a shed roof might be the necessary choice to get the most ceiling height without obstructing those windows.
Screened Porch Design Options
There is a vast variety of design finishes for screened porches. Choosing the initial shape and size is just the beginning. From floor to ceiling screens to knee walls, your porch can be as open or contained as you wish. If your porch is elevated you’ll need to choose railings: wood, vinyl, aluminum in many color options. You may even choose to add vinyl porch windows like Eze-Breeze to extend the usefulness of your porch to cooler or wetter days. Your interior design really centers on your ceiling. With exposed beams, custom trim, bead board or drywall, your screened porch ceiling can make the space elegant, rustic or any other look you are going for.
Screened Porch Amenities
Screened porches offer a great place to install amenities for easy outdoor living. You can have your porch wired with electricity for installing ceiling fans, recessed lighting and other comfort features. If you’re planning to do a great deal of entertaining, you may opt for a wet bar, outdoor kitchen or a mounted television. And if you aren’t about to let cooler days chase you indoors, an outdoor fireplace may be just the thing for your Salt Lake screened porch.
