If you have always wanted a space where you can enjoy more fresh air and visibility, but you want to avoid things like insects and bad weather, a screen room can be a valuable addition to your existing home. A screen room allows you to enjoy the outdoors without a single bug bite or the risk of sunburn. It is truly the best of both the indoor and outdoor worlds!
When you are planning a new screen room for your home, there are a lot of things to think about. That is why it is a good idea to consult with a professional before you even start the planning process. There may be permits required or zoning considerations in your area that you don’t know anything about. You will also need advice about how large your openings can be and where you need to place the structural posts that will provide your new screen room with strength and durability.
Here are some other things to consider when planning a screen room for your home:
- Where will the doors be? Make sure you maintain a good entrance and exit flow for your home. You may also want to consider investing in aluminum doors that seal better than wooden ones and will not sag.
- What type of screen material will you use? A gray or charcoal tinted screen will reduce glare.
- What type of lighting will you use? Do you want a ceiling fan? What other electrical needs will you have (i.e. a TV connection or outlets)?
- What type of roof and ceiling do you want?
Adding a screen room to your home can be a great investment, not only for the value of your home, but also for the amount of enjoyment you get out of living in your home. Contact us today at Eden Construction to get the process started!
