For those looking to purchase a home in Fredericksburg VA, screened-in porches are quickly becoming a feature that can't be overlooked. Not only do they provide protection against insects, they also offer shade from the sun and shelter from the rain, while letting inhabitants feel as though they're savoring the natural world outside. Even more appealing is the fact that screened-in porches decrease ground temperatures, saving homeowners from spending an arm and a leg on cooling costs during the hot Virginia summer months. The value a screened in porch can add to the value of your home can be tremendous. 

Screened-in porches also go a long way toward reducing the amount of sunlight that reaches adjacent interior rooms. Additional levels of comfort can easily be incorporated into space by adding recessed lighting, pendant lights, and ceiling fans.

For those getting ready to put their home on the market, adding screens to an existing porch can go a long way toward attracting a larger pool of prospective buyers. In addition to helping your home stand out from the competition, taking the time to add screens to an existing structure will more than likely pay off when the home is sold.

If your property doesn't currently have a screened-in porch - or you recently bought a spot that lacks this alluring amenity - you may want to consider incorporating one into space if you have the room. However, you decide to proceed, keep in mind that adding a porch won't do anything to increase the total square footage of the home.

While there are numerous options to be considered when deciding which materials you'll use to build a porch from the ground up - or add to an existing structure - experts suggest designing the porch in three phases: flooring, exterior materials, and interior trim. Everything from pressure-treated Yellow Southern Pine to vinyl and up-cycled composites can be considered.

Before you get started, it's important to carefully consider the positioning of the door so that it best suits your specific needs. For instance, you can build your screened-in porch with a door that leads directly into the house, or you can position the door to allow for easy entry from a pool or outside dining area. In most instances, aluminum doors are recommended because wood doors tend to warp over time.

You'll also want to consider how you'd like the ceiling to look. Flat ceilings will provide an interior room feel, while vaulted or cathedral ceilings will allow for better ventilation. If you're not up to the task of building a screened-in porch with your own two hands, hiring a professional contractor will take the work out of the process.
