Here at Glenn Gate Construction, one of the projects we specialize in is building screened porches. Our goal is to help you make your home the best it can be and adding a screened porch can improve your home in a number of useful ways. In this article, we’ll go over three reasons to add a screened porch to your home to help you decide if you want to take that step.

 screened porch is a great place to do that

  • Expand Your Living Space. One popular reason to add a screened porch to your property is that doing so is a great way to expand your living space. At Glenn Gate Construction, we hear many homeowners tell us they wish they had more space to relax, and just as many who say they’d like to spend more time enjoying the fresh air. Building a screened porch is a great way to accomplish both goals.
  • Increase Curb Appeal. Even if you’re not completely invested in adding more living space, you may still want to consider adding a screened porch as a way to increase curb appeal. Screened porches are an iconic part of South Carolina architecture, and adding one to your home will make it more attractive to buyers should you ever decide to sell it.
  • Enjoy the Outdoors in Privacy. Related to our first point, the third reason we at Glenn Gate Construction encourage you to add a screened porch to your home is that they are a great way to enjoy the beauties of nature within the privacy of your own space. Whether you want a secluded place to practice yoga or just want to be able to enjoy the morning air in your pajamas, a screened porch is a great place to do that.
