If you live in the Baltimore, Maryland area, spring, summer, and fall can be very warm! It’s a great time for families to enjoy the outdoors and share meals and memories together. However, one of the most frustrating things about eating outside are the bugs! Bugs love the smell of food—especially sweeter foods like fruit and soda! Don’t get frustrated while trying to enjoy a meal outdoors—invest in a screened in porch.
Benefits of a Screened In Porch
Aside from protecting you from the bugs, there are several other benefits of a screened in deck:
- Longer lasting porch – throughout the year, snow, leaves, rain, and more can build up on your porch, which can shorten the life of your deck. When you have an enclosed deck, you can count on less debris laying on your deck which lengthens the life of your porch. It also means less maintenance and upkeep for you!
- More relaxing – there is just something about a screened in porch that allows us to relax more. If you enjoy reading or napping, an enclosed porch can allow you to feel more secluded and provides you with a more relaxing experience.
- More time spent outdoors – let’s face it, the rain can ruin many plans, especially those that were planned outdoors! When you have an enclosed deck, the weather doesn’t have to stop you from doing the things you enjoy. If you are planning a family picnic or family game night, you can still enjoy the outdoors—and sound of the rain—all on your deck!
