Why a screened in porch is a great addition to your home

So you’re thinking about adding a screened-in porch to your home? We don’t blame you! It’s a great addition to any home. Screened in porches allow you to have some flexibility when it comes to mother nature and other factors. You don’t have to wait for the sun to shine to enjoy the outdoors. 


One of the annoyances with being outdoors can be the bugs, and Wisconsin gets a lot of them! A screened-in porch has the added bonus of being able to enjoy outside without worrying about the bugs that come out at night. You want to make sure the screen you have is small enough so bugs can’t fit through.

Added Value

Not only can a screened-in porch help you avoid the weather and bugs, but it can also add value to your home. On average, a screened-in porch can give you up to an 80% return on your investment. Prospective buyers will like the added bonus as well.


As we know, Wisconsin’s weather can take a turn. Having a screened-in porch can allow you to still enjoy the outdoors while it’s raining outside. Even during the colder months, many people include heaters or fireplaces within their screened-in porch so they can enjoy it all year long. 

No matter the season, you can always enjoy your backyard. Any decision about your home can be tough, so give us a call at (608) 838-2500 to help you and answer any questions you may have.
