Porches have been a mark of American architecture and culture for the past few centuries, but screened porches have become the new feature to have in your home! And why are screened porches trending, you might ask? Below are a couple of reasons.
1. Enjoy the view without the bugs
There is nothing more pleasant and southern than passing an evening on your porch. Especially with the beautiful fall weather that’s just around the corner! You can take in some fresh air and enjoy the view. However, the bugs can turn what would be a perfect post-dinner pastime into an annoying battle with the bugs that ends with you giving up and going inside with 12 vexatious new mosquito bites!
A screened in porch allows you to enjoy the view without the bugs! And now with retractable screen, you can have it both ways. Retract the screen during seasons when the bugs aren’t as bad and bring them back out when the bugs are driving you crazy! It’s a win-win to keep you happy all year round!
2. Additional security
Crimsafe makes a screened porch with stranded wire and stainless steel that is impossible to break into. This gives you the security of knowing that your porch furniture, outdoor t.v, etc. are secure and you can even fall asleep on let your little girls have a slumber party under the stars without worrying about their safety.
