What are those ways that allow you to use your deck more during our cooler seasons you ask? Your thinking that it is getting colder out and you don’t like to sit in the chill of our fall evenings or on rainy days.
You don’t have to. There are two main ways throughout the seasons here in North Carolina that you can obtain more enjoyment and use of your deck or patio.
Put a Roof Over It and Screen It In
Screened porches create an extension to your home and a special backyard gathering place for family and friends. They provide an inviting space to relax in nature while being sheltered from unwanted elements like insects and inclement weather.
The screening itself comes in dark colors for more privacy or all the way to almost transparent where you barely know it is there. Which to choose all depends on what type of view you want!
One of the best things about screened porches is the feeling that you are outdoors. Skylights enhance that feeling through increased visibility, viewing the stars, and natural lighting. Installed ceiling fans in the summer help to keep you cool while enjoying your screened patio or deck, and adding energy-efficient ambiance and functionality.
Put a Roof Over it and Enclose it with Windows and Screens
A sunroom is enclosed with windows and screens so when it is nice outside you can appreciate the fresh breeze. And we’re talking windows, windows, a skylight, and more windows. And with all this, sunrooms keep all the unwanted elements of nature out.
The sun can be your best furnace during the cooler months. With a sunroom, the sun streams in warming not only the sunroom but the connecting interior of your home. Add a skylight to your sunroom and enjoy the bright, comfortable addition to your home.
Your sunroom can be used for your morning cup of coffee or a comfortable reading spot curled up with a blanket. Have pets? They will love the light, views and fresh air, as well. The options are limitless!
A sunroom is a fabulous alternative to a conventional, full-sized addition. A beautiful sunroom can increase the value of your home, allow for year-round gathering opportunities here in North Carolina with the sun heating the interior, and add square footage to your home all while providing a wonderful place to entertain or just relax.
And with the help of a space heater, electric fireplace, or another type of heating source, a three-season room can be used periodically even in cold weather.
