In recent years, the popularity of the “outdoor room” setting has soared. An outdoor room is defined as any outdoor space that can provide a relaxed setting reminiscent of the comforts found within most interior living or family rooms. Covered porches, screened porches, sunrooms, and 3 and 4 season rooms are great examples of sheltered outdoor rooms that extend living spaces and the hours of leisure at home.
What are the benefits of having a comfortable porch or outdoor room and why are they so hot in Central Maryland this season? The pros are endless if you plan well and design your outdoor space to function effortlessly day or night for the way you want to live in outside. For homes in Howard County, Montgomery County and the surrounding areas, outdoor rooms are the perfect solution to enjoy your backyard during rain and inclement weather (of which we have certainly had our fair share of this season), for escaping the humidity and heat and of course nuisance insects of summer, like the mosquito.
Hectic schedules, rushing around for work and looking after our families, make the additional escape provided by an outdoor room very appealing. With so many covered space options, Archadeck of Central Maryland invites you to explore the benefits of each of these wonderful outdoor structures in order to help you gain better knowledge of which space would best suit your family’s backyard needs.
The Covered Porch – Also referred to as “open porches” because they are protected from sun and unpredictable summer rainstorms, the covered porch offers the benefit of circulating fresh air with the bonus of a roof that provides shelter from the elements.
- The Screened Porch – Giving you all the benefits of a covered porch plus one additional big benefit…protection from bugs! Keeping insects such as mosquitoes out of your outdoor living space is a huge benefit of having a screened porch. Keeping the bugs at bay will enable you to enjoy your porch late into the night without worry of being outside at the same time as mosquitoes.
The Three-season room – Beefier than your average screened in porch or enclosed deck, a three season room addition is a good option for homeowners who want to enjoy outdoor living in style but don’t need the living space available all year long. For the windows, we use single-pane glass windows or the Eze-Breeze porch enclosure system (the best of both worlds, screen when you want it, or a more enclosed “windowed” room when you want it too) for unfettered use of the space in spring, summer and fall.
- The Sunroom – Sometimes referred to as four season room, all-season or year round room, this option is integrated into the construction of your home, existing roof line and exterior. For ultimate climate control, we install insulated glass windows and insulation in the roof, floors and walls, for use of the room year-round.
No matter which type of covered structure you choose, an outdoor room will maximize the time that you are able to enjoy the space as well as provide added comfort and protection while outdoors. There is no end to the amount of style, versatility and comfort a new outdoor room by Archadeck of Central Maryland can add to your home.
