Seasonal weather in Maryland can be absolutely beautiful. Mild weather makes for perfect evenings to spend time outside as a family, but along with lower evening temperatures come evening pests. Mosquitos in the evening and flies during the day can take away from your quality time outside. Enclosing your outdoor space is a great way to protect yourself from pests while also increasing your home’s value. Let’s look at some great options for enclosing this area for optimal home enjoyment:
Screening in a deck or porch is a popular option because it allows you to enjoy the outdoors while being protected from pests, pollen, and the elements. There are many options available for screening, including UV-blocking screen and even heat-blocking screen to help make your outdoor space more comfortable in the heat of summer. Using a Maryland decking company that specializes in enclosures is important because it is not as simple as putting a screen around the walls of your porch. A screen can also be installed underneath the base of your deck to prevent bugs entering from below and ensure a tight seal around all edges.
If you are hoping to utilize your outdoor space year-round, closing in your porch using glass windows can be a great option. You can turn your porch into a sunroom and make it an extension of your home. By installing windows that open to the outside, you can make this a truly versatile space. This room can be heated and cooled when needed using a space heater or portable air conditioning unit, or opened up to the elements and fresh air on more temperate days. A sunroom is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while staying protected from unfavorable weather and pests. Glass enclosures not only add to your enjoyment of the home, but add to the available living space in your home, helping to increase its resale value.
