At Speaks Custom Window & Sunrooms, one of the most popular home additions that we help with is screen enclosures. If you are looking to screen in your patio, pool, or anything else, our experts are here to provide the assistance you need. In this article, we’ll go over a few tips on how to design great screen enclosures so that you can make yours the best it can be.
- Choose Your Location- If your enclosure is intended to go around a preexisting structure, then this factor is already decided for you. However, if you are adding a new screened porch or similar enclosure, then we recommend choosing the location for it carefully. Consider things like sun exposure, proximity to existing rooms, and even the prevailing wind direction in order to make your enclosure the best it can be.
- Consider Function- Another key for designing great screen enclosures is to consider how you will be using them. For instance, do you just want a place to sit and hang out, or would you like to include a full dining set-up as well? In addition, consider how the enclosure will affect the rest of your home–for instance, a long, narrow enclosure will let more light into your home than a broad, square one.
- Select Your Materials- A third key to great enclosure design is to use the best materials. This part can be trickier for those who don’t have experience with enclosure construction, but fortunately our team is here to provide the expert advice and recommendations you need.
