Enclosing a deck is a cost-effective way to transform your outdoor living space and make your time outside more comfortable and enjoyable. Keeter Roofing & Remodeling specializes in custom screened in deck and porch construction in the Wichita, Kansas, area. We specialize in full custom builds, so we can create a solution that fits your lifestyle. Of course, screens block insects, but there are several reasons homeowners choose to enclose a deck.
Benefits of A Screened in Porch or Deck
A new custom screened in deck is a great way to add usable space for entertaining and relaxing without the expense and hassle of a room addition. There’s no insulation, plumbing or HVAC work required, and there’s no need to pour a full foundation.
If your home has an existing deck that’s in good condition, adding features like a roof, screens, outdoor speakers and lighting is an affordable option that allows for a lot of customization.
Imagine spending summer evenings outside without the hassle of bug spray, smelly candles and other attempts to keep mosquitoes and other pests away. Or, picture relaxing on your covered deck during a rainstorm, enjoying music from your outdoor speakers. A covered and screened in porch or deck can provide shade and filter sunlight, and features such as ceiling fans, lighting and other electronics can add to your enjoyment of the space.
If your deck is connected to an upper story, above the level of a privacy fence, privacy can be a concern. Enclosing the deck with a screen will allow you to see out into your back yard while making it more difficult for neighbors to see in.
Protect Outdoor Furniture
A covered deck helps block rain and snow, while screening in the deck will keep birds, bugs and wild animals away from your patio furniture. It will also reduce fading due to the sun.
Appeal to Buyers
Here in south central Kansas, home buyers often value outdoor living spaces. If you’re thinking of selling your home in the next few years, adding buyer appeal with a screened in and covered deck may be a good investment.
Screened in Deck Construction
We offer a variety of construction options to fit your home’s aesthetic and your budget. From screening in an existing covered or uncovered deck to building a completely new custom structure, we’ll help you select the best option for your lifestyle.
Choose from a variety of screen material, including aluminum, fiberglass, vinyl-coated polyester and long-lasting alloy screens.
Your fully custom-built screened in deck or porch can include a wide range of features to help you create the atmosphere you want with the convenience you need. Select options such as floor to ceiling screens, sliding screens, sliding windows, awnings, sunshades, automatic openers and remotes, lighting, built-in speakers or other electronics and much more.
Due to our current workload, we’re only taking on projects with pre-built decks and roof overhangs. We can screen in existing structures to give you the perfect patio experience.
