What is a screened-in porch, and how does it differ from a covered porch?
A screened-in porch is a type of covered porch that is enclosed with screens. The screens provide a barrier against insects and some elements while still allowing you to enjoy fresh air and views of the outdoors. A regular covered porch, on the other hand, is not enclosed, but it provides shade and shelter from the rain. A screen porch is a popular porch addition that many homeowners opt for to enhance their outdoor living space.
What are EZE Breeze porches, and what are their benefits?
EZE Breeze porches feature a unique system of vinyl windows that provide more protection than traditional screens. These windows can be easily opened or closed, allowing you to adjust the level of ventilation depending on the weather. They’re durable, easy to clean, and provide additional protection against rain, wind, and cold.
Types of Porches
A porch addition is a fantastic way to increase the usable space of your home. It serves as a welcoming entrance or backyard outdoor living area where you can relax or entertain guests.
Seasonal Porch Use
Here are a few suggestions:
- Spring: As the temperatures start to rise and the world comes back to life, your porch can be the perfect place to enjoy the fresh air. Consider adding potted plants for a pop of color and a breath of nature.
- Summer: Your covered porch can provide a shaded retreat from the heat. Install a ceiling fan to provide a cool breeze. Opt for outdoor furniture with light-colored, breathable fabrics to keep things comfortable.
- Autumn: Autumn is a beautiful season to spend on the porch. This could be a great time to introduce outdoor heating, like a fire pit or a patio heater, to keep your porch cozy as the weather starts to cool.
- Winter: Even in the colder months, your porch can still be a lovely outdoor retreat. Enclosing the space with Eze-Breeze windows or similar options can create a more temperature-controlled environment. Cozy throws and cushions add warmth, while outdoor string lights can create a festive atmosphere.
