Why Does My Porch Need a Screen Enclosure?

The great outdoors offers some much-needed connection to nature as well as a good dose of natural Vitamin D. When sitting out on the porch or gazebo, however, one may overlook the difference a screen enclosure can really make. This type of outdoor extension adds many great benefits that many homeowners enjoy.

Protects From Outdoor Elements

There are numerous elements that interfere with your short time of being outdoors, such as dealing with unwanted insects while you are trying to cook on the grill or simply relaxing. With ascreen enclosure, there is no more need to swat flies away or deal with pollen allergies. The design of the screen enclosure allows each structured pillar or wall to safely and securely cling to the screen without any damage to the surface. Installation is fast and easy and best of all, very affordable.

Provides Shade

How many times have you gone outside and realized you forgot your sunglasses or neglected to put on sunscreen? Maybe more times than you can recall! Adding a screen enclosure to your back patio or outdoor area provides a great amount of shade keeping you cool during those unseasonably warm months while still being able to enjoy the natural light of the sun. Best of all, it is safe to use around kids and your furry friends will enjoy the shade as well.

No-Fuss Concept

Adding another door to divide the space between your backyard and patio would defeat the purpose of a screen enclosure and completely block your view and any entryway to go to and from between spaces. A screen enclosure provides a no-fuss concept with an easy pull and push mechanism to go past the other side. There is also no maintenance required on your end and the screen is weatherproof.

Keeps the Area Dry

When having guests over, a little rain can sometimes change plans rather quickly. Having a screen enclosure helps keep the patio area dry so you won’t have to relocate your guests elsewhere in the house. It also helps keep water from rain and heavy winds from getting access to your outdoor furniture and allowing them to fly away. As always, it is recommended to buy outdoor furniture and rugs that are water-resistant, however, as the screen can only act as a barrier and not actually protect it from the water itself.


Aside from screen enclosures looking nice, they are rather long-lasting. The mesh material is very sturdy and, if installed properly, will get you a good year’s worth of limited warranty.

  1. It’s great to know that a porch screen can help protect your porch from unwanted visitors. My husband and I have a porch that we’d like to redo next Spring. We’re both hoping that we can invest in a screen to help protect it from weather and bugs.

  2. I like to read my books on our patio during afternoons, but recently, I’ve had to deal with numerous insects disrupting my peace and quiet. I’m thankful that you suggested we get a screen enclosure for our patio room since this helps protect us from outdoor elements, such as unwanted insects and pollen allergies. I’ll be sure to consider your suggestion while I look for an installer to call for my screen enclosure soon.
