In the south there’s nothing better than sitting outside sipping sweet tea, while watching the herons land in the marsh. Late afternoon thunderstorms can make this impossible during six months of the year—which is why many consider purchasing a screened-in porch. Whether your view consists of mountains, marshland, the ocean or open space, and regardless of the weather – and insects - you can enjoy life from a screen room, even when conditions outside are less than perfect.
Screened-in porches offer great entertaining and relaxing space without the cost of an actual addition; better yet, this article from Remodeling Magazine shares the return on investment for an outdoor deck runs around 80%-120%!
How Much Will It Cost?
Providing an exact cost for a screen room without an actual consultation is impossible, since a variety of factors must be considered before building can begin.
- Do you have an existing deck?
- Does concrete need to be poured?
- What will be the size of your finished deck?
- How would you like to design the deck? (Shape, interior specifics)
- Will a roof need to be added?
These are just a few items that need to be taken into consideration before a true estimate can be given. However, homewyse.com states the cost of adding a screened in porch in 2013 runs about $4.74-$6.83 per square foot, a cost that takes into consideration the average price of materials and hourly labor wages.
