Screened Porches

When it is buggy out, screened porches are in their glory!  I love to eat dinner on my open porch (as well as drink my morning coffee), but if the bugs are out, I go inside.  Screened porches solve those problems entirely.  It is just lucky for me, that my property rarely has a bug problem.  For some homeowners, the mosquitos, gnats, and other biting insects come out like clockwork, making it hard to relax and enjoy their porches.

A great innovation we have used in a number of projects is Phantom Screens.  With the click of a button, an open porch can become a screened porch, free of pests.  Below is a little video we made of one of those porches.  Open porches become screened porches with virtually no effort.

There is no question that the place to be in the summer is on the porch.  How much you need screens depends on your bug population.  The good news is that if you set up your porch for screens, it is really easy to switch them out for panels that allow you to enjoy your porch virtually year-round.  Screened porches become glassed-in porches with just a little effort.
