If you are like most of us who live in the Atlanta area, you enjoy the fall weather. An open porch allows you to enjoy the outdoors while still having protection from the rain, hot sun, or wind. Atlanta is full of unpredictable weather — warm one day, frost the next, and maybe some rain in-between. That shouldn’t deter you from enjoying the outdoors. That’s where installing an open porch comes in.
If you have an existing deck or patio, you may be able to build an open porch on top of that structure. If the deck is attached to your home, it becomes a natural extension of your indoor living space. Or, if you have open space ready, willing, and able to be used more productively, we’ve got you covered!
At its most basic level, the open porch offers you protection from the rain or sun, but there are many more advantages. Did you know an open porch offers all of the desirable amenities of an enclosed porch? For example, electrical outlets, ceiling fans/light kits, TVs, audio speakers, and even a fireplace are all possible with an open porch.
Extend Your Enjoyment of the Fall Weather!
When the temperature drops from 75 degrees on Friday to 50 on Saturday, wouldn’t it be nice to cozy up to your stone fireplace built right onto the porch? With electrical for lighting and entertainment, you only need to add seating and an outdoor television. This creates the perfect setting for an evening college football game or a movie you can enjoy with the entire family. For ambiance, consider a gabled ceiling with dimmable pendant lights or ceiling fans.
Bad Weather? No worries!
A covered open porch allows you to enjoy your outdoor spaces in any type of weather. Shade from the sun and shelter from the rain will keep you comfortable through the seasons. Plus, it protects your patio furniture and fabrics, outdoor rugs, and beautiful décor. All of these items normally take a beating when exposed to the weather on a daily basis.
Increase Your Home’s Value.
Without a doubt, a porch addition can add a lot of value to your home. After all, buyers these days are on the hunt for homes with outdoor living spaces.
