Screened-In Porch Wake Forest
Few relaxing experiences can compare to sitting on a screened-in porch while chatting with family and friends.
Of course, if you don’t have one of these convenient porches already attached to your home, completing the project on your own could be a bit too much of a challenge. You’ll want it done correctly so the finished product will last for years, which is why you should turn to Reliant Home Contractors instead. Get in touch with our team today, and you could be enjoying a new screened-in porch in short order!
The Value Of A Screened-In Porch
The popularity of screened-in porches throughout this region can be summed up in a single word – bugs. That’s the primary enemy that people have in mind when creating these spaces, as sitting outside enjoying a quiet morning or a warm evening is far more inviting when you don’t have to battle pesky little bugs the whole time. If your porch doesn’t currently have a screen, or if you are having a new porch created, making an effort to keep bugs out will be well worth it in the end.
In addition to playing defense against bugs, a screened-in porch will also keep other little critters out, and it might stay cleaner since debris like leaves and needles won’t be able to fall off trees and make their way inside. A screened-in space is a wonderful bonus to have on a home, and it’s easy to bring to life with a partner like Reliant Home Contractors.
Building A Deck With Screened-In Porch
If you think of having a new porch built to add outdoor living space with furniture to your property, having that porch screened-in will be well worth the investment. You are likely to get much more use out of the space when a screen surrounds it, and the increase in the cost of the screened-in porch will not be so much that it will put the project out of reach in most cases.
How much does it cost to add on a screened-in porch?
A screened in porch cost depends on the contractors and the materials being used, but usually, costs are $8.40 – $12.45 per square foot.
So, if you want a small porch of about 150 square feet, it’ll cost you about $1,350 – $1,500. A medium-sized porch is around 200 to 250 square feet, so it could cost around $2400, possibly more or less. We consider a big porch to be about 300 to 400 square feet, and porches that size cost about or over $3000.
Other things affect the costs of your dream porch. If your neighborhood has an HOA, your screened porch ideas will be limited by the styles you can use. Be sure to check with your HOA before calling us to build a screened in porch. If HOA isn’t an issue, other things that’ll affect the cost of your screened porch are placement, materials (for the floor, stairs, railing, etc.), and zoning and permits. We work with local companies to provide high-quality materials for screened porches.

What is the best type of screened-in porch?
Screened in porches have evolved since they were first built in 1938. Now there are many more screening materials, each offering advantages and disadvantages. There is no “best material,” but this will help you find the “best material” for your dream screened in porch.
Fiberglass is a very common mesh. It’s dark, offers excellent visibility, has reduced sun glare, and is the most affordable material. It also has flexibility making it the easiest to work with. While these are excellent pros, their cons are that it tears easily and stretches out, creating holes for bugs to enter your porch.
Aluminum costs more than fiberglass mesh. While it has great visibility like its counterpart, glare is an issue for some homeowners. It’s also harder to install because it’s rigid, but the rigidity of it helps it stand up to elements. It won’t tear or stretch open nearly as easily as fiberglass mesh. On the other hand, you have to be careful of denting the material. It also corrodes in a coastal environment.
Other premium metal meshes like copper, stainless steel, and bronze are used for higher-end jobs for their specific coloring. These materials are stronger than aluminum and fiberglass but can still bend, though they’re much less susceptible to it.
Does a screened-in front porch add value to your home?
There are many home additions and extensions to choose from, and some add value while others don’t. You may want to know if the screened in front porch will add value to your home. Short answer: yes, screened in porches add value to your home.
The NAHB conducted a study in 2021 and found that 65% of homes in the U.S. had screened in porches. They’re not going out of style, and things in style add value because they’re desired. This home extension can have an ROI of up to 75%, which is similar to the most popular renovations like kitchen remodels and bathroom improvements.
To get a high ROI for your screened in porch, you must consider the neighborhood’s size, location, view, amenities, and comparable standards. By hiring Reliant Home Contractors, you’ll have a premier-quality porch built that will be the envy of your neighbors and visiting family. A screened in front porch can increase the value of your home by 4% – 6%. It’ll stand out among other houses on the market, starting at the screened in the entrance.
