Even the occasional snowflake makes summer seem so far away. The nuisance of mosquitoes is far from top of mind during the final days of winter. We encourage you to take advantage of the part of the year spent cooped up indoors to plan ahead for warmer seasons. When it comes to outdoor living, there are many considerations to be made. Fortunately, you can begin the process today as you anticipate the memories you will be making later this year. During these quieter days, there is time to decide exactly what you want from the summer months.
Spend three seasons outside!
The off-season is the best possible time to devote real thought to outdoor living projects. If you’d like to make a substantial improvement to your home’s outdoor space without making a big investment, there’s no better single change than adding a screened porch. With a relatively quick and affordable project, you can start spending your outdoor time bug-free while still letting in natural light, fresh breezes, and the fragrance of spring flowers. A screened-in porch protects you from the elements and the glare of the sun while providing the perfect place to entertain friends, share meals with your family, or escape with a warm drink. Thanks to our Northern Virginia climate, this seemingly minor change can extend your enjoyment of outdoor living well into Autumn and positively impact the value of your home.
Already love your porch?
You won’t believe how easy it can be to install a screened enclosure on your existing deck and start enjoying the benefits immediately. At NOVA, we use a modern screening system that’s high-performance and low maintenance, and it requires absolutely no additional construction. The durable screens — available in an incredible array of sizes — attach seamlessly to existing porches and can easily be removed. Screens are built into the frame surrounding the panels to ensure that bugs cannot get in through non-screen surfaces. Once it’s completed, caring for your screened-in deck or porch is a breeze. Should a screen ever break, it’s easy to fix only the broken portion while leaving the rest intact, so that maintenance costs are kept to a minimum. And all NOVA screened enclosures, whether new or added to existing structures, are covered by our 5-year labor warranty.
Need a new porch?
If you long for a screen porch but don’t have hardscaping at all, you’ve come to the right place. As a Class A Virginia Licensed Contractor, NOVA is fully qualified to design and build your new screened porch or deck — or pergola, or gazebo — from the ground up. With the temperature controlled by the passing air, you’ll have no need for additional air conditioning or heating systems to be placed in your porch. Fewer electrical connections help the screened-enclosure installation move along faster. We make point-of-sale loan options available so that homeowners are able to finance the outdoor spaces of their dreams without breaking the bank. These options make home improvements — like porch screening — accessible while ensuring you get exactly the project you envision.
Screened-In Porches at NOVA
As with all our landscaping and hardscaping services, we strive to go above and beyond in the delivery of our deck and porch-screening projects. You can count on us to take care of all permitting, liability, and structural concerns. In addition to finding the ideal frame configuration for your house, we add screens beneath the porch to prevent bugs from entering between the floorboards. Our typical screened-porch project is completed in two weeks. If you’re ready to find out what’s possible for your home, request an estimate today!
