For over 18 years, Archadeck of Columbus has been building screen porches in the Columbus market. Are you thinking about adding a screen porch to your home? There are so many different options, choices, and considerations. One of the things we enjoy most is walking through these decisions with you. What size porch fits your needs? Do you want a rustic look or a more finished interior look? What are the flooring options and which best suits you? We’ve built hundreds porches, sunrooms and decks in the Columbus market and our consultation is completely free.
Rustic Screen Porch
In Columbus, the rustic screen porch look is very popular. Not only is it cozy and like a mountain cabin hideaway, it’s reminiscent of porches from our youth. Today’s rustic screen porches are not like older screen porches though. Today, our customers often choose pine or cedar tongue-and-groove and select gable roofs with vaulted ceilings and various electrical amenities such as fans, speakers, lights, and other accoutrements.
Combination Rustic and More Formal Screen Porch
Today, there are so many options for every facet of your screen porch. Your flooring can be paver flooring, tile, concrete, wood, composite, or anything else you can think of. This particular screen porch utilizes a great combination of some rustic tongue and groove pine with an elegant floor that’s actually made of pavers even thought it looks like tile. Ahhh, furniture. Today’s furniture choices are so wide ranging, so colorful, and so comfortable! Remember the metal glider with the plastic cushions? Today’s cushions can be performance fabrics like Sunbrella which can be rained on, spilled on, and left outside. Then they can be cleaned up, dried off, and never worse for wear.
Rustic Yet Elegant at the Same Time
Tongue and groove pine is very popular on screened porches. With enclosed rafters, this sunroom has a little bit more of a formal feel.
Elevated Screened Porch in Upper Arlington
The elevated screened porch is on a very steep drop off making it challenging to get to the back yard. We used a spiral staircase down to the yard.
Porches have the power to enhance and improve your home in ways nothing else can. Many homeowners thinking about adding a porch may be wondering if a porch will increase the value of your home. Those who’ve already added a porch and are now enjoying it will answer, Yes, it certainly will!
