Most homeowners know the basic difference between screened porches, 3-season rooms and sunrooms. So I won’t insult your intelligence, however, I would like to tell you why a 3-season room in this climate is a fabulous addition to any home. We live in an area of the country that is temperate ( yes, I hear you this past winter was extremely cold). Screened porches are great and they keep the bugs out and allow the breeze in, but when winter arrives they mostly go unused. In the Piedmont Triad of NC by upgrading your screened porch to a 3-season room you will achieve almost year round use of your room. If your home has a southern exposure, even better, you have a green heat source during the day. When you add a gas log fireplace, or other heat source, you achieve an all year round usable room.
Archadeck uses a product called Eze-Breeze windows that allows you the versatility of a screened porch and a 3-season at the same time. This product will add a little more cost to your screened porch, but the benefits are well worth it. Imagine you and your loved ones enjoying the view and relaxing during the coldest months of the year.
