Start enjoying the outdoors in the comfort of your home without being annoyed by those pesky bugs. Screened-in porches can add beauty and value to your home if done correctly. Porches can be built on wooden flooring or hardscapes (cement, brick pavers, blue stone etc).
Extra amenities to consider for even more comfort include:
- Infrared heating elements for those chilly evenings
- Ceiling Fans
- Can lights
- Granite counters
Battaglia Homes uses cedar materials to construct our screened-in porches which have an attractive appearance and hold up very well in sun, heat, cold and rain. Some of the methods and techniques used to construct our great looking porches include the following:
- Arched detail consisting of 2 piece 1 x 12s with routed edges between 8 x 12 cedar timbers.
- Top of columns wrapped with 1 x 12, 4 ¼ crown and cap detail with routed edges and nose detail.
- Base consists of 1 x 8, cap detail and shoe molding.
- Screens built with solid 2 x 4s with cove inside and out, routed edges and screen molding.
- Ceilings – tongue and groove 1 x 6 v-groove.
