Screen Porch to Combat the Heat

Posted by Emma Weldon on June 14, 2017

Coming Soon: Baseball, Beaches, and 90+ Degree Days!

April showers might bring May flowers – but come July and August, we’re all going to fry! Atlanta’s summers are some of the hottest and most humid around. Fortunately, there’s still time for Home ReBuilders’ design build team to help cover and screen in your porch, so you can enjoy it during this summer and for years to come!

Screen porches are the perfect way to spend time outdoors without worrying about bugs or the sun beating down on you. You can set up a table to dine al fresco with your family, without the citronella candles and flyswatters you might need when eating in your backyard. Or, set up a comfy reading nook to enjoy the summer’s best novels with a warm breeze floating through the room. Let your family pets enjoy the porch, too! With screen porch additions, you can let your four-legged best friend get some fresh air without the worry of them running away or getting overheated in the sun.

While many of our clients set up their screen porches with a traditional layout including a dining table or conversation area, we’ve also seen screen porches with fun and funky touches! Consider adding a hanging swing with pillows in fun, vibrant colors; installing soaring wood beam ceilings with recessed lighting and speakers; or using your screen porch as a hobby area, yoga room, or art studio. The possibilities are endless!
