What Are the Benefits of Enclosed Porches?

A front or back porch would make a great addition to any home. However, which type of porch is best suited for your home? An open front porch is the most popular choice among homeowners, but if you want a bit more privacy, an enclosed porch could be the better choice.

Multi-functional Recreational Space 

Enclosed porches serve as a recreational space where you can unwind after a long day or where guests can catch up with one another during parties. You can also use it as a playroom for kids. Unlike an open porch, an enclosed porch has screen walls that can keep toddlers from wandering off. 

Protection From Pests and Uncooperative Weather

The screen walls also keep out insects, making sure you can relax on your porch without having to deal with annoying pests. Plus, the enclosure protects you and your patio furniture from light to moderate rain. 

Better Comfort 

Heat and cool air can be channelled into an enclosed porch in winter and summer, ensuring you get to enjoy a certain level of comfort even in extreme temperatures. 

Key Considerations When Building an Enclosed Porch

What are the factors you need to consider when you’re having an enclosed porch built? Here’s a quick overview: 

  • Building codes and zoning laws – You’ll need to apply for a building permit before you can start the construction of your porch. Building codes and zoning laws tend to vary from area to area so it’s best to check with your local building authority, or consult general and residential roofing contractors.  
  • Space requirements – You need to make sure there will be plenty of yard space left after your porch is built. 
  • Curb appeal and resale value – A porch is a significant investment, which is why you need to maximize your ROIs. You can ask an experienced contractor about the features that can help boost your home’s property value.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
