SAN ANTONIO-AUSTIN TEXASSCREEN PORCH BUILDERS SCREENED
PORCHES BUILDERS ROOMS PATIOS
Your New Favorite Place. There are many benefits to having a screened porch in a
bug-filled backyard. In addition to being pest free, you have a whole new room
for eating, entertaining and relaxing. It will be cooler on the porch than it is
outside the porch, and you won't have to fret too much about spills and
housekeeping. Unless you carpet, you can clean up with a bucket of water and the
sweep of a broom. What a great way to send the kids outside and still have them
confiined. If you don't have a screened porch, you can build one on a budget.
Screened porch design books abound.
First, consider the size of the screened porch, if you're adding one. How many
family members and guests do you expect will hang out here? Will that table and
chairs fit, and still leave room to open the door to the yard? Where will that
big, comfy chair go? Will you have more or less furniture or people than you do
in your family room? Remember, you want people to be able to walk around freely.
If you know what furniture you're going to use, set it out in the yard,
comfortably spaced, and then create "walls" with string. Measure to see how big
your string house is. To seat eight people comfortably, your porch probably
needs to be as big as 15 feet square.
Screened porch a great addition to
A screened porch is a great
addition to any home. With a screened porch you can add value and aesthetic
beauty to your home without breaking your budget. A screened porch is an

Screened Porches add beauty
Screened Porches add beauty, value,
and security to the home. While providing shelter from the elements, they also
act as a barrier to noise, and intruders. And they are a good financial
investment for the future: enclosing a covered porch later on can be done at a
Porches are more than a worthy
financial investment for the homeowner. They are an investment in the good
life, providing us with a place to pause from a hectic life, to gather with
others, to extend the vision of our lives beyond ourselves. These structures
remind all of us that no home is an island.
can turn a problem to a opportunity
So while there are any number of
reasons our back yards are all but abandoned these days, with some effort and
creativity, a screened porch can turn a problem into a design opportunity and
add value and interest to your home.
A studio roof is a single slopped roofline that will add a more uniformed
elevation to the appearance inside the room. The studio roof is a more
economical roof style, which may blend better on some houses then other more
expensive roof styles.
A cathedral (or
gabled) roof adds interest by providing an elevated peak to the center of the
roof. This roofline has two sections, sloping to each side of the porch. On the
inside, it adds additional height, creating a larger feel to the room. This is
the most popular roof style for screened porches.
hip roof is very similar to the cathedral roof with one slight difference.
This roofline adds one more additional slope to the front of the porch
creating three slopes to the roofline.
Skylights will add
more light to, as well as better views from your screened porch. There
should be consideration to the amount the roof slopes when adding skylights
so that leaking does not become an issue. Skylights can be ordered as either
operable (ones that open for more ventilation) or inoperable (fixed and
When adding a
screened porch to any house, the intended use is important to consider. Most
people add a ceiling fan as a way to help circulate the air as well as outlets
for floor lamps to increase additional lighting options inside the room.
Depending on county codes, you may be required to have a light near the door on
the outside of the room that is either motion sensitive or connected to a
A gas or wood-burning fireplace will ensure the room is
comfortable on chilly spring and fall evenings. During cooler weather also
extend the screen room's use. However, they can limit design possibilities.
In a room with only screens, you aren't limited by window sizes and can use
larger pieces of screening. This provides more of an outdoor feeling, but
the trade-off is less refined, all-weather furniture and more dirt and dust.
A screened room for entertaining, for example, may require a
fireplace and wide-screen TV, stereo surround sound, larger seating area,
and a popcorn maker!
Enclosed Screen Porch Ideas
Enclosing a porch with a screen is a great way to enjoy an outdoor space
through the entire year. It will keep you out of the elements and free from
bug attacks. There are a number of elements to consider when creating an
enclosed screen porch to make it a tranquil retreat that invites everyone to
Creating Useful Space
Screened porches are a great way to increase the space of an interior dining
area. If you have sliding glass doors that open to a porch from your dining
room, you can enclose this to make semi-outdoor eating areas free from flies
Create a sun room kids can get fresh air all day, regardless of rain or sun.
Screened porches make great playrooms to hold toys and games, even video
games if the roof and flooring are water-tight.
If you are an artist looking for a spot that has lots of light,
inspirational views and fresh air, an enclosed patio is a perfect option.
You can gaze from the porch to the sunset while capturing it with your
Consider where the door is that leads from the porch to the inside of the
home. A door at the corner of the porch can reduce the usable space of the
porch because you need to allow clear entry and exit.
A vaulted ceiling would make the room seem larger, opening it up not just to
the landscape but upwards to the sky. You may also want to add a quiet
ceiling fan to circulate air during days when there is no wind.
Front porches are great locations for a porch swing. You can also keep
delicate potted herbs on a front porch away from harsh sunlight. Construction
If you are enclosing a wooden deck porch, remember that any cracks or
grooves in the flooring will allow insects to crawl up.
You can place a screen from top to bottom or create a series of panels that
create a wall. This may be waist-high with screen going to the ceiling.
Creating nice frames for the screen to keep it taught.
If you are building a a porch from scratch, think about the furniture you
want to put there and the activities the porch will serve. Create a porch
large enough to not seem cluttered.

Introduction to San
One of Texas' most famous cities is the City of San Antonio-Austin. Located in the
south-central part of the state, San Antonio-Austin is Texas' second-largest city and
serves as an economic and cultural gateway to the American Southwest. The city
lies about 140 miles northwest of Corpus Christi on the Gulf of Mexico and 150
miles northeast of the city of Laredo on the Mexican border. Several major
freeways service the city, including Interstates I-10, I-35, I-37, and I-410;
U.S. Routes 87, 90, and 281; and Texas State Highways 16 and 151.
Named for Saint Anthony of Padua, on whose feast day (June 13) a Spanish
expedition explored the area in 1691, the San Antonio-Austin River was the principal
tributary which spawned the founding of its namesake village in 1718. The site,
on the river's west bank, was initially a stopping place on the Texas wilderness
trail leading to French trading posts in Louisiana. By 1731 the town was known
as San Antonio-Austin de Béxar, which in 1773 became the capital of Spanish Texas.
During the Texas Revolution, San Antonio-Austin was the site of several battles,
including the battle of the Alamo in 1836, in which 189 defenders held the old
Alamo mission for 13 days against some 4,000 Mexican troops. Although the
defenders were ultimately killed, the memorable phrase "Remember the Alamo"
became forever known as the rallying cry of the Texas Revolution against Mexico.
After the Civil War, San Antonio-Austin prospered as a cattle industry hub and military
center serving the border region and the Southwest. During the twentieth
century, San Antonio-Austin became an important military center for the Army and Air
Force through both world wars; a distinction which it has retained to this day.
San Antonio-Austin is the current home of Fort Sam Houston, Lackland Air Force Base,
Randolph Air Force Base, and Brooks City-Base, with Camp Stanley and Camp Bullis
located just outside the city limit
