Screened Porch Project Details
Location: Waynesboro, VA
Services Performed: Lean to roof over the existing patio that creates a covered open screened porch area.
Project Timeline: September 2017 – Two Weeks
From Concrete Slab to Screened Porch:
Walt and Janet had just moved into the area and bought a new home built by a spec home builder. The overall design and layout of the home was nice, but the back yard and the back porch left a lot to be desired and wasn’t very suitable for their needs, with only a small concrete slab for a porch that was too small to be of much good use.
We built a screened porch with a lean to roof above and also increased the width of the porch by 6’. The porch was built with siding and shingles to match the existing house, with the entire porch being built in low maintenance materials. We installed lighting and a ceiling fan in the porch, and with the increase in size, it made the back porch area something that is practical to use!
Cutting Concrete – The Biggest Challenge With the Screened Porch
The biggest challenge on this project was that the concrete slab that was in place already did not have sufficient footers to carry the new roof load. The two outside posts we were able to install new piers easily, and the two inside posts we had to cut a notch in the existing concrete slab. We then had to dig out and install new concrete piers below the existing concrete slab without removing the concrete in that area!
Screened Porches – Improving Your Outdoor Living Space
Screen porches are a great way to improve outdoor living space. They provide a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy summer evenings. In addition, screened porches are a great way to keep mosquitoes away while enjoying the outdoors. And when you need the perfect place to grill, you’ll be ready to go. Consider the benefits of a screened porch. And think about the advantages of improving your outdoor living space.
