Deck Enclosure Ideas
Looking to Build a Screened Porch on Your Deck?One of the most efficient ways to build a screened porch is on an existing deck or patio. No matter which method you choose to build your screened porch over your deck or patio, you will hopefully find that it is relatively easy.
It is also cost effective, too. Why? Because you already have the floor in place. Yes!

Be Wise When Building a Porch on Your Deck
Screen Porch Case StudyWe are pleased to show you before and after pictures of a screen porch case study by Smyth Property Solutions, LLC in Atlanta GA. We appreciate their generosity in allowing us to show you their construction project regarding an existing single family 2-story brick home in Atlanta, GA.
The ChallengeThe existing living room, as well as the deck off the back of the house, was not serving the family's lifestyle comfortably enough.
They longed for more day-to-day living space, within which they could expand their seating arrangements and have more "seasonal" options for living.
Home prior to new screen porch
Nice deck but it has limited privacy
Deck doesn't adequately fit home's design
The SolutionThe deck was converted to a screened porch with French doors leading out from the living room and a new stair leading down to the driveway. A new hipped roof was designed to cover the porch and tie in seamlessly with the existing lower roof line.
Inside, a beadboard ceiling was designed with new recessed down lights and a new ceiling fan and speakers wired back to the main house stereo system. New wood flooring and stair treads were stained black to create a simple and fresh contrast (in keeping with the client's style).
