You might be a porch person if…

Are you a porch person? Why sit indoors and watch spring’s arrival through the window when you could enjoy it so much more from a front-row seat on the porch?


You might be a porch person if you like to experience the seasons with all your senses.

Adding a screened porch to your home will give you that perfect space where you can experience the changing seasons year-round. Bring all of your senses to the party we call “spring busting out all over.” Spring, summer, fall, winter – a screened porch allows you to see, feel, hear, smell and even taste the seasons. Each turning page of the calendar brings transformation outdoors, and each day may bring some incremental change you will miss if you are not out there!

You might be a porch person if you like to feel the wind in your hair.

Catch every breeze that swishes by on its way to wherever it is that breezes go! In the summer, much-welcome breezes break the sultry afternoon heat. Just before a summer storm, the atmosphere swirls with a charge in the air. In the fall, gentle gusts sweep leaves from the trees and deposit them at your doorstep. Spending time on a screened porch from The Porch Company lets you enjoy all of those precious breezes. And when the air is still, stir up a breeze of your own with the ceiling fan on your lovely screened porch.

You might be a porch person if you like the aroma of spring blooms without the nuisance of insects.

Where else can you enjoy the aromas of the seasons without being burdened by insects or even rain? If you have fragrant trees and plants – southern magnolia, gardenias in full bloom or honeysuckle vines – there is no better place to enjoy their aroma. The screens of your new screened porch will allow the fragrance in while keeping the insects out. The way we see it, no matter the season, it’s always the right time of year to enjoy a screened porch. Why You Need a Screened Porch, Any Time of Year … Especially Now.


You might be a porch person if you like being outdoors, but don’t enjoy the blaring summer sun and heat.

With a porch roof, you’ll always have shade and you’ll always have a breeze, because we install ceiling fans almost everywhere we go! Shade and breezes are two of the best antidotes to the sultry heat of summer. A porch roof blocks UV rays, too, and fans keep the air circulating. If you love the outdoors, minus the heat, a screened porch is the ideal outdoor living space. You can read more about porches as the perfect shade solution: Have it Made in the Shade All Summer Long With a Porch Company Porch. Now, how many ceiling fans would you like on your new screened porch?


You might be a porch person if you like to entertain outdoors.

For parties, a screened porch provides an ambiance no other setting can offer. Friends, good food, conversation, a glass of wine, fresh air and ambiance … Add one of our fireplaces to your screened porch design and you will have the allure of a fire feature as well. Keeping your guests “on the porch” makes for easier clean-up after any get-together. Many of our Porch Company screened porch designs are planned with separate living and dining areas (two zones), the perfect setting for mixing and mingling.

These two porches are wonderful examples of “dual spaces” designed for dining and relaxation, and perfect for entertaining:
