When you are having a screen porch built, there is a big difference in talking to someone who can build a screen porch and those that design and build screen porches every day! We have had countless prospects call us at Archadeck of Charlotte to look at the potential of a screen porch for the back of their house. When we recommend a gable roof for example, we hear “the last guy said we could not have a gable roof”.
Designing and building screen porch roofs does take a lot of experience and vision. The back of the house has several potential obstacles that include but are not limited to chimneys, windows, different roof lines that may jet into the space, dryer vents, air returns, roof vents, etc…
Roof designs are critical because they can affect the amount of light that comes back into your home. They also are critical to insure the porch looks architecturally correct and appear as if it were built with the home, not as an afterthought.
