March is the month many St. Louisans begin cleaning off their patios and porches. While we still experience some colder days in March here in the St. Louis area, we don’t get bent out of shape. We know warmer weather is just around the corner.

Warmer temperatures means more opportunity to get outside and do the things we love. Roeser Home Remodeling knows one thing our St. Louis friends and family love is screened-in porches.

Porch Ideas

The ideas for screened-in porches are endless but one thing they all have in common is that they are designed to bring our love for the outdoors in, into our homes. If you are considering a home remodel that encompasses your love for the outdoors and are wondering where to begin, Roeser Home Remodeling can help you design a style that fits your home and your families need.

Porches Then

When you consider screened-in porches, you may have a memory pop up of your grandparents or parent’s family home, and the porch that served as a family gathering spot to converse and play games. Your memory may not serve you well when it comes to what your grandparents or parents had to do to maintain that wooden structure.

If the windows didn’t have screens and just opened into the outdoors, then there may have been a constant battle not just with bugs but also with water. It rains a lot here in the St. Louis area. When it rains, it is usually windy. I’m sure you get the picture. The problem of rain and wind would also create mold and even rotting wood if constant vigilance was not kept preventing the common occurrence.

Today’s Porches

But what about now? Home building and remodeling have come a long way. The modern screened-in porch is nothing like what your grandparents had. So, what are some modern ideas for screened-in porches that might come to mind?

Of course, there are many ways to enjoy the outdoors from the comforts of your home. A large deck, gazebo, or pergola might be the perfect fit for your family. However, if you want something that can be used year-round, then a screened-in porch might be the better option.

Screened in porches today take on an entirely new concept. The design would keep with the style and aesthetic of your home and add not just value but eye appeal along with flow from the inside out. Roeser Home Remodeling has a variety of options to suit your style.

The common theme now is windows, windows, windows. This will allow the sun to come in and bring the outdoors right to you, without having to put on a coat, sweater, or even shoes.

A sun room or screened-in porch will give you more space to sprawl out and enjoy you family time or quiet time to sit and relax. It is a comfortable space that will allow you to enjoy nature no matter what the season in St. Louis.

Many modern day screened-in porches can be designed to open and literally become an extension of your home for outside entertaining. You can add features to fit your lifestyle like built in coffee or wine bars, rock walls, pond-less waterfalls, pizza ovens, hibachi grills, and firepits with built in seating.

Yes, here in St. Louis, we are ready for winter to be over and spring to finally be here. We want to enjoy the outdoors and fresh air. Roeser Home Remodeling can show you how to bring the outdoors in to your home, from idea, to plan, to final solution, your sun room, or screened-in porch will look amazing and be the perfect extra space for your family.
