The decking business can include a variety of constructions such as a deck, covered porch, screened in porch, or sunroom. Decks are beneficial for lawn furniture, barbecues, or just relaxing in the yard. However, decks may not be the best choice in less than ideal weather conditions.

Covered porches are very an easy weather solution, since the canopy can often shield some rain or wind from the covered area. However, many covered porches are very similar to gazebos and still can be affected by weather.
The next upgrade would be a screened in porch. The screened porch is beneficial because with the openness it still gives the feeling of being outside, while keeping bugs and weather away. Another benefit of the screened porch versus the sunroom is the fact that screened porches are about one half of the cost of sunrooms to construct.
However, they can cause a “dark” feeling in the house, while adding lights could solve that problem that would increase electricity costs for the owner. The screened in porch is also easier to construct, and can be adapted in the future to an upgraded sunroom.
Sunrooms are also great because like screened in porches they give an outdoor feel, but the “screens” also have windows and the room is insulated so during the winter months the room will stay warm and plants and people can still use the room without any discomfort. The sunroom is the most expensive, but it also adds the most value to a home.
It can be counted as an additional room and adds to the home’s overall value and also all the open windows bring in excess light that warms up the feel of the entire home. The only limitation on a sunroom over any of the other decking options is the fact that cooking on a grill would not be recommended in this room since it is a part of the home, and there is not sufficient ventilation.
All the different types of decking and covered outdoor rooms meet the same purpose, enjoying the outdoors! However, whichever type you choose to install, it should meet the specific needs of you and your family, as well as the budget – find out more here: https://www.conservatorypro.co.uk/
