There’s only one thing better than spending the summer on your deck in Calgary, and that’s spending summer in your new screen room built on top of your deck in Calgary. A screen room is a permanent extension to your home that comes at a fraction of the cost of a full room. The reduction in finances comes from the fact that your deck provides all of the foundations, meaning you don’t have to dig deep holes or worry about levelling concrete floors. Your deck is also included in the floor plan of your house, so you don’t need to worry about extra building permits either.
Benefits Of A Screen Room
While it’s true that a screen room is more cost effective than even building a simple sunroom, it’s not a free project and you’ll still need to finance it. Therefore, it’s worth considering the benefits of a screen room instead of keeping your deck before making the investment:
- Increase your home’s value – even though the cost doesn’t reflect it, a screen room still acts as an extra room in your home which will drive up the price of your house dramatically. Dollar for dollar, screen rooms represent one of the best return on investments that you can make for your home, even if you’re not planning on selling any time soon. If you are in the market for moving, you’ll be amazed at how many potential buyers see your screen room as the jewel in the crown, and as a major reason to make a competitive offer.
- Protection from the elements – of course, adding a screen room to your home should also be an investment in you and your family. A screen room offers much better protection from the elements throughout the Calgary year. During the summer, you’ll benefit from the roof and the mesh screens will block out the bugs, while during the spring and fall, you’ll find relief from the persistent Calgary winds. This extra protection means you’ll spend considerably more time out in your screen room than you ever would spend on your deck.
- Extra space all day long – finally, you and your family will benefit from having an extra room that you can use whenever you want. Most people will only use their deck when it’s sunny and warm outside, meaning that it gets used infrequently. When you turn it into a screen room, you’ll be able to sit and watch the sunrise over your garden with a coffee in the mornings and cuddle up with your loved ones at night.
