Do you love your screened porch?
I'm trying to make a final decision on whether to screen in 12x22 feet of my existing deck.
I want to do this for a few reasons:
1) I don't like to sit outside at night because of the mosquitos.
2) My deck takes forever to dry after it rains as it faces North. (It seems to rain alot in Ohio!)
3) I have two birch and several maple trees nearby and hate all the debris and leaves that fall all over the deck, into the floor cracks etc.
4) It would be a nice area for my dog to hang out in and a transition area to wipe paws etc. when he comes into the house.
I'm worried about spending the money approximately $13,000 and then finding myself not using the room enough to justify the cost.
That's the logical side of me, the emotional side says, I want it, and I think it will look great and I don't care how much it costs!
Any experienced porch owners want to share their experiences/advice before I take the plunge?
