Screen Porch Development in Atlanta, Georgia & Beyond by Factory Direct Remodeling of Atlanta

The addition of a screen porch in a temperate climate like Atlanta, Georgia is a unique home improvement project because it can be done in phases. Unlike a room addition, which typically must be completed all at once to protect the integrity of the project, a screen porch is an outdoor room that is built to withstand the elements. Therefore, if you are undecided about certain elements of your screen room or if you are trying to stretch your budget, your screen porch construction can be paced to match your needs.

Screen Porch Development in Atlanta, Georgia & Beyond by Factory Direct Remodeling of Atlanta For example, your screen porch will require a foundation. Some Atlanta area homeowners use a wood deck as their screen porch foundation, but to ensure the tightest fit between your screen porch and the ground (which will protect your future screen porch from insects and dirt), a cement foundation is usually recommended. Before the planning of your foundation begins, you should arrive at the exact measurements you will want for your screen porch and establish a foundation accordingly. Even without a roof, screens, doors, and windows, an outdoor cement foundation can be very useful to homeowners as a simple open porch.

The next step in your screen porch development is the roof, sometimes known as a patio cover. Factory Direct Remodeling offers patio covers in vinyl, wood, and aluminum, all of which are popular in the greater Atlanta, Georgia area. Your patio cover can provide shade from the hot sun as well as shelter from rain, turning your outdoor patio slab into a much more functional and livable space.

Finally, after a foundation and a roof structure, you can enclose your porch with framing, screens, and a door. Amazingly, Factory Direct Remodeling of Atlanta can add these elements to your screened porch in a way that makes it easier to convert your screen porch into a sunroom addition at a future date. Our screen porch enclosures also can be fitted with gutters and downspouts to channel any Atlanta area rainstorm away from your screen porch and home foundation.
