Many people contact Central Florida Screens because they want to gain the extra space and comfort that comes with a screen porch. In a previous blog post, we talked about all the ways these 3-season rooms can come in handy in your daily life, from providing an energizing place to eat breakfast to making room for family game nights. What many customers don’t necessarily realize is that a well-constructed screen porch can also deliver significant return on investment if and when it comes time to sell your home. Here are a few reasons why screen porches increase home value in the Daytona and Orlando areas.

Think Small

Many people mistakenly think that bigger is always better when it comes to screen porch systems. However, many experts agree that a lower-budget project typically offers the chance to recover 75 percent of the cost in re-appraisal or re-sale value.

Keep It Simple

When planning your screen porch, you may want to go all out on the most expensive materials and luxurious fixtures. If you’re planning to never move away from your home, enjoying your screened in deck for years to come, this is a fine idea. However, some experts say that spending the extra money on fancy add-ons isn’t really worth the investment. Projects of this nature that exceed $50,000 but aren’t that much larger tend to only deliver 50 percent return on investment.

Consider The Climate

Not all regions of the country are appropriate for screen porches. If you’re in a place that has extremely wet summers or freezing cold winters with lots of snow, you might find that your 3-season room actually becomes a one season room. Thankfully, this isn’t the case in the Orlando and Daytona areas. We’re in the perfect position to enjoy our patio enclosures almost all year-round!
