Archadeck of Central SC explores the varied benefits of wooden vs. aluminum screened rooms

Screened in Porches That Blend Right Into Your Home

Archadeck of Central SC specializes in outdoor room additions that blend in seamlessly with your home and landscape.

With all the choices available in the world of outdoor living structures today, sometimes it can be a daunting task to know which outdoor structure addition will best fit your needs. In addition, there are many materials, finishes, textures and colors to select from. One of our goals as an outdoor living space design and building expert is to help educate you regarding material choices in order to help you make the most informed decision about your anticipated outdoor living addition.

Two of our most popular outdoor living spaces are screened porches and three season rooms. We offer both wooden-framed and aluminum outdoor rooms designs. Each of these materials offers varied benefits while still providing the lifestyle enhancement and quality you have come to rely on from Archadeck of Central SC. We have put together a comparison of the benefits of wood versus aluminum when used in a screened porch or three season room addition.

Wooden-Framed Outdoor Rooms

Wooden-framed screened porches and three season rooms are a good fit for creating a space with a natural feel. Wood is a substantial material when your tastes lean more towards the look of a traditional screened porch. Pressure treated pine is not a good candidate for painting. We recommend leaving it natural or applying stain to retain the rustic attributes of natural wood.

From a project timeline perspective, wooden-framed screened porches and three season rooms typically take a little longer to build compared to aluminum. However, for homeowners who love the look and presence of natural wood, it is well worth the wait.

Aluminum-Framed Outdoor Rooms

Our aluminum-framed outdoor rooms are custom-made to order and designed to match your home’s architecture and colors. Unlike other aluminum outdoor room companies’ that are built using a kit, we custom design your outdoor room according to your spatial needs, roof pitch and desired interior amenities. We offer both shed roof and gable roof designs that compliment your existing home. Our gable roofed designs allow for a shingled roof, which we match as closely as possible to your existing roof. Gable roofs also allow for higher ceilings within your outdoor room making it feel more open and airy.

The build time for an aluminum outdoor room is considerably less than a wooden-framed one — which translates into being able to enjoy it sooner! In addition, maintenance is a breeze since the space will never require the laborious task of staining or sealing, there is no siding to replace in the future, and our shed roof designs don’t require shingles. Aluminum delivers a clean and sleek finish perfect for many of today’s contemporary homes. We offer four color choices in our aluminum outdoor rooms. These include bronze, white and two neutral tones that allow freedom in matching the new room to your home’s trim and architectural details. White remains our most popular aluminum color choice among homeowners in the Columbia area.

Our outdoor rooms will provide years of enjoyment for you and your family no matter which material you choose to use. They will expand your living space and allow you to enjoy the benefits of the outdoors without the undesirable insects, dangerous UV rays and inclement weather.

The lightweight nature of these rooms allows for many options that wood framed rooms don’t offer.  While wood can add significant weight and therefore creates extra pressure on the house’s existing structure, many aluminum rooms can be added without significant modification to the existing structure. Because of the nature of the materials we use ,  your outdoor room is also very easy to maintain. The structure will require no painting; there is no siding to replace in the future, and our shed roof designs don’t require shingles.
