Now is the time of year when many homeowners begin to analyze their interior and exterior living space needs. The upcoming holiday season can bring joy and happiness as beloved friends and family come to call, but it can also bring you to the realization that you need more space! Instead of considering an interior home addition, why not consider an outdoor room addition? Outdoor rooms can provide various levels of comfort while allowing you to enjoy the beauty and splendor of the outdoors during the ever-changing seasons of fall & winter. Archadeck of Central SC has many outdoor room options to suit your needs and budget.

Out of all the outdoor living space designs we build here in the Columbia, SC, area, outdoor rooms promote livability in spite of what Mother Nature may throw your way. Some of the outdoor room we specialize in are screened porches, 3 season rooms and sunrooms. Often, our outdoor rooms are designed as part of an outdoor living combination space that can include a deck, patio, outdoor fireplace or other structure.

Outdoor rooms are similar in the views they provide, however, their protective benefits can be quite different. Screened porches, sunrooms and three season rooms are great examples of sheltered outdoor rooms that extend your living spaces and your hours of leisure at home.

Screened Porches

Screened porches are, in essence, a covered room with screened openings instead of windows. The screening serves as a barrier to bothersome insects and allergens and will reduce the effects of inclement weather. Having a screen porch will give you the opportunity to have an “outdoor” room with reduced exposure to the harsh elements. Since screened porches are shade structures because they are built under the cover of a roof, they also offer superior protection from the sun and heat on those humid South Carolina days.

Three Season Rooms

Three season rooms take the benefits of a screened porch a step further by using a convertible panel system that allows you to use screens or clear panels as you see fit. You can extend the function and versatility of a new or existing screened porch by converting it into a three season room through the use of a convertible panel system such as the ones we offer with our aluminum and vinyl outdoor rooms or via a porch enclosure system.These can be integrated into the initial design of a new screened porch or outdoor room addition, or as an enhancement/upgrade to an existing structure. By simply clicking these panels in, or out, of a fixed position on their effortless four-track system, you can let Mother Nature in, or keep Old Man Winter out! The choice is yours!

Sunrooms

What differentiates sunrooms from other kinds of structures are the many windows, rather than screens, that immediately satisfy the conflicting desires for nature and comfort. It’s a place to enjoy your morning coffee and newspaper with a lovely view of your garden or landscape, a protected area for children and pets to enjoy the sun, the perfect place to host holiday get-togethers and dinners. You can enjoy all of these activities in your sunroom without being bothered by pesky insects and the horrible effects of pollen.

With a sunroom, you can enjoy your backyard even in a downpour. Unlike a deck, when you’re in a sunroom a pop-up rain shower can’t run you off from your space, not to mention the fact that your comfortable sunroom furniture won’t be ruined by rain. And talk about a room with a view…for homes with a view of the lake or a private wooded lot, the structural components of a sunroom greatly reduce blockage of those desirable views.

Screened porches, are in essence, a covered porch that has screened openings instead of windows. The screen serves as a barrier from bothersome insects and will reduce the effects of inclement weather. Having a screen porch will give you the opportunity to have an “outdoor” room with reduced exposure to the harsh elements. Since screened porches are shade structures because they are built under the cover of a roof, they also offer superior protection from the sun and heat on those humid South Carolina summer days. Screened porches can be designed to contain many amenities much like an interior room. Ceiling fans, recessed lighting, and even a place to mount your outdoor TV have become common among homeowners building a screen porch. You can even upgrade your screen porch by adding more luxurious amenities such as an outdoor fireplace and adding sliding window conversions such as an Eze Breeze sliding panel system. These panels enable you to turn your screened porch into a 3 -season room to better utilize the area for more time throughout the year. Eze Breeze works by allowing you to control the amount of screen you leave exposed, from half screen and half sliding panel, to closing the panels completely and creating a room with the “feel” of a sunroom without the extra installations required to have a sunroom. With an enclosure system such as this paired with a space heater and/ or air conditioner you can enjoy the benefits of the space here in South Carolina all year.

Archadeck of Central SC also offers four-track enclosure systems on many of our screened porch additions. Choosing a four-track screened porch enclosure makes it possible to keep the screens and maintain the comfort. The 4-track system allows you to open up to 75% of the window area for added ventilation and to indulge in better backyard views. This system also enables homeowners to get more use out of their screened porch for longer intervals through the changing seasons.

A sunroom or 4-season room is a room that functions as an interior room but allows you to take in the vistas of the outdoors year-round. You can enjoy a cup of cocoa from a warm and cozy nook inside you sunroom and watch the snow fall in the winter undaunted by the chill of Mother nature. A sunroom, in essence, is an interior room with many windows. Sunrooms are more complicated because they require the same construction fundamentals that an interior addition requires, such as HVAC systems , meaning they have to be insulated, heated and cooled. Choosing a sunroom does however open up a greater realm of interior finishing choices that you cannot get with other outdoor living structures. The materials include ceramic tile, hardwoods, wooden detailing and moldings, and more. Since the use of sheetrock comes into play with a sunroom, you can use paint, faux finishes, wainscoting, and even wallpaper to show off your personal style. The possibilities are endless. A sunroom will often have dual entry from the interior of your home as well as the exterior via deck, patio or porch to offer you the ultimate in convenience for indoor/outdoor entertaining, and indoor to outdoor transition
