Beat the bugs and spend more time outdoors! Enjoying a summer rainstorm from the comfort of your screen porch is a highlight of a mountain home. Screen porches turn your outdoor living space into a four-seasons room, providing protection from sun, snow and pests. Outdoor furniture lasts longer, stays cleaner and pets are more secure. Itâ€™s the perfect setting for a sitting room, dining areaâ€”even sleeping.
