A professionally constructed covered porch addition adds charm and extra square footage to your house, and those are just two reasons why this kind of home improvement project is the dream of so many homeowners. But is it right for your house? Here are three things to consider.
You Want to Lower Your Home Cooling Bills
The shade provided by the porch covering outside your home limits the sunlight that would normally increase the temperature of your house. This means your cooling system doesn’t need to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature and your utility bills could be lower.
You Want to Make More Use of Your Outdoor Space
A covered porch offers the ideal combination of being outside while also being sheltered from the elements. Outdoor gatherings become effortless when you have a porch to host guests, and sunny or rainy days are equally comfortable. With the appropriate outdoor heating sources, you could even use the porch year-round.
You Want to Improve Your Home’s Value
Although it’s unlikely that this is your primary motivation for building a porch, you can feel confident that the money you invest in this project will support your home’s value. Features like these are often highly attractive to prospective buyers.
