Does a screen enclosure bring value to your home?

When adding a screen enclosure to a home with Miller’s Screen, we are asked by plenty of homeowners if the addition will add value to their home. Most of the time, homeowners mean monetary value when speaking about adding value. However, screen enclosures do provide a lot more value to a home than monetarily speaking.

In the appraised square footage of a home, screen enclosures are not included in these measurements, but they add livable square footage to your home. We see TVs on screened porches more frequently, with outdoor fireplaces, kitchens, and wet bars, making screen rooms and enclosures have many versatile uses. The more amenities a screened porch includes, the more use homeowners can get out of it, bringing more value to your home.

Adding an outdoor living space, which is open, yet protected from the elements and insects, can add tremendous value by allowing homeowners and their guests to get closer to nature. When connecting with nature, people tend to relax, making your screen enclosure a welcoming addition to the home. Just be sure to consider any regional concerns when adding the addition to your home. For example, the weave on screens must be tight enough for bugs to not enter through the screen, and the floorboards must also actively stop bugs and critters from getting in.

Homeowners can also see a return on investment when adding a screened-in porch. When looking to cash in on your ROI for your screen enclosure, homeowners should research the neighborhood comps (or comparable standards) to ensure their enclosure adds maximum resale value if they sell their home.
