Our outdoor rooms accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative aspects of outdoor living

Enjoy your outdoors with Archadeck Outdoor LivingHaving the freedom to enjoy the outdoors without worry is an important aspect of leisure and recreational time. Being able to mingle and relax in your own backyard adds enjoyment to time spent with family and friends. In this day and age there are many outside influences that can impact the time we spend outside. At the top of the list is undoubtedly insects. Not only are insects a nuisance they can also be quite dangerous — hence the mosquito and the many illnesses it is capable of passing onto us!

MosquitoHere in Ohio reports of the mosquito-borne illness, West Nile Virus, have already begun to pour in. The Ohio Department of Health reports one of the first two confirmed reported cases of the season came from Hamilton County OH, near Cincinnati, just a few weeks ago. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of late August nine cases in total have been confirmed in Ohio thus far. West Nile Virus is capable of making you, or a member of your family, very sick and can even be fatal — proof that protecting yourself and your loved ones from coming into contact with a mosquito is important.

Along with proactive property management and having your property treated by a mosquito control professional, it is also important to consider the way you and your family want to live outdoors in correlation with additional protection offered through your outdoor living space. For example, decks offer minimal protection from insects and outside influences, while protected outdoor rooms such as screened porches, three & four season rooms and sunrooms, can deliver the same enjoyment with a layer of protection against outside influences. We aren’t implying that having an outdoor room will totally eliminate the risk of contracting a mosquito-borne illness, but having a space in conjunction with your backyard deck or patio that offers a barrier of protection so mosquitoes are less likely to enter and bite certainly won’t hurt! Our outdoor rooms accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative aspects of outdoor living — because when it comes to mosquitoes, it is you against the world!


Recent sunroom addition by Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio.

In addition to providing solace from dangerous insects, screened porches, sunrooms and three and four season rooms also guard against inclement weather, backyard debris and pollen and even extend the period you can enjoy the outdoors. Here is a summary of the outdoor room additions we specialize in helping you make the most of your backyard:

  • The Screened Porch – Giving you all the benefits of a covered porch plus one additional big benefit…protection from bugs! Keeping the bugs at bay will enable you to enjoy your porch late into the night without worry of being outside at the same time as mosquitoes.
  • Dayton Screened porch and deck builderThe Three-season room – Beefier than your average screened porch, a three season room addition is a good option for homeowners who want to enjoy outdoor living in style but don’t need the living space available all year long. For the windows, we use single-pane glass windows or the SCREENEZE porch enclosure system (the best of both worlds, screen when you want it, or a more enclosed “windowed” room when you want it too) for unfettered use of the space in spring, summer and fall.
  • The Sunroom – Sometimes referred to as four season room, all-season or year round room, this option is integrated into the construction of your home, existing roof line and exterior. For ultimate convenience, protection and climate control, we install insulated glass windows and insulation in the roof, floors and walls, for use of the room year-round.
