Screened Porches Richmond Va

LHC Services - Screened Porches

Screened porches are a great way to enjoy the ‘Goldilocks’ weather in the Richmond, Virginia area. For most of the year, it’s not too hot or too cold, making outdoor entertaining and activities a big part of daily life.

A moderate climate without long-term deep freezes, however, means our region can become bug-filled beginning in spring through early winter. How do you make the most of the beautiful Virginia weather without having to do battle with insects? A screened porch from LHC Services!

A room for entertaining You can bring the barbecue under cover while still savoring the warm breezes of a summer night.


Added value for your home Improve the ‘curb appeal’ of your home with an attractive screened porch and increase the square footage for potential buyers.

Great for Rainy Days

Some Screened Porch Options and Materials

• Modified Wood: Made from sustainably sourced softwoods with a non-toxic liquid injected into it the density of this wood is as durable as a tropical hardwood.
Composite Material: Made primarily from recycled plastic, wood chips, or sawdust, composites aren’t appropriate to build the structure of your porch but can be used for railings and flooring.
Durable, low-maintenance framing for your porch is important, but the screening we use is equally vital to making sure your porch has proper ventilation and visibility. Options for your porch screens include:
Fiberglass: This low-cost option is popular because it is flexible which prevents the creasing that occurs with some metal screens. It’s also reflective to reduce glare and maximize visibility. It does, however, tear more easily than other screen materials. You can get fiberglass screening in several colors: silver grey, charcoal or black.

Pet Screening: Made from vinyl coated polyester, pet screens can be seven times stronger than metal screens. You’ll have less visibility, however, so we recommend installing pet screening along the lower portion of your porch below a railing or mid-point. Pet screening is more expensive than other materials but may be worth the price to avoid replacing traditional screening.
