Updating screened in porch

posted by | Leave a comment

For years, we had used indoor outdoor carpet to keep bugs out, but I was done with carpet and wanted real wood.This screening was the best solution to keep bugs at bay.Roberto stapled the screening directly underneath the deck (at left) covering all of the beams.I actually like the way the screen makes the area look; it has a more finished effect than the bare, exposed wood.The photo at right shows the cord before we screwed in the bulbs.

After it dried (over the weekend), Roberto spent several hours scraping away glue and debris that wasn’t removed during the pressure wash. To start, Roberto applied one coat of Behr latex indoor-outdoor primer. The paint rep at Home Depot tinted the primer the same color as the deck paint I had chosen.

After the primer coat dried, Roberto applied two coats of Behr porch and patio paint in “washed khaki.” It is a lovely neutral that dried a tad lighter than the chip color.

I chose this color because it blended well with my window trim.

The lights still work, and we haven’t even had to replace a bulb.

The screening looked great for about 2 years, then it began to collect bugs and dirt.
