New Orleans Porch Enclosures - Enjoy Custom-Made Porch without the Bugs or Rain

A porch is a wonderful place to sit outside with a book on the weekends, host a summer party with friends, or watch the sunset after a long day at work.

If you’re lucky enough to have a home with porches, you’ll no doubt want to enjoy them. That’s why we offer quality New Orleans porch enclosures to help you enjoy your porches without incident.

Unfortunately, bugs and the elements can put a damper on outdoor lounging on the porch, turning an otherwise enjoyable experience into an unbearable situation.

When the rainy and storm season starts, your plans to enjoy the outdoors may all too often cut short by inclement weather.

As a porch enclosure supplier, we’re able to enhance homeowners’ decks, patios and porches by protecting them (and you) from the elements, allowing you to enjoy your porch rain or shine.

What is a porch cover or enclosure?

Deck enclosures, porch enclosures, sunrooms, and other similar structures all share one common theme: they protect you from bugs and weather that might make outdoor activities unpleasant, using barriers such as framed screens, panels, overhead extensions or other structures to enhance the space.

There are a variety of customizable features you can pick from to complete your porch cover.

Some of the options available through Big Easy Iron Works Include the following:

  • Porch covers alone, without walls, which allow the most airflow and shade from the sun
  • Porch cover kits if you’d like to construct a porch cover yourself
  • Screens instead of glass panels, which allow more airflow than glass and keep bugs out
  • Glass panels, which keep both bugs and rain out
  • Windows that open, with or without screens
  • Ceiling fans and overhead lights, to add light and air circulation
  • Sunroom enclosures, which can have a glass ceiling (for light) or a more “shade-friendly” ceiling
  • Front porch options – you don’t have to limit your enclosure to your back porch
  • Brick enclosure accents to match your home (or to complement your home)
  • Screened-in deck add-ons to protect your existing deck area

Sunroom Enclosures

When we reach our rainy season, staying indoors can be discouraging. With a sunroom enclosure, however, you can sit outside and watch the rain fall on the glass – it’s almost therapeutic. You could even do yoga, host a family gathering, or work on a craft project “in the rain.”

For these reasons, many of our clients choose a sunroom installation for their back porch.

Porch Enclosures

A porch enclosure is a slightly different type of enclosure. With a sunroom installation, we will come to your property and build an entirely new structure over an existing porch area (or add a porch area as part of the sunroom).

With a porch enclosure, however, our clients typically have an existing roof over their porch area. We simply come to construct walls that shield our clients from bugs and weather. These can be screens or glass, with accents in different materials to complement your home.

Porch Enclosures New Orleans - Crescent Iron WorksPorch enclosures are best for those hot, humid days where you need shelter from both the sun and the bugs. Shade from your porch cover provides a relief from the sun, while your porch enclosure walls will keep out bugs. They can also provide a cozy atmosphere for hosting outdoor family meals while it rains.

Many of our clients with existing porches choose porch enclosures as a solution to their bug and weather challenges.
