2017 NATIONAL CotY Award Winner, Residential Exterior $100,000 to $200,000
The homeowners were not allowed to enlarge their existing screen porch because of a flood plan restriction, yet the space was expanded by removing the outer wall of the porch and adding a pergola, which features operable louvers and automated vinyl and screen wall panels that descend from the beams. The adjustible louvers regulate sun and shade and divert rain to hidden gutters. The wall panels lower to block insects, rain or wind. New infrared heaters were also installed in the porch ceiling and along the pergola beams.
