When you live in Florida, it’s a given that you want to enjoy spending time outdoors in your screen enclosed patio or pool deck. There are just so many advantages to having an aluminum screen patio or porch enclosure! A quality screen enclosure provides protection for you and your home from intense rays of sun, insects and offers a comfortable place to relax with family and pets.
One of the more frequent services we handle this time of year are to rescreen and repair patio and pool enclosures. Since many screen room enclosures have been custom designed to complement your home, the solution to revitalize your screen enclosure depends on many factors.
Take for example, we recently received a call from a customer because her comfortable screened-in patio was starting to look worn out and torn in some areas. We all love our pets and consider them members of our family. However when they destroy our home or belongings it can be both frustrating and unsightly. Specifically, her cats had ripped parts of the screen when they were reaching for lizards or squirrels that ran across the outside of the screen. She didn’t like the way the rips and tears looked plus there’s the concern of unwanted pests.
Living in Florida, we all know a few things for certain, there will always be critters that will run across those screens, plus mosquitos and flies will find their way inside to the patio AND it will reduce the enjoyment of spending time out on that comfortable patio in the cool mornings and evenings.
Repair or Rescreen The Patio Enclosure?
In situations like this, one of the first questions many homeowners ask, “Can it simply be repaired or do I need to rescreen the patio (or porch)?” That’s a great question and it really depends on
- the extent and area of the damage
- the overall age and condition of the screen
- the integrity of the aluminum or metal patio enclosure structure.
The easiest and best way to determine whether it’s time for a repair or a rescreen of the patio or pool enclosure is by contacting us to come to your home for a FREE in-home consultation. Our screen enclosure specialists can help you find the perfect solution for your needs and budget so you can focus on relaxing instead of keeping a constant eye on those unsightly rips and worrying about the incoming insects and pests.
