For folks not in the market for a screen enclosure, we offer a variety of options to meet your needs. Sunrooms and screen rooms are a wonderful choice for you to utilize your outdoor space for relaxation and entertainment. These can be left open and used as an outdoor cover from the elements without screen or can be framed in to accept screens or windows. Your roof covering will either be a composite panel sandwiched between metal sheeting (elite roof) or u-shaped panels formed from aluminum (pan roof).
Some of our clients don’t have a screen enclosure over a pool, or a need for one. If you have a back patio area that often goes unused, then we are your source for an enjoyable outdoor area. Using the finest materials, we can build a structure that suits your tastes and needs. You’d be surprised to find out the options available for you to enjoy this space!
This returning client had previously opted for a Pet Screen on the front entryway to withstand his hyper pup actions when people came to the front door. For the back, he chose the Phifer standard 18/14 screen mesh. We enclosed his rear lanai with a 24″ high chair rail to minimize any obstruction to the view. The chair rail not only served this purpose but also added extra strength to the screen walls, a good choice considering the lively nature of his dog.
To enhance accessibility, the client decided on an oversized screen door, measuring 42″ wide. This larger door not only facilitates easy access but also accommodates the potential need to move furniture or other bulky items in and out.
We advise our clients about the practicality of oversizing the screen doors for rear lanais with sliding glass doors. This area typically serves as the primary entry point for larger items, and having an ample-sized door ensures convenience when maneuvering substantial objects. This demonstrates our commitment to providing solutions that not only meet immediate needs but also anticipate future requirements for our clients.

Q: Is a sun room or screen room the right choice for me?
A: Depending on how you plan on using your outdoor area, the two choices offer very different results. If you’re looking to use the space often – no matter the weather – a sunroom with acrypc windows might be your best choice. If you’re looking for a sitting area to read or to hang out in your hot tub when the weather is right, a screen room might be your best option.
Q: What materials do you use to build the roof?
A: Your roof covering will either be engineered for elite panels or aluminum pans. The biggest difference between the two is the durability and strength of elite panels. They are storm rated and very rigid. We would typically use this product when building a room with acrylic windows.
Q: Do I need to worry about permitting?
Yes! If your potential contractor says otherwise, start looking for an alternative. A: These structures are attached to your house and need to be built to engineered standards with state and local codes in mind to withstand hurricane-force winds.
