|Screen rooms make a nice addition to any home. There
are several types of options when it comes frame colors,
screen and roof type. These type of rooms start at
around $1,000.00. To give you an idea of pricing a
typical 10'X20' screen room with a pan roof, built on your
slab would be $1,750.00-$1,999.00. This includes all
material, engineering, permits, gutter, 1 door, kickplate,
phifer screen. The price varies as most rooms have 3
walls but as you see in the picture to the right sometimes
they only have 2 walls. Another factor is how we attach
the roof. It's nicer and stronger to attach to the wall.
However you have to have the height to be able to do this.
If you don't have height we can attach to the fascia.
This would be another circumstance that would save money as
the roof would be less square footage billed.

Carports & Patio Covers
||Whether you have a pool or a patio that you need screened
in, we can do it. We buy our aluminum product direct
manufacture. Our enclosure are engineered and build
to withstand Florida's high winds and harsh weather. We
use industry standard 6005 aluminum alloy in of our
|An aluminum pan roof carport is a great way to protect your
vehicle. We also install them in the back of the house
when a nice solid shaded area is needed without screening.
When they're in the back they're called patio covers.
If you want to screen a
patio cover in the future it isn't a problem.
|Vinyl, Acrylic, & Glass
|Windows are an easy and
affordable addition to any screen enclosure. Vinyl are
going to be the cheapest with glass and acrylic being most
expensive. With glass there is more criteria to meet
when it comes to permitting.
|A screen insert is basically
when you already have the roof and only need an
opening screened. This is very affordable with an
average 20 linear foot of walls running $500-$600.
The insert below is shown with 16" kickplate and a chair-rail.
|We can rescreen any Garage
Slider, Screen Room, Pool Cage, and most screen doors.
However we are not currently set up to do house window
We only use Phifer screen.
The Florida sun can be rough on screen and Phifer is designed
There's screen out there that's half
the price. However due to the lack of UV protection is
can dry and rip with a couple of years.
|Garage sliders are a quick and
simple way to screen off your garage while still allowing
vehicle access to it.
The size of the aluminum posts and beams and spans of the opening are
determined by current building code and the raised seal
engineering we use for permitting. On a typical screen
room with a solid roof the room would likely be 1" X 3" and 2"
X 3" aluminum construction.
However, you do have
a couple of options. One being color. The aluminum
is available in bronze and white. The kickplate is
available in 16" and 24". Almost every
room has 1 or 2 - 36" X 80" doors. However you could
have a double door allowing a 6 foot opening for taking larger
objects in and out. Something else that's becoming
common is using 2 track sliders. Simular to the 4 track
sliders you might have seen installed on garages. It's a
good option if a larger opening is needed but also because the
doors slide left and right instead of opening out. This
could help avoid objects in the area of the door.
Sometimes the ground rises and an outward swinging door would
hit it. A slider is a good options in akward situations

There are two types of solid roofs shown below.
We could also build a room with a screen roof (refer to
screening option to the right)
- are the least expensive. The
pans are 12" wide and whatever length we need them. They
can span approximatly 12' without a support beam. The
way they lock together requires no sealant at the seams.
It's definetly an atvantage to know the seams will never need
All of our roofs include guttering and downspouts.
Remember with pan roofs you can't walk on them. They
will probably hold you but will bend and leak.
- We use
Elite 3" Insulated Roof Panels. There are a few things
that make them better than a pan roof.
1. 3" of foam insulation keep
the heat down as well as the noise during a rain.
They're also know as a walk-on roof. You can walk on them to
clean out the gutters.
3. You can install a fan or light in them. We can
purchase them with "fan beams" that electrical wires can be
concealed in, and fans fastened to.
only use Phifer screen. They carry a great warranty and
hold up very well to the Florida sun.
Screen - If you imagine a square 1" X 1", there are
18 holes one way and 14 the other.
- imagine the same 1" X 1" square. With 20-20
there are 20 holes each way. More holes in that same
square inch means the holes are smaller. This keeps out
no-seeums and knats that 18-14 screen doesn't
Vinyl-coated polyester makes PetScreen seven times stronger
than traditional insect screening.
Comes in white and charcoil. It's basically does what it
says, creates privacy. White is more private than
charcoil. It seems to reflect light better making it
virtualy impossible to see in. Allot depends on how dark
it is in the room as well. If a garage slider has
privacy screen it's very difficult to see in because of 3
solid walls and a solid roof. That same privacy screen
in a pool cage is less private because 3 sides and the roof
are screen allowing more light inside.
