Screen Rooms


Installing a screen room either beneath your deck or adjacent to your home is a smart way to increase your indoor and outdoor living space. In addition to this, a quality screen room that's installed with precision can add to the overall beauty and value of your property. To reap the full benefits of your screen enclosure, though, you need to take measures to ensure that your contractor is utilizing the best materials possible. For the construction of screen room framing, aluminum is the best choice.

Choose Aluminum for Your Screen Room

Although vinyl and steel are other options for framing your screen room, you really shouldn't even consider them. In terms of strength, durability, longevity, and appearance, aluminum outranks other materials every time. First of all, a solid aluminum frame is extremely rigid and durable, making it possible for the screen room to last for a lifetime. Although strong, without protective coatings, steal will be subject to rust. Vinyl, on the other hand, tends to be extremely flimsy.While aluminum is lightweight, it is still very strong and is highly resistant to extreme temperature changes.

This is largely due to the fact that vinyl tends to expand and contract as the temperatures fluctuate. Over the passage of time, this can lead to cracking and gaps which will ultimately lead to leaks. Conversely, aluminum is watertight.

Aluminum is ideal for transforming your screen room into a thing of beauty, and into your own personal oasis. You can choose from various color options when selecting the aluminum that will frame your screen room. When it comes to other materials like steel or vinyl, though, you may find that they are only available in a very limited color set. Another bonus of aluminum is that the colors are baked on instead of painted, which enables you to rest assured that your aluminum won't fade and turn the enclosure into an eye sore. This reduces the amount of maintenance and cleaning that is needed. In addition to this, the strength of aluminum makes it possible for your screen room's roof to support fans, lights, and other accessories.

You deserve the luxury of a quality screen room. By choosing aluminum framing, you can get the most out of yours.


Custom-built screen rooms are one of the smartest and simplest solutions for homeowners looking to maximize their home's space and value. These structures bring versatility to your property, and, through careful design and construction, can be tailored-fitted to your specific needs and desires.

Custom-Built Screen Room Benefits

  • More space - Whether you're installing a screen room beneath an existing deck or are having a structure designed and built entirely from scratch, you'll enjoy a whole new addition to your home without losing much, if any of your property's area.
  • Reduced maintenance - Unlike outdoor patios, screen rooms are extremely low maintenance, as you will not be required to remove leaves and other debris or worry about the harsh impact of the weather on your furniture.
  • Increased safety - The little ones can get some fresh air within the safety of a screened-in structure so that you don't have to worry about their safety. Screen rooms also offer protection to you and your loved ones against harmful UV rays from the sun.
  • Weather-proof - Regardless of whether the sun is shining or the rain is falling, you can still make use of your screen room to enjoy the beautiful world outdoors.
  • Improved comfort & cleanliness - Few things are more annoying than bugs flying around your ears while you're trying to read a good book, or finding that your hot tub is (once again) full of leaves. Installing a custom-built screen room can eliminate these problems so that you can spend more time enjoying your space.

Modular Screen Rooms Turn Dreams Into Reality

Many of us dream about being able to add extra space onto our homes through the installation of a screen room enclosure. Unfortunately, some homeowners make the mistake of believing that this is an unattainable goal. Perhaps they are uncertain about the costs involved with such an undertaking, or worry that the time involved with constructing the room will disrupt their lifestyle. Whatever their concerns may be, they are holding these individuals back from the screen room of their dreams. With modular screen rooms, though, all of these doubts can be pushed aside.

The modular construction of screen rooms has taken the nation by storm. With modular construction, all materials are pre-manufactured, delivered to your home, and installed directly by your contractor. By simplifying the process, costs are reduced, variables are removed, and the amount of time to construct the screen room is lessened. This reduces any intrusion to your lifestyle, while still offering high quality and flexibility in the construction of your modular screen enclosure.

Benefits of Modular Screen Rooms

In addition to a faster, more precise installation, modular screen rooms can benefit homeowners in many ways.

  • Customization - Your modular screen enclosure will be custom made to either fit under your deck, into your porch, or designed and constructed from the ground up. You'll enjoy color options to ensure that your screen room matches with the style of your home and looks great.
  • Low-Maintenance - The aluminum used to construct your modular screen room will not fade, rust, sag or melt, and colors are baked on. This ensures you won't need to re-paint your enclosure or replace any structural elements.
  • Longevity and Durability - Each modular screen room is built with durable materials that are designed to last a lifetime.
