TYPES OF SCREEN ENCLOSURES:
There are several types of screen enclosures you may choose from to enhance your home and enjoy the indoors.
TYPE 1: SCREEN ROOMS- A screen room will usually have a solid roof.
Typically a screen room is constructed in 1-3 days and will require a permit. Most screen roomss will have an insulated composite roof which is not only energy efficient but also very strong. For a less expensive screen room, an uninsulated roof can be chosen. There is no right or wrong answer as to roof choice, let budget be your guide when picking the roof for your new screen room.
Your screen room will of course have screen and usually have a "kickplate" at the base. Most screen room kickplates are made of aluminum to match the screen room color. An added upgrade for your screen room would be either siding, stucco, or brick. These options allow you to more seamlessly join your screen room to your home.
Concrete or wood decks are the most common support for your new screen room. We can build any deck or patio to accommodate the size and shape of your new screen room.
screen room syles can be either sloped or gabled for roof design.
TYPE 2: POOL ENCLOSURE OR SCREEN ROOF ENCLOSURE
A pool enclosure
can be installed over an inground or above ground pool. These screen enclosures typically have a screened roof but can have see-thru products such as lexan installed for added protection.
Pool enclosures and screen enclosures come in several roof designs. The most common roof styes for pool enclosures and screen roof enclosures are a gable, which is peaked or a mansard, which has a flat plateau on top. When choosing the roof design, take into account the amount of leaves that may land on the new pool enclosure or screen enclosure roof.
Most pool enclosures and screen roof enclosures have screen to the floor with a horizontal chair-rail at approx. 36" up from the screen wall base.
Although a solid base is uncommon for a pool enclosure, many screen roof enclosures do have either brick or stucco at the base.
pool enclosures and screen roof enclosures are very strong and, if built properly, will withstand very high winds.
Structural gutters are standard on all North Florida Leisure pool enclosures and screen roof enclosures.
TYPE 3: GLASS ROOM OR SUNROOM
A sunroom is a great addition to your home and your sunroom
will provide an awesome area for kids to play and to entertain guests. Because the sunroom
is enclosed, you now can control your patio
environment more than you can with just a screen room
Glass rooms and sunrooms will have the same insulated roof as our screen roomss. Availabe in the same styles. This is important in case you want to convert your existing screen room into a sunroom.
sunrooms will have either glass or vinyl windows. These sunroom windows will typically slide to allow for your sunroom to function as a screen room when desired. Screens are standard on all sunrooms.
The base of your sunroom or glass room can be made of several products just like a screen room. Siding, brick, or stucco are just a few options for your sunroom.
The support of your sunroom is more substantial than that of a screen room. Most sunrooms will rest on a concrete slab with support footing.
Electrical is standard for all our sunrooms. This work is always performed by a licensed electrian.
sunrooms require a permit just like a screen room or pool enclosure.
TYPE 4: PATIO COVERS AND PERGOLAS
cover or pergola can be a great choice for your patio
covers will provide protection from both the sun and rain while a pergola is for shade only.
A patio cover has the same roof options as a screen room and can have ceiling fan if desired. Just like a screen room, gutters are standard.
The main difference between a screen room and patio cover is that a patio cover is open and therefore does not have screen. Many people will start with a patio cover with the intention of converting it into a screen room or sunroom in the future.
patio covers are also used for carports and boat covers. Concrete patios or concrete driveways are preferable but not required. The posts for your new patio cover can be installed in the ground so no foundation is needed.
When you convert your patio cover in the future, a foundation can be added to accomadate the screen room or sunroom you choose.
A pergola is a very popular choice for homeowners looking for shade with an architectural flair. Pergolas can be installed virtually anywhere and a foundation is not required. Pergolas are offered in many styles and colors. Many of our clients will choose a screen room
cover and use the pergola enhancement purposes.
Your new pergola has posts which are available in many sizes and styles.
Some common areas for a pergola are patios, garden areas, and pool areas.
For those that have a screen room
, a great addition can be to add windows to your existing screen enclosure. Windows are available in glass or vinyl glazing. These windows are color matched to your existing screen room
enclosure. This is great economical way to change that screen room
into an enclosed sunroom
All our screen roomss, sunrooms, pool enclosuress, and patio covers come with excellent warranties to provide for a worry free investment..
