Frequently Asked Questions


Screen enclosures keep insects, pests, and dead leaves out of your outdoor living space. Screen enclosures, even those with only screen roofing, can protect people inside from direct sunlight exposure. And, the screen enclosure adds extra space for entertaining guests and gathering as a family.

It keeps bugs and debris away from your pool. This makes it easier to maintain and clean your pool since it does not get dirty as much. And, it also keeps unattended pets and children away from the pool when they shouldn’t be there.

There are a variety of choices that you can make in designing the sunroom or screen enclosure you want for your home. With these, you will have no problems finding the one that suits the architectural style of your home. We can provide you with a computer-generated render of your design choices so you know what you will get even before we start construction. In this way, you can make any changes you want for your enclosure.

An enclosure doesn't need to be connected to the house. We can design it for you as a separate standalone structure in your backyard.

For our attached enclosures, we use similar roof styles, pitches, and treatments for the enclosure to blend seamlessly with the rest of the house.

For standalone enclosures, we can help you choose designs and materials that will suit or complement the architecture of your home. Our designers can provide a 3D render of the design so you can visualize how it will look and make changes for anything that you wish to adjust.

There is no such thing. If you can see them from inside and there’s equal lighting inside and outside your enclosure, they can see you too.

Good quality fiberglass screens can last around 7 to 10 years. But, this will still vary depending on the care done by the homeowner and its exposure to the elements. You can expect well-maintained screens and those shaded from the sun to last longer than those that are not.

Polycarbonate sheets are expected to last for up to 15 years. It is expected that the sheets will maintain their physical and chemical integrity for this duration.

These are expected to last up to 15 years. But, with proper maintenance, the structural components of screen enclosures can last up to 25 years.

We will take care of this for you. You should never be the one to pull the permit since this will transfer the liabilities for the duration of the installation to you instead of the contractor.

It depends on the size and complexity of the enclosure. On average, total build time can take around two to four weeks. But, most of the turnaround time is spent on fabrication which is done off-site.

The structure of the screen enclosure is not in any danger from strong winds. As for the screen, these can tear from their attachments or result in rips in the middle due to hurricane winds or flying debris.

For regular cleaning, you only need to rinse your screens with water using a garden hose. For removing dirt and algae, the best way is to gently scrub the screens with a soft-bristled brush soaked in a solution of equal parts vinegar and water or 2 oz. of dish soap and a gallon of water. Avoid using a pressure washer as these can break the screens of your enclosure. 

The common approach is to install Florida glass at the bottom of the enclosure. This is an opaque solid panel that will act as a barrier that prevents dirt from getting in. You can also install solid aluminum panels, known as a kick plate, at the bottom portion of the enclosure.

This becomes a necessity when the original installer of your screen enclosure used a single sheet of mesh screen for all 5 of your panels. You will not notice this from inside the enclosure. But, you can easily see this from the top and we will tell you when we notice this on your screen enclosure. This is one way installers cheat their customers and save on time and money.

It looks silver because of the fiberglass showing through. When it starts showing through, the vinyl of your screens has worn down. This indicates that the screen has reached the end of its life expectancy. 

When your screen starts showing tears on the edge and noticeable corrosion on the surface, your screens are due for a replacement.

There are a lot of possible causes for this. It could be due to loose hinges, doorframe, or trim. It could be that the door’s wooden frame expanded due to exposure to weather over time. It could be that the door closer requires an adjustment or replacement. It could be the latch needs to be repositioned.

Yes, we do. The warranty duration would depend on the product and enclosure installed. And, there will be terms for this warranty as specified in the warranty contract that we provide to our customers. Call us for more specific details of our warranty coverage.

It depends on how the sunroom will look in your home. A well-designed sunroom can increase by more than what you invested for its installation.
