Design Tips

When designing your screened-in porch it is a good idea to sit in the space you are going to build it, that way you can really decide how high you want the railings or supports for the screens before the swinging of hammers start. There is nothing worse than building a great screened-in porch that when you sit down you can’t see the lake, or view behind the wall. If you like to spend nights out on your porch and you enjoy stargazing, think about your roof too adding some sky lights or opening can make a huge difference.
