Screened In Porch
Screened In Porch, The traditional method of screening a porch has pretty much remained the same for a hundred years. That’s unfortunate, because it’s a flawed system. Small tacks or staples are used to attach the screening to the porch posts and railings. Then, narrow wood battens are nailed up to conceal all of the seams and fasteners.
When it’s necessary to replace a damaged screen or fix a sagging one, you must remove several battens and yank out about a million fasteners.
But there is a much better and easier way to install screens, and it doesn’t require a lot of experience. This project will show you how to rescreen an existing porch using the Screen Tight installation system. You can use the same techniques detailed here for new and remodeled porches, deck enclosures, breezeways and gazebos
Screened in porch for all seasons
This porch is built for a family that wanted Arts and Crafts style, space for a budding family, and a raised deck in back for relaxing on lazy afternoons. But the deck got so much sun that they couldn’t use it. Instead they commissioned a screened in porch in its footprint.
The new porch, which is accessed via the family room, overlooks nearby treetops and offers the family a place to unwind. French doors lead to a small deck for grilling in a screened in porch.
