One of the best parts of living in Northeast Florida is enjoying the perfect weather from your screened patio or pool enclosure.  The right screens cut down on the sun’s rays, keep the bugs and debris out, keep the pets in, provide privacy, and more.  There are four types of screen that every Florida homeowner needs to know about in order to take full advantage of the year-round outdoor living that comes with living in our region:   

  • 18/14 - 18/14 screen is the standard weave used for screen doors, window screens, and along the sides of enclosures.  The numbers refer to the density of the screen mesh, and 18/14 provides the strength and durability needed to withstand the elements, while still letting the breeze blow through freely through your open windows or lanai.
  • 20/20 - 20/20 screen is so tightly-woven that it can even keep no-see-ums and other tiny insects at bay, but will still allow plenty of ventilation and fresh air into your enclosure.  
  • TuffScreen - TuffScreen is specialty screen material that holds up especially well to tears and punctures, and comes with a 10-year warranty, so you know you’ll be enjoying it for years to come.  TuffScreen is perfect for families with young children, and also provides added protection against rips and tears if you have trees and other vegetation close to your home and enclosure.  
  • Pet screen - Our pets like to enjoy the outdoors too, but their excitement coupled with their claws can spell disaster for screened enclosures and screen doors.  Specialty pet screen can stand up to pet’s paws and claws while still allowing the privacy and protection from bugs and debris that we want.
