Screened in Porch Kits

If you have been considering a screened in porch, kits may not have been the first thing to come to mind. Most people are under the impression that the only way to add on to a home is by hiring a contractor. The truth is you can quickly, easily and most importantly cheaply construct a porch with any of several handy kits.


If you are not interested in doing a lot of measuring, cutting and constructing you can purchase kits that are all prefabricated. You determine your square footage, order the appropriate kit and spend an afternoon installing premade porch screen panels. This is a good option when you have a fairly standard porch you are screening, not so much if you have an odd roofline or other unique construction issue.

Kit Options

Along with a variety of kit construction types, you also have options in materials. Do you want removable screen panels? Screens that will reduce sun fade of your patio furniture? Or even screens that will reduce heat transfer! Kits come in a variety to suit almost any need, some of them are specially designed to keep out bugs, all of them!

Screened in or Sun Room

A heated debate continues to rage between homeowners about which of these options is the best. Screened in porches are more economical to construct but a sunroom will allow you to keep a virtual tropical paradise! If you are on the fence about which of these options you should choose, perhaps you can have the best of both worlds. It is possible to add glass panels for colder winter months and store them away in the spring and summer!
