Screened Room

A screened-in room is an enclosed deck area with screened windows and frames. They typically are attached to your home’s foundation and can be built from scratch or an existing structure like a porch or deck. Their screens are made from a mesh material, which can be anything from fiberglass to stainless steel.


It all began with the original SCREENEZE® System in 2003. SCREENEZE® came to fruition over the frustration with traditional methods. There had to be a better way than staples and spline. That way was SCREENEZE®. It is a no-spline, self-stretching system that allows for large panels and easy repair. The base secures to the post/column and the cap, when pressed on, secures and stretches the screen fabric.

But if you are not properly maintaining the deck or you have adverse weather in your area, your deck may need repairs sooner rather than later.
