A client in Fort Myers hired us to screen-in their under-truss lanai this week.

Most of the under-truss lanais of homeowners in Florida are built without screens. So our client asked us to get the job done so they can get a new space in their home that is insect-free. It also serves as a transition space to prevent bugs from entering homes and pets from escaping.

We used Superscreen 14/16 mesh which is great for large openings and can withstand the wind pressure without tearing. It’s 3x stronger than the standard screen and it doesn’t have cross members to maximize the view.

Now that bugs won’t be able to invade their space, our client can lounge in it or eat outdoors while enjoying the fresh air and view.
