Are there bugs in your under truss lanai area? We can keep them out by screening in your outdoor space! Check out this under truss lanai screen enclosure we installed for a client in Punta Gorda.

Mr. and Ms. Shires wanted to enjoy their outdoor area but pesky insects kept ruining the space. So they called us to screen-in their under truss lanai. First, we installed a white frame and two 42″x80″ doors. Next, we screened it in with Standard Phifer 18/14. This mesh can withstand strong thunderstorm force winds for some times over 10 years. All screens are durable when it’s newly installed, but this mesh will only be easily tearable from a regular storm after 7 to 15 years.

It took us one day to complete this project. Our client is happy that their outdoor area is finally bug-free! They can now enjoy this space without worrying about pesky insects getting inside.
