Unfortunately, many homes in Florida lack screening on their patio, so homeowners cannot fully take advantage of the patio space unless they want to be feasted on by pesky insects.

The best solution to this problem would be to screen it using an ‘Undertruss Patio Screen–In, ’ since it is under the truss roof of the home. Meaning, our team framed it under the truss (and removed the old ones).

To make the screen room look more appealing, we also added Superscreen to keep the bugs out. This material keeps annoying bugs like flies and mosquitos out of your screen enclosure. Then, a basic screen door is installed for access and now their patio is bug-free! Additionally, the new screen offers a better view of the outdoors and makes the lounge room look bigger and brighter.

The result is a beautiful outdoor living area you and the rest of your family can enjoy. Easily turn an ordinary outdoor space into a comfortable and valuable open-air living room where you can check off many things simultaneously:

  • Lounge around
  • Enjoy a cup of coffee/tea
  • Have some quiet “me” time
  • Read a book while getting  your daily dose of Vitamin D 

All without worrying about bugs, insects, and pests! Undertruss patio screen-ins usually don't need a permit (it would still be best to do your own research, though, because some places do), and they can usually be done in one day.

So if you’re planning to do one for your next home improvement project, contact our team of experts at Gulf Coast Aluminum today. (Related: New Screen Wall Under-Truss for Home in Naples)
