When it comes to choosing a screen enclosure material, we all look for a couple of characteristics, which include:
These three characteristics make sure that you enjoy your pool time without any worries!
The three most common screen enclosure materials are fiberglass, polyester and aluminum. Amongst these, the most popular one is fiberglass, then polyester and finally, aluminum. Some people might object to this order so, before you make your decision, have a look at the advantages and disadvantages these materials offer:
Fiberglass might hog all the glory when it comes to screen enclosure, but the material is not superior to polyester and aluminum. All screens keep bugs and rodents away, but each enclosure material offers something different.
If you have a look at the advantages of polyester, you will find that it is one of the strongest screen enclosure materials. It is superior to fiberglass and aluminum. Polyester doesn’t have much competition. Currently, Tuff Screen, Ultrascreen, PET Screen and SuperScreen all offer pretty strong polyester screen enclosures. Apart from making sure that you feel safe inside the enclosure, they have also come up with a solution to prevent pets from destroying the screen material.
This rugged metal is also a great choice for screen enclosures. However, if you have pets, we would advise against this material. With time, the dents on the screen start to show, which makes the enclosure look very unappealing.
So, there you go — three different types of screen enclosure materials, each offering something different. When you are choosing the material, keep in mind the area you live in and the weather conditions there.
