Screen Rooms

Our most popular option! Screened areas let you enjoy the weather but they keep the bugs and debris out. You can relax in the warmth without worrying about outside elements affecting your enjoyment.

Three Season

Three season rooms can be used in the spring, summer, and fall. They are enclosed by glass windows which allow you to soak up the sun without worrying about the temperature outside.

Four Season

If you’re looking for a sunroom that can withstand all seasons, this is the option for you. These rooms include insulated windows and doors, keeping the heat in during the winter months.

Choosing a Screen Material

Today, screens serve more functions than just keeping bugs out. Because of that, there are several options when choosing a screen material for your enclosure.

Sun Control

If your primary objective is to block the sun and prevent your outdoor space from overheating, you may choose to go with a screen option meant to help with sun control. These types of screens balance between letting light in and regulating heat. Our screens can block up to 90% of the sun’s rays.

Pet Resistant

If you have dogs, cats, or small children you’re probably familiar with the fact that they destroy everything in their paths. If this is the case for you, let us know. We can help you select the best screen material for pets and children, one that will hold up well when tested. Some clients choose to install tough screening at the bottom and regular screening on top, which will help optimize visibility.


Most of our screens are made from fiberglass, as it is the most common material used in screens. It helps to prevent glare and it doesn’t crease like metal screening, making it great for screen enclosures. We carry a wide range of colors, opacities, and weaves. If you’d like to learn some more about what we have, we invite you to give us a call!

Light vs. Dark: Which Color Screen is Best?

Many of our customers lean toward choosing light colored screens because they believe it will aid with visibility. However, they are often surprised to hear that the opposite is actually true! In fact, dark colored screens are the ideal choice if you’re hoping for the best visibility. With dark color screens like black, grey, or brown, you will be able to see outside much better than with an ivory, white, or tan color.

Why You Should Enclose Your Patio?

Patios provide a great place for relaxation and socialization but using them can be unappealing in poor conditions. Insects can pester any gathering, and intense sunshine can make the heat unbearable. But you don’t need to hole up indoors and let your patio go to waste. With the installation of a screen patio enclosure, you get many benefits.

Extended Usage For Your Outdoor Space

With a patio enclosure, you don’t have to retreat indoors just because of poor weather. A patio roof can keep away rain and provide overhead shade on sunny days, allowing you to continue to relax outdoors. The addition of a sunscreen can also keep away the heat, letting you get some fresh air in the summer without feeling uncomfortable in higher temperatures.


If you have neighbors nearby, it can be hard to feel like you have any privacy when outdoors. If you want to relax outdoors without worrying about your neighbors, a patio enclosure with screens can restrict an outsider’s view and give you peace. This is especially helpful for front patios, hot tubs, pools, and any patio in a dense neighborhood.

Keeping Insects Out

Mosquitos, gnats, and other bugs can fly into your patio at any time, especially when there’s food involved. While it’s possible to combat insects with repellants, often the smell takes away from a relaxing atmosphere, and the stress of combating insects may make it more appealing to give the outdoors up. With a screen enclosed patio, you can keep even the smallest of insects away from your space.

Extended Space

Smaller homes can end up feeling constricted, but an enclosed patio extends the amount of ready-to-use space. If you need additional space to host guests or hold a party, the enclosed patio becomes a great place for people to expand into and enjoy the outdoors.

Protects Patio Furniture

Patio furniture is resistant to the elements, but that doesn’t make it invincible. Having an enclosed patio protects your furniture from damage and extends its lifespan, so you can get many more years out of your furniture than you would otherwise. The enclosure will also allow for some pieces of furniture to stay outdoors all year round, saving you the hassle of moving pieces into storage.


A young child or toddler can be hard to keep an eye on at times, but an enclosed patio makes it easier to keep them within your sight. Open patios or porches that are higher off the ground can also present a falling hazard to children who can’t tell where not to venture, a risk that’s eliminated with an enclosed structure.

Stay in Touch With the Nature Around You

A screen-enclosed patio provides sun and insect protection while still letting you enjoy the world of nature around your patio. Screens can provide visibility to the outside world without letting others look in. You get the great experience of natural wind and sounds, without having to deal with any bugs. Our skilled team is capable of building patio enclosures and pergolas and can even install screens in any new or existing patio frameworks. If you’re ready to turn your patio into a livable space or want to construct something brand new, we can provide the service you need with the quality you deserve.

Motorized Patio Shades

Want protection for your outdoor space but don’t want to always look through a screen to enjoy your backyard? With Houston motorized patio shades, it’s possible. Whether you want a bug or solar screen, a motorized shade will allow you to switch your screens out with a touch of a button. We have the skills to install and maintain motorized patio shades on any patio with a roof, whether you already have one in place or enlist our installation services to get one.

Motorized patio shades are great for:

  • Screened porches – Letting you decide when’s the time for protection and when you just want to enjoy the view.
  • Garage door screens – Whether you work or hang out in your garage, a motorized shade will help make the space as comfortable as possible.
  • Privacy screens – For when you don’t feel like sharing the view of your outdoor hot tub or an exposed room with the neighbors.
  • Solar screens – Let your shades down when the sun’s shining, then put them away as night falls. Better yet, let a sun sensor make the changes for you.

Whatever your motorized patio needs, we can take care of any installation project. We’ll talk with you about your design needs so that you can decide how you want the motorized screens to fit in with the rest of your décor, and then follow through on your plan to make the best addition to your home.
