Fixed vs. Power Screen Enclosures
Do you have outdoor living space that you’re not using? Perhaps it’s because of the heat. Or maybe you’re not enjoying your patio because of mosquitoes and other pests.
Both Fixed and Power Screen Enclosures can help you keep the pests out and stay comfortable on your patio, porch or deck. So which one is a better fit for you?
Here are the main factors to consider when picking your screen enclosure:
- Your Budget: If you already know you need a solution, but don’t have a big budget, then fixed screen enclosures might be a good solution for you. Fixed screen enclosures will empower you to sit on your back porch or patio again without breaking the bank. While we offer the highest quality in fixed screen enclosures, you might consider the premium solution, power screens. Power screen enclosures are great if you have a larger budget. The good news is that you’ll end up saving money because of lower utility bills no matter which option you choose.
- Your Space: We are able to make custom screen enclosures for any type of space. However, depending on the size of the outdoor living space you want to enclose, one option might be better than the other. The best way to find out would be to simply contact us and start the conversation and figure out the best solution for your space.
- Your Needs: What do you want to do with your outdoor living space? Fixed screens are a great solution for most outdoor living space. However, power screens offer the added flexibility and convenience of being able to open and close your outdoor living space.
