How much do BetterVue Screenrooms cost?

 

Enclosing an existing porch with 20x20 BetterVue screens, generally ranges in cost from $3500 - $10k +

Screenroom additions (adding a room from scratch) can vary much more broadly but in general, will be approx 3x-5x the cost of enclosing an existing room

 

Every room we install is a custom project and requires an on-site design consultation to estimate accurately

Do I need a permit?

 

Not typically.

 

Screen enclosures generally do not require a general building and electrical permit, as per local county building codes

How long does an install take to complete?

 

While your individual Designer and Superintendent will estimate a project timeline specific to your project, most screen enclosures are completed within 1-3 days (depending on county inspections, weather, suppliers, etc)

Screenroom additions (adding a roof instead of enclosing an existing porch) typically triple time on site

Stage 2
Screen Installation

Congratulations!

Our Porch Conversion Installation crew will typically arrive on site between 8am - 11am (depending on specific project requirements) for the first day of Install

 

The team will remove any unnecessary existing framework/windows from your porch and replace with new, custom, powder-coated, aluminum framework

The first step of which will be to install framework around the perimeter of the room (top, bottom, sides) 

After the openings are framed out, your BetterVue Screen can be installed

Each section of screen is hand-rolled into our custom framework on site

Your Dreamroom is complete!

Sit back with that cup of coffee or invite the neighbors over and show off your new space!
