How long does a screen enclosure project take?
Several factors will influence the answer to this question, the resources and knowledge of your contractor, the speed of your local building department and how high the current demand for enclosures is. Generally, you can expect you a screen enclosure project with a permit to be completed between 3-9 months from date of signed contract. During building booms, or during hurricances, the process can take longer. Due to the nature of field service work, and third parties (such as engineers, surveyors, and building department) we generally recommend planning for your screen enclosure at least a year in advance. While this might seem like a long wait, there are often many ‘behind the scenes’ processes involving engineering, surveying, and permitting that consume much of the time. Once ground is broken, the projects move rather fast.
How big of a “clearview” can I have?
For readers who might not know, a ‘clearview’ or ‘picture window’ is a opening in the enclosure unobstructed by aluminum members. When you have a nice view, or want to eliminate the ‘cage’ feeling it is a great choice. The largest clearview you can have on your enclosure is actually limited by the largest piece of screen mesh and aluminum member manufactured. As of this publication the a 37’ x 10’ clearview is the largest that can be incorporated into a new enclosure and foundation. Limitations may apply apply when a foundation is already existing, or for high windzone and exposure areas.
