Screened-in Porches vs Sunrooms

Should you have a screened-in porch built or a sunroom with solid walls and windows?  Taking on any construction project is a big decision, but Tripod Aluminum will try to make it easier for you!

Advantages of a Screened-in Porch


If budget is a concern, then a screened-in porch is definitely the best choice for you. Depending on the type of sunroom you have built, a screened-in porch could easily cost half as much.

Expanded outdoor living space

Particularly in Florida, which has incredible weather most of the year, outdoor living is a big part of our lives. With a screened-in porch, you get to enjoy the beautiful weather while being protected from the sun and insects.

You retain outdoor space

When building a sunroom, you permanently lose that space as part of your backyard. With a screened-in porch, you are simply enhancing a portion of your yard and making it even more useable and enjoyable!

Attractive to future buyers

If you decide to move someday, a potential owner will probably like the screened-in porch, but if they don’t, it is easily removed. A sunroom is a permanent part of the house, so if the prospective buyer doesn’t like it, they may choose to not buy your house.

At Tripod Aluminum, our screened-in porches are made of high-quality aluminum.  Aluminum is strong and rust-resistant making it an excellent material to use in the humid weather in coastal towns, such as Melbourne, Merritt Island, and Vero Beach.

Another fantastic feature of our screened rooms is that our screening blocks out 20 to 40 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays.  This helps protect your skin from rays that can cause skin cancer.  It also helps protect your outdoor furnishings from prematurely fading.

And, when your little one is getting cabin fever during our rainy season, you have a play space available that allows for fresh air while staying dry.  Perhaps, your fur baby likes to lay outside and gets depressed on rainy days…not anymore!  They can hang out in the screened-in room, watching over their domain without that wet dog smell when they come inside.

Very happy with Tripod Aluminum's screen enclosure work. Despite Port Saint Lucie's extra permit needs for our 1984 home, they quickly resumed and finished the project to our great satisfaction.
