Experts agree that climate change is altering the environment in ways that increase the potential for mosquito-borne diseases like the West Nile virus and the Zika virus. Wouldn’t it be nice if a new part of your home could not only bring high quality and high value, but also bring peace of mind for your health? Screen rooms allow you to enjoy plenty of fresh air, but block out leaves, debris, and — most importantly — insects.
What screen rooms are made of
Screen rooms are metal framed and enclosed with material that won’t crease or dent, making them a great option for an outdoor extension of the home. A White Aluminum Windows screen room features an extended aluminum post and the beam frames have a baked-on enamel. The entire package is completed with mesh fiberglass screening.
Screen rooms not only extend the living space, but are virtually maintenance-free, add a visual appeal, and offer protection from whatever elements Mother Nature has planned.
Screen rooms keep insects at bay
Do you have potted plants on your patio? Such containers can be a perfect place for insects to gather and potentially breed. In that scenario, the bugs can go unbothered and make life miserable. In some places, there’s also not enough deep cold to keep the bug population in check.
Of course, the best way to avoid disease from bug bites is to avoid being bitten. Screen rooms provide a perfect bug barrier and are easy to maintain. Simply vacuum the corners and edges of the enclosure, and use a hose to spray the screen for any bugs and debris that might get caught.
If you enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors, consider all the benefits screen rooms have to offer.
