Are screen enclosures with Panoramic screen walls as strong as the traditional screen enclosures?
Absolutely! They are engineered and built to the same stringent building codes, so you don't have to worry about sacrificing strength for beautiful aesthetics.
What is the projected timeline on new construction?
Generally, you can expect to see the build start within 30 days after paperwork and 10% deposit is collected (sooner if permit isn't required). There is more to it than just building the enclosure. First step is to order engineered drawings for your specific enclosure. Once the drawings are back, we submit the permit to be processed. After the permit is issued, we are than ready to build. Installation time averages about a week, but can range from a day to 2 weeks or more with larger scale projects. Discussing the timeline for your project is a key part of the consultation process, as several factors can affect the timeline, including the contractor’s current workload, permitting for the project, and weather conditions. Depending on time of year, weather may be a major factor. Discussing timeline requirements will help you decide which enclosure company to hire.
