Types of Screened Porches

We offer New Orleans screened-in back porches as well as screened-in front porches that will fit your wants and needs, no matter what they might be.

Aluminum Porch Screens

Aluminum screen porches tend to be lighter and somewhat more practical than other materials.

The lightweight nature is what makes them easy when it comes to installation and upkeep.

It’s easy to bend the material so it perfectly conforms to the look and feel of the surrounding home. It’s also easier to cut aluminum using a variety of hand tools when compared to other materials.

Our aluminum screens also come in a variety of colors for you to choose from, including black, white, charcoal, silver, and more.

Although it is not as outright durable as steel, aluminum porch screens are not only dependable but come in at a very low cost.

Stainless Steel Porch Screens

The high level of resilience when it comes to stainless steel makes them incredibly popular.

Steel porch screens are not easily damaged by the elements or even when they are hit. The screens also hardly break or warp.

Stainless steel also offers exceptional resistance to rust and corrosion. This makes it an ideal choice for those who live near marine settings where there is a lot of contact with salt, water, and heat.

These screens are also favorable since they don’t need much maintenance.

Steel screen porches are also very durable due to the inherent properties of the material. Once we install them, these screens will stay looking great for years.

Steel screen porch screens are also fairly affordable compared to other screen materials on the market.

Brass Porch Screens

The attractive yellow-gold color of brass screens appeals to many around NOLA, and for good reason.

Not only are they strikingly attractive, but these screens also come with high levels of tensile strength.

They are among the most durable though they can be somewhat difficult to work with considering the stiffness of the material. But it can take a little more effort to install and maintain.

The limitation of brass porch screens is the eventual color changes caused by our region’s harsh elements.

That means periodic maintenance is absolutely necessary, and it could be required more often than with other material options.

These screens are priced at roughly the same as copper, though they do have a longer lifespan.

Copper Porch Screens

The malleable nature of copper means these screens are the easiest to install. It is possible to bend and even cut the screen according to design specifications.

The material also has minimal spring back, and that allows for an easier time during the installation.

Like brass screens, copper screens can also undergo a natural change in color from time to time.

However, it enhances the beauty of the screen that adds to the unique nature of the screens.
Copper screens can also be available in different colors that can blend well with your décor.

Fiberglass Porch Screens

Fiberglass is a diverse material that can be used in a variety of screen porch applications.

While fiberglass is traditionally known to be somewhat delicate, when used for screen porches it can also be coated with vinyl for extra protection.

One of the biggest advantages of fiberglass screens is that they don’t require much maintenance.

They also don’t stain, rust, rot, scratch, or catch fire.

This means fiberglass screens offer particularly high levels of functionality.

It is easy to use different colors for fiberglass porch screens, and these allow you to more easily achieve a specific color scheme for your home.

Likewise, fiberglass screens tend to be one of the more affordable materials available.

Screened-In Porch Cost and Installation in New Orleans LA

In New Orleans, screen porches start with the requisite framework, which Big Easy Landscaping will first clear with you.

  • We then position the screening mesh to ensure it is at the correct angles to the home’s framing.
  • The stretching of the screen should be as taught as possible, beginning at the center top and working its way outward. The screen is attached with staples every 2 inches or installed via prebuilt screens.
  • Once the screen is secure in place, galvanized nails can be used to cover the stapled framing. Attaching screens using this method is a fast and straightforward job, though the results are permanent, reliable, and offer additional utility to your home.

For some, it may be a better choice to add removable screens.

These require especially precise measuring and additional care while building the screens. In the long run, though, removable screens can be a practical solution for families and those who entertain often.

Being able to remove your screens also means they’re easier to care for and clean when needed.

Advantages of Porch Screens

Screen porches offer a number of advantages while keeping everything you love about over open-air porches.

  • While you can see through the screens, they still offer a good level of privacy between your home and your neighbors.
  • Likewise, if you are looking to improve the street-facing front porch, the mesh screen will give you a barrier that protects you from curious passersby – one would have to stop and stare intently before they could tell what’s happening behind the screen.
  • Screened porches protect furniture and other belongings from the snow or heavy rain.
  • They shield from strong wind, which can make the outdoors intolerable in the area.
  • In summer, the addition of a ceiling fan can make space a unique retreat from the heat.
  • Screen porches extend your usable living space.
