Preparation Steps

Before a screened-in deck can be installed, some preparation steps must be completed. The deck needs to be in good condition to support a roof and screens, so an inspection is recommended to determine if the support structure requires repair or reinforcement. Damaged or rotting planks may also need to be repaired or replaced before the project can proceed.

Cost Factors for Screening In a Deck

Many factors can influence the cost of this project. Whether homeowners build a new deck or work with an existing one, materials and tools can be expensive. The size of the deck is a major factor, and homeowners can expect to pay more for larger ones. Expanding the deck, or making repairs to the existing one, may also increase the price. Homeowners who want to have lights, ceiling fans or outlets may need to have the space wired by an electrician.

How a Professional Can Help

The screen panels and roof must be carefully installed to keep insects out. Other insect entry points, such as the spaces between the deck boards, must also be considered. The structure must comply with local building codes, which is especially crucial if electric elements are involved. Homeowners are advised to get help from a professional to ensure the screened-in deck is both safe and insect-proof.
