Aluminum Screen Enclosures: Benefits Of Using Aluminum Vs. Wood

Ready to build a patio or screened porch enclosure? When building aluminum screen enclosures, Dulando Screen and Awning is prepared to create your new living space just the way you want it – with custom design to complement your home, expert workmanship and top quality materials. If you’re going to build on to your home, you want the new addition to function and look its best!

We offer a variety of aluminum screen enclosures from major manufacturers.

By using Aluma-wood, your aluminum screen enclosures will:

  • offer a clean look
  • a lifetime of durability
  • none of the disadvantages of wood like rotting, warping, peeling, burning or cracking.

Top quality aluminum construction keeps your patio or screened porch enclosure looking new and elegant for years to come, plus it’s virtually maintenance free.

Some homeowners may opt for screened patios made of wood or even steel, but often times they don’t realize the long term disadvantages. Wooden or steel may split, become rotten, weathered by the elements; whereas aluminum patio structures are practically everlasting in both appearance and structural integrity.

The Benefits Of Using Aluminum Vs. Wood:

Low Maintenance: Aluminum screen enclosures require almost zero-maintenance over the years. Wood structures typically require additional maintenance costs from year to year, especially as the wood ages.

Weather Resistant: Unlike wood, there is no rotting or dry rot, peeling or corroding. Aluminum screen enclosures are not affected by outdoor elements and will not become brittle or warped.

Moisture Resistant: Our top quality aluminum materials can be used in most any environment: next to your swimming pool or hot tub, beach side or even simply in a hot and humid backyard. These are all common environments in Florida and they all have adverse effects on wood.

Pest Resistant: You will never have a termite or other wood-destroying insect problem with our aluminum patio coverings, screen room enclosures or sunrooms. One of the most frightening aspects of pest infestation is not only the safety hazard – the integrity of your structure is literally being eaten away –those nasty bugs might even spread to other areas of your home.

Fire Safety: Aluminum is a fire resistant material and helps protect your family and home during seasons of wild fires in Central Florida.

Increased Home Value: Aluminum adds long-term value to your home due to its clean lines, structural integrity and lifetime of durability. Additionally, with a screened enclosure you increase square footage in your home and that helps to increase your home’s value. Screen enclosed patios and sunrooms are consistently ranked as one of the Top 10 ways to add value to your home by realtors and brokers.

For all these reasons and more, well-designed aluminum patio screen enclosures and sunrooms are the most popular choice with Central Florida homeowners just like you. They appreciate the benefits of aluminum over wood and choose Dulando Screen and Awning to design and build the beautiful screens for patio enclosure or sunroom for their homes.
