There are different types of screen enclosures and each has different design intentions and attributes that make it perfect for its job. Since each of the enclosures works differently, you should learn the basic types.

Types of Screen Enclosures

Screen Rooms

A screen room is a structure that is added to a home or on top of a patio or deck. The screen room is a structure that has a concrete roof and open screened walls. Screen rooms can have sloped or gabled roofs depending on your preference. They are designed for outdoor sitting (including outdoor kitchens) that are semi-protected from the elements.

Pool Enclosures

The pool enclosure is a type of screen enclosure that is designed to protect an outdoor swimming pool. They are perfect for keeping away bugs and animals as well as children and they can be installed over in-ground or above ground pools. Pool enclosures are available in different styles and materials and they are all see-through for visibility.


Sunrooms are made of glass and they are designed for outdoor viewing while still offering a full protection from the elements. They are completely enclosed. They are better than the screen rooms because you can control the environment more. They do not have insulation and they can be built on top of decks or patios or as an addition to your home as long as the structures have considerable support.

pool Patio Covers

A patio cover is an enclosure that covers the top of an area (although, not fully enclosed). They are designed to protect an area like an outdoor kitchen from the sun and rain. However, you can convert patio covers into screen rooms with just the addition of screen walls. In addition to the above, you can affix a ceiling fan to a patio cover and gutters come normally. For a better support, you can also install support posts for patio covers on top of a foundation or directly into the ground.

These are just the basic types of outdoor enclosures. You can contact a professional if you have specific need or request. An expert can build an enclosure for your pool patio and outdoor kitchen based on your desire no matter your area in Orange County, New York. Also, understand the type of material you want as it affects the design concept, maintenance, and the longevity of your screen enclosure.
