At Great Day Improvements, we understand that you have options, and we like options. That’s why we offer all types of sunroom and screen room additions. We also want to help you make the best decision for your home.

Creating an enclosed patio, sunroom, Florida room, or solarium is a unique adventure in home improvements. When all is said and done, you will have built a bridge between your home and the great outdoors.

Screen Patio Enclosures

A Full List of Advantages

Our Patio Enclosures® brand screen rooms are custom-made by long-time artisans in the industry. These craftsmen offer several exclusive advantages over their competitors:

screen roomPatio Enclosures® brand rooms employ aluminum mesh in all their screening material, while other companies use fiberglass screening. Over their remarkable half-century history as leaders in the industry, Patio Enclosures has never installed a single fiberglass screen. The reason for this is that fiberglass creates a static-electric charge. This charge attracts the debris in the air all around the screened-in patio, and soon the tiny openings in the fiberglass screening material are clogged with dust and dirt.

When if the time comes to hose off the aluminum screening material, you’ll be amazed at how easy this entire process can be. Each and every Patio Enclosures screen can be effortlessly lifted up and out of its master railing and replaced with the same ease.

Security is not an issue with the right screened-in sunroom hardware. Each screen rides in a dedicated track making for easy transformation of covered patio, to screened-in enclosure. This also means that mesh screens which are easy to lift up and out for cleaning will not jump out of their tracks for burglars or vandals.

Glass Patio Enclosures

A Stunning Array of Customized Options to Suit Your Needs

While enclosing your sunroom with any type of glass will cost more than enclosing it with screens, many home owners find the extra expense to be well worth it, because glass offers far better protection from the outside elements, and adds extra value to the home itself. There are many different options for glass patio enclosures, but they can be broken down into two very general categories, for the sake of brevity:

sunroomSingle-pane glass: Home owners looking for the next upgrade up from aluminum mesh screens will usually choose single-paned glass panels. This material will protect the room and anything in it from wind, rain, dust and humidity.

Double-pane glass: This is the next step up, and quite a step it is. Double-paned glass provides energy-efficient thermal protection that keeps the interior warmer when it’s cold outside and cooler when it’s hot. Double-pane insulated glass is used in all Patio Enclosures year-round sunrooms but can be added to any three season room for extended seasonal use.

We've Got the Edge, You Can Have It Too

Patio Enclosures brand sunrooms are the only sunrooms in the entire industry today that are manufactured in one-eighth inch increments. This adds up to more precisely fitting panels, plus more glass or screening area than any other enclosure manufacturer. The result is edge-to-edge apertures for sunlight and all of nature’s glory.
