Frame Options For Screened Deck (Open Deck With No Covered Roof)
We only offer a DIY product so the frame is up to you. If you currently have no covered roof, you should speak to us BEFORE you take it upon yourself to build a frame to ensure that it is compatible with creating a our deck screen enclosure methods (initially, email us a digital photo of just the proposed space). The following options vary in cost and aesthetics. For those structures requiring a “roof panel” we carry a black Deck Shade fabric that blocks both insects and 80% of sunlight. While not 100% block, it allows a clear view of the sky and designed to “take the edge off” that bright orb in the sky.
PVC Frame A simple option using 2-3″ PVC depending on size and is easily removable.
Simple Overhead Wood Box Essentially a Pergola without rafters, very easy, inexpensive, & very compatible.
The Frameless Upside Down Netting Box A very situational solution.
Screen Cage Fancy, modular in that you can relocate, pricey. Great for pools & other large spaces.

Interchangeable With Winter Weather Curtains
Yes, we also make Winter Weather Panels for decks to block cold wind rain and snow. We use the same methods and you can use the same fasteners such that both products are completely interchangeable. Swap them out seasonally when the weather changes
Quality Screened In Deck Materials
Our most important concern is always quality. Here is an example. The cheap gazebo screens you may have seen on aluminum gazebos at home improvement stores are garbage. You can put your thumb right through it. Our netting is strong enough to lift this 240lb man. Even more, it is “solution dyed” such that the thread is colored and UV protected to its core. It means that your curtains won’t fade or rot prematurely. All fasteners are stainless steel and our tracking hardware is powder-coated aluminum.
“Thank you for the follow-up email about the snap tool. I should have taken a picture during the winter. We had one of the worst winters on record in Maryland. We were able to use our porch all winter long because of the protection and insulation the vinyl Mosquito Curtains provide. This last month as spring arrived, our porch temperature has been warmer than our actual house temperature. A fantastic product!”

“Kurt, Here is a night shot of the curtains you sent to us last week. Covering the entire courtyard opening had the effect that I wanted and made it a cozy area for guests at dinner. If you remember, we had originally only covered the side openings. Hope you like the look as well. We are once again very happy, satisfied customers of Mosquito Curtains.”

“Hi, We just installed our curtains on a section of our porch and are very pleased. We are now considering installing curtains on the adjoining section. Installation went well, we were very pleased. Thanks for all of your help, Kurt, and for a great product! We have used our porch more in the past week than we did all last summer. Love it!”

“We love the curtains. Everyone was sooo helpful and installing was trouble-free. They are so durable that I’ll bet they will last many years.”
“Could not be happier! What a great product. Top quality materials, superior customer service and simple homeowner installation.”
“I have just come in from our bug free carport to thank you again for the Mosquito Curtain.”
“Thank you for a great product. We have been able to re-claim our porch in the evenings. Your customer service is second to none!”
