The Extruded Aluminum Framing

This is an extremely flexible part of your Hard Top Screen Enclosure. These screen enclosure materials are perfect for the diy'er to avoid dealing with contractors. Each screen enclosure comes with all the extruded aluminum, screws, clips and screening - - everything internal to the installation. You provide the tools and labor. Our screen enclosure systems are basically custom designed to fit your specific application. High quality, durable and maintenance free - - all at a price that will not break the bank and it comes with all the help you need from Home Porch & Patio Kits Inc.

 

 

Hard Top Screen Rooms
Extruded Aluminum Screen Wall Framing System

 

This 'do it yourself' kit is classified as a "materials supplied" kit. All that means is you will receive extruded aluminum profiles, typically the 1701 U channel, the 1707 1 x 2 mainframe and the 1708 2 x 2 mainframe, pictured below, in 16' and 20' lengths. You will then be cutting, from those 16' and 20' lengths, the vertical and horizontal lengths that are specific to the size and height of openings that we have suggested for your particular application.

 

All components are screwed together on site and the last step is to screen in each opening that you have created with the aluminum extrusions, using the supplied screen and spline. We supply everything (except the hardware to secure the U channels to your existing surfaces) you need, including the screen door, to finish the project!

 

A Quick Description

We provide a front beam and post assembly for your insulated roof to ensure your unit is fully engineered! Once your roof is assembled you will come back to building your screen walls.

 

Typically, to start, the horizontal and vertical U channels (1701 / 1701A) are laid down within each of your openings. Then, where indicated in your drawing, all the 1708 2 x 2 vertical mainframes are installed. Most vertical mainframes against the house wall and posts will be the 1707 1 x 2 mainframes; again refer to your drawing that came with your quotation.

 

After the 1701 U channels and the 1707 & 1708 vertical mainframes are in place, the horizontal 1707 1 x 2 mainframes are cut and installed into the top and bottom U channels between verticals. If you doing just the chair rail option the 1708 2 x 2 mainframe will be installed between verticals at a height of your choosing that does not interfere with sightlines into the backyard. If you have chosen the kickplate option, then the 1708 2 x 2 mainframe has been designed to cap the kickplate.

 

You are now ready to screen each opening using the screen and spline supplied with the rest of your materials. The finishing touch will be to assemble the knock-down door and hang it the openings you have created in your set up (and as indicated in your quotation drawing).

 

 

A Few Extra Notes:

  1. Standard 3' wide x 6'8" tall 'knock down' (picture on the right) screen doors are available as an option. You can request as many doors as you need or you can supply your own doors.

  2. Also, as an option, you can choose to install an 18" or 24" tall kickplate in the bottom of the screen panels that you build.

  3. Should you choose not to install a kickplate, we will supply enough 1708 - 2" x 2" mainframe for you to use between verticals as a chair rail. You can install this at whatever height you wish. Have a seat in your favorite chair and install it at a height that does not interfere with your view!

  4. When you submit your request for quotation (Click Here) we will put together, not only the cost for materials, but a drawing of your application with our suggested spacing of verticals - - the size of screen panels that you will be creating. Generally, they will range from 32" to 60" wide panels and it will depend on the entire scope of your project.
