Every customer is unique, as are each of our custom built Enclosures. Here are some general "Outdoor Education" questions and answers pertaining to Suncoast that you may have from you initial investigations.
For questions pertaining to your specific home/commercial application, please contact us. We will be happy to give more detailed information and help you create better outdoor living.
Suncoast Enclosures are made of the finest quality materials available. The frame is fabricated from maintenance-free, powder-coated aluminum. All the aluminum extrusions are manufactured exclusively for us and incorporate a patented system that locks the screening in. This prevents it from being pushed out or becoming saggy over time. The covering can be made of fibreglass mesh or polycarbonate plastic, which we import because it's 80% stronger than local products.
The other major component is know-how. It requires proper procedure and knowledge to assemble these materials into the finished product. This is where we excel, having more experience in this field than anyone else in Canada.
Our screen enclosures are designed to do several things, which basically allows you to better enjoy your outdoor living area. For pools, this means you spend your time swimming instead of cleaning. Also, an evening swim or a weekend barbeque becomes much more enjoyable without the harassment of flies and mosquitoes.
If you enclose your deck, patio or gazebo, it becomes your outdoor living room and allows you to open up your house and lifestyle. Because the screen is transparent, it lets the sun in and won't inhibit the views you enjoy. Yes, you can still suntan through it, although if protection is what you want, we have a shade cloth to limit the sun or act as a privacy wall.
Should you require a solid roof, we use a long life tinted polycarbonate plastic. It looks much nicer than corrugated products and lets enough light in so as not to darken adjoining rooms. Combinations of these materials can be used to achieve the desired results.
No, each enclosure is designed to suit your circumstances, keeping in mind function and aesthetics. We design each enclosure exclusively to compliment your home and landscaping so that it will be a beautiful addition.
Our larger beams allow us to freespan up to 7 meters so most areas can be accommodated.
Yes, we are occasionally requested to build glass or fully enclosed areas. While this might be very desirable, consideration must be given to design, ventilation and cost.
Frequently a combination of fibreglass mesh and polycarbonate serves to protect an area from wind, while allowing full ventilation. Glass houses and sunrooms will be pleasant both summer and winter if glass windows and sliding glass door are used for ventilation.
Every job is custom built. Measurements, design and dialogue are essential. Options will vary to suit individual needs. We will give you an accurate and firm price to the penny.
In any case, you will find the price pleasant and affordable. Screen room prices are surprisingly low when compared to glassed-in enclosures. You will not face high heat loss and costs experienced with solariums, sunrooms or three season rooms. Nor will you experience the high temperature these rooms produce.
There is no cleaning of glass, no breakage, no plastic surface scouring or color fading of material. Last but not least is the fact that there is no property tax adjustment with a screen room.
