Summer has faded into fall and fall is slowly fading into winter. Now is the time to begin winter preparations, including winterizing your screened-in porch. Winterizing your screened-in porch allows you to enjoy the luxuries that your porch provides year round. Here are three ways you can winterize your screen porch.
Install Screen Block
Screen Block is our revolutionary two in one screening system that easily converts a screened-in porch to an enclosed living area during the colder months. It utilizes Winterview clear PVC film that is installed in addition to your porch screening. The film allows for cold air to stay out of your screened-in porch, as well as provides a clean, seamless look. All fasteners are hidden from view thanks to Screen Block’s retainer strips and trim pieces.
Screen Block is available in 1.5-in x 1.5-in base and 8-ft lengths. It is usable on existing porch structures and is flexible enough for screening archways. The low profile system is ideal for framed openings and is easy to cut and trim with no mitering needed.
Add Our Windbreaker to Your Screen Door
To keep cold air from coming in through your screen door, consider installing our Windbreaker clear acrylic panel. Unlike Winterview, Windbreaker actually replaces the screening in your screen door. It can easily be installed and removed from screen doors.
Windbreaker’s white frame allows for it to easily blend in with existing screen doors. It is a cost effective option for winterizing your screen door. Windbreaker is compatible with the below Screen Tight screen doors.

Consider Adding a Fireplace
If you want to make your screen porch truly a luxury escape that you can utilize 12 months out of the year, consider adding a porch fireplace. A fireplace creates a relaxing environment while providing much needed warmth during the winter months.
There are a variety of different porch fireplaces available including freestanding, recessed, wall mounted and even tabletop. Porch fireplaces can be designed to match your style. Whether you want something more traditional or are looking for a more modern, sleek look, there is sure to be a fireplace to fit your style and budget.
To truly create a warm escape in the winter months, consider adding all three of the above options to winterize your screened-in porch.
