Screen Porch and Patio Enclosure Options:
Enclose your porch for winter time use, blocking wind, rain, and cold air. We have four options for enclosing your porch to create a warmer more comfortable porch. Temporarily enclosing your porch also allows for regular Spring, Fall and Summertime use of your porch.
Each option offers specific benefits for protecting your screen porch or restaurant patio. We can help you determine the best solution for your porch and budget.
We sell, install, and service Clear Vinyl Porch Panels and Eze-Breeze Porch Enclosure Systems. Choose from manual cord pulley roll-up clear vinyl porch panels, manual worm gear operated clear vinyl roll-up panels with side tracks, motorized retractable clear vinyl panels, or Eze-Breeze four track versatile porch enclosure system.
Unlike paneling a porch with glass windows or walls that create a permanent room that needs to be cooled in summer months, adding clear vinyl curtains allows the homeowner to roll-up curtains up or stow them away in summer.
The purpose of having a porch, patio, or outdoor living room is to experience the joys of nature. Adding a sunroom or permanently enclosing an existing screen porch separates the homeowner from the beautiful outdoors and fresh air. Enjoy nature during warmer months by rolling-up or taking down clear vinyl panels.
Clear vinyl panels are a great option for enclosing a porch or restaurant patio to extend enjoyment past the normal seasonal use. They block cold winter winds, rain, pollen, and protect patio furniture.
Cord Pulley Clear Vinyl Roll-up Panels:
Our Clear Vinyl Cord Pulley Panels are made with a 20 mil soft clear vinyl with Sunbrella surround material at the bottom, top, and along sides. Panels are secured to porch post members with turn screws. Grommets are added to panels’ sides. Turn screws are added to customer’s porch post which secure panels to openings. A simple pulley is added to lift and lower panels. Cord Pulley Clear Vinyl Panels great for porch openings that are ten feet wide or less than ten feet wide. Panels can be installed on screen porches or open porches. You may choose to have us install on the inside of porch or outside of porch.
- Best price point compared to worm gear operated or motorized clear vinyl roll-up panels
- Large selection of Sunbrella border material
- Can be installed on inside of porch for easy roll-up and roll down (in most cases)
- Year round use
- Less sticking when rolled up and rolling back down
- Customer can have us install or DYI
- Can help DYI customers design simple panels over the phone
Snap-in Clear Vinyl Curtains:
Another simple option for enclosing your screen porch or restaurant patio for wintertime use is our clear vinyl snap-in panels. Panels are made similar to the cord pulley panels with Sunbrella surround material and clear vinyl windows, but they are secured to porch openings with marine snaps. Customers may take panels down during warmer months and stow under a bed or in a basement. This is a good option for smaller porches with shorter openings. Panels can be made to accommodate obtuse openings like Zia Taqueria Restaurant in the photo and screen doors. Clear vinyl panels can be snapped easily to screen doors and taken off during warmer months.
Manual Worm Gear Operated Clear Vinyl Roll-up Panels:
Our clear vinyl worm gear operated panels are secured on the sides with tracks that are mounted to porch post surface or in-jamb. Clear vinyl panels are raised and lowered with a manual worm gear operator. Insert turning handle into eye socket to operate panels. Worm gear operated clear vinyl porch panels are a good option for patios and porches that have spans larger than ten feet wide. Panels can be made up to 19’ wide. Some deflection in weight bar and roller tube are present after 16’, but panels function just as well. This option does not have a cassette cover to hide collected material when rolled-up. We can add a fascia to hide the reel and fabric. The clear vinyl worm gear operated panels are great for keeping out pollen, cold air, and rain on porches and restaurant patios due to side tracks and bottom weight bar that create a seal.

- Lower cost compared to motorized clear vinyl panels
- Covers larger spans than cord pulley or snap-in clear vinyl panels
- Less sticking compared to motorized clear vinyl panels
- Six powder coat colors for side tracks and weight bar

Motorized Retractable Clear Vinyl Porch Panels:
Our Motorized Retractable Clear Vinyl Panels are powered by SOMFY motors and controlled with a handheld remote, wireless wall switch, or an App on your cell phone. At the touch of a button panels lower creating a seal to keep out cold air, pollen, rain and wind. Clear Vinyl Panels roll-up just as easy out of the way, allowing the homeowner to enjoy fresh air. Motorized Clear Vinyl Retractable Panels are best for Fall, Winter, and Spring time use. They should not be rolled-up wet.
