Cost To Screen In Existing Porch


Has anyone an idea of labor cost to screen in an existing porch (hrs.per sq ft of wall space), never had a call for this before and my estimating software has no reference. Worth a shot to ask.

Re: Cost To Screen In Existing Porch


Sorry, but you're a little lacking in the detail department. Specifics like size, materials etc. It's pretty hard for anyone to give you any help. Starting with materials x2 and adding on from there for the intricate details is probably your best starting point.

Re: Cost To Screen In Existing Porch


Sorry about that. This particular porch is approx. 16 ft wide and 18 ft long, would be about 10 ft above ground. Screen will be on three sides 16',16' and 18') It already has a roof. 6 x 6 post are inplace and on 8 ft centers, Railings are in place and will be left there for safety.. Just need to frame in for 3 x 7 screen panels, build and install panels, trim face with 1 x material. Fairly simple operation.

Re: Cost To Screen In Existing Porch


I would normally charge $7 a sqft to screen-in a porch. About $3.00 to $4.00 of that is for materials depending on what type of screen they want to use. So you could probaly figure between $3 and $4 a sqft for labor.

@ $3 sqft =$864
@ $4 sqft =$1152

You pick it,,,lol
