Just Keeping Out The Weather...


Enclose a porch without enclosing it. I use WeatherLite because I think its better.

Re: Just Keeping Out The Weather...


That looks awesome, I'm thinking of doing something similar off of the back door, just to make a sort of mud room/sun room.

Is this the "Weatherlite" you're referring to?

Not sure how that stuff would hold up to the cold...

How would that stuff work in removable panels? I've been wanting to make some up to protect the porch during the winter months.

Re: Just Keeping Out The Weather...


Sorry guys, forgot to tag this.

Bentizzy, That is the brand, don't know who the seller is. If you need comparison prices let me know. They use it up north all the time, the vinyl will eventually get worn but down here it takes a sun beating and stays strong for a long time.

VH, all the panels in these types of setups are removable. I like to use the exterior mount since it has a rolled in screen = better bug protection.
