Patio Enclosure Materials

The materials used to completely assemble a new patio enclosure varies, from the materials used for framing, to the transparent glass types, to the screen mesh used, to any operable windows and doors. Patio enclosure materials individually perform with different pros and cons, and some of the resulting patio enclosure materials will be dictated by the exterior fa├žade of the home, roof structure, dimensions of the enclosure and its overall anticipated use. Our company and team of helpful experts are on hand to guide you through the process of making sound choices, while helping you stay on track with your budget.


There are a couple of different types of glass with patio enclosure materials that our company manufactures, there is single glass pane (great for use during three of the Canadian seasons) and double glass pane (which is thermal-friendly and energy efficient throughout all four Canadian seasons). We offer our customers optional c hoices like tinting the glass, low-e glazing and interchangeable glass for screens.


Our screening material is highly durable aluminium mesh that is painted black, in order to deflect some of the harmful UV rays that come through with natural sunlight. Our screens are perfectly manufactured for keeping insects out, using our high-grade screening that is made to be durable against the weather elements, and strong for longer life (our screen/mesh panels resist corrosion and sagging).


Aluminium is a great choice for its lower costs, its high rigidity, almost maintenance free, a larger variety of colours & sizes, it is lightweight, but it is a conductor which will require a thermal break in the aluminium framing. Our alumawood option is a type of aluminium that is manufactured to have the appealing look of authentic wood, which is a great option for those homeowners that appreciate the look of natural wood.


Vinyl is a top choice for many homeowners for its durability, maintenance-free appeal, resistant to mold, offering a wealth of colour palettes & wood-look or metal-look manufacturing, and is easier to install. The most cost-effective choice is vinyl/PVC for its versatility and made in various shapes, offering a smaller colour palette, is easily accessible and is a decent insulator (vinyl/PVC lasts for many years).


Wood is the more expensive choice, but it is a natural material, it has a warm appearance, it is versatile for all sized constructions, it is an superb insulator of noise & heat (there are now rot-proof and exotic natural woods available), but it requires treatment (painting or staining) and regular maintenance.


Steel is strong, pleasing to the eyes, is a higher quality material, is versatile for various sized constructions, but it has a low insulation factor and requires reinforced steel & anti-rust treatments (it is parallel in cost to wood). Steel, when properly cared for, can last for many years.
