The wood used in the screen frames is naturally moisture and decay resistant western red cedar.

Is there any space between the floor boards?

Yes, there is space between each deck board to allow water to drain through. In addition, there is a layer of insect screen below the decking to keep the bugs out if this screen porch.

Thank-you for your quick response. We have an 800 sq. foot screened porch on the second floor over our carport. Currently there is a plywood sub floor with indoor outdoor carpet and it is screened below as well. I wanted to replace with ipe, but it is too expensive, so I am looking for alternatives. We are in Fl. and cypress isn't too expensive, so maybe that or slate tiles are possible. I love the douglas fir floor in this picture.

Hello and thank you for your question. This happens to be a screen porch, so there are no windows per se.

A glass door is best because it allows you to see into the inviting porch, expanding your interior space visually. I like the glass doors with blinds built into them--lots of versatility and nice clean lines.

In some ways a screen porch is much more about the effect that it has on the interior rooms that it is connected to. Large double doors from a living or dining room onto a screen porch allow the interior rooms to feel like they are apart of the porch itself. This extends the living area to the exterior spaces of your home and brings in lots of fresh air. Glass doors still allow some connection even when closed. A solid slab door would seem to defeat the purpose of a screen porch.

What kind of screen/windows are these? Do they have a storm window option?

Hello, thanks for your question. These screen were designed by us and custom built by the contractor. In the event of a screen failure, they can be replaced by removing stops. There is no storm window option on this house, however we've done this on other projects. Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Elements of a Porch Paradise
Screens. Speaking of bugs, if mosquitos are your state's unofficial bird (I swiped that line from one of you commentors), you may need to transform your open porch or deck into a screened-in porch. Screens are especially appreciated on a sleeping porch.
