We’ll help you get your screened-in porch repair done quickly, minimizing the damage. 

Why Is Timing Important for a Screen Repair?

Quick screen repair service is key, since waiting an extra day or two can bring dire consequences. Waiting too long might cause further stress from the elements.  As a result, what could have been solved with a small patch of fresh screening might end up requiring a total screen replacement, which is more costly and time-consuming. Plus, the interior of your sunroom will suffer more damage due to wind, rain, or humidity.

Acting quickly will help you protect your home. Fast screen repair will allow you to avoid the cleanup costs involved with insects, moisture-causing mold growth, wind damage, and so on. Contact Tropicana immediately for simple, fast screen repair.

Common Screened-in Porch Repair Issues

Tears in your screen can cause several different problems, which is why seeking a screened-in porch repair right away is so important. Acting quickly may prevent these issues:

Mold or Mildew

Your sunroom, pool enclosure, or porch will be much more susceptible to humidity and water damage if there’s a tear in your screen. Excess moisture can cause a lot of different issues—mold, mildew, and bacteria thrive in these conditions.

Not only can this give your space an unpleasant smell, but it’s also harmful to your health. Plus, you might have to deal with unsightly staining or rotting materials. A timely screen repair will help keep water and moisture out.   

Wind Damage

Waiting to schedule repair will leave your space more vulnerable to wind-blown dirt and debris that can create a mess in your enclosed area. It’s best to plan your screen repair before the next storm hits. 

Bug Invasion

One of the most annoying side effects of a torn screen is that it will no longer keep the critters out. Your screened-in area should provide an oasis from the Florida bugs and pests—make sure you plan your screen repair before bugs get the chance to invade your space.

When Do You Need a Screen Replacement?

For small rips in your screen, a repair is a cost-effective option, especially if you act quickly. However, sometimes it makes more sense to replace the whole screen, especially if it’s old and worn out. Learn whether you should repair or replace your screen.
