Backyard screen patios allow you to delight in the beauty of your backyard while enjoying the convenience of a sheltered, shady space that keeps bothersome debris and stinging insects at bay. Enclosing that patio is a fantastic way to add value and usable space to your home. If your patio is not already under roof, you’ll need to choose a patio covering for your new screened patio enclosure. A popular choice for a screened patio enclosure is insulated roof panels. These cleverly designed foam core panels can deliver an ideal blend of practicality and attractiveness for your new patio enclosure.
The Science – Going Inside a SIP
Structural insulated panels, which are also known as SIPs or SIP panels, sandwich an insulating foam core between two structural facings. Manufactured under factory-controlled conditions, SIP panels are ordered in the appropriate size, transported to the job site and smoothly pieced together. When installed, insulated roof panels form a strong, cost-effective and energy-efficient roofing system that’s perfect for screen patio enclosures and other applications.
The How – When Practicality Matters
At Dulando Screen & Awning, we’re committed to excellence. That’s why we exclusively use high-quality aluminum and Structall products when designing and constructing custom patio enclosures for our clients. When practicality is a priority, Structall Snap-N-Lock Insulated Panels are a smart choice. With a foam core nestled inside a rolled aluminum skin, these panels:
- Are both affordable and durable.
- Come in multiple sizes, making a wide range of floor plans and roof pitches possible.
- Snap together quickly thanks to a unique, patented locking system which makes installation a breeze and reduces labor costs.
- Use sealant within the panel’s interior to produce a waterproof bond that resists ultraviolet destruction.
- Resist common concerns in Florida like condensation or high winds.
- Create a continuous insulated foam interface for an energy-efficient roof that keeps your screened patio enclosure more comfortable and your cooling expenses lower.
The Why – An Attractive Option
While the practicalities obviously matter, aesthetics are important as well. Fortunately, there is no need to choose between the two with Structall insulated roof panels. These versatile panels can easily accommodate an impressive array of design options. Did you want a skylight, built-in lighting or a ceiling fan? It’s no problem to add one when these roof panels top your patio enclosure. As for visual appeal, insulated roof panels come in several weather-resistant, low-maintenance finishes. You are sure to find one that suits your tastes. They can even be covered with shingles or vinyl siding if you prefer that look or want your new screened patio enclosure to match your home’s existing roof.
