It’s amazing how many of us design and build screen porches with our pets in mind. At Archadeck of Charlotte, we are constantly consulting with homeowners on making sure the screen porch will be suitable for their pets!
The most common concerns are the strength of the screen and the access of a “doggy door”. There are specialty screens like “pet screen” on the market that are resistant to tearing for a modest upcharge. Many people rely on the rail, which is built on the inside of the screen to be a detractor for pets ripping the screen. Mostly, we just love our pets and want to make sure there is a nice outdoor area for them without them escaping. Screen porches are fun and functional for both humans and our pets!
