A screen room wall can have all screen from the top to the bottom or they can incorporate some form of a kick plate, or a picket rail designed to keep the little ones or the animals from getting to the screens. Also, there can be a top transom section as well or just let the screens go to the top rails. the screen mesh rolls from 36 inch - 108-inch widths in 100 ft rolls. The screen railing framing is available in white, ivory, clay, or bronze colors. We also offer the 5 hinge 36-inch heavy duty screen room doors in the same colors.

All these screen room building components - channels, cap frame, and screen frame and corners are only sold wholesale in 25 ft sections, so your screen size and its design and layout are important.

At the trade shows this year the new Patio tends is about the "combination" type of patio covers and screen room. A portion of the patio cover which can be part of a screen room and the other portion that remains a open air patio. Or one-part solid patio covered top, and the other part a pergola style of roof. Or have a solid roof design with a portion closed in for a screen room and the other portion left open air patio and may or may not incorporate a fire feature of some type.

We offer an end-to-end client building experience that includes seamless communication, on-site organization, and solid, high-quality craftsmanship every time, all the time.
We custom build because there just isn't one type, one size, one design cookie cutter type of structure that fits any and all applications as each is different and offers up their own building challenges.
A good wind seismic performance and engineering are critical and very important to any type of structure design. With that being said there such a thing as an engineered or a non-engineered structure.
Working Together, we have built our impeccable reputation for building some of most advanced high-quality structures within our chosen industry. We can build all types of custom canopies structures to stand the test of time!
We build it instead of passing the installation off to a third party or just anyone. We build it and stand behind our work. After all, any and all building project it all starts with a straight, squire and plum structure. It is important that the frames are strong and built to handle the local load requirements as they do all of the heavy lifting. There are a lot of rules, do and don't in building here in Oklahoma. We see extremely high wind and rain loads. What works in other parts of the country may not work well around here.
Any structure can be stressed due to the weather such as wind and snow loads.
There are standard code requirements that should be meet or your structure could be at risk. Each and every building material has their own building engineering requirements and limits to what they should safely be used for, or you risk the entire structure.
During one of our extreme weather events, the roof is one of the most vulnerable areas of a structure. But it is the frame of the structure that does all of the heavy lifting. The larger or heavier the understructure framing members are the higher the wind / snow load the structure can withstand.
A standard build code requirement is a minimum building standard that should be followed. A customer might have their own building standards requirements that is above and of course that is alright as well. We can build to any building requirement(s) for a residential, commercial or industry application. What is your requirements?
Port-a-ble - Able to be moved - especially because of lighter weight.
Temp-po-rar-y - Lasting for only a limited time - not permanent.

Tired of washing the car and then having one of those Serengeti dust storms blow some of that good ole Oklahoma red dirt all over your vehicle again? Protect your vehicle's investments and keep them looking good so you can keep them nice much longer.
Put simply Aluminum is a non-furis metal that cannot rust and requires less ongoing maintenance such as painting.
You can beat the paint off any aluminum, and it won't rust
Steel has zinc in the metal, and it will rust. Aluminum doesn't.
Light weight strong building material.
The Spring / Summer / Fall are storms seasons on the Southern Plains which has some really unique weather conditions. Besides our sizzling hot summer seasons that can bake the finish off of your vehicles. We can get really strong and severe or an outright wicked and wild thunderstorm that can produce heavy rains, large hail, abnormally high and very damaging winds drafts and even tornados. As of matter fact Oklahoma has more tornados per square mile than any other State.
When the winds come swiping down the southern plains, Oklahoma's weather is not like any other place! Last year we didn't very many tornadoes like we normal do, but we received a lot of hail. The weather people are calling 2021 "The year of the Hail" and 2022 the year of the drought. Who know what we are going to get in 2023.
When building any type of outdoor canopy structure with our unique Oklahoma weather conditions, high winds and live loads must be taken into consideration.
Any and all of the building material has their own unique limitations of what they should be used for and that should not be surpassed. There are various deferent thicknesses and types of building materials used to construct anyone building structure depending on the structure's unique applications.
The taller a canopy structures might be the more upload lifts wind drafts the structure is going to get under the canopy structure and it wants to take flight up in the air or they just be torn apart.
The larger canopy frame must be built to withstand these unique weather conditions. Most parts of the country might see 35-mph wind loads so their product may not work very well in our weather conditions. Here we see 80 plus mph winds loads all the time.
What works in one part of the country, might not work around here because they may not see all kinds of winds that those structures are not built for. That is why we tell people not to use any prefabricated kits you might see at the big box stores. Some come from overseas and most are not built to our building standards. Get protected with a safe and secure well-built perinate canopy structure.
Same goes for the larger patio covers structures. The wider and or the longer the open spins might be the larger and stronger the poles and the cross beams must be.
Do not scamp out on the poles and beams. The frame is what holds the structure up!
here, A A carport is no longer just a luxury item, it is a necessity to protect your vehicle investments!
Carports and Patio Covers of Oklahoma only builds permanent type of carport canopy structures that is a great way to protect your vehicle investment(s).

All of our carport canopies are custom built to order to protect your vehicle investments from rain, hail, snow, ice and blistering heat as well as protection for the stuff that might be coming from the trees that can damage or even ruin your vehicles finish and its resale value.
If your vehicles are currently stored outside and is exposed to the weather elements, we suggest investigating the possibility of purchasing a custom built perinate carport canopy structure to protect your valuable vehicle investments.
Your vehicle(s) or RVs is something that probably took you a long time to save up to purchase. In fact, you may still be paying for them and there would be nothing worse than having it damage due to just one of our hailstorms. We all want to keep our vehicle(s) in tip-top shape to resell them at the highest price possible.
Most of the people that we build for say they should have done it sooner than they did.
Carports pay for themselves several times over their lifespan.
We work hard to educate our customers how a carport pays for itself with your ROI (return on investment) being really high. If just one of your vehicles was to get damaged what happens after your insurance pays to have it repaired.
1. Customer must pay the ins deductible.
2. Vehicle title gets marked as being damaged.
3. Vehicles value plumets as you got a wholesale valued vehicle not a frontline valued vehicle and more than likely sold to a wholesale buyer. Just like the vehicle had been wreaked. A mark title is just that...
4. To a train eye you a spot a vehicle finished has been repainted and repaired. Especially a couple of years later. As the sun will take its toll on even the best repair. I can testify to that as two years ago, I had a truck repainted down on side. Now the clearcoat is bubbling up and coming off. I went to take it back and the body shop has sold to new owners.
Today’s backyards aren’t just grassy areas for the kids to play in; they’re filled with amenities and luxuries that can transform it into your own personal oasis.
Outdoor living areas are now being used for cooking, dining, and entertainment on a scale that hasn’t been seen before.
I just seen a pop-up movie theater kit that included a screen, a projector and a party specker. This is leading more people to change up their spaces and work to create an area that will meet all of their needs, as diverse and multi-functional as needed.
Outdoor living rooms are the must-have feature this year, according to most of experts. Outdoor living areas give you a space to entertain and relax with family and friends or alone. With additions like fire pits or outdoor fireplaces, they can also be used year-round, which increases their appeal and value. This is another area that can be combined with outdoor kitchens or dining areas to create a more complete outdoor living space.
Finally, people are also beginning to invest in spaces such as outdoor screen rooms, bars, and offices, expanding the potential for outdoor living to include more ways to work and entertain.
Carport canopies are much like a patio covers and vice-versa and are used for several different purposes. Such as sidewalks, entryway, and store front covers. Some might use window awnings as shade from the sun, but they also used as protection from our hailstorms that has beat up on some local store front in our recent past with broken store front windows. Protection from the weather such as the heat from the sun's rays beating down on a front door handle that can burn your skin to the touch. Some might just need a need a new architectural look from a basic ole standard metal building look to set themselves apart from the others.
Whether it's a break room cover, parking areas, entrance way door covers, walkways between buildings, or a handicapped ramp covers or a residential patio cover. We don't just offer one type of canopy cover like most contractors do. I have numerious customers that like to mix building matertals. No probems with us.
We offer several different types of covers with various different type of applications and continue to evolve our craft as different other types of building materials enter the marketplace all the time. If you do not see what you are looking for, please contact us.
Selecting the material that will best suit your needs and the patio environment will give you the best cover possible. Your patio cover can be constructed from materials such as wood, steel or aluminum building materials or a combination of these building materials. A patio cover can be built strong and can withstand the weather elements. The right material also works toward you having the right design and visually appealing products.

The double thickness and multi wall and roof thicker panels system is designed for use outdoors.
