re: Pros / Cons of a screened in patio?
Nu Code Shutters out of Houma does retractable screens. They’ll be doing mine.

You’re looking at ~\$270/LF. I’m scared to multiply that by 44LF!

This doens't make sense.. Is the Liner ft. calculated by just the length of the opening or the Length x Height?

Say I have a patio that is 40ft long by 12ft deep by 10ft tall. Should I calculate (40+12)*\$277? Seems expensive.

re: Pros / Cons of a screened in patio?
I would assume that all the heights will be 10’ +- for your calculations and from what remember discussing, slight changes in height didn’t affect the cost much if at all (like if I mounted it at 9’ or 10’ it was the same price).

For your exact reference, my number is based off of a 10’x24’ screen.

if you have cats they will shred the screens and hyper dogs sometimes do this as well

Be wary of this.
But, there are some heavy duty pet screens to help with this

That sounds about right price wise, I've got 20LF and company wanted 6k.
