Extend your outdoor season with the beauty and comfort of a 3-Season Enclosure
Need your own space to kick back and relax, or a room that will extend your home for a holiday party or family gathering, or how about the perfect place for the kids to kick off their snow suits and boots during the winter months? These are just a few of the many reasons why 3-Season Rooms are still one of the most popular home improvement projects of homeowners today.
Your choices are many, the results the same a BEAUTIFUL 3-Season Room!
At North Star-Bailey Company, we're not locked into any one product or style of porch enclosure system. Some folks like the look and feel of wood, some like the maintenance-free features of vinyl or aluminum, and some like to combine the attributes of both, at an affordable price. We can work with your existing porch or construct new wall systems to suit your taste.
A knee-wall porch is a conventional 2 by 4 framed wall that can be made to any height you choose. This type of porch affords you the privacy created by the wall and can be wired for electrical outlets. The exterior of the wall can be sided in shingles or clapboards, in wood or vinyl. The interior of the room can be finished in any style you choose, from rustic barn board to conventional sheetrock. The knee-wall porch is also available in pre-engineered aluminum or vinyl wall systems.
The floor to ceiling wall enclosure maintains the look of a wide-open porch and is the favorite of folks with a view of a beautiful garden, the ocean front, or a scenic landscape. Floor to ceiling walls can have as little as three inches of framing at the bottom of the enclosure, thereby maximizing the entire height and length of the wall with screen and glass.
3-Season Wall Enclosures in so many styles
Whether you prefer to have a knee-wall or a floor to ceiling style room, we can offer you the following window/screen enclosures in each style of porch: self storing, interchangeable glass/screen, horizontal sliding window, double hung window, jalousie window, awning window and sliding patio doors.
An interchangeable glass/screen style wall means that the glass would have to be removed and interchanged with a screen for summer use, and vice versa, much like a storm door. The advantage of this type of system is that you can have a full screen type of enclosure for the summer and convert to all glass in the winter months. This type of system requires a storage area for the screens or glass when they are not in use, but are typically a more economical solution for enclosing your porch. Interchangeable glass/screen enclosures are available in knee-wall or floor to ceiling porches.
The self-storing style enclosure means that the glass and screen in the wall system never have to be removed and stored--they are stored within the wall system itself. Examples of self-storing walls include sliding window, sliding door, double hung window, awning window and jalousie window. Many of our products have a full screen on the outside of the porch wall, so you have the option to remove the glass for a full screen porch through the summer months. These style rooms can also include your choice of any of our Regency vinyl window products for a 4-Season enclosure.
Sliding windows are a popular choice in self-storing, knee-wall style porches. Sliding windows can be made up to 10" wide, maximizing the glass and screen area.
