Screen Room DisposalLet’s begin with the end, so-to-speak. Experienced contractors will tell you people who do their own remodeling (or demolition) typically make a few key mistakes. One is underestimating the amount of time and effort. Another is underestimating the actual costs.
You can make the most of your backyard by converting your deck to a screened-in porch, which turns mosquitoes, heat waves, and downpours into non-events. Plus, the thwack of a screen door is still the soundtrack for summer. Converting won’t be easy — unless you’ve got top-notch handyman skills, you’ll have to hire a pro. And it won’t be cheap — converting a 14-foot-by-14-foot deck into a porch will cost $10,000-$12,000. But it’s worth the time and money. Screened-in porches add value to your home. Reginald Carter, a Jacksonville, Fla., appraiser, says the return on investment is about 70% if you stay in your home for at least five years after installing the porch. —House Logic.comThen, there’s the matter of construction and remodeling debris disposal.

Pinellas Park Screen Room Dismantling TipsNow, onto the screen room dismantle job process. It’s fairly straightforward but will take a few helping hands and an entire weekend or more to complete. Here are some helpful screen room dismantling tips you can use:
- Empty the room. Before you begin, you should completely empty the space. This way, there’s nothing in your way (and nothing to accidentally damage while you’re working). Also, keep the area free of kids and pets.
- Remove the screen. You can use a utility knife to cut the screen from the frame, section by section. Some of it might well be salvageable but the majority is junk from here on out.
- Assess the structure’s condition. Once you’ve cut out and/or torn out the screen, you can then take some time to assess the condition of the frame and roof. Then, you can decide if you’ll just rescreen the space or tear it down completely. Remember, it’s always possible to rescreen the space using the existing frames, if those are in good, usable condition. Ir not, you can take it down.
