Pergola with Mosquito Curtains; an Alternative to a Screened in Porch

Have you thought about adding an enclosure such as a screened-in porch to your backyard, but are looking for a more cost-effective alternative? Or perhaps you can’t commit to a fully-enclosed porch for everyday use. We have a great solution for those, who long for open-air outdoor living, with the option of mosquito protection!

Adding a pergola with mosquito curtains is a creative and affordable way to create an enclosed space for enjoying bug protection. Take a look at this beautiful deck and custom pergola design with mosquito curtains.

Pergolas by themselves provide shade on brighter days. These structures are made up of four posts with cross rafters. The further apart the rafters are, the more sun that will come through.

Mosquito curtains are made of a sheer netting fabric that is used to protect against mosquitoes and other bugs. This material can be attached to pergola structures on tracks, which can be opened or closed depending on the weather. Mosquito curtains not only provide the functional need for insect protection, but they also add a decorative touch as well as privacy to the outdoor living space.

Combining the structure of a pergola along with the mosquito curtain feature creates a great cost-effective alternative to an enclosure, like a screened-in porch. By placing the mosquito curtains on top of the pergola as well as surrounding, a bug-free enclosure is possible.
