  • outrageous.But I also want something that will keepsquare and be able to reuse each fall.So far the prices have been more than a standard window would be.I am shying from using roll plastic,but may have no choice

  • I get interior storms from my glass man. They come with an AL frame with butyl rubber seal and clips to hold in place

  • not butyl rubber !really..lol.No I am just trying to put something in that hole. I like my screened in ,but I framed it for later 3-0x4-0 windows.I wont spend a penny on this.If i were to spend ,I'd goahead and get windows and make it a real addition. I have enough room .We really enjoy the porch more than inside. I plan on finishing inside and wrapping windows in maple,when the time comes.

  • Not sure what you are saying, but I have done this on three customer's homes with screen ed porches where they want to close it in for winter

    Plexi-glass, or heavy duty shower curtains cut to size.

  • sometimes i walk past a bar with an outdoor patio closed in.That plastic is exactly what I want . It is clear as well as thick enough to keep a frame square.But I have yet to find it on any sites yet

    Those guys will send you their product with instructions for a DIY install if that's what you mean.

  • yes sharon,thats where i'm headed.

  • I bleave in using materials hanging around.hence my window on pic coming. This is just a tabletop,that otherwise would have just layed around .I have lots of stuff so I'm always trying to save a buck.While not being rigged looking

    older post yes but just in case someone else stumbles across it- green house panels may be less expensive than plexi in certain areas. check w/ green house supply companies for green house panels in the bargain bin area. they are not the full 4x 8 sheets, but ends from building green houses. they are usually lexan, and doubled walled. it will cut well with a jig saw. cover the channels with tape after cutting to size. i used these as interior storms for my basement windows.
