My OPINION is if you're getting the screen to cut down on bugs why get a type that allows potentially the most annoying ones through? That being said, we are doing no screen on my new build which is breaking ground next month.Screen Enclosure decision: Screen type 20/20 or 18/14??
If you have a screen enclosure, what did you go with?
Cost: 18/14 will be around $800 less ($0.20 per square foot)
Sunshine: 18/14 will let in more sunshine, this is good in winter, spring and winter, however in summer less sun is a good thing (we have a gas heater)
Breeze: 20/20 will block some of the breeze which is not cool, also 20/20 will start to loosen up the screen faster since breeze doesn't move as freely through
Wild Card: No-see-ums ... if you have them you know what I mean, they are tiny bugs that bite.
- They can fit through 18/14 but not 20/20. If it wasn't for these bugs then 18/14 would be a no-brainer
- I haven't noticed them too much ... my fear is we will get the 18/14 and then notice that we have them
Tough decision, any advice?
