I was wondering if anyone could tell me if a 10 1/2 foot wide section of screening is too wide for a single section in a screened porch. We are hoping to have a 21' x 14' porch with just 1 beam in the middle of the 21' side. We have heard about the screen-tite system --- do you know if this would hold up as a 10 1/2 foot section?

What concerns me is the 10&1/2 foot span that you will have if you live in snow country. This will require large structural support for the load.
The span is not too large for the screens if the supports are rigid and held tightly all around. Self-replacement of the screen material will be a real bear at this size. Good Luck!!!
