Aluminum Screen Enclosure Removal


I want to remove my old aluminum screen enclosure. Where do I start? Can I get instructions anywhere? It's very old and an eyesore, screens are all missing. It's quite large about 1700 square feet and has a flat top.Thanks

A razor knife should get the screen out of the way, a screw gun, sawzall, hammer and a flat bar should do it.

Hard to tell you much more without seeing it. Post some pictures.

Btw... Welcome to the forum.

What he said. Most fasteners are probably rusted/corroded solid, so sawzall, hammer/chisel, etc., is a must.

Scrap aluminum prices are at an all time high so consider taking the material to a recycling center and get a few bucks.

Remove the roof first!

Hack it apart with a sawzall. As said roof first.
