screening in an existing patio
 
Hello this is my first post and I have a few questions. I just bought my first house. I was thinking of screening in the exusting patio. The patio has a concrete floor and a roof already there and measures 1018 with a 8 foot roof.

I was wondering if this job could easily be done and if there are any kits out there that would have what I need or if this is a job for a contractor. I'm workibg 6+7 days a week so I don't have much time to do the job on my own.

Also what do you guys think it would cost to do this job?

Post some pictures of the structure.
There's another guy doing a screened porch. Try doing a search.
How the screened enclosure is designed will determine cost as well as the materials used. There are many companies that make screen porch kits of runnerer and covers. Try doing a search and see what you get.
You'll need a specific plan before you can estimate the cost of the materials.
