Screening in an existing porch

I plan to screen in an existing porch on a new house. The area is a treated lumber deck with a roof extending from the house. (see photos). My questions are these; what is the best way to screen the area? i have seen the screen-tight kits at Lowes and HD, but have not been impressed. I'd like to keep the cost down and do it myself, but want to make sure I do it right. Also, what is the best screening material to use; fiberglass or aluminum screen. Which is easier and which provideds the best results?

no response in a year?? I am interested in doing a similar project; instead of a deck we have a concrete porch with a roof over it.

Did you ever complete this?
