screened porch bug proof floor materials

GCNC's picture

Hi All

I am looking for ideas and opinions on bug proofing a floor on a screened in porch. We are adding the roof and walls to an existing deck with treated 2+6 floor. Ideas include ply, indoor outdoor carpet, ect. What do you all prefer?

On our screened porch we put lattice around the bottom.  I bought some nylon screen and stapled it to the backside of the lattice.  Worked just fine.  On another house we had a screened porch with 2x6 PT for the floors with no type of bug proofing underneath.  I guess the floor boards were close enough that bugs didn’t come up thru the gaps.  Never had a problem with that one either.
