Muskoka rooms and screen porches of the past were inherently open spaces with a fixed screen that kept bugs out, but not much else.
Because they were never enclosed, these older structures will often have areas that have degraded due to extensive exposure to moisture.
“Back then it wasn’t a concern, because it was basically a deck with some outdoor furniture and you would simply replace a few boards now and then,” says Kevin Cardwell of Muskokify. “A quality fixed screen kept the bugs out for three seasons and that’s all people needed.”
However, Muskoka rooms aren’t what they used to be. Now they’re high-end extensions of your home or cottage that provide the extra space needed for growing families and four-season residences. Often, they’ll contain valuable furniture, decorations, and even entertainment systems.
“You have tens of thousands of dollars invested in creating a wonderful space for family and friends to gather in,” says Kevin. “Now you have to protect these rooms from rain, snow and animals. Luckily there are excellent options from Sunspace to do just that.”
Having spent decades sourcing the best screens, shutters, railings, and pergolas for their clients, Muskokify is the new authorized Sunspace dealer in Muskoka.
Sunspace window products or modular wall systems can be installed directly onto existing patios, decks and even under previously constructed roofs, upgrading the old Muskoka room to a three- or four-season room.
“These products are especially beneficial for those wanting to transform their Muskoka room or covered porch,” says Kevin. “Sunspace products really enhance outdoor living areas. They have several models with many customizable features, allowing us to fully support our client’s needs.”
Sunspace sunrooms and wall systems can be customized to any need. Most popular for Muskoka rooms are vinyl windows and screens, with tempered glass panels on the bottom that act as a barrier or railing.
Custom elements include colours, materials, and more. Everything is fabricated in a temperature-controlled environment to ensure the highest quality of craftsmanship, says Kevin.
If Sunspace products aren’t exactly right for your project, no worries: Muskokify provides plenty of other options including fixed screens, motorized screens, large opening manual screens, and much more.
Kevin and his team understand the versatility required to meet the needs of a diverse clientele and will help you find the best product for your space.
“We can recommend the right fit to help you fully enjoy every part of your home or cottage.”
