To install screening, add rails into a wood deck or use concrete fasteners for a concrete deck. Use the rails to frame the screening by wrapping it around the rails or threading the screening through fasteners on the rails. When installing mesh-count screening options, first choose the weight of the screening. The lower the number on the mesh, the more space there is between the squares of the mesh. Choose a smaller mesh count for a rustic look or a higher number for invisible mesh.

Mechanical screens require beams and a lattice roof for support and have the option of having a screen mesh door or a regular door depending on the amount of protection desired. Mechanical screens come in motorized versions, as well. When using blinds as screening, consider installing them around a screen. Use a material of your choice, such as bamboo or woven wood. This type of screen blocks out sunlight when unrolled and closed, but it rolls up for full sun exposure or loosens at various degrees for controlled sun exposure.
