Default Bird cage screen replacement

We are at the 10 year mark and wish to do budget planning. Anyone have this done. I can’t find any cost estimates.

We have a 9 x 15 screened in patio. We just had all the screen replaced including the door and all window screens throughout the house. Cost was $ 470 + $20 tip each to two workers.

Karostay, check to see if a canvas covering can actually be installed where the screening is mounted. Canvas is much thicker than screening, and it may nor be practical to do this. A couple of neighbors had canvas installed, and in both cases, the installer had a steel (this rusts) frame installed over top of the aluminum birdcage frame. Since I do not have first hand experience, I cannot comment further on provide suitable vendors.
