3k seems like a no-brainer. Are they just screening in an existing deck - ie will you lose the deck?

$3000 sounds like a lot to screen an existing porch.
It must include some additional framing to accept screens.
I sure hope they are adding a nice screen door, too, and screening under the porch floor.

If the porch (and roof) are already there, then you can hold off. $3k seems high just for screens. $3k for the entire porch would be a steal, but it sounds like the expensive parts will already be there.

based on what I've seen, OP likely has a covered porch area on slab, they'll put in the wood framing, a door, and the screening.

If you want to wait a while to get the screening added, then install an exterior ceiling fan overhead. I use a ceiling fan on my front porch in the country when sitting outside at dusk or in the evening. It keeps all the winged bugs away, for obvious reasons, and is so pleasant when the air is humid and still.

Yes extra 3000$ is for screening for covered porch. Which they say includes frames, door and screen. So if this is the case 3k is too expensive?

It's probably an OK number for that. Is it a great deal, no, but I doubt someone could so it for less later unless it is really small.

Yes, with paddle fans and skylights so the interior is not dark. Sun is so strong it will age an uncovered deck quickly.
