In selecting this curtain type, you need to consider the breathing ability, UV resistance, water resistance, and colorfastness. For summer, you might need a curtain that could let the air pass freely.
In this case, you need fabric with high breathing ability. Those with low breathing ability will block the air, make the curtain damp, and later allow mold and mildew to grow.
On the other hand, your screen porch needs a pairing with high water resistant in rainy season. This will be back side of breathing ability.
High breathing ability means low water resistant, and vice versa. Outdoor also automatically calls for sunlight and heat. Therefore, you may consider to have curtain with UV resistance, which will stand longer under sun light.
Since people love fabric curtain because of its color and pattern, check again its colorfastness. It defines how long a fabric could keep its bright color under the snow, rain and sun. The higher the rating, the better.
If you appreciate the view from your screen porch, then keep it that way. Vinyl curtain might be the best choice for you. Don’t worry about the custom size of your porch.
Many curtain services would be happy to cut the vinyl based on the size of your porch. In fact, you could also install the vinyl curtain by yourself just within five to six hours.

When it is time to install the curtain, the staff might offer you two kind of mounting: velcro mount (fixed) and track mount (retractable). The velcro mount will make use of marine snap and L screws. Most costumers choose this mounting over the track mount.
