Thanks guys! What is Komatex? The only ones I've heard of are Gator-Board and Sintra. But then again, I built my last screen 3 years ago.

Sintra - american made closed cell expanded pvc foam board for sign making
Komatex - import made closed cell expanded pvs foam board for sign making

Komatex is a bit cheaper by a few dollars.

Is $63 a good price? Seems pretty fair to me. I'm going to use the border from my old screen so it should be a simple build. Just have to decide on the paint.
