•        Low cost, usually a third the cost of wood frame

Are there options on the screen used?

Yes

•        18/14 mesh      Fiberglass screen, standard screen for enclosures

Do you sub-contract out the job?

We use our own trained Aluminum Fabricators. This is a  must for job quality.

Can I still tan inside a pool enclosure?

Yes, the screen only blocks a small amount of the suns rays. If you would like to block a little more
of the sun we can install a finer mesh screen (20/20 mesh).

If I have a lot of trees around will that keep me from being able to have a pool enclosure?

No, we can build a gable or gable/hip style to limit the leaves from accumulating on top.
If you have pine trees near by we can install 20/20 mesh screen on top to limit the needles from
poking through.

What are the advantages of a pool enclosure over just a fence around the pool?

•        Protection from young kids getting in the pool area (kids can climb over fences)
•        Reduced chemical costs, due to less debris in the pool
•        Keeps out insects, you can enjoy the outdoors more
•        Pool liners and pool interiors last longer
•        No cleaning the pool prior to swimming due to leafs or dead bugs
•        Less water evaporation thus saving on the water bill
•        Restrict foreign matter staining the interior of the pool and the deck
•        Spend time swimming not cleaning

Are they built to with stand high winds?

All structures are engineered and built to Florida code. Some up to 150mph wind speed.


We have a screen room but can’t use it when the rain is blowing in or a cold breeze is present,
what can we do?

We offer a vinyl glaze window unit that can be installed inside the framing of the screen room.
Comes in a vertical 4 track 4 vent units or a 2 track 2 vent side slider unit. Use the room as a screen
room the majority of the time but when the weather gets bad close the windows.


I would like to build it myself; do you sell screen room kits?

Yes. Just furnish us a size and we can work you up a price
