Brand New-Looking Pool Cage With The Ultimate View For Cape Coral Homeowner

This week, we completed an enclosure restoration and picture window conversion for a client in Cape Coral. After Mr. Rainey saw our projects online, he called us to make his pool cage look brand new again and re-engineer it for the ultimate view.

Here’s what his old enclosure looked like. To make it look brand new again, he availed the Lifetime Restoration Project, so we re-screened, repainted using High solids Polyurethane 2 part epoxy far better than any factory, and replaced the fasteners of the entire enclosure with lifetime warranty stainless steel tapcons with finish. For the picture window conversion, we re-engineered almost all the walls of the structure.

Before we headed on-site, we first had to prepare the permits and work on the engineering and site plans. We can efficiently get this process done and get permits faster than anyone else. After acquiring the permits, we started with the picture window conversion.

We were able to convert the front wall and left return wall of the structure into a clear view by utilizing new vertical posts, dramatically increasing the structural integrity. We used solid and not stitched vertical posts as well as #16 size fasteners for optimal strength and connection efficiency.

Next, we continued with the restoration process. After removing and disposing of the remaining mesh in the enclosure, we replaced the fasteners. We used Blue-tap Nylotech and Stainless Pro-Tect Tapcons to ensure the structural integrity and longevity of the enclosure. We then repainted with white Sherwin Williams Hi-Solids Polyurethane, which was sprayed on electrostatically. Lastly, we re-screened with Superscreen, a mesh that is three times stronger than the standard screen. It can also withstand strong gusts of wind even when installed in large openings, which is suitable for this structure since we used a Clearview configuration of members.

We completed this project in less than two weeks. Our client can now enjoy the view in his brand new-looking pool cage since there are no more frames blocking it.
