Converting a Traditional Pool Cage Into a Picture Window in Fort Myers - Gulf Coast Aluminum

Converting a Traditional Pool Cage Into a Picture Window in Fort Myers

Don’t let your beautiful outdoor views go to waste. Your pool cage is only supposed to keep your home clean and protected from pests and other external factors, but it shouldn’t make you feel caged in or trapped inside.

Our client in Fort Myers had some nice views from their pool area, but they couldn’t really appreciate it with the aluminum members disrupting the view.

They called us for a picture window conversion. We converted the entire existing front wall of their enclosure into a clear view screen with new vertical posts and an oversized header beam. This ensures the main part carrying the most load of the enclosure is updated to the current building code.

We took care of everything, including acquiring the permits needed to perform this conversion and engineering fees.

Bigger fasteners were also used for optimal strength. Less vertical posts also meant they wouldn’t be at a big risk for damage during a hurricane. They’re made of solid material and are not stitched to ensure strength.

Our client was happy with the end result. It’s definitely made the space look bigger and more open.
