One of our most popular services here at Gulf Coast Aluminum is the Screen Enclosure Restoration.  In fact we usually complete 1 screen enclosure repaint per day (over 200 per year).  It consists of re-screening, repainting, and replacing all the fasteners.  This process which we have perfected, brings the enclosure to back to life with a finish that makes the whole enclosure look like new, for a about 1/2 the cost of a new enclosure.  Surprising to most people is that the acrylic paint we use in the process is a higher quality than the epoxy paint that comes standard on most builders grade enclosures (our new enclosures come with a 2604 powder coat).

We’ve done them on small enclosures, about 20 x 40, on up to screen enclosures the size of a stadium.  You can see one of the largest screen enclosures we’ve ever repainted here.  Today though we are going to be looking at a more modest size screen enclosure restoration.  This enclosure in Bonita Springs is roughly 20×40, a very common size.  For this post, I don’t have high-res pics in chronological order, so I’m going to make do with the pics various pics in our project file.

Here we go.  The first thing we do on the enclosure is strip the screen, and replace the fasteners.  When we replace the fasteners, we use Nylotech fasteners, which come with a 10yr manufacturers warranty.  This ensures no rust will build up under your new paint and bleed through.  The fasteners used are also colored to match the new paint which will notice on the photo below.

Notice the overall grey fade of this pool enclosure and corrosion along the bottom. At this point the screen has been stripped, the fasteners are replaced, and the enclosure has been power washed.

Once that complete it was time for the paint!  Unfortunately we didn’t get any pics of the paint work in progress.  This homeowner chose to go to white paint to go with their lighter shade pavers.  They chose a No-See-Um Screen mesh by Ultra Screen which carries a 10 year warranty.  Take a look at the finished product.  You’ll see the bright white enclosure, and notice that the view beyond the No See’um mesh isn’t really that diminished.

Another screen enclosure repaint complete!
