Front Wall Conversion into Picture Window in Naples - Gulf Coast Aluminum

Front Wall Conversion into Picture Window in Naples

 A picture window conversion isn’t just all about the aesthetic. Transforming your enclosure into clear view is also a great way to strengthen its structure against damages.

This one is a pretty necessary measure especially that our area is frequented by hurricanes. No one wants the hassle to have their enclosure repaired after the hurricane season every single year.

For this particular project, our client decided to have the front wall of their pool enclosure converted into a clear view. To accomplish this, we first reconfigured the vertical posts of the front wall. Particularly we utilized solid (not stitched) vertical posts.

Having less aluminum posts decreased the probability of damage in case of a hurricane. In doing so, we updated the entire main load bearing wall to the current building code. 

After reconfiguring the vertical posts, we installed Super Screen 17/20 Tiny Insect Mesh for the new picture window. This particular mesh is the best choice to keep pesky insects out of your outdoor space without obstructing view or airflow, which is why this is an industry-leading choice for outdoor enclosures.

To top that, with its 10-year warranty, you are guaranteed that you won’t be needing to re-screen your enclosure for a long time. Lastly, we used #16 fasteners for optimal strength and connection efficiency. 

 Look at how drastically the transformation improved the visual appeal of the whole space, and that’s just the front wall. Imagine having all the walls transformed into a clear view and how magnificent that would look.
