Making an Enclosure in Fort Myers Look Brand New Again

Has your pool cage become an eyesore? Take a look at this enclosure we restored for a client in Fort Myers. Here is what it looked like before our restoration process:

It had rusty fasteners, moldy frames, and chipped paint. To make it look brand new again, our client availed of our Value Restoration Package. So we re-screened, repainted, and replaced the fasteners using standard industry materials to lower the project cost.

Before we started, we first covered the pool and deck with plastic to prevent getting debris or paint on them. Next, we stripped and disposed of the old mesh. For the fasteners, we used ceramic-coated steel, and then thoroughly cleaned and intricately prepped the structure for painting.

Our client wanted to change the color of their enclosure from white to bronze. We meticulously applied Sherwin Williams DTM Tough Trim, to avoid overspray and for a lasting finish. Lastly, we screened the entire enclosure with Standard Phifer 18/14. This mesh can withstand strong thunderstorm force winds for some time over 10 years. All screens are durable when it’s newly installed, but this mesh will only be easily tearable from a regular storm after 7 to 15 years.

It took us one week to complete the project. Our client can now enjoy their brand new-looking pool cage, free of bugs, rusty fasteners, and moldy frames.
