Maximizing the View and Restoring an Enclosure in Fort Myers

Another enclosure restoration project we completed this week was for a client in Fort Myers. Mr. Ryan wanted to make his pool cage look new again and when looking online, he found our website. He called and availed our Lifetime Restoration Package and Silver Clearview Conversions. This includes a repaint, re-screen, and fastener replacement using better materials that come with a longer warranty as well as re-engineering his entire front wall for maximum view.

This is what his old pool cage looked like. It had rusty fasteners, fading paint, and stains all over the structure. Aside from restoring, he also wanted to remove the frames obstructing the view. But before we can start with the picture window conversion process, we first had to prepare the permits, engineering, and site plans. Since we have done more than a hundred of these projects, we were able to efficiently get this process done and get permits faster than anyone else.

After getting permits approved, we head on to their home. We already prefabricated most of the frames in our shop. But before getting started, we first covered the entire pool area with plastic to avoid getting paint or debris on it. After converting their picture window with a span size of 43′, we continue on the restoration part of the project.

We removed the screens and replaced all the fasteners with Nylotec, a durable fastener with a 10-year warranty. Next, we repainted the entire structure with Hi-solid Polyurethane with an electrostatic charge. Once it dried up, we rescreened using Superscreen 14/16, which is a mesh that is 3x stronger than the standard screen.

We completed this project in two weeks. Our client can now enjoy the great view in a brand new-looking pool cage. He won’t have to worry about bugs, rusty fasteners, damaged screens, and fading paint for a long time.
