Newly Restored and Converted Pool Cage in Estero - Gulf Coast Aluminum

Newly Restored and Converted Pool Cage in Estero

Does your pool cage look like an eyesore? We can make it look brand new again, just like this enclosure we recently restored for a client in Estero. Aside from the restoration, Ms. Tewey also wanted to maximize the view, so converted her pool cage into a picture window.

Our client availed the Silver Clearview Conversion, which is re-engineering a part of the front wall for the ultimate view, along with the Lifetime Restoration Package. This includes rescreening, repainting using High solids Polyurethane 2 part epoxy far better than any factory, and replacing the fasteners with lifetime warranty stails steel tapcons with finish.

Before we got to work on-site, we first had to obtain permits and work on the engineering and site plans. After doing more than a hundred pool enclosure projects, we can efficiently get this process done and get permits faster than anyone else.

After getting the necessary permits, we head to their home. We prefabricated most of the frames in our shop and we were able to convert the existing screen enclosure wall into Clearview utilizing existing vertical posts, dramatically increasing the structural integrity. This picture window has a span size of 38’, with a 10-year manufacturer warranty on the clear view screen and lifetime warranty on the concrete fasteners.

Next, we got to the restoration process. We stripped the rest of the enclosure’s screens and disposed of them. To ensure the longevity and structural integrity of the enclosure, all of the old and rusty fasteners were upgraded to Blue-tap Nylotech and Stainless Pro-Tect Tapcons, which also come with a 10-year warranty. Then we thoroughly cleaned and intricately prepped the structure for repainting to avoid overspray and provide a lasting finish. We used Sherwin Williams Hi-Solids Polyurethane, which was sprayed on electrostatically and meticulously to withstand the harsh Florida sun and other outdoor elements. 

For the screens, we used Superscreen 17/20 No-See-Um. It looks darker because it is thicker and tighter than the standard screen, but as you can see in the after photo above, the outward visibility is not affected.

We completed this project in less than two weeks. Our client is glad that her pool cage looks great again and has no more frames blocking the view.
