Newly Restored and Re-Engineered Enclosure In Estero

This week, we completed an enclosure restoration and picture window conversion project for a client in Estero. Ms. Klecan wanted to make her pool cage look brand new again and get rid of the frames blocking the view, so she called us to get the job done.

Our client availed of the Value Restoration Package, which includes re-screening, repainting, and replacing the fasteners throughout the entire cage using different materials to lower the project cost. For the picture window conversion, she upgraded to a Bronze Clearview Conversion where we re-engineered a part of the front wall, leaving a panel on each side as is.

But before we got started working on-site, we first had to prepare 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 settling the requirements, we got to work. We were able to convert the existing enclosure into a picture window by utilizing the existing vertical posts, dramatically increasing the structural integrity. To ensure the longevity of the structure, we used concrete fasteners with a lifetime warranty. 

Next, we continued with the restoration process. We removed the remaining mesh and replaced old and rusty fasteners. We upgraded all the fasteners to ceramic coated steel and then repainted the entire structure with bronze Sherwin Williams DTM Tough Trim. For the screens, we installed Superscreen 17/14. This mesh is three times stronger than the standard screen and can withstand strong gusts of wind even when installed in large openings.

Our efficient crew completed this project in less than two weeks. Ms. Klecan can now enjoy her insect-free enclosure and a view where there are no frames obstructing it.
