Pool Cage Restoration And Picture Window Conversion In Estero

Are there frames blocking the view? We can convert existing pool cages into a picture window for the ultimate view!

Take a look at this project we completed for a client in Estero. After Mr. Wright saw our projects online, he called us to make his pool cage look brand new again and get rid of the frames obstructing the view. Here is what his old enclosure looked like:

He availed the Lifetime Restoration Package, so we re-screened, repainted using High solids Polyurethane 2 part epoxy far better than any factory, and upgraded the fasteners with lifetime warranty stainless steel tapcons with finish. These are top of the line material industry to ensure the longevity and structural integrity of the enclosure. For the picture window conversion, he chose the Silver Clearview Conversion, which includes re-engineering the front wall of the pool cage.

Before we started working on-site, we first had to prepare the permits and work on the engineering and site plans. We can efficiently get this process done and get permits faster than anyone else. 

This picture window has a span size of 66′ and we were able to convert the existing front wall of the structure into a clear view by utilizing the new vertical posts, dramatically increasing the structural integrity. For optimal strength and connection efficiency, we used solid, not stitched, vertical posts and #16 size fasteners.

After, we continued with the restoration process. We got rid and disposed of the remaining mesh of the structure. For the fasteners, we replaced the old and rusty ones with Blue-tap Nylotech and Stainless Pro-Tect Tapcons. Next, the enclosure is thoroughly cleaned and intricately prepped for painting for a lasting finish and to avoid overspray. We repainted the entire structure with bronze Sherwin Williams Hi-Solids Polyurethane, which was sprayed on electrostatically. Lastly, we re-screened with Superscreen, a mesh that is three times stronger than the standard screen and can withstand strong wind pressure even when installed in large openings.

Our efficient crew completed this project in less than two weeks. Mr. Wright can now enjoy the beautiful view without any frames obstructing it.
