Re-Building a Better Screen Enclosure in Naples

Nothing ever lasts forever…

That’s true for almost everything, even things that seem so permanent. And yes, that includes screen enclosures. Like your roof, gutters, windows, and every other part of your home, screen enclosures are sometimes better off replaced than repaired.

If you’ve lived in your home as long as our recent client has lived in theirs, you’d feel the same need to have the screen enclosure replaced. We replaced the entire enclosure without changing anything to the footprint, only to the appearance.

New Screen Enclosure with Clearview Picture Windows

As with projects like this, we made sure to acquire a permit before starting the project. A screen enclosure is made of large, heavy aluminum members that may be a real security hazard. This step takes the longest but we always make sure to adhere to current requirements for building these structures, and keep our customers safe.

We also took care of engineering the new enclosure to the custom size of our client’s home. We first installed a 7” Super Gutter along the side of the roof connecting to the enclosure. This prevents water from falling off the roof and pouring down the pool area.

After prefabricating the new aluminum members in our facility, we came back to our client’s home to set it up on-site. We used blue-tap fasteners and stainless tapcons to secure the members, and Superscreen 14/17 for the clearview walls. This screen provides the clearest view without compromising on quality and durability against strong winds or insects.

This enclosure includes an oversized door to the side for the entrance and exit.

We’re always happy to see our customers satisfied with our work and happy about their new screen enclosures.
