Replacing an Old Pool Cage in Cape Coral - Gulf Coast Aluminum

Replacing an Old Pool Cage in Cape Coral

This week, a client from Cape Coral wanted a brand new enclosure for their pool area so they called us to get the job done. Mr. and Ms. Nawrocki called us to build a new pool cage because they wanted to replace their old one, which looked like this:

It had rusty fasteners, faded paint, and frames blocking the view. But before we started building on-site, we first had to obtain the necessary 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. They also didn’t have to worry about the details because we have a dedicated project manager to handle it.

After settling the requirements, we headed on-site and got started. We first had to remove the old enclosure before installing the new structure. Most of the frames were prefabricated in our facility while the rest were done by site-specific cut and leveling. The new structure had a bronze 2604 Powder Coat Finish, which was meticulously applied to withstand the harsh Florida sun and other outdoor elements. 

To ensure the longevity and structural integrity of the pool cage, we used Blue-Tap Fasteners, which comes with a 10-year warranty, and Tapcons Tru-stainless lifetime warranty throughout the entire cage. For the screens, we used Super Screen 14/17, which also comes with a 10-year warranty. This mesh is three times stronger than the standard screen and can withstand strong wind pressure even when installed in large openings. This is suitable for this enclosure since we used a Clearview configuration of members to maximize the view. We also installed two 36×80 Clearview doors for a seamless look and a 7″ super gutter.

It took us less than two weeks to complete this project. If you’re wondering about the roof design, this is called a half mansard. Our client is glad that they now have an insect-free and brand new pool cage with no frames blocking the view.
