Rescreening an Undertruss in Sanibel - Gulf Coast Aluminum

Rescreening an Undertruss in Sanibel

A client from Sanibel wanted to enjoy the cool breeze in their undertruss without worrying about bugs. Mr. Henry was relaxing in his balcony when he noticed insects invading his space, so he called us to screen-in his undertruss lanai.

When we got on-site, we headed to his balcony which is located on the second story. Next, we removed the cable railing or the fall protection that was installed. We then mounted our screen, specifically Superscreen, then put it back in place. This mesh works for large openings and is more durable than the standard screen. We could have installed the screen from the outside, but it would make it difficult to re-screen this undertruss in the future. Although, they won’t have to worry about this for a long time because the screen we installed is durable. Screens also last longer in an undertruss because they are not exposed to direct sunlight and experience less wind than enclosures. Pool cages are exposed to the sun the whole day and experience wind from all directions.

The screen may also look dark from the outside, but it still looks clear from the inside. You can see this in the after photos. Our efficient crew was able to complete this project in less than a day. Now our client gets to enjoy this view and the nice summer breeze without worrying about those pesky bugs.
