Rescreening and Converting A Pool Cage In Fort Myers Into A Picture Window

Do you want to get rid of the frames obstructing your view? We can convert existing pool cages into a picture window for the ultimate view. Check out this project we completed in Fort Myers. 

To maximize his view, Mr. Gaarder chose our Silver Clearview Conversion, so we re-engineered the entire front wall of his enclosure. But before we got started with the picture window process, we first needed to prepare the 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 acquiring the permits, we headed to his home. This picture window has a span size of 50′ and we were able to convert it into a clear view by utilizing new vertical posts, dramatically increasing the structural integrity. For optimal strength and connection efficiency, we used solid and not stitched vertical posts as well as #16 size fasteners.

Our client also wanted to replace the screens of his entire pool cage. So we removed and disposed of the old mesh. For this full rescreening, we used Super Screen 17/14 polyester, which is a mesh that is three times stronger than the standard screen and comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty. It is also suitable for the new configuration since it can withstand strong gusts of wind even when installed in large openings. We also replaced the unleveled roof section, making it all flush to match the walls.

We completed this project in a week. Now, our client has a newly re-screened pool cage with a Clear View front wall. No need to worry about bugs as he enjoys the unobstructed view.
