Restoring and Custom Picture Window for a Large Enclosure in Naples

Isn’t this pool cage huge? Take a look at how big it is compared to our crew. This was a large enclosure we restored and re-engineered for maximum view.

This week, we completed an enclosure restoration and picture window conversion project for a client in Naples. Finding a company to restore such a large pool cage is difficult, so Mr. Bartakovits was glad when he found our website. He called and got his project scheduled.

He availed our Lifetime Restoration Package with a custom picture window conversion. This includes rescreening, repainting, and replacing the fasteners with better materials that come with a longer warranty as well as a custom conversion since the size of his picture window was 216”.

Before we head to his home, we first had to prepare the permits and work on the engineering and site plans. We’ve done more than a hundred of these projects, so we can easily handle this process as well as get permits faster than anyone else. 

After settling the permits, we got started with the picture window conversion process. Most of the frames were prefabricated in our shop, so we brought them on-site and worked on the conversion. Next, we worked on the restoration process. The first step was removing the screens and then replacing all the fasteners with Nylotec. This is a durable fastener that comes with a 10-year warranty. We then repainted the entire structure with Hi-solid Polyurethane with an electrostatic charge. Lastly, we rescreened all the panels with Superscreen 14/16. This mesh can withstand strong gusts of winds for a long time and is suitable for large openings.

It took our crew two weeks to get the job done. Our client was happy that we were able to make his large pool cage look brand new again and remove the frames to maximize the view.
