Restoring and Maximizing the View of an Enclosure in Fort Myers

Another enclosure restoration and picture window conversion project we completed this week was for a client in Fort Myers. But what’s different is that Ms. Adelizzi availed our Lifetime Restoration Package. We will also re-screen, repaint, and replace the fasteners, but we will be using better materials that come with a longer warranty. For the picture window, she availed our Bronze Picture Window Conversion Package, which includes converting a portion of the front wall into a picture window.

Our client hired us to restore her enclosure because this is what it looked like. The paint was chipping, fasteners were rusty, and overall, it has become an eyesore. But before we can start working on it, we first needed to prepare the permits and work on the engineering and site plans. We handle this process efficiently and can get permits faster than anyone else, so our client doesn’t have to wait that long nor worry about the details.

After settling everything, we start with the picture window project. We first covered the pool and deck area with plastic to protect it from paint and debris. Then for the construction part, we mostly prefabricate the frames in our shop and then bring it on-site. After installation, we continue with the restoration process. We replaced all the fasteners with Nylotec, which is a durable model that comes with a 10-year warranty. Next, we apply Hi-solid Polyurethane with an electrostatic charge all over the structure. It’s more efficient to use this paint for metal surfaces. Once it dries, we replaced the screen with Superscreen 14/16. This mesh is 3x stronger than the standard screen and would last against strong gusts of wind without tearing.

We completed the project in two weeks, and our client is glad that her pool cage isn’t an eyesore anymore. Doesn’t it look great? It has fresh paint, durable fasteners, new screens, and no bugs – looks and works like new!
