Traditional Pool Cage in Miromar Lakes Gets Transformed Into a Picture Window

Your home should be a place of comfort and safety, and that includes the exterior of your home.

Your screen enclosure is still very much a big part of your home, and you shouldn’t feel cramped in it nor should it be a safety risk for your family.

A traditional pool cage with several aluminum members is an old design that no longer works for some homeowners, especially since it can make you feel like you’re in a cage. Plus, it also poses a higher risk for damage during hurricanes.

A picture window is a lot safer with minimal vertical posts, and it looks nicer because of the bigger and clearer outdoor view.

Knowing this, our client in Miromar Lakes had us change the front wall of their enclosure with a clearview picture window.

In the process, we were able to eliminate the design flaw on the header and updated the load bearing wall to the current building code. This means the new picture window is very equipped to handle strong winds or thunderstorms.

We also used solid material for the vertical posts, making them even more sturdy than having several aluminum members supporting the wall.

Our client can now enjoy the clear view of the lake outside their home and feel safer knowing their screen enclosure is not a safety risk and can last years and years.
