Transforming an Outdoor Pool Area with a Picture Window Enclosure in Naples

We’ve all had to spend most of our time at home this past year… You’re probably either so pumped to leave or you’ve started to notice every single thing that’s becoming an eyesore in your home.

One of them might be your pool enclosure. It’s one thing you probably haven’t thought about in years, but it gets old – the aluminum panels get damaged from the heat, fasteners are rusted, screens get holes, and the paint fades.

Not to mention, the structure might not be updated to the current requirements, which leaves it vulnerable during hurricane season.

BUT! It’s nothing a good complete restoration can’t fix.

Our client in Naples had all these problems. This is what their screen enclosure looked like before

They wanted a full lifetime restoration, including a clearview picture window conversion.

All they had to do is sit and wait…

After we secured the permit for the project, we immediately went to work.

This lifetime restoration included: repaint (a new bronze coat), rescreen, fastener replacement, and a picture window conversion.

Along the process, we also eliminated a design flaw on the header.

For the most load-bearing part of the enclosure, we upgraded it to the current wind code. This way, the structure could be extra sturdy and prevent grave damage during a hurricane.

This is just one project and just one restoration, but our clients’ home is transformed entirely. Now they can spend their time by the pool and feel like they’re somewhere else without leaving their home.
