Another enclosure restoration project we completed this week is for a client in Naples. It had rusty fasteners, moldy frames, and chipped paint, so he called us to make it look brand new again.

He availed of our Value Restoration Package, which includes rescreening, replacing the fasteners, and repainting using standard industry materials to lower the cost of the project.

The first thing we did when we got on-site was to cover the deck and pool with plastic. We then stripped and disposed of the old mesh before replacing the fasteners. To ensure the structural integrity and longevity of the enclosure, we used ceramic-coated steel fasteners. Next, we repainted the entire structure with Bronze Sherwin Williams DTM Tough Trim. Lastly, we screened most of the pool cage with Standard Phifer 18/14.

We used a different screen for the 13’ return wall, as seen in the photo above. This is Florida Glass, which has a vinyl-like laminate and is water-resistant. It can help keep out dirt and debris as well as give our client a little more privacy. We also painted their railing bronze, giving the entire area a seamless look.

It took us one week to complete this project. Our client is glad that his pool cage doesn’t look like an eyesore anymore. He can now lounge in his pool area without worrying about pesky bugs, rusty fasteners, and moldy frames.
