Transforming your pool cage into picture windows allows you to take in the views of the outdoors more– the lake, the verdant surroundings, and more! No more having to settle with traditional screen enclosure frames that notoriously limit and obstruct your everyday view. Although there are fewer beams used, you can count on it to be as durable as a traditional pool enclosure.

Homeowners from Naples, Florida asked our expert team at GCA to convert the existing front wall of their screen enclosure to Silver Clear View with new vertical posts.

Important note: This project also required us to secure the necessary engineering permits. At GCA, we’ll take this burden off your shoulders to ensure a hassle-free picture window conversion project!

Project Specifications

  • The entire main load-bearing wall was updated to the current building code
  • We eliminated the prefabricated design flaw (measuring 1"x2") on the header
  • We utilized solid instead of stitched vertical posts
  • Fewer aluminum members decrease the probability of damage in a hurricane-prone region, such as Florida

At the last minute, the homeowners wanted a change. They wanted to convert both the return walls to a Clear View configuration– meaning the entire enclosure will be a picture window configuration.

You can count on our team at GCA to cater to impromptu changes like these, as we are dedicated to customizing the design to fit all your needs. Featuring a State-of-the-Art modern design to ensure a strong, supportive structure, converting your existing screen enclosure to picture windows allows you to maximize your daily views and increase the value of your home.
