Do you want to extend your outdoor living space? Check out this new enclosure we installed for a client in Punta Gorda. Their under truss lanai area was not enough, so with this new structure, they can now add more furniture and invite more people for cookouts or parties!

But before we started building on-site, we first prepared the permits and worked on the engineering and site plans. After doing more than a hundred pool enclosure projects, we can efficiently get this process done and get permits faster than anyone else. They also didn’t have to worry about this part of the project since we have a dedicated project manager handling these matters.

After settling the requirements, we headed on-site. Before we built the 15 x 39 screen enclosure, we installed a concrete slab and structural concrete, which was broom swept. For the structure, most of the frames were prefabricated in our facility while the rest were made by site-specific laser cut and leveling. We also used bronze 2604 Powder Coat Finish, which can withstand the harsh Florida sun and other outdoor elements.

To ensure the structural integrity and longevity of the enclosure, we used Blue-Tap fasteners, which come with a 10-year warranty, and Tapcons Tru-stainless with a lifetime warranty. We then screened it in with Superscreen 14/17, which also comes with a 10-year warranty. This mesh is three times stronger than the standard screen and can withstand strong gusts of wind even when installed in large openings. This is suitable for this structure since we used an all Clearview configuration for the ultimate view. We also installed two 36″ x 80″ doors and a 7″ super gutter. If you’re wondering about the type of roof, this is a half mansard that is 3′ tall.

Our efficient crew completed this project in one week. Now, our client has an outdoor area where they can relax in, with more space and free of pesky bugs.
