Does your pool cage look like this?

This is what the pool cage of a client from Fort Myers looked like before we worked on it. It had rusty fasteners, faded paint, and discolored frames. To make it look brand new again, Mr. McBride called us to restore it. He availed our Lifetime Restoration Package, which includes re-screening, repainting using High solids Polyurethane 2 part epoxy far better than any factory, and replacing the fasteners with lifetime warranty stails steel tapcons with finish. These are better materials that come with a longer warranty.

We first covered the deck and pool with plastic to prevent getting paint drops or debris on them. We then removed and disposed of the old screens. Next, we replaced all the old and rusted fasteners with Blue-tap Nylotech and Stainless Pro-Tect Tapcons. This is a durable fastener that comes with a 10-year warranty, ensuring longevity and structural integrity of the enclosure.

Before we started painting, we first cleaned and intricately prepped the pool cage for a lasting finish and to avoid overspray. For this project, we used bronze Sherwin Williams Hi-Solids Polyurethane, which was sprayed on electrostatically. Lastly, we rescreened all the panels with Superscreen 17/20 or No-See-Um. The client upgraded to this mesh, which is thicker and tighter than a standard screen. It looks darker but this doesn’t affect the outward visibility. We also installed a 6″ splash guard on the entire supergutter and replaced the Florida Glass on the return walls below the chair rail, as seen in the photo above. Florida Glass is water-resistant and vinyl-laminated which helps keep out the dirt and debris and provides a little more privacy.

Our efficient crew completed this project in one week. Mr. McBride is happy that his pool cage isn’t an eyesore anymore and looks brand new again!
