We recently completed an enclosure restoration project for a client in Fort Myers. Mr. Hight wanted to get his pool cage restored after noticing the rusty fasteners and stained frames, which you can see in the photo below:

To make it look brand new again, he availed our Value Restoration Package. This includes re-screening, replacing the fasteners, and repainting the entire cage using different materials to lower the project cost.

First, we made sure to cover the pool and deck with plastic to avoid getting debris or paint on them. We then removed and disposed of the screens before replacing the fasteners and repainting the pool cage. For the fasteners, we used ceramic-coated steel and then white Sherwin Williams DTM Tough Trim for the paint. Lastly, we installed Standard Phifer 18/14, a mesh that can withstand strong thunderstorm force winds for some time over 10 years. All screens are durable when it’s newly installed, but this mesh will only be easily tearable from a regular storm after 7 to 15 years.

Our efficient crew completed this project in less than a week. Mr. Hight is happy that his pool cage looks brand new again and that he won’t have to look at rusty fasteners and stained frames anymore.
