For this enclosure restoration project, our team went ahead and converted all the existing front walls of the screen enclosure to Clear view along with some new vertical posts. The homeowner chose a beautiful white color for this restoration project (to cover the 51” span size of the area).

The entire main load-bearing wall is updated to meet the current building code. We also eliminated the pre-fabricated design flaw of 1"x2" on the header. Additionally, our team used solid, not stitched vertical posts. Fewer aluminum members on the enclosure decrease the probability of damage in a hurricane-prone region, such as Florida.

Note: This project also covered the necessary engineering site plans & permitting requirements. After doing more than a hundred pool enclosure projects, our team at Gulf Coast Aluminum can efficiently get this process done and get permits faster than anyone else.

Project Specifications

  • Re-screen: Rescreen with SuperScreen 17/14
  • Fasteners: Replace All Fasteners with lifetime warranty stainless steel
  • Repaint of Aluminum structure makes the old enclosure look new with Sherwin Williams Hi-Solids Polyurethane sprayed on electrostatically

To make the pool enclosure look brand new once again, we also included our Lifetime Restoration Package. This involves re-screening, replacing the fasteners with lifetime warranty stainless steel, and repainting using Sherwin Williams Hi-Solids Polyurethane sprayed on electrostatically.

We also upgraded to a Silver Clearview Conversion to convert the entire front wall into a picture window (in the same white color). With the sleek lines and fewer pieces of aluminum, pool enclosures with picture windows give you a clear view without all the metal. Lastly, we also included a 5” splash guard in the color white.

Take advantage of our lifetime restoration package if you plan to have your pool enclosure restored. Our team at Gulf Coast Aluminum can help you enjoy your outdoor area for a very long time after the restoration.
