Are there frames blocking your view? Do you want to move the enclosure’s door to a different spot? Check out this project we completed this week! Ms. Jenkins wanted to replace her old enclosure and move the door to the end of the pool cage instead of the front, so we got the job done.

Before we started working on-site, we first had to prepare the permits and work 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. Our client also doesn’t have to worry about anything else because we have a dedicated project manager handling these matters.

After acquiring the permits, we got started with replacing the existing enclosure with no change to the footprint. Most of the frames were prefabricated in our facility while the rest were done using site-specific layer cut and leveling. The structure has a white 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 comes with a 10-year warranty, and Tapcons Tru-stainless, which comes with a lifetime warranty. We then used 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 wind pressure even when installed in large openings. It is suitable for this new enclosure since we used a Clearview configuration of members for the ultimate view.

The door of the pool cage was originally on the front. For the new enclosure, our client asked us to transfer it to the end. We also upgraded the door to a Clear View 36″ x 80″ door. If you are wondering about the roof, the design is called a half mansard.

It took us one week to complete this project. Our client can enjoy the beautiful view now that there are no more frames blocking it. With the materials we used, she also won’t have to worry about a re-screen or upgrade for a long time.
