With the summer weather still ongoing in Southwest Florida, most of our clients actively use their pools. So for the last week of August, we were hired to make their pool enclosures look brand new since they still have a month to enjoy the Florida sun.

Aside from restoring their pool enclosures, our clients also availed our picture window conversion service because they wanted to maximize their view.

We also received a quick service call and a request for a screen-in. Continue reading to find out more details about this week’s featured projects.

Pool Cage Restoration with Picture Window Conversion in Cape Coral

After seeing our pool enclosure restoration projects on Facebook, a client in Cape Coral wanted to get the same service for their pool enclosure.

Mr. Nadziejko availed our Value Package which includes re-screening, fastener replacement, and repainting the entire enclosure with cost-efficient materials.

Before we started, we first covered the pool area with plastic to avoid getting paint or debris on any surface or in the pool. You’ll see how we covered it on the left side of the picture above. We first removed the screen so it will be easier to paint the frames. The paint we used for this cage is a water-based acrylic paint that is corrosion-resistant.

If you check the photo on the lower-left corner, that’s the new fasteners (4000hr ceramic-coated steel) we installed. After, we installed Standard Phifer 18/14 screens throughout the entire enclosure.

Our client also hired us for picture window conversion and he availed the Bronze Package. With this package, a portion of one side is re-engineered to maximize the view. You’ll see what it looks like in the photo below.

Doesn’t it look better without the frames obstructing the view?

Service Call Handled With Ease in Naples

This week, we went to Naples for a quick service call.

Our client Ms. Look asked us to replace her screens because a golf ball made holes on some of her panels. Aside from tears, her steel cables which are used for additional support were also broken. These cables are important because some pool cages need them for stability, so it won’t sway side to side. Her cable corroded and snapped because it wasn’t able to handle the tension.

So we replaced the cable and a few panels. Our client is happy that we got the job done in less than a day.

Restoring a Pool Enclosure and Picture Window Conversion

Another pool cage restoration project we did this week was for a client in Naples.

Isn’t it annoying when frames like the ones above obstruct your view? That’s why Mr. and Ms. Wilson also hired us to convert their existing enclosure to have a picture window. They loved the after photos of our picture window projects that they wanted to get it done on top of the restoration.

They availed our Gold Package Clearview Conversion which re-engineers all sides of the pool cage to maximize the view. Since we changed the structure, we had to get a permit and engineer-approved plans. Because we have done more than a hundred of these projects, we already know the most efficient way to get this process done. Once it was approved, we immediately got to work.

For the restoration, our client availed the Lifetime Package which includes repainting, and screen and fastener replacement with better materials that comes with a longer warranty. We painted their entire pool enclosure with Hi-Solid Polyurethane with an electrostatic charge which is more efficient to use on metal surfaced. For the fasteners, we replaced them with the durable Nylo-tec model which also comes with a 10-year warranty. After, we rescreened all the panels with a Superscreen 14/16.

Our efficient crew took less than a week to get this job done. This pool cage now looks brand new and has a great view.

Under-truss Lanai Screen-in for a Homeowner in Fort Myers

A client in Fort Myers hired us to screen-in their under-truss lanai this week.

Most of the under-truss lanais of homeowners in Florida are built without screens. So our client asked us to get the job done so they can get a new space in their home that is insect-free. It also serves as a transition space to prevent bugs from entering homes and pets from escaping.

We used Superscreen 14/16 mesh which is great for large openings and can withstand the wind pressure without tearing. It’s 3x stronger than the standard screen and it doesn’t have cross members to maximize the view.

Now that bugs won’t be able to invade their space, our client can lounge in it or eat outdoors while enjoying the fresh air and view.
