Last week, we restored the pool cage of a client in Cape Coral. After Mr. and Ms. Dirkmaat saw our enclosure restoration projects online, they called us to make their pool cage look brand new again.

They availed our Lifetime Restoration Package, so we re-screened, replaced the fasteners of the entire enclosure with lifetime warranty stails steel tapcons with finish, and repainted with High solids Polyurethane 2 part epoxy, which is far better than any factory. These are better materials that come with a longer warranty.

Before we got started with the restoration process, we first covered the entire pool and deck area with plastic. We then removed and disposed of the old screen. The next step was replacing all the fasteners. We used the Blue-tap Nylotech and Stainless Pro-Tect Tapcons. This is a durable fastener that comes with a 10-year warranty. For the paint, we used bronze Sherwin Williams Hi-Solids Polyurethane, which was sprayed on electrostatically. This was meticulously applied to withstand the harsh Florida sun and other elements. Lastly, we installed Superscreen 14/16, a mesh that can withstand strong wind pressure without tearing.

We completed this project in one week. Our client is happy that their pool cage looks brand new again. With the materials we used, they won’t need an upgrade for a long time and they can be assured of the longevity and structural integrity of their enclosure.
