The average cost our company has experienced in the last few years has been in the $8,000 to $10,000 range which is based on 20 x 40 pool deck with a dome-style roof.

Pool Screen Enclosure Designs and Options
You have the choice of a pool enclosure that attaches to your home or stands alone as its own unit. You can also choose a basic enclosure that covers just the pool itself and doesn’t provide an enclosed space for the patio or the deck.
The screen enclosure roof varies depending on your preference; it can have a flat design or interesting peaks and gables for more visual appeal. The majority of pool enclosures we build are domed shaped. However, you can also have the pool enclosure built with a hip or mansard roof, also known as a French roof with two slopes on each side.
