Pool Enclosure Questions

Are Screened Pool Enclosures Durable?

A screened enclosure may seem like a rather lightweight structure. However, working with an experienced pool enclosure contractor pays off. These professionals know how to combine the right materials and designs with a thorough understanding of the rules and regulations governing construction in Florida. The result is a screened enclosure that’s built to withstand the stormy and windy weather that roars through the Sunshine State.

Are There Design Options?

Homes come in a wide range of architectural styles, designs, and colors. So do pool enclosures! There is plenty of room for customization when building a screened enclosure.

  • You can opt for a freestanding enclosure or one that connects to your home.
  • You may decide to install one that contains just your pool area or one that extends over your pool and patio.
  • You might prefer a white aluminum frame or choose bronze for the metal.
  • In a similar fashion, you have numerous options when it comes to the type of screening.
  • Some pool screens are darker to prioritize privacy.
  • Others focus on durability or keeping out smaller insects.

If you need something specific, just ask us.

What Factors Impact the Screen Enclosure Cost?

Adding a high-quality swimming pool enclosure can be a fantastic way to boost your property values. However, as with any home improvement, there’s a price tag. What factors impact the cost of this type of project?

  • For starters, the design is a consideration. Simple structures are generally less expensive than more complex enclosures that attach to homes or incorporate special features like textured concrete, vinyl windows or a panoramic screen section surrounding your pool enclosure.
  • Size is also an issue. Larger structures will often be more expensive than comparable structures that are smaller in scale.
  • Finally, the materials that you select for your pool enclosure matter. Choosing specialty materials may raise the initial price tag. However, they may deliver a better value by providing an enclosure that will last longer. Some materials require less maintenance over its lifespan. Others provide a solution to a specific site issue or need.

Dulando Screen & Awning has worked with all kinds of budgets. Let us help you get the pool enclosure you want at a budget you can afford.

Top 4 Mistakes to Avoid When Building a Pool Enclosure

Top 4 Mistakes to Avoid When Building a Pool Enclosure

You already know that building a pool enclosure can enhance your pool area and your outdoor living space. A well-designed swimming pool screen enclosure can make your pool area more comfortable, reduce maintenance demands and add value to your property. Unfortunately, there are also some pitfalls if you’re not careful. A shoddy, poorly designed enclosure will add nothing but headaches and hassles to your days. Therefore, how do you ensure that you’ll be delighted with your new pool enclosure? For starters, avoid these common mistakes.

Be Careful When Building a Pool Enclosure

Not Respecting Your Budget
When it comes to pool screen enclosure cost, sticking to your budget isn’t being miserly. It’s being responsible. An experienced pool enclosure contractor won’t flinch when faced with a budget. We understand that most homeowners don’t have an unlimited budget when building a pool enclosure. Therefore, we’ll work with you to find a solution that works for your space, your needs and your wallet.

Focusing Solely on the Project’s Price Tag
While the initial cost of your new pool screen enclosure is important, it should never be your top priority. Here are a few items that might cost a little more:

  • Working with an experienced contractor may cost a little more than working with an inexperienced contractor, but it is generally money well spent. You’ll end up with a better pool enclosure, better customer experience and more value overall.
  • Opting for a custom pool enclosure that is designed for your space allows you to make the best use of your space.
  • Working with a knowledgeable professional reduces your stress. It also builds confidence in your choices and their results.
  • Lastly, spending a little more upfront for quality materials and systems often leads to greater durability and lower operating costs.

All of these can add up to substantial savings over time when building a pool enclosure.

Not Considering the Environment
Florida may be famous for its humid warmth and sunny skies, but the weather here isn’t always friendly. Strong storms and high winds are frequent visitors, so anything that is built in the Sunshine State must be built to withstand nature’s fury. That means pool enclosures must have the right materials and making smart design choices that meet or exceed the relevant State, County and City building codes.

Not Working With an Experienced Pool Enclosure Company
Why is it so important to choose an experienced pool enclosure company? Working with an established, reputable company ensures that they understand a wide range of options for building a pool enclosure and how to achieve your vision for your backyard. In short, you’ll receive what you pay for. An experienced pool enclosure company will have an abundance of resources and familiarization of different types of projects. It is vital that you choose a pool enclosure company that is meticulous about fabrication and installation. Essentially, they bring their experience to your project.

Benefits of Adding a Pool Screen Enclosure

A cool dip in the pool makes living in Florida an enjoyable experience and keeps you from going crazy in the heat of the day. However, you can enhance your time in the pool even more with a pool screen enclosure. Yes, you heard us right. A screened pool enclosure really does add value to your daily swim. If you don’t quite understand yet, just check out some of these benefits and learn how a swimming pool enclosure can make you fall in love with your pool all over again.

A screen enclosure cleans your pool for you.

Okay, maybe it doesn’t actually vacuum your pool or adds chemicals, but a screened pool enclosure does keep all the leaves, loose papers and other debris from blowing into your pool. A pool enclosure keeps out errant baseballs from neighborhood kids, and it keeps dirt and dust at bay from coastal high winds.

An enclosure acts as an impenetrable barrier between you and all the nasty mosquitoes swarming throughout your yard. Since our beach communities are so much closer to the river and the ocean, mosquito season can last almost as long as the 8 months of summer. With a screen enclosure, you don’t have to set up foul-smelling repellent candles or spray any chemicals on your skin or in the air. A swimming pool enclosure also keeps out other bugs that get stuck in your pool which only adds to your cleaning chores.

A pool screen enclosure beautifies your swimming pool.

Perhaps you’ve thought about enhancing your pool but didn’t know where to start. A swimming pool enclosure surrounds the space, creating an intimate outdoor area for you and your guests to socialize and enjoy the outdoors. Aluminum screen enclosures come in many different shapes and sizes to choose from, so you can add a unique enhancement to your pool and make it stand out from other pools in your neighborhood.

Screen enclosures make your pool a safer place.

Living in Florida, we hear about accidental pool deaths every year. It breaks our heart knowing a child has lost his or her life because of this tragedy. It’s almost impossible to supervise children 100% of the time. A screen pool enclosure prevents wandering children from using your pool without your permission, and it also keeps out pets and any neighborhood animals. A screen enclosure adds security and eliminates unnecessary worry.

From keeping your pool clean to preventing unfortunate accidents, pool screen enclosures make your pool a safer, more inviting place. A screen enclosure encompasses the pool area and extends your interior space to the outdoors, and it provides a place for socializing in the Florida sun without the worry of unwanted bug bites.

Added Bonus: Did you know many of the screen products we use offer built-in sun protection as well as privacy features? Our privacy screens allow you to see out while providing privacy inside the screened pool enclosure.
