When is it Time for a Complete Pool Rescreening

When is it Time for a Complete Pool Rescreening

When you add a pool enclosure, chances are you want to add style to your backyard by defining the area and creating an outdoor room around your pool. It offers a measure of security and privacy by surrounding your pool with a barrier. Plus, it keeps your pool cleaner and reduces the time and effort you’ll spend maintaining it by keeping debris out. However, the pool screen enclosure also needs to be maintained. What happens when your pool enclosure is past its maintenance timeframe? How do you know when it’s time for a complete pool rescreening? These signs can offer you a heads-up.

Updates in Technology Offer Appealing Possibilities
Technology changes constantly. New materials become more durable and better equipped to handle our Florida sun and storms. New screening products can deliver enhanced durability, increased privacy, better insect protection, and improved sun protection. Exploring these possibilities makes it easy to see the appeal of upgrading your screens. If your pool enclosure was built over 20 years ago and looks past its prime, you might consider a pool rescreening.

Mold Has Moved In
Florida’s warm, humid climate ensures that you’ll find plenty of days to enjoy your swimming pool. This humid environment also allows mold and mildew to thrive, especially if you have many trees in your yard. Trees and other coverings just trap the humidity. Mold can grow on pool screens, causing damage and staining. If you’re struggling with a heavy mold infestation and you’ve attempted multiple cleanings, it might be time to consider a pool screen replacement.

Rips Are Making Your Screens Look Ragged
The Sunshine State sees its share of stormy weather. Even though an experienced pool cage contractor will build to Florida code, sometimes, Florida afternoon storms or even hailstorms can cause lots of damage. High winds, heavy rains, and the debris they toss around can rip and tear screens. A pool screen repair may be enough if only one or two tears are in your screen. However, if multiple tears are in your pool screens, a full pool rescreening may be a better solution.

Sun and Salt Have Weakened Your Screens
Storms may be the most obvious source of problems, but they aren’t the only environmental menaces that Florida pool enclosures face. The strong sun and salt air on the coast are undeniably harsh. If your screens show signs of corrosion or wear, don’t wait until they collapse. A pool cage rescreening could breathe new life into your enclosure.

Connection Points Are Having Trouble
If your pool enclosure connects to your home, trouble at the area where it meets the fascia or soffit may raise a red flag. Squirrels and birds love to nest here, which can lead to damage. In addition, this connection can sometimes become a source of drainage issues. This can lead to water damage and mold problems. It’s important to check this area annually for any damage. Any indication of trouble with the fascia or soffit where the house and pool cage connect should be addressed immediately.

Time Has Worn Out Your Screens
Even high-quality pool enclosures that are lovingly maintained will eventually falter. If yours is nearing 20 years of service, even minor issues probably shouldn’t be handled with a pool enclosure screen repair. A full rescreening will likely deliver better value. Sometimes, our screen enclosures look old and tired. That’s okay. They were not meant to last a lifetime. Anything over 20 years is a good run.
