Why Aluminum Pool Enclosures Are The Best Option in Florida

What goes into a top-quality pool enclosure? As a family-owned and -operated company committed to delivering the best results to central Florida communities, Dulando Screen & Awning knows that there’s an essential ingredient: aluminum. In the Sunshine State, no material can withstand the heat, humidity and unpredictable weather. There are several reasons why aluminum pool enclosures are your best choice.

Features for Aluminum Pool Enclosures


Pool enclosures are deceptively simple structures. The open, airy design that lets air and sun in can make them appear fragile. However, custom aluminum pool screen enclosures have surprising strength. When properly designed, constructed from quality materials, and installed by professionals, aluminum enclosures shouldn’t break. They can better withstand Florida’s stormy weather and help protect your home and pool area. At Dulando Screen & Awning, our expert craftsmen use top-notch materials from trusted suppliers like Phifer Screens to build custom enclosures that always comply with all relevant building codes and regulations.


Few building materials fare well in Florida’s strong sun and heavy humidity. Whether you are on the coast or have a pool enclosure,  salt and pool chemicals also take a toll. Aluminum is an exception. It won’t rust, rot, warp, or falter against wood-eating insects. As a result, aluminum offers durability that steel, wood, and other common building materials cannot match. A custom pool enclosure frame crafted from aluminum can be designed to fit your space.

Ease of Maintenance

Wood is gorgeous, but it must be sanded, painted, and sealed if you don’t want it to crack, warp, or rot. It should be constantly inspected for termites and other destructive influences. Steel is heavy and vulnerable to rust whenever water is present. Florida’s humidity is harsh enough, but using it for pool enclosures seems especially unwise. In contrast, aluminum is a low-maintenance material. With no need to worry about rust or other damage, you can take a few moments to rinse it down if it starts to look dingy. With less time for maintenance chores, you’ll have more time to enjoy your pool.


Over the years, concerns have popped up around certain building materials because of the chemicals used in their creation. While pressurized lumber might make the list, aluminum doesn’t. It’s considered nontoxic. Aluminum is also a notably lightweight metal. That reduces fears about having it overhead and about stressing your home’s structural integrity by adding a pool enclosure. Of course, when you work with a reputable pool enclosure contractor, you don’t have to worry about safety. Quality should be at the top of the list when building your new enclosure. Ensure your pool enclosure contractor complies with all relevant rules and regulations, that it’s constructed with quality materials, and that everything is installed correctly.


When you love spending time outdoors, the desire to make environmentally friendly choices is natural. Fortunately, aluminum makes it easy. The enclosure can easily be recycled when it meets the end of its lifecycle.
