When is it Time to Rescreen a Pool Enclosure?

It’s a beautiful, sunny Florida day, so you head out to your pool enclosure to enjoy a quick dip and some relaxing time soaking up the sun. But when you get out there, you notice a few sagging, frayed screens, unwanted pests, and the pool is turning green! What’s going on?

It sounds like it’s time to rescreen your pool enclosure. Every 2-3 years, it’s a good idea to get a contractor to come out to assess your screen’s condition and make any needed repairs. You can expect to need to replace the screens every 5-8 years for optimal appearance and function.

Upgrade Your Roofed Patio to an Enjoyable Sunroom or Screen Room

Florida is known for its sunny skies, sandy beaches, and year-round pleasant weather. However, Florida is also known for its oppressive humidity, frequent rain showers, and an army of insects.

The Difference Between a Sunroom and Screened Room

If you’re considering adding some outdoor space to your home, you’ve got plenty of options. Two of the most popular choices here in Florida are sunrooms and screened rooms. Screened rooms go by many names, including screened-in rooms and screened-in porches.

A sunroom is a roofed structure that is connected to your home with glass walls, usually from floor to ceiling. A screened room is similar, except the walls are finished with a fine mesh screen instead of glass.

Sunroom Benefits

A sunroom gives you the feeling of being outdoors with protection from the elements. Since the walls are made of glass, you get the benefits of the sun’s rays on nice days, plus you’ll feel surrounded by the greenery of your lawn and gardens. Sunrooms are very popular with home gardeners since they are a great place for fragile plants to grow while still getting much needed sunlight. However, since they are completely enclosed, you can expect the additional cost of air conditioning for the space.
