Pool Screen Enclosures
Like the pool, but don’t like the bugs, the damaging sunlight and the constant cleanup. A pool screen enclosure is one of the best way to bring improvements to your backyard. Not only does it lock out the annoying insects that can ruin your swim time, it also keeps out the leaves, giving you more time to enjoy the pool as you spend less time cleaning it. During midday and the afternoon, when the sun is often brightest, the pool screen can create some shade. And during morning and evening hours, a pool screen can help lock in heat, creating more time for you to enjoy the outdoors.
Many people have a back porch area or lanai that is protected from the sun by a roof, but isn’t protected from the elements and nature. Add a screen to your porch or lanai is a great way to turn it into a screen room that can keeps the sun and bugs out while still letting you relax, feel the breeze, enjoy the weather and even smell the grill. High-quality aluminum posts and paneling can be used to add screening to almost any outdoor covered area.
The problem with many back patios is that they offer a lot of space, but no protection from the elements. But putting a roof over the top of a patio is an easy way to improve the area in your backyard while preserving the openness of the outdoor space. A patio cover will give you shade throughout the day, creating many more hours for you to enjoy it. Of course, if you’re adding a patio cover, consider adding a screen too for shade and protection. There are a variety of styles and designs of patio covers available, giving you many options.
For some, even screening your back porch isn’t enough to protect from the elements. By adding glass, vinyl or acrylic windows, you can preserve more of the comforts of the indoors while getting the sights and sunlights of the outdoors. Enjoy air conditioning, a view of the pool or backyard and the sunset while relaxing, eating dinner or hosting friends. Creating a sunroom is like putting an addition on your house, only at a fraction of the cost.
