If you’re considering a pool screen, join the club! They’re extremely popular here in Florida. They offer many benefits—#1 on the list being the privacy they provide homeowners.
How much does pool screen cost though?
The quick answer to that question is—it depends.
Let’s take a closer look.
There are several factors that come into play when you’re talking about enclosing your pool.
You may be tempted to grab a portable pool screen—especially if you have a small pool. They’re attractive and certainly the least expensive choice.
However, if left unattended when a spot storm blows up—and living in Florida they will blow up—you could be hunting for your pool screen blocks from home!
How large is your pool? Are you just planning to enclose that area or is it close enough to the house that you’re thinking about including the lanai? These are two important questions when you’re wondering about how much pool screen costs.
When you enclose both your pool and outdoor living space, most people assume that it will be more expensive. That’s not always the case, though, because the screen attaches to your home eliminating an entire side. That’s worth thinking about!
Of course, there’s going to be a cost for labor.
Lastly, you’ll want to consider the materials used.
Pool screen manufacturers either use nylon mesh or Artisan Wire. We’d advise against using Artisan Wire though. It’s manufactured in China and lots of businesses use it because it’s cheap. It may look good when it goes up, but the wires are so thin that they don’t stand the test of time.
You’ll wind up with tears and holes—not to mention the danger of a child or pet being injured or escaping when they discover the damage!
The difference between us and them
We only use Phifer screens because they’re the best. They’re manufactured right here in the U.S.A. too. You can be assured you’re installing a high-quality pool enclosure that’s built to last.
They’re treated with added UV protection to increase their durability.
Your pool screen is locked into the frame with spline. This heavy-duty vinyl material is rolled into the grooves around the screen using a specially designed tool called a spline roller or screen mouse.
We provide our customers with a two-year guarantee on our workmanship.
You might have figured it out already if you’ve been checking out the site, but we also offer our customers the option to customize their pool screen.
Hence, our name.
You can choose one of our digital images or use one from your own photo library. Either way, you can create an outdoor living space that surrounds your family in an environment of your choosing.
What would it be?
The beach? A tropical garden?
The possibilities are endless!
The benefits outweigh the expense
The main reason that homeowners choose to install pool screen is for the sake of privacy. It’s a little hard to enjoy pool time with your family when you keep catching your neighbor’s kids looking forlornly in your direction. Maybe your neighbor has a pool but likes keeping an eye on what’s going on in your yard far more than they enjoy swimming.
Whatever the reason, you’ll never feel as if you’re on display again!
Pool screens offer several other advantages that can sway your decision too.
We love our tropical weather, but those UV rays are a force to be reckoned with for sure!
Lots of homeowners choose to put up a pool enclosure to provide their families with added UV protection. They provide shade so you don’t have to apply sunblock as often.
They shield you from the sun, but our high-quality mesh screens allow air to flow freely so you don’t miss any breeze that blows your way on those hot summer days.
You may not use your pool as frequently at night as you would if you enclosed it with pool screens.
If you’re like most of us, bugs are the reason for that. They begin to swarm as soon as the lights go on and can drive everyone inside in minutes.
You’ll never be annoyed by bugs—or eaten alive by mosquitoes—again no matter how late you have the pool area lit up.
The skinny on skimming
Do you ever wonder if the pool is some form of a magnet for all types of yard debris? It can seem like we spend far more time skimming the pool than we do swimming in it!
You’ll spend far less time skimming and more time lounging poolside after your new enclosure is installed.
Your family will be spared the horror of discovering any small animals that find their way into the pool and but were unable to escape too.
A safe space
Children and pets have a way of wandering off in a heartbeat!
When you’re safely enclosed poolside, you’ll be able to enjoy your daughter’s “best water ballet ever” without worrying that her little brother and the puppy take off on an adventure while you’re distracted by her awesome display of talent.
You can’t put a price on quality time
If you have children, you know that they grow up fast! Time passes too quickly. You want to spend every available second with them while they’re young.
Many families equate time spent in the pool with laughter and light-hearted fun.
Happy memories are being made that will last a lifetime.
When you compare the expense of installing pool screens with their advantages, it’s easy to see why so many homeowners choose to move forward with the job.
When you’re ready to move forward with yours, we hope you’ll consider Private Screens.
