Pool enclosures are becoming more popular in both residential and commercial settings. In particular, pool enclosures have seen a rise in popularity with homeowners who want a less expensive, better-looking alternative to the common vinyl pool decking. However, pool enclosures come in many different styles and sizes, meaning that even if your space isn’t large enough for a full pool, you can still install an above-ground pool. This article will discuss pool screen enclosures, how they operate, and what types of designs are currently out there. As you’ll see from reading this article, there is a lot to be thought about when deciding on which type of pool screen enclosure to purchase, so I hope that by the time you’re done, you’ll have a better idea of what type of pool screen enclosure is right for you.
Glass pool screen enclosures are one of the most popular designs right now. It’s important to understand what makes them different from the traditional vinyl pool decking. Although both of them provide protection to your pool (by not allowing insects, leaves, debris, etc to enter) the glass pool screen enclosures offer a much higher level of visibility, due to the clear glass surface. The actual glass panel in the pool enclosure is constructed in a very narrow style, similar to a window. They are constructed using a special type of glass called “continuous film amorphous”, which means that the glass is actually manufactured on a continuous sheet – not just in a single sheet.
Because of the clear, viable design of glass, many people have decided to use the screen as a sort of safety net in their yard. With this in mind, you will find that safety glass pool screen enclosures are particularly popular with those who live in apartments or have smaller backyards. Other people are simply more concerned about style than safety – they may prefer the privacy and the design of these enclosures. Even still, there are some safety and privacy issues with these screens, which we will touch upon below.
When you factor in the cost of the enclosures, which can be quite high depending on the design and materials used, it can become quite expensive. Fortunately, many companies have designed their products so that they are very economical. Depending on your area, there are usually pool screen enclosures available at the average cost. You should also consider the installation costs, which again depend on the type and material used.
Depending on where you live, your neighbors may be watching out for you! If so, you might want to consider getting a swimming pool screen enclosure that is not visible from your pool. These types are usually less obtrusive, but they can still be annoying if you want to leave them out at times. Luckily, many of these pool enclosures conceal themselves well, even when the cover is open.
The material used in these enclosures also varies depending on your area. In general, you will find them available in acrylic, wood, fiberglass, and composite materials, although the prices will vary depending on the quality and brand. The prices will also vary depending on the size of the enclosure. For example, an above-ground pool screen will obviously be bigger than those installed below the pool surface. There are also some per square foot enclosures available, which are useful for pool owners who use the area for exercise or recreation.
