How to Choose the Perfect Pool Enclosure
If you think that seven billion people on Earth is a lot, think about this: for every one person, there are more than 200 insects. That’s a lot!
Unfortunately for pool owners, it can seem like the entire population of the world’s insects target your pool as a place to hang out. Besides making it hard to enjoy your pool with your friends and family, it makes cleaning even more of a chore.
This is just one reason why you should protect your pool with a high-quality pool screen and enclosure. Pool enclosures help to prevent dirt, debris, and bugs from getting stuck in your pool and harming your guests. But that isn’t all pool screens are good for: they also add an element of safety for pets and children, preventing them from wandering off.
Of course, there’s no “one size fits all” option when it comes to choosing that right screens for pools. There are certain factors you will need to consider when you set one up, including your personal budget and lifestyle preferences. The following will help you get started.
Choose High-Quality Materials
By choosing a pool enclosure made with top-quality materials, you can rest assured that you will enjoy your enclosure for years to come. Unlike conventional fiberglass screens, Super Screen™ won’t become brittle and breakable after a few years. It retains its flexibility and its strength, year after year. In fact, after a seven-year weathering simulation test, it only showed a 1% loss in tensile strength.
Additionally, Super Screen™ has UV-tolerant properties which prevent fading over time, so the color your pool screen comes in is the color it’s going to stay. That way, there’s no need to worry that the sun will bleach out its color.
Super Screen™ isn’t even susceptible to damage from hyper pets. Customers of Super Screen™ say they can’t see claw marks on their pool screens. Many other enclosures are not that durable.
Finally, the mesh screen material used in Super Screen™ features a biocide compound which helps prevent mildew growth. Anyone who has ever experienced mildew damage on their property can attest to the damage it can cause. Forget about the threat of mildew by trusting in a pool screen that stands the test of time.
Inspect Your Surroundings
Before you begin any kind of property enhancement, you should always inspect the environment around your home. Ask yourself how installing a pool enclosure will change the look and feel of your yard, both for you and your neighbors.
In some cases, plants or garden decorations will need to be removed and relocated to make room for the new enclosure. On the other hand, with new structures come new opportunities to renovate your house and yard in other ways.
Depending on how close your nearest neighbors are, you may want to consider how installing a pool enclosure will affect their experience of their yard. While this isn’t usually an issue, it’s still polite to let your neighbors know when you invest in any major updates to your yard.
Consult With Experts
Did you know that many realtors agree that a high-quality pool enclosure will add value and interest to a property? This means a pool enclosure would be an investment in your home, especially if you think you might sell it in the future.
Additionally, many insurance companies offer discounts to homeowners with pool enclosures because of the added safety and security they provide. People with experience in housing and real estate know that good pool enclosures are a safe and valuable investment.
Know What Maintenance Is Involved
As with most aspects around the home, proper maintenance is the key to ensuring the longevity and continued sturdiness of your pool screen. While Super Screen™ is designed to last a very long time, there are still maintenance tasks to perform regularly to keep it looking and performing its best.
Pool enclosures typically involve routine inspection of the screen, fasteners, and other equipment making up the structure. While this is important for maintaining the integrity of any structure, it really isn’t a severe commitment. Your pool enclosure shouldn’t require that much maintenance besides an occasional checkup.
