What Is the Screen Over a Pool in Florida Called?

When you think of Florida, images of endless sunshine, beautiful beaches, and lush landscapes often come to mind. For those fortunate enough to call the Sunshine State home, having a pool is a common luxury. But Florida's abundant natural beauty also comes with some unwelcome guests: bugs, debris, and sometimes unpredictable weather. That's where pool screen enclosures come into play. Let’s explore what screen enclosures for pools in Florida are called, and how Lafferty Aluminum and Screening, a leading name in the industry, can transform your Florida pool experience.

What Is a Pool Screen Enclosure?

A pool screen enclosure, often referred to simply as a "pool screen," is a structure built around a pool area to provide protection from various outdoor elements while allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. These enclosures are typically constructed using aluminum frames and specialized screens that shield the pool area from bugs, leaves, debris, and even harmful UV rays.

The Benefits of a Pool Screen Enclosure

Protection from Bugs

In Florida, the presence of mosquitoes and other insects can be bothersome. A pool screen enclosure creates a barrier, ensuring that your pool time remains insect-free.

Reduced Debris

Falling leaves, twigs, and other debris can quickly dirty your pool. A screen enclosure keeps these nuisances out, reducing the time and effort needed for pool maintenance.

Weather Protection

Florida's weather can be unpredictable, with sudden rain showers and intense sun. A pool screen provides shelter from rain and reduces the risk of sunburn, allowing you to enjoy your pool even during less-than-ideal weather conditions.

Factors Affecting the Cost of a Pool Screen Enclosure

Several factors can influence the cost of a pool screen enclosure project:

Pool Size and Shape

The size and shape of your pool are significant cost determinants. A larger pool or irregular shape may require more materials and labor, increasing the overall cost.

Screen Type

The choice of screen material can impact the cost. Standard fiberglass screens tend to be more affordable, while premium options may come at a higher price.

Enclosure Height

Taller enclosures require more materials and labor, adding to the cost.

Additional Features

If you desire doors, windows, or custom designs, these will come with additional costs but can enhance both aesthetics and functionality.

The Cost of a Pool Screen Enclosure in Florida
