Aluminum screen enclosures are a great way to protect your pool and landscaping from debris and unwanted guests. There are many different types of aluminum enclosures for pools. These enclosures are available in many different sizes, shapes, colors, and materials. The one you choose will depend upon the size of your pool and your personal preferences. Here is a little more information about this product as well as some tips to help you make an educated decision on which type is best for your needs.
One of the most important things to know before purchasing aluminum screen enclosures is that they come with two hardware pieces. These are known as an outer cover as well as an inner cover. The outer cover will have screws and mounting hardware securing the screen to the frame, while the inner cover will have additional padding for comfort and to prevent scratches. A screened patio or dwelling size is considered the minimum coverage available for this type of product.
When shopping for aluminum screen enclosures, it’s important to understand that the height and depth of the enclosure will affect the amount of space that is available around the unit. For example, if you need to enclose a pool that is deeper than 60 feet, enclosing the pool will be much more difficult. A screen room which is too shallow will not provide you with any protection. On the other hand, a screen room that is too steep will make swimming through the area much more difficult. Again, the depth and height of the screen room will be a determining factor when choosing the correct screen enclosures for your situation.
You should also think about how much light actually comes through the aluminum screen room enclosure when it is open. Will there be direct sunlight, or beams of sunlight streaming in from another room? It is important that you choose a screen room that has the proper amount of light control. Some people even have the option of adjusting the angle of a screen room’s panels in order to increase or decrease the amount of light that is allowed to enter the space.
When considering the installation process of aluminum screen enclosures, you should also consider how easy it will be to install the screen room. Remember, with screen room, it is a good idea to hire a professional in order to ensure that your installation is done properly. If you don’t feel comfortable installing it yourself, you can always contact a local company who specializes in aluminum screen enclosures in order to help make the installation as easy as possible.
Aluminum screen rooms are very effective at keeping heat in. Heat is one of the main killers of furniture, aside from moisture. It is therefore important that you get an enclosure which will effectively keep out heat, as well as moisture. By choosing the right aluminum enclosures for your space, you will be able to keep your patio or deck looking great and still have the necessary protection from the elements.
