Screen around pool

ladoladiFebruary 26, 2014

Hi,

This may not be the best forum for this question, but I'm not sure where else to ask. The screen enclosure around our pool needs to be replaced; the screen part, not the whole metal structure. We really don't have the option to get rid of it: we live in Florida and mosquito season is brutal.

We're ready to hire a company to replace the screen, but we're looking for any recommendations from folks who've already done it. Screen type? Brand? Dos and donts? Is there any kind of screen that stands up to pollen and mildew better than the rest?

Thanks for your input!

If you could provide a city that you live in some here might be able to help you find a contractor to do this.

There are not many screen choices.

I had my pool enclosure rescreened about a year ago. The company that did mine had some good info on the screen choices, maybe that will help. I just went with their standard Phifer. They can also do the rescreen estimates online

I've read and heard good things about gulfcoast. I plan on using them for rescreening in the future

We have house in Nokomis, FL with screened lanai. We wanted it rescreened after doing some work on the patio area to add pavers. We chose Gulf Coast Aluminum because of the price and the attitude of the person who came out to give the bid...we had some questions about best way to rescreen after having pavers laid and their advice seemed knowledgeable.

They did a horrible job--horribly inept crew to come out and replace the screws in the frameworks which we were upgrading. They probably dropped 200 screws into our pool--which was WORKING at the time. They didn't follow our request to call and schedule before coming--just showed up. Horrible follow through on the cleanup. Then when they did the rescreening there were issues as well.

They had to come out on 5 or 6 occasions to either complete replacing screws they missed, clean trash they left IN the pool out, or fix sections of the screen they messed up.

They were just about the worst people I can think of to use so I definitely would not recommend Gulf Coast Aluminum.

Thank you for your comments. I'm going to have to think about this a bit more.
