How Much Does It Cost to Build A Pool Screen Enclosure?  

by Pool Builders on 12-23-2014 in Articles

A helpful guide to determine pool enclosure cost including design and materials.

Besides providing a number of benefits, from guarding against leaves and insects to adding privacy as you swim, enclosures also offer added security and prevent pets and children from venturing into an open pool. From a design standpoint, screen pool enclosures increase your home's resale value and enhance your swimming experience. They also provide an entertainment space for your guests throughout the year.

Every day we are asked by prospective customers how much does it cost to build an enclosure for a backyard pool. In fact, this very question is the basis for this article.

The average cost to build an enclosure our company has experienced in the last few years has been in the $6,000 to $8,000 range which is based on 20 x 40 pool deck with a dome roof. Of course, there are also other criteria which come into play which are explored below.

Enclosures for All Types of Pools

A enclosure must accommodate the many different pool sizes and shapes available. The enclosure varies in its construction depending on both the type and the location of the pool.

All of our outdoor screen enclosures typically are constructed with industry standard aluminum. We have found that this alloy offers the durability necessary for Florida storms. Other factors that determine price are design preference and matching the home's structure.

Pool Enclosure Designs and Options

You have the choice of a screen enclosure that attaches to your home or stands alone as its own unit. You can also choose a basic enclosure that covers just the pool itself and doesn't provide an enclosed space for the patio or the deck.

The screen enclosure roof varies depending on your preference; it can have a flat design or interesting peaks and gables for more visual appeal. The majority of pool enclosures we build are domed shaped. However, you can also have the enclosure built with a hip or mansard roof, also known as French roof with two slopes on each side.

The Many Benefits of Screen Pool Enclosures

An enclosure reduces the time and effort required to remove leaves, bugs and other debris from your pool. It also minimizes the need to add more chemicals or operate the pool vacuum. Other benefits of adding an enclosure include:

  • Providing a safety barrier between the water and any pets or children who should not have access to the pool area
  • Creating a place to entertain guests and have pool parties without worry of insects and other bugs ruining the fun
  • Depending on the screen you choose, you can also reduce solar heat and create a buffer between you and the Florida heat
  • Adding resale value to the home
