Three Reasons to Look Into Pool Enclosures

by Pool Builders on 01-26-2014 in Articles

Many families who have pools do not have enclosures around their pools. With the added benefits of a screened pool, and the improvement a screen enclosure can provide to the look of your property, it only makes sense to look into adding a screened enclosure to any property with a pool.

1. Increased Property Value

A screened room is an easy addition to make to any home, and a screened pool enclosure gives the impression that the home has more space. The enclosure of the pool provides an extra area to enjoy, setting a property apart from others that only have pools and no added screened room. Considering how much it costs to build, maintain and repair, it is one of the least expensive ways to improve a home.

Pool enclosures can also be beautiful. The designs of pool enclosures can be clean and crisp, and make any land look more attractive. Spending time in the pool inside a screened room also transforms swimming altogether. It keeps swimmers feeling connected to the outdoors, without the annoyance of insects and has the option to increase shade while still keeping warm. That experience is not only enjoyed by residents, but makes for an excellent selling point when evaluating a home.

2. Protection for Pets, Animals and Children

Many homeowners are reluctant to have a pool because of young children or pets. It can be a great responsibility to keep a pool covered and out of reach of wandering kids and animals. Even vigilant parents can lose sight of children playing outdoors and it only takes one moment for an accident to occur. A screened room or pool enclosure can protect loved ones and pets from injury or death.

Homeowners whose lands border on spaces shared by wildlife can also feel more secure knowing that their pools are protected from animals. Deer, snakes, alligators, birds and other native species can easily wind up in a backyard and find themselves hurt or trapped in a filled or empty pool. A screen enclosure is a line of defense that also adds to the aesthetic quality to your property.

3. Decreased Maintenance

A screen enclosure can also keep a pool much cleaner. Screens let in warmth and breezes, but also protect against dirt and debris. Leaves, twigs and grasses stay out of the pool, reducing the amount of time a homeowner spends keeping a pool clean. With less dirt in the water to start, a pool's filtration system can be under less of a strain. Pools stay cleaner and their cleaning systems are less taxed and can last even longer, saving time and money.

Adding a Screen Room or Pool Enclosure

It is far easier now, more than ever, to get a pool enclosed by a screened room. Companies are manufacturing pre-fabricated kits that can be assembled without too much trouble by homeowners. Another option for a tailored look and quality installation is to reach out to professionals who will design, install and be on call for repairs. Now is the best time to contact a professional and get the added benefits of a screened pool enclosure before summer!
