The Pro’s and Con’s of Pool Enclosures in Orlando & surrounding areas

Families often times go back and forth on whether to install a pool enclosure as their safety barrier option when building a backyard pool. Screen enclosures are very common in Florida due to pool safety requirements, and they also provide a great barrier to bugs and harsh sunlight. Here is a list providing you both the pros and cons to help make the decision a little easier.

Pro’s

A. Security
The best feature of a screened enclosure is that it provides security both from dirt (insects, dust, and debris like fallen leaves) and unwanted visitors (snakes, uninvited guests, birds and of course alligators!). This keeps bugs, insects, bees and all other tiny animals off your pool. And if you have an open backyard, screened enclosures are a big help in keeping unwanted guests out of your pool area.

B. Easier Maintenance
Most people say that cleaning is a breeze if you have a pool enclosure installed. Your pool will be much cleaner overall due to it keeping out extra debris.

C. Get More Swim Time
A pool heater and pool enclosure is a perfect combination that will extend your swim time. While pool heaters make you dive into the water even during cold days, having pool enclosures help protect you from rain and snow. Having a hot tub attached is also a great idea so you can just soak yourself anytime you prefer.

D. Sunlight Protection
Florida, also known as the Sunshine State, never runs out of sunny days. Though most of us love to go sun bathing, for the health of your skin it is better to keep your direct sun exposure kept to a minimum. Screened pool enclosures will help you enjoy swimming without worrying about harsh UV rays.

E. Designed to Withstand Strong Winds

Though Florida is a Hurricane-prone state, pool enclosures are designed to withstand strong winds, up to 130 miles per hour! Hence, pool enclosures are not damaged easily.

 

Con’s

A. Landscaping limitations
When you have a screened pool enclosure installed, you won’t have quite as many landscaping options. The enclosure can cover a significant portion of your yard, taking away green areas.

B. Pool Water gets Colder
Because of limited sun exposure, the pool water can get a bit cooler in summer and winter months. If the temperature drops below your comfort level, pool heaters can be installed to extend your swim season.

These are just few of the most common reasons why Florida Pool owners install or do not install screened pool enclosures. If you still have questions on whether to get a screen enclosure or not, give us a call at All Seasons, and we would be happy to discuss your options!

Our Client Reviews

The entire team was professional. Our sales manager Tom accommodated our schedule for a Weekend appointment to meet at the office and design and contract for our pool. He worked with us to maximize our budget. Don, the general manager over saw the construction of our pool. He is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the process. We didn't build an ordinary in ground pool, our yard sloped down to a retention pond so a retaining wall was need to hold the pool. The construction started the weekend of Thanksgiving and we are completed and using the pool in mid February (2 1/2 months from beginning to end). Carol communicated when payments was needed along the way, which was outlined in the contract and on their pool build website so you can track the next steps. Marilyn in services and Ron also did a great job in responding to questions and advising when workers would be onsite. We could not be happier with our decision to have worked with All Season Pools!

We want to give a big shout out to All Seasons Pools for the great job they did with our pool and screen insulation. In all of our years dealing with companies, we would definitely put them at the top! The process was almost flawless. We had a great experience from the initial time we met with Dave, our salesman, through the entire process when Don, our project manager said, "jump in!" The team at All Seasons along with their outside contractors were all courteous, professional and great to work with. We give everyone 5 stars. Thanks again All Seasons Pools!

Awesome job on our pool and enclosure. Mike Newman (project manager) and Robert Herod (service tech/ pool school teacher) were the best and most helpful people. I highly recommend the All Seasons team for your complete pool / spa and enclosure business.

Our experience with All Seasons Pools was Fantastic! Our sales consultant Frank Goodwin helped us create a pool that maximized our space without sacrificing any of our requirements. Frank's expertise was head and shoulders above the sales consultants we spoke with at other pool companies. Frank was always on time, followed up on each request or question we had and consistently made sure our expectations were being met. We recommend Frank Goodwin and All Seasons Pools each time we get the opportunity.

My wife and I contracted with All Seasons pool to do our dream backyard and we are extremely happy with the results! They built a Gorgeous hot tub/deck/summer kitchen/elite roof and we have the most unique backyard in the neighborhood. All of our friends and relatives love it ! Now this was a major construction project , so were there issues? Yes ! But did they resolve them all? Yes! Not only did they resolve all our issues along the way, I know we saved money using them over other companies! They deal with any and all warranty issues where most companies disappear once the job is done and you have to deal with the warranty company. The officer was very helpful along with his staff along the way! Would definitely use them again or recommend them to others!
