Screen enclosures have generally been a staple for swimming pools over the years. As design and landscaping options have evolved, so has the need or want for screen room enclosures. Here we discuss some of the pros and cons.
One of the main reasons that people add a screen enclosure is for security. This can be to keep the bugs, dirt or debris out. In South Florida, we experience these things often. Additionally, they can provide some extra sunlight protection by having that extra barrier between you and the sun.
On the other hand, when you are in the design process you may realize that the addition of a screen enclosure can limit what you are able to do to your backyard. The screen limits the pool design to some capacity. One way to help keep the pool clean without having a screen is by ensuring that all larger trees are trimmed back and not hovering over the swimming pool. This will be sure to help in keeping all that unwanted debris out. Also, you may notice that the pool water is not as warm as you would anticipate. Because of limited sun exposure, the pool water can get a bit cooler than you would like. On the bright side, if you are keen on installing a screen enclosure then you can also explore the idea of a swimming pool heater.
