When you are planning to replace your roof and have a pool Enclosure attached to the house, you need to ask your contractor several things.

1. Will your pool Enclosure need to be disconnected from the house at any point before, during or after the roof  is to be  replaced. (If so, is that included in the price).

2. Does any of the facia board that is between the pool enclosure and the house need to be replaced and how much. (Most of the time the pool enclosure needs to be disconnected when the facia is replaced).

3.  It is good to get the total price of everything that needs to be done before you sign for the roof is replaced.

4.  Generally, extra work, such as disconnecting the pool/patio enclosure  or replacing screen is not included in the price of replacing the roof.

Safety First:  Screen Enclosures can be very tall.  The Alumium can get very hot during the summer and even burn your skin.  Be very careful when you climb on the enclosure.  The enclosure may have bolts missing or the wood on your house could be rotting.  The screen enclosure is also referred to as a sceen room or lanai screen.

Make sure someone is home if you are working on the top of the pool enclosure or on high ladders.  Even if you fall in the swimming pool you could hit your head, foot, or arm on the side of the pool and it could knock you out enough that you could drown.  Even the impact of thye water could knock you out.

Prepare Your Screen Enclosure For Hurricane Season

Hurricanes are severe tropical storms that form in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Scientists can now predict hurricanes, but people who live in coastal communities should plan what they will do if they are told to evacuate.

What should you do to prepare your screen enclosure for the hurricane season.

Check your enclosure for rusty or loose screws, missing screws or missing bracing.

Everything put togather sooner or later falls apart, sooner when the connectors are rusty or worn.

If you are handy, you can replace screws or bolts yourself.

Check for weak, poorly attached corners.  Enclosure angles and corners take heavy stress during a storm and one break can bring down an entire pool cage.

Check for improperly anchored support beams.  Anchoring beams through pavers is not sturdy.  Heavy winds can pull the pavers free from their mortar and sand base.
