Removable screen panels are put in a screen enclosure and are taken out if there is a hurricane threat. Removable screen panels are normally placed on the side of a swimming pool enclosure. They look a bit like a very heavy duty window screen. They are placed on the middle wall sections of your enclosure. If you have a pool enclosure in a hurricane zone then you may know about removable screen panels.
It is recommended that if there is a hurricane threat that you remove one section of screen on each side of your screen enclosure to allow the air to flow more easily. If you have a fence around your house or close to other houses then you may not need to take any screen panels out. If you are on the water or have a wide open space behind your house then the wind has more space to gain speed and blow out screens.  For more information about when to cut out any screen panels before a hurricane check out the post and video “Remove Pool Screen Sections for a Hurricane?”.
If you are thinking about installing a removable screen panel in 2-4 of your side wall panels then it will cost 3-6 times more than it would cost to replace that same screen panel with new screen. So, as you can see, you can replace that same screen section 3-6 times for the same price as purchasing a removal panel. The removable screen panels also look a bit odd.
Additionally, the removable screen panels are rather heavy and are difficult for many people to lift out or put back in place. It often takes 2 people to do this.

October Still Hurricane Season

Posted by JR on October 12, 2011
General / Comments Off on October Still Hurricane Season

Remember Hurricane Andrew?  It was the first hurricane of the season and occurred in October.  We remember what a devastating experience that was.  Everything was such a wreck, especially in south Miami and Homestead.

Even though Wellington was not devastated by Andrew, we still were affected. It was very scary for a lot of people. A lot of us went to the devastated area to help out.

So don’t let your guard down just because it seems the worst part of the hurricane season is past.

Refer to the September post for some tips about how to secure your screen enclosure.

There are also other tips in the other posts.

Have a good Halloween.

Swimming Pool Saltwater Vs Chlorine

Posted by JR on January 21, 2011
DIY / Comments Off on Swimming Pool Saltwater Vs Chlorine

If you are thinking about putting in a new pool this summer then you will need to do a lot of research. Don’t just go to the nearest pool shop. I found this short article about clorine vs salt water pool.

Saltwater Vs Chlorine: Which Swimming Pool Do You Need?

When someone decides that they want to install a swimming pool in their home, inground or above ground is not the only choice they have to make. They will also need to decide if they want a pool that uses saltwater or chlorine to stay clean. There are benefits to both, and the facts should be closely examined before making a choice.

One of the benefits of a saltwater pool is that it provides a more comfortable experience for the swimmers. Chlorine can be known to cause red eyes, itchy skin and even green hair for someone who swims in it often, but this does not occur with saltwater. Also, if someone happens to get some water in their mouth, the taste of saltwater is far more pleasant.

If cost is an issue, a chlorine pool is generally more affordable at the time of purchase than a saltwater pool. However, the cost of chemicals and maintenance can add up faster for a chlorine pool than a saltwater pool. Shoppers must decide whether they are more concerned with saving money at the time they purchase the pool or down the road.

Many people are concerned with choosing the pool that will be safest for the environment but the truth is that there is really no difference. Whether someone uses chlorine or saltwater, they are posing a risk for the plants around their pool. There is also a slight chance, with either system, that there could be a negative impact on the drinking water of the home.

Choosing between a saltwater and a freshwater pool is really a matter of personal preference. Shoppers must consider the expense that they are willing to take on when they purchase the pool, as well as their concern for the comfort of their swimmers. Whichever system someone chooses, they are sure to enjoy having a pool of their very own.

My name is John Blowers and I love to grill out with family and friends by the pool. I have used the same grill for over 6 years and the reason is because I use replacement Grill Parts to save money and headaches. You can find out how I do it at the authority site: http://www.grillpartsblog.com. Now start cooking!

Roof Replacement and Pool Screen Repair

Hiring a Contractor / Comments Off on Roof Replacement and Pool Screen Repair

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.

Do It yourself Tips for Patio Screen Repair Safety

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.
