Intense heat from the sun can cause a pool to deteriorate. For the pool, it keeps the water moderate as it keeps the sun away. It also provides more other key benefits including:

1.Less debris in the pool

All in all, this should help ensure the pool not only looks amazing outside your house but has the features and functions that make sense for you and your family. Here are something you should know before building year round pool enclosures.

Types of Pool Enclosures

When choosing the types of year-round pool enclosures, some homeowners choose to enclose the pool alone, while others enclose the entire outdoor space that will be used for swimming and socializing.

-Freestanding Pool Enclosures

surround the pool alone and offer an outside “house” with a full-size wall and ceiling. Medium and high telescopic pool cage offers plenty of freedom space in and out of swimming pool shelter.

How to build a pool screen enclosure?

Before you buy or build a year-round swimming pool enclosure, you should know 3 things. Here are a few of the steps that are involved when building a pool in your backyard.

Obtaining Permits

Before construction can begin, the right permits need to be pulled and obtained. Retractable pool enclosures are classified as temporary structures so it is arguable that you do not need planning permission while the portable pool covers do not need permits. However, the permits needed vary based on the country, state,city you reside in. Sunshield Shelter knows what permits to build and get them.

It is necessary to keep the inner width of the enclosure(between inside edges of the rails) which must be checked by measuring diagonals and rail axis width(inner axis width and the distance from the outer edge of the pool.

How much does it cost to screen in a pool?

One of the biggest objections to a telescopic pool enclosure is that it seems so permanent and need a cost of thousands of dollars to buy while choosing a portable fabric pool cover only cost one-tenth of the polycarbonate/glass pool enclosures.See Polycarbonate vs Glass

Which one should you choose in terms of such disparity? Let’s discuss their cost breakdown.

Permanent (30years lifespan) Pool Enclosures

Cost Breakdown:

Screen materials: an average of $15 per square foot depending on your design (they can range anywhere from $5-$25).

Labor: depending on which contractors you hire. Certainly, DIY small [3m to 6m span(10-20feet width)], residential pool enclosures could install by 2-3 homeowners.

Average cost: Assuming a pool enclosure that measures an enclosure [10′ by 20′ pool and a 6′ sidewalk), the total cost will be an average of about $8,000-$8500.

Portable Fabric Pool Cover

Portable Fabric Pool Cover is typically made of Polypropylene Mesh, Scrim Vinyl Coated Mesh or PVC Coated Polyester Solid. They allow you to do it yourself. Keep in mind that portable fabric pool cover will need to be put up and taken down each season.

Cost Breakdown:

It takes dozens of dollars depending on the materials you used.
