Advantages of Having a Pool Enclosure in Florida

Harpers decided that we would pen an article to highlight our most recent addition of product line.  As we have become a dominant force in the hurricane protection industry, our newest division of pool cages has propelled Harpers into a new dimension. In doing research in regards to the pros and cons of pool cages, we discovered that there were not any negative aspects of pool cages.

Our custom designed pool enclosures enhance the appeal of sitting outdoors at all times of day. No bugs to worry about, no leaves to sweep up, just the beauty and satisfaction of being outside. And, it enables you to keep the sliders and windows open creating an indoor/outdoor living space.


Here is a list providing you with the advantages of enclosing your pool.


Sunlight Protection – Florida, also known as the Sunshine State, never runs out of sunny days. Though most of us love the sun, for the health of the skin it is better to keep your direct sun exposure to a minimum. Our screened pool enclosures filter the sun and will help you and your family enjoy your swimming pool while minimizing the effects of UV skin damage.


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.


Extension of your home – A pool enclosure can make your home feel more spacious due to the capacity of creating another living space next to the pool, including an outdoor kitchen, bar, dining area and relaxation area. During the winter months, it’s easy to expand your living space by allowing all the doors and windows remain open without bugs getting in.  Many of our customers enjoy being able to open their doors out to the pool area and use it as an extension of their home all year.


Increased relaxation and enjoyment – A pool enclosure is a necessity if you want to fully enjoy your pool, and use the space for entertaining friends during the Florida summer months. The mosquitos and “no see-ums” get bad during this time, and without a screened enclosure, the enjoyment factor goes way down. Also, having an enclosure allows you to take a swim anytime, year around, even when it rains.


Energy Cost Reduction – One of the most expensive facets of pool maintenance is the cost of heating the water. Yet an enclosure may assist in keeping the water from becoming too hot and too cold.
