Warning Signs That Your Pool Screen Is In Need of Repair
The bluest of skies are grazing overhead, the sun is beaming down on you, and the heat is slowly rising.
Does anything sound more appealing than jumping into your backyard pool and cooling off?
We don’t think so!
But what if your pool screen has been damaged?
Not only can your swimming pool become damaged too, mosquitos and leaves can fly in, and you also put yourself and your family at risk in the process.
Screen enclosures work wonders – when they’re working properly – but leave them in need of repairs too long, and not only will they be made completely redundant, but they’ll likely also need to be completely replaced.
So how do you know if your pool screen enclosure needs repairing, rescreening, or even replacing?
Here are the warning signs you need to be looking out for:
Broken stitching or sagging
After a certain amount of time, like anything, a product becomes worn and weakens compared to how it was when brand new. If you have dogs or cats, they tend to take the screen material as their new toy, seeing if those paws can tear it down. This causes what we call animal screen damage that leads to these sags or tears in your screen enclosure.
The screen material in pool enclosures that are five years or older can start to sag, and the screen stitching can also start to come apart. Not only will this be visually unattractive for you and your guests, but if left unrepaired it will only deteriorate further costing you more money at a later date.
Save yourself the cash and trouble by chatting to one of our screen repair experts today here at Screenvana in Miami.
Animal Screen Damage
There’s not much you can do to prevent animals like birds or squirrels from taking a toll on your pool screen enclosure. From corrosion with their waste to biting and scratching through the screen, even the frame at times! Animal screen damage is your worst enemy with any screen and sometimes it’s not your random squirrel doing the damage but most of the times from your own cats and dogs. In fact, it is one of the most common service calls we get for rescreening enclosures.
But that’s not all…
Then there are pesky insects like mosquitoes and flies that will find their way through the tiniest of holes. All it takes is one claw from your cat or dog and you have just given an invitation to all the flies and mosquitos in the neighboorhood to come enjoy your patio with you. Forget having a BBQ in your lanai, will won’t stand to be 20 minutes outside in the summer months. Bottom line is, if you notice anything frequently flying around your screen room, there’s a good chance there’s a hole somewhere.
Often, it can be in hard to reach places that are out of sight – if you don’t have the right tools. Rescreening of your pool cage can become a risky and dangerous task in some cases. If you don’t want to hunt around looking for the hole yourself and would prefer to allow a professional to do it safely – Screenvana can take care of it. Schedule a free, in-house estimate with our simple booking system. One of our technicians will arrive at your home at the time and date you pick from our calendar.
Extreme weather conditions have caused damage
We don’t wish this upon anyone but incase this were to happen to your pool cage after a storm, we do offer pool cage removal services
Miami has its fair share of glorious sunshine, but if you’ve lived here in Florida for a while, you’ll know we get many hurricanes and tropical thunderstorms too.
This kind of extreme weather is bad news for any kind of screen enclosure, causing dents, holes, mold, and even blowouts to your screen room. Screws can also loosen and fall out into your swimming pool during strong storms, and will quickly rust and cause damage if left unnoticed.
Extreme heat can also degrade your enclosure over time, and result in faded paint, warping of the structure, and dry rot too.
But did you know there are certain measures you can take to protect your pool screen from any unnecessary enclosure repairs?
If you’d like to learn more, we’ll send one of our team out to assess your enclosure and get you up to speed on how to best protect it and make it last longer.
Out of control algae
This is common on screens, including a pool or patio enclosure, over time. It’s difficult to gain control over the growth and spread of this weed, and aside from cleaning it regularly there’s not a lot you can do.
If cleaning doesn’t solve the problem, it’s likely you’ll need a screen replacement.
Time has taken its toll
If your screen is on the cheaper side, it only has a life expectancy of around three years, so don’t be surprised if you find it coming apart at the seams over this short period.
At Screenvana, we pride ourselves on being the best pool screen repair Miami has to offer, by providing our customers with the highest quality materials, craftsmanship, and customer service to boot.
The average life of a high-quality screen increases to around seven to ten years (depending on external factors), meaning you’ll find yourself getting a pool screen repair or replacement much less frequently when dealing with a highly reputable and professional company like ours.
