Building a Screen Enclosure for Your Pool

To keep your pool area free from unwanted leaves and insects, a custom built, aluminum framework can be erected over your entire pool and covered with durable screening. Watch this video to find out more.


    • Hi Aleksandr,
      Other than the video you see here, we do not have further information available on how to make a screen enclosure.

  1. Is your pool surround (either paving or decking) in good condition? Is it level and solid? In order for a pool enclosure to work easily and efficiently your paving should be as level as possible and also the paving should be reasonably smooth, particularly if you are not having a tracked system.

    If you have opted for a tracked system then this is not so crucial. However if the surround is particularly uneven, you may need to consider fixing a level boarding, or platform to even it out.

    The smoother the pool surround, the easier the enclosure will operate.

  2. We were hit by hurricane Michael and it tore off and twisted up our screened pool enclosure, attached to the house. Unfortunately our insurance company is not giving enough for us to have it professionally done. We need roof repairs, carpet, fence, gutters, debris removal. We loved using the area right off the sliding door, we need brown to match the patio furniture. It was a 3 sided enclosure. Coming off of the roof of our outdoor sitting area.

    • Hi, Joe, features home improvement advice from the nationally syndicated TV show “Today’s Homeowner” and its experts.
      We don’t sell construction products on this website, but we encourage checking your local home center for these materials.
      Good luck!

    • Hi, Bruce,
      Thanks for your interest in the product used for this episode.
      This video is nine years old, so, unfortunately, we no longer have that information.
      Take care!

  3. Mike and Den, our pool enclosure was destroyed by Hurricane Michael Also please reply to my gmail, my husband will do his diy, we can possibly help you and you help us? It’s the labor, I know where we can get the materials, better than what we had screen. All for about 3,000. I think.
    Hope you see this !!!!

  4. Why did you even run this piece if you did not have the information to give homeowners the ability to make it?

    • Hi, Margie! Some projects are easy to ‘do-it-yourself’ for the average homeowner; others, like this one, aren’t. This video focuses on building a screen enclosure for the pool, and shares what’s involved with that process. But it’s not a how-to video. Thanks for watching. 🙂

  5. Hmm is anyone else encountering probⅼems with thе images οn this blog loading?
    Ӏ’m tгying tօ figure out іf its a problem on my end or if it’s thе blog.
