Avoid Using Contractors Who Circumvent Local Permitting Process

1620653_617150608321042_2035655162_nWe live in a region that unfortunately attracts some contractors who don’t play by the rules.  If you are in the market for a new pool enclosure or are planning to modify your existing enclosure (i.e. adding a picture window), you absolutely need to choose a reputable company to construct or modify your enclosure.

The Many Advantages of a Screen Enclosure

screen enclosureThere are few states where residents get to enjoy the outdoors year-round like Floridians do; a screen enclosure adds so much more to the enjoyment of a patio, pool or other outdoor space. The benefits of a screen enclosure are many. Screen enclosures will:
  1. Keep pests away. Whether you’d like a backyard oasis free from mosquitos or you’d like to enjoy a meal outdoors without having bugs for company, screen enclosures keep the insects at bay.
  2. Increase the safety around your pool and spa areas. Most communities have laws that are aimed at securing your pool from access by others; this is in order to decrease the accidents and tragedies that can occur in an unsecured pool. Screen enclosures and pool fences help keep your pool safe.
  3. Step up security. Our screens are so strong you could stand on them. They add another layer of security to your home.
  4. Create a pet-friendly space. Screen enclosures also create a safe area for your pets to get some outdoor time without all the dangers that can befall pets outside.
  5. Help keep your pool and patio cleaner. Between the wind and the neighbor’s lawn clippings, a screen enclosure will keep a lot of debris out of your pool and outdoor space.
  6. Adds an extension to your home. Your new outdoor room creates a new space for you and your family to live in. It’s the perfect spot for outdoor kitchens, barbecue parties, sleepovers, bridge games and so much more.
  7. Increase the value of your home. All of the advantages of a screen room add up to an increase in your home’s curb appeal, desirability in the eyes of a buyer and the value of your home.

Spiral Staircase Highlights Hendry Aluminum’s Craftsmanship

What do you do when you need a way to get from a third story balcony to your patio in a tight space? A spiral staircase, of course! But then, where do you get such a staircase? It’s not as if you can get on at a home improvement store. The answer is a custom metal fabricator like Hendry Aluminum. Hendry Aluminum recently built and installed an impressive custom spiral staircase, crafting the metal staircase in the shop, transporting it and then installing it on site.

We started with a piece of sheet metal.

The plasma table and other machine shop tools helped the spiral staircase to take shape.

Then it was transported on a flatbed trailer.

Lastly, the stairs were installed on site.

Our Screen Enclosures Create an Outdoor Oasis

Florida has the best year-round weather of any state, but the bugs and other creepy-crawlies think so too! It’s no fun trying to enjoy the pool, the outdoor grill or an evening around the outdoor fireplace if you’re being eaten alive! Our screen enclosures keep out mosquitoes–including  those that carry the Zika virus–biting flies, no-see-ums, spiders, wasps and mud daubers, love bugs…and more! Our screen enclosures are so strong they can hold the weight of a full-grown man; nothing is getting in to your screen-enclosed area. If you love the outdoors, let our screen enclosures becomes your outdoor oasis!
