Pool Enclosure Painting – When it is Time?

Your pool area is perhaps the most used spot of your house during summers. The continuous usage and humid weather conditions can cause wear and tear of your pool enclosure. A lot of people overlook the condition of their pool and pool cage and later bear with the unpleasant consequences.

Your pool cage needs evaluation on a regular basis to figure out if it needs a restoration service. We have listed down tips to help you evaluate the condition of your pool to find out if it’s time for your pool enclosure painting.

Examine the Paint

The first and most apparent sign to identify the need to refurbish your pool cage is flaking paint. If its paint is coming off or peeling even from a single spot, don’t leave it like that. If you leave the problem ignored, the paint of your entire enclosure will deteriorate.

At times, paint cracking is not easily noticeable. Make sure to check the screws and fasters of the enclosure. Any bubbling of paint at those points is a sign your pool cage needs a fresh paint job. Another method to examine the paint is by rubbing your hand on the cage. If your hand feels chalky, this means the aluminum coat is coming off. Don’t wait any further and get your pool enclosure painting done before sun exposure causes more harm to it.

Inspect the Screen

Observe if your screen is changing its color or fading. This could be an effect of continuous sun exposure, thereby signifying that your screen will tear down soon. Moreover, check all the corners of the screen where it has been attached. Any cracking or bubbling of paint indicates the need for repainting. Also, don’t forget to look for signs of rips, holes or shreds that need to be taken care of.

Scrutinize the Screws

Conduct a thorough inspection of all the screws and bolts to check for rust. Leaving rusty screws can prove to be very dangerous for your pool. It can weaken the pool enclosure’s structure, and it can fall down in harsh weather conditions like on a windy day or hurricane. Replace its hardware with stainless steel bolts to avoid rusting and ensure a safe pooling experience.

Pool Cage Painting – the basics

We’ve painted hundreds of pool cages, and undoubtedly it’s challenging work. Do not take this the wrong way– we would certainly like to paint your pool enclosure, and we have actually got the procedure down ‘pat’! While the work is challenging we are experts in pool cage painting.

Let’s have a look at why it is so difficult and numerous knowledgeable painters decline the work.

It is exposed from all sides

Wind from North? Every member of the pool enclosure is going to catch capture it. Unlike a wall of your house, pool cage members are exposed to wind, sun, and the elements from all directions. On top of that, they are usually taller than a lot of the surrounding structures. This implies there is no break from the aspects. Things require to be done, quick within a little window of time.

Pool Cages are 3-Dimensional

House walls are flat, while pool enclosure members have 4 sides. Unique care needs to be required to accomplish a full and even protection on all sides. ‘Running’ of the paint takes place easier these 3 dimensional members as the paint in a liquid state makes its way to the edges, and then rounds to the other side.

Paint does not easily bond to aluminum

Metal is one of the trickiest surface areas to paint as the metal doesn’t quickly bond to it. The postponed bonding makes it challenging to get a smooth surface without runs. In areas of peeling paint, or rust, which are typically discovered near connection joints including dissimilar metals, proper actions must be requiring to get these locations into suitable condition for re-finishing.

It can’t be rolled on

If you desire a high quality surface, free from noticeable streaks the paint applied to the screen enclosure can’t happen with a roller. The very best application technique is spray. With a roller, the painting can be done quickly from the ground, or a distance. Utilizing a spray applicator needs the painter to get up close to the pool enclosure using ladders, scaffolding and walkboards. It likewise requires a significant investment in spray application equipment can cost several thousands of dollars. For many painters who do cinder block structures, and interiors an investment into this equipment which they wouldn’t use frequently, simply is not practical.

Open air can quickly lead to over spray

Since the paint particles must travel through the air, over spray can end up being an issue. More attention than typical needs to be given to masking and covering the surrounding location’s to prevent making a mess and getting paint on other surface areas.

Screen Requirements To Be Eliminated

To paint the pool cage, the screen mesh in between each members, and the spline holding it location requires to be removed.
