Super Gutter Installation on your Pool Cage could save you in costly repairs of your Tampa home

The flow of water around the structure of your pool cage can be one of the primary factors in the longevity of it. The experts at Tampa Bay Rescreens and Repair have taken the time to put together some tips for you to not only make the flow of moisture more efficient, but to also save you money in costly repairs. When it comes to the installation and maintenance of Pool Enclosures, the motto of “quality work at a fair price” is lived up to every time.

Over time, your pool cage will be subject to tens of thousands of gallons of rainwater passing through it. This has several effects.

Pool Enclosure Super Gutters too small?

pool-enclosure-structural-integrity-2pool-enclosure-structural-integrity-1Is your pool enclosure gutter system properly handling the amount of rain flowing off your roof, especially barrel tile roofs? Water overflowing over the gutter will cause your fascia and soffitt boards to stay wet, inviting insect infestation and wood rot.  If the super gutter wasn’t attached to a structural part of the roof framing the rotting fascia board could cause the gutter and the screen roof beams to collapse with catastrophic results. Tampa Bay Rescreens can replace that 5″ gutter to a 7″ super gutter allowing the gutter system to handle the roof rain run off.

 

With a Super Gutter, the effects of rainwater can be mitigated, which will greatly decrease the damage by the elements and extend the life of your pool cage.

Is your pool enclosure lacking a Super Gutter altogether?

Is the rain from your roof  just flowing through the roof screen of pool enclosure like a waterfall? Without a gutter, the waterfall effect can cause an erosion effect on your pool deck, especially if you have brick pavers. They are softer than concrete decks and will erode faster over time. Tampa Bay Rescreens can install a 5 or 7 inch super gutter to prevent the erosion on the deck which keeps all that water from pooling on the deck. (see photos below of a super gutter installed where there was none before)
