A Pool Enclosure for Everyone’s Style

Types of Pool Enclosures for Your Atlanta Home

If you’ve been thinking about a pool enclosure for your Atlanta home, you probably already know that it will cut down immensely on maintenance costs and time, as well as provide you with a way to enjoy your pool year round. But there are some added benefits to having a pool enclosure as well, including that a pool enclosure can double as a sunroom, four-season patio or a place for outdoor dining, as well as add a good deal of resale value to your home.

When choosing a pool enclosure, it’s important to understand your options. Here’s a look at some different types of pool enclosures that are available on the market today.

inflatable-pool-enclosureInflatable Pool Enclosures

Resembling an air dome or bubble, you’ve most likely seen these inflatable enclosures used on tennis courts and playing fields, but they’re also used for home pools.

As to how it works, an inflatable pool enclosure’s pneumatic structure consists of tear-resistant coated vinyl over a fabric base. Steel cables are then used to anchor the enclosure, and an inflation system of motorized blowers maintains the atmospheric pressure inside and out, which in essence is what keeps it standing up.

Inflatable enclosures are mostly used in warmer, non-windy climates, as heating these structures when the weather gets cool can be a bit pricey, and they need to be deflated in high winds.

telescopic-pool-enclosureTelescopic Pool Enclosures

Also referred to as retractable enclosures, telescopic enclosures can be a popular choice among pool owners who still want to feel like they have an outdoor pool but like the benefits that a pool enclosure offers. Telescopic enclosures can look a little like a segmented caterpillar, and each section folds neatly inside a slightly larger section, much like a telescope.

The most popular telescopic enclosures slide on tracks that are attached to a flat desk surface. But trackless models are also available; these can be easier to install and can work on surfaces that aren’t perfectly flat, but aren’t recommended for larger spans.

These types of pool enclosures can work well in Atlanta homes, where we have good weather most of the year, but still get a few colder months as well.

All 042Permanent Pool Enclosures

Probably the most popular type of pool enclosure, a permanent pool enclosure is just that—one that is permanently in place. Permanent pool enclosures can be custom designed in a variety of styles, though most do utilize glass in order to maximize natural sunlight and minimize heating costs and still give the feeling of being outdoors.

A permanent pool enclosure can also add to the total square footage of your house, helping to increase your Atlanta home’s resale value.

Most permanent pool enclosures are built with aluminum & steel, and use glass glazed panels or a polycarbonate substitute, which helps block out harmful UV rays. When getting a custom pool enclosure, you’ll have many options, including custom roof styles and structural details, allowing you to give it a look and feel of its own.

Though permanent pool enclosures are usually built attached to a home, they can also be designed as standalone structures.

Another form of permanent pool enclosure is a screened pool enclosure. A screened pool enclosure offers many of the benefits of a glass pool enclosure, particularly in terms of reduced maintenance costs, and for those on a budget, the cost of a screened enclosure is significantly less. But a screened enclosure does have some drawbacks–it doesn’t have the same benefits of adding resale value to your home like a glass pool enclosure, nor does it allow for year-round and all weather enjoyment of your pool. Screened pool enclosures are still popular choices among Atlanta homeowners, however, and may be the perfect choice for your needs.
