If you are considering adding a pool screen enclosure, there are several factors which determine the overall cost of a pool screen enclosure. Some of these cost include labor setup time and site preparation as well as the permitting and inspection fees. All of these combined contribute to the overall cost of the materials make up the total pool enclosure price.
In the central Florida market, the average cost of a pool screen enclosure including design and materials is between $6,000 and $8,000. Other factors can decrease or increase the cost based on custom designs and the size of the coverage space.
Determining Pool Enclosure Average Cost
As mentioned, the average cost of a pool cage screen enclosure is between $6,000 and $8,000. This estimated price is based on an 800-square-foot pool deck with a dome roof; it also includes the materials and equates to roughly $8 to $10 per square foot. However, the price per square foot can change based on the overall pool size, the location of the pool and making adjustments according to the terrain.
Because of those factors, it can cost between $15 to $25 per square foot for a licensed, bonded and insured contractor and the materials. Therefore, it’s difficult to give an exact price for a pool screen enclosure without first inspecting the space and determining the design.
