Enclosed Swimming Pool in Houston

​​Crucial elements to watch for regarding poor enclosure construction:

  • Thin Aluminum: What you save in money you lose in strength.
  • Lack of diagonal bracing: Lightweight enclosures can twist and break if they don't have enough bracing.
  • Weak or corroded screws: Watch for the use of rusty or corroded screws.
  • Improperly anchored support beams: Anchoring beams through pavers is not sturdy. Heavy winds can pull pavers free from their mount and sand base.
  • Long, insufficient supported beams: Contractors may use a "man with the span," an engineer who'll sign off on an enclosure designed with over-long beams that can't withstand high winds that can twist and break them.
  • Densely woven screens: Although great for keeping bugs out, they can catch too much wind.

Correct Enclosure Construction:

  • Brace House to handle wind loads from screen cage.
  • Use thicker beams and columns: The wind knows the difference.
  • Use "K" bracing or tension wires: They beef up the corners.
  • Properly anchor support beams: Beams should be secured directly to concrete footing - not pavers.
  • Have walls and top of cage braced with diagonals, even at expense of views. These cross braces counteract the twisting forces.
  • Use thick metal for angle brackets: Secure joints with multiples screws.

 Add Retail Value To Your Home                                                          Pool Screen Enclosure Roof Types
Our enclosures are custom designed to fit any

space and shape. They can be designed to extend

from a roof line,  a patio cover, or designed as a free

standing pool enclosure. Pool enclosures are

beautifully aesthetic, and add value to 

your home.

• Custom Enclosures
The owner of FDR Custom Enclosures has over

30-years experience building every roof type.

Usually the roof style of the house determines

the enclosure roof type, with Mansard being the

most common. Designs by Frank can create a Mansard roof

that transitions into an A-Frame roof type. 

We have 5 beam colors to choose from.

For beams over 7 feet, sandstone, adobe, and ivory

will have to be special ordered. Bronze and white are not special order

which eliminates wait time for a special order delivery, because they are

the most used in the aluminum industry.

​Screen rooms provide a pleasant and comfortable outdoor environment where one may feel relaxed without being annoyed by insects. They expand the exterior patio area that is adjacent to the existing house, which provides a larger covered space. They provide year-around enjoyment, regardless of our Texas climate conditions. We engineer our screen rooms to withstand hurricane weather conditions while maximizing visibility. Our product is built by using panels that have a Texas & Florida product approval.

Screen pool enclosures are trending in Texas. Some people refer to them as pool cages. They are one in the same. When facing heavy winds, they need to be designed to stand firm. Strong aluminum beams and engineering are used to tighten the roof bracing and special hardware is used to attach the enclosure to the concrete deck. We meet or exceed county codes in all our screen patio and pool enclosure projects and we are recognized for being very detail-oriented. Our philosophy is to build a strong, lasting product while keeping the engineering and design in balance with the landscape.

Aluminum pergolas are growing in popularity because they last a long time and need almost no maintenance to continue looking good. Whether you are improving the appeal of an existing patio or converting a corner of your property into a cozy backyard retreat, our Aluminum Pergolas help to protect and enhance your home’s value by making your outdoor space more beautiful, comfortable, and inviting. You may also want to see our new Louvered Roof system that combines both options of a cover patio and an aluminum pergola.

Insulated roofs
The Elite insulated roofs are one of most the popular products we use.  They are typically used to provide cover to an exterior area or to create an insulated terrace.  The 3” insulated panels reduce the heat by 
up to 15% and are strong enough to walk on top, which is a big plus for home maintenance. The insulated roofs can be combined with superior design columns and skylights to provide an amazing outdoor space. Electric conduits can also be included inside the roof panels for placement of fans or lighting. You, your family, and your friends will be delighted to enjoy more time outdoors.

​• Freedom From Insects And Debris

Swimming Pool Screen Enclosures are a great way to decrease the amount of maintenance that is required to keep your pool clean of debris. Pool Cages keep lawn maintenance debris and vegetation debris from getting into your pool area.  Screened in Pool Enclosures also keep insects like flies, bees, and wasps from ruining your outdoor enjoyment. An enclosure will protect you from the mosquitoes too! You may even barbecue inside of your enclosure, as long as you keep sufficient space (approx. 2-3 feet) between the heat of the grill and the enclosure. A screened-in pool will also protect your pool lining, giving it a longer lifespan before repair or replacement is needed.

It is very important to choose a qualified aluminum specialty contractor to insure that you receive an enclosure with solid architectural integrity. The owner of FDR Custom Enclosures, LLC has a 0% enclosure failure rate in his entire 30-plus--year history as an aluminum specialty contractor.

  • ​​​High Quality Screen

Phifer's thick vinyl-coated fiberglass screen is of a higher quality than most other screen materials. The heavy-duty screen will stand up to high winds and blistering summer heat, all without sacrificing much outward visibility. The extruded aluminum frame has a baked enamel that provides resistance against weathering, scratches, and deterioration caused by some chemicals.
