Which Style of Pool Enclosure is Right For You?

Updated: May 2, 2022

So, you've decided that it's time to add a custom enclosure to your outdoor pool. You're not alone! Custom swimming pool enclosures are some of the first pool upgrades Florida Pool Enclosures customers make and for good reason. Pool enclosures keep the pool and outdoor patio areas free from excess leaves and debris, reducing maintenance while extending the life of your pool.

While they're functional, pool enclosures can also be a bit of a design statement as well — as there are several different pool enclosure styles to choose from. If you're a Central Florida pool owner, you have three options when it comes to a screen enclosure: mansard, gable, or dome.

Types of Pool Enclosures

  • 1. Mansard Roof Swimming Pool Enclosures

  • 2. Gable Roof Swimming Pool Enclosures

  • 3. Dome Roof Swimming Pool Enclosures

Mansard Roof Pool Enclosures

Mansard-style enclosures are the most popular type of swimming pool enclosure in Central Florida. They're available in both aluminum and vinyl, and they come in a variety of colors to complement your home's exterior. The mansard roof pool enclosure is also the most affordable option, making a mansard roof enclosure an ideal choice for homeowners shopping for screen enclosures on a budget. Lastly, they provide the highest level of ventilation and light penetration out of all three types of swimming pool enclosures — so if you're looking for a sun-soaked patio and pool area, mansard roof enclosures are a perfect choice. There's a good reason why most swimming pool enclosures are in the mansard roof style, as this style of pool enclosure is perfect for just about any homeowner.

Gable Roof Pool Enclosures

While gable-style enclosures are similar to mansard-style in that they both feature a ridge beam at the top, gable roof swimming pool enclosures differ in their sloped roof. Gable roof enclosures have more headroom than mansard roof enclosures, making them an ideal choice for homeowners looking for a more open pool area. Gable-style enclosures are available in both aluminum and vinyl, and they come in a variety of colors to express your design taste and match your home's exterior.

Dome Roof Pool Enclosures

Dome-style pool enclosures have the most architectural design out of our pool enclosure styles, and the domed shape also lends more wind resistance to the enclosure. Dome roof pool enclosures are available in multiple high-quality materials, and they come in a variety of colors to match your home's exterior. Despite the name, the roof slope slopes toward the pool area quite gradually — giving the enclosure a truly majestic look. Dome roof pool enclosures are an excellent choice for homeowners who appreciate the finer details and want the absolute best in terms of quality and features in their pool enclosure.
