Maximize Summer Comfort Using MagnaTrack Instead of Traditional Pool Enclosures


As the summer sun rises higher and temperatures soar, homeowners with backyard pools often seek refuge from the heat while still wanting to enjoy the outdoors.

One popular solution is the installation of a pool screen enclosure. These structures offer a range of benefits, but they also come with their own set of drawbacks, particularly during the scorching summer months.

In this blog, we’ll explore the pros and cons of screen enclosures, with a focus on how they impact houses with backyard pools. Furthermore, we’ll reveal how MagnaTrack’s innovative products can effectively address the challenges posed by traditional screen enclosures.

MagnaTrack Screens® Solves Residential Screen Problems

We understand the needs of homeowners seeking to maximize their outdoor living spaces while minimizing hassle and maintenance. That’s why we’ve developed MagnaTrack screens, a revolutionary solution that addresses the challenges associated with traditional screen enclosures.

Our screen enclosures feature a retractable design, allowing homeowners to control their exposure to the sun. With the touch of a button, the screens can be opened to let in more sunlight or closed to provide shade and privacy.

We utilize high-quality materials in the construction of MagnaTrack products, ensuring durability and longevity. The screens are engineered to withstand the elements, including wind, rain, and UV exposure, minimizing the risk of wear and tear.

MagnaTrack screen enclosures are designed with ease of maintenance in mind. The screens are resistant to mold and mildew, making them easy to clean with just soap and water. This reduces the time and effort required to keep the enclosure looking its best.

We offer a range of customizable options for MagnaTrack Screens, allowing homeowners to tailor the design to their specific preferences and needs. From size and color to additional features like motorized operation, there’s a solution for every lifestyle.

MagnaTrack Screens effectively resolves common issues, allowing homeowners to enjoy all the advantages of a screen enclosure without compromising on comfort, convenience, or style.

Five Pros of Backyard Pool Screen Enclosures

  1. Enhanced Comfort: Screen enclosures provide a shaded and ventilated space, shielding homeowners and their guests from the direct glare of the sun. This creates a comfortable environment for relaxation and socializing, even on the hottest days. A well-built screen enclosure will also keep away bugs so you can enjoy your swim without being eaten by insects.
  2. Reduced Maintenance: By keeping leaves, debris, and insects at bay, screen enclosures help to minimize the maintenance required for both the pool and the surrounding area. This translates to more time spent enjoying the pool and less time spent cleaning it.
  3. Extended Outdoor Season: With a screen enclosure, homeowners can make the most of their outdoor space throughout the year. The structure provides protection from inclement weather, allowing for outdoor activities even during rainy or windy days. By providing protection from the elements, screen enclosures can extend the swimming season by allowing homeowners to use their pool earlier in the spring and later into the fall.
  4. Increased Safety: For households with children or pets, a screen enclosure adds an extra layer of safety by preventing accidental access to the pool area. This peace of mind is invaluable, especially for busy parents or pet owners.
  5. More Privacy: Screen enclosures create a barrier between the pool area and the surrounding neighborhood or yard, making homeowners feel more comfortable using their pool without feeling exposed. Choose screens that allow viewers to see out of the screen but prevent visibility through the screen from the outside.

Statistics show that U.S. homeowners use their backyard pool more often if it has screen enclosure compared to those without. Read “Why Aluminum Pool Enclosures Are the Best Option” to discover the advantages and distinct features of aluminum pool enclosures.

Five Cons of Backyard Pool Screen Enclosures

  1. Limited Sun Exposure: While screen enclosures offer shade, they also restrict direct sunlight. For sun worshippers looking to soak up some rays, this can be a downside. Additionally, reduced sun exposure may impact vitamin D absorption, which is essential for overall health.
  2. Higher Initial Cost: The installation of a screen enclosure represents a significant upfront investment. Some homeowners may hesitate to commit to this expense, especially if they’re unsure about the long-term benefits.
  3. Maintenance Challenges: While screen enclosures reduce the amount of debris entering the pool area, they require regular cleaning and upkeep to remain in optimal condition so debris doesn’t pile up around the space.
  4. Potential for Wear and Tear: Over time, screen enclosures may experience wear and tear due to exposure to the elements. Damage from wind, rain, and UV rays can diminish the structural integrity of the enclosure, leading to necessary repairs or replacement.
  5. Dealing With the Elements: Mold, mildew, and other vegetation can become a problem in a moist environment and can mar the overall look of the enclosure. The maintenance required to keep the screens clean and free of any unsightly growth can be time-consuming and may deter some homeowners.
