Methods Used to Prepare Pool Cage Cost Estimates
Pool screen projects are usually priced on a per square foot basis. The contractor will help you determine which type of enclosure is best for your home pool and measure the area where the enclosure will be installed. This will help determine how much labor is needed and what materials need to be ordered. If you wish to install doors or other additional features, prices may increase.

Reasons for Pool Screen Cost Variances
Screen enclosure companies use a combination of methods to evaluate and price projects. They take several factors into consideration that impact the cost of the project, including:
Square feet. Square footage is the primary cost consideration. Larger enclosed areas may have a lower cost per square foot than smaller areas (discounts may apply as the size of the project increases).
Type of enclosure. Some types of enclosures are more expensive or difficult to install – which may increase the cost of the project. (Glass and polycarbonate enclosures cost more than screen enclosures).
Doors. If you wish to add doors or gates for pets, there may be an additional cost for the doors and installation labor.
Environmental factors. If you live in an area that gets a lot of snow or wind, you may need a heavier duty enclosure which may increase the cost of the project.
Geography. If you are in a high-cost area or in an area that is difficult to reach (more travel time), then costs will generally be higher.
