We just bought a home in Retonda West and are in need of someone to fix some of our panels on our pool cage. Does anyone know of someone reputable and reasonable?
Since we are new kids, we are also looking for the best Chinese restaurant, the best Tex Mex Restaurant and the best sports bar to watch Peyton Manning and the Broncos!!!

How old is the cage? Contractor grade fiberglass is good for 7 or 8 yrs; if the screens are that old, you might be better off just doing the whole thing. Check carefully around the edges for tears; if you find a few, it's only a matter of time. We redid ours with the fine super screen, which has a 15 yr warranty. More expensive, but we're happy with the result. Scott's Screens did ours.

I was planning to have ours re-done with no-see um but then a neighbor said that heavy rains may collapse the ceiling portion (ours is an older cage whereas the entire top is horizontal). Have you had any issues with the rains?

We have 4 panels across the roof - 2 horizontal panels between an arched one on eack side. No problem so far, but we've only had one rain I would call really heavy. It actually breaks the rain up into a fine mist, and it holds water in the little holes for awhile after the storm. It's more pliable than the fiberglass, so it waves a little in high wind, like old fiberglass, but it's still tight afterward. It blocks a lot more sun than the old screens, but finer fiberglass would too. How big are your horizontal panels? If they're really wide, I can see where that could possibly be a problem. I guess you could put the 16x14 on top, and the 17x20 on the sides (do I have those numbers right? I think so).
