Venetian Builders, Inc., South Florida’s most respected builder of patio enclosures, screened enclosures and sunrooms, is helping owners strengthen older structures built before the strict new Florida Building Code went into effect. Venetian Builders serves homeowners and businesses in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach and surrounding areas.
The standards in the new building code are intended to protect consumers from the ravaging effects of hurricane winds on patio and pool enclosures. Now owners of enclosures built before the state of Florida enacted the tougher standards can obtain many of the benefits that go into new hurricane-strength patio and pool enclosures.
Homeowners save thousands of dollars with a Venetian custom code upgrade, compared with building an entirely new patio enclosure. Venetian Builders craftsmen can fortify older aluminum framing to increase wind resistance before hurricanes hit. Code-focused upgrades become especially important to owners of enclosures and sunrooms in coastal communities such as Jupiter, Stuart, West Palm Beach, Pinecrest, Hollywood and others.
Among the improvements made to screened enclosures and other existing structures are stronger gusset plates and heavier or additional bracing that combine to increase rigidity. Venetian also uses corrosion-resistant fasteners. The effect of the improvements is to increase safety by transferring the force of high winds to the base of the enclosure, away from the framing.
Venetian designs upgrades to be attractive and to blend with the character of existing enclosures. Gusset plates and braces, for example, are custom-cut to fit; they never look tacked on. This is crucial in communities where homeowners associations may review designs before installation, as in Westin.
Venetian Builders can design custom upgrades for its own structures or those built by other companies.
Chris Noe, president of Venetian Builders, called the upgrades of a patio enclosure, pool enclosure or sunroom a savvy consumer choice. “Upgrades provide an investment not just in your home but also in your peace of mind,” he said. As South Florida’s leading installer of patio and pool enclosures and sunrooms, Venetian Builders can use its deep experience to make upgrades as efficient and inexpensive as possible, he said.
Venetian Builders offers South Florida homeowners free estimates of costs and the time needed to upgrade outdoor living structures.
