Lanai repair at 8002

Our pool is fully surrounded by a lanai, a metal frame covered in mesh, to keep the insects away – but over the years it’s developed some quite big holes and splits at the bottom (I think mostly caused by lawn maintenance). We decided to try repairing it ourselves, and it turned out successful!

Pulling out the old mesh is hard, and it’s a little tricky keeping the tension on the new mesh. If the tension is too much, it’s impossible to push the mesh and rubber in to the frame groove – but too little tension leaves the mesh untidy and sagging. Still, we are pleased with the result on this first panel.
