Approximate cost of pool cage rescreen?

We're currently shopping for a home in the St. Petersburg/Bradenton area of Florida. A lot of the places we're looking at have pool cages that either need rescreening now or will soon. Can anyone tell me the very approximate cost of a top-quality rescreen? Obviously this is going to depend greatly on the size of the cage and other factors, but let's assume a smallish cage. On the last one we looked at, the property assessor's sketch showed it as 20x43. Just a rough estimate. $500? $2000? $5000? More?

    My screen person charges about $1.50 per sqft to rescreen. Your cost should be 20 x 43 x 1.50 = $1250. We live in Jacksonville. Hope this helps

    Square footage of the actual screen panels? 20X43 would be just for the "roof" panels. You would need height for each of the walls, then work up the $$ for those too.

    Or a general purpose square foot measured by floor space? In which case "never mind" (with apology to Emily Litella).

    lbridges, I think you are correct. I forgot about the walls:(

    In any case the screen should be good for about 10 yrs unless you have a good storm......

    As Chris says a basic 1 story cage usually lingers around $1/sqft pf screen -- it really depends on the region. A 20x43 would probably be $1500-2500.

    Always make sure to hire a licensed contractor even for a re-screen. I cannot find a contractors license for 'Sun-Tech Aluminum'. Find out why you should here: http://enclosurenetwork.com/the-real-deal-contractors-licenses-re-screens/
