Southern California is blessed with beautiful weather almost year-round. There are many reasons to grill outdoors. Keep the patio doors wide open so that fresh air can enter. To keep pests and unwanted debris out of your home, screen doors are a must.
One common question I receive is whether homeowners should choose to install retractable screens or traditional sliding screen doors. These are the pros and cons of each option.
SLIDING/ROLLING SCREEN DOORS
This type of screen door is most familiar to patio and side door users. These screens are usually installed on the outside of metal patio sliders and cover one side. Sliding screen doors are invisible and will not detract from the appearance of your home if they are correctly installed. Sliding screens doors allow for fresh air and dirt to pass through, making it very cost-effective. Rolling screen doors can be made to your specifications, starting at $175. For pricing, click here
Sliding screen doors with pets are the most common type of repair. Most pets will paw at the screen until it tears or frays. Or they may accidentally tear it. A sliding screen door is not the best choice in these cases, as it may require a more robust pet mesh or grille.
Retractable screen doors are becoming more popular, even though they have been around for many decades. Retractable screen doors can be “disappearing” into the housing chamber, which increases the material’s lifetime. They can be mounted on all doors in a house, including front doors and French doors.
Retractable screen manufacturers offer many different housing colors to fit the home’s trim. Clearview retractable screens doors offer 11 standard colors. They can also create custom powder coat colors of up to 300 shades.
Clearview is the only company to have patented technology that prevents the retractable screens from sliding back into the housing. This is an issue that is very problematic for other brands.
Although retractable screen doors can be more expensive than traditional rolling screens, they are still very affordable at $400 per door. But I am confident that you will love them! For a precise estimate, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
Clear View retractable screen doors will provide more screen “give” than traditional screens. This will keep the screen from toppling. It can be easily reattached if your pet runs through the screen. Retractable screens can also be made from pet mesh to stop tears and scratching.
