In the warm weather months, opening doors and windows lets in the fresh air, and creates some great cross-ventilation to keep your entire house cool. However, while you certainly want to let in the fresh air, you probably don’t want to let the bugs in with it.
If you’re going to enjoy the fresh air this season, you’re going to want to invest in some retractable screens for your home. Screen doors provide a barrier to insects, without obstructing the view. These doors are spring-loaded, and retract to one or both sides into a cassette, so they are out of site and out of the way.
It’s not just doors and windows that are a good fit for screens. You can also get custom-designed retractable garage door screens, as well as retractable screens for porches and patios. This was, these indoor-outdoor spaces can be enjoyed as a bug-free environment.
There are a number of different ways to customize your screens to suit your needs. If you want to relax in your seat while opening or closing your screens, you can get a remote control. If you have pets that tend to shred your screens, you can invest in heavier-duty pet-resistant screens.
The best part about these retractable screens is that you can install them yourself! It takes no more than 20 minutes and 6-12 screws to install your new screen, and it will fit seamlessly right into the decor of your home.
Don’t let the insects that accompany nice weather keep you shut up in your house with no fresh air. Retractable screens will enable you to enjoy the fresh air, while staying bug-free. This summer, enjoy a nice dinner out on your front porch, or enjoy a beer in your garage man cave, without being bothered by annoying flies or mosquitoes.
