Why Retractable Screen Doors are a Good Idea

1024 683 Ryan Johnson

If you’re looking for a long-lasting solution to keeping the bugs and dust out of your home, retractable screen doors are just for you. On the cool days where you want to enjoy the outdoor space, rest assured that retractable screens would be a great addition to your deck, patio, or garage. 

Retractable screen doors are attractive for the home because of the benefits offered. The screens can be custom-made with widths up to 19’2”, can be split into different sections, and operated together. When not in use, the screen retracts into a panel box with manual or motorized controls. 

Here are some reasons why retractable screen doors are a good addition to your property:

  1. Bug Protection

No one likes when unexpected guests sneak in, and a number one selling point is the promise of bug protection. Repellents are often costly, with unpleasant smells; why not make a worthwhile investment in a screen? Keep the mosquitos and flies out of your home with the retractable screen and protect yourself from vector-borne diseases.

  1. Universal Installation

The screens are versatile and can be custom made to fit any door frame. They can be installed in single and double door ways. The installation process is also easy and cost effective, and the doors are built to be a long-lasting fixture to the home. 

  1. Retractable

Given that the screens can be retracted, they would not be constantly visible around the home. Retractable screens also give you the complete control and versatility needed while offering you the protection you need from sun, and bugs.

  1. Privacy

The comfort of privacy within your space is another reason why the screen is a good idea. Even as you open the door for fresh air  during the day and continue activities around your home, the privacy guaranteed is ideal. Our screens come with densities of 5%, 10%, and 45%.

  1. Increased Ventilation

The heat can be extremely intense at various points throughout the year. With retractable screen doors, there is an increased airflow within the home without the worries of insects intruding. Your home will feel fresh with increased ventilation. 

  1. Protect the contents of your home

The screens are a great defense against the strong UV rays from the sun. Furniture and decor fading concerns are reduced by installing our Habitat Screens. 

  1. Minimal Dust

Persons with allergies to dust and pollen will delight in knowing that the screens help safeguard against dust entering the home. Simply using a vacuum or a garden hose can clear the mesh screen of dust, while the dust entering the home would be minimal

  1. Your view remains the same

Habitat Screens are like sunglasses for your home and while it blocks harmful UV radiation and bugs from entering, it maintains your view of your garden and neighborhood. 

  1. Reduced Energy Costs

The increase in natural ventilation reduces the need for air conditioning and its costs. Less energy would be used around the home, adding an eco-friendly component. 

  1. No Trip Hazard

The low profile bottom rail of the retractable door ensures there would be no hazard of tripping over it.

  1. Safety and Security

Retractable screen doors are available with a magnetic closure system, keeping them in place. Corrosive resistant locks factor in the naturally salty air of the Caribbean. 

Retractable screen doors are a great idea with numerous benefits providing value for money. 

How to Reclaim Your Patio And Make It Your Own

How to Reclaim Your Patio And Make It Your Own

Do you use the patio as a place for a barbecue when it’s warm outside? The rest of the year, it just stands there looking pretty (or not so pretty)? The patio is an important part of your property and it can be useful all year round. Everything depends on how you design it. Thankfully, there are many easy ways to get the most out of your patio. Let’s take a look.

Choose The Right Floor

If you want the patio floor to withstand the elements while looking attractive, consider interlocking stones. They are more durable than concrete and can even resist earthquakes. They are also easy to remove and replace in case you need to get to the piping or something else underneath. You can also consider permeable paving. They act as water filters to create an environmentally friendly drain.

Install Habitat Screens

Habitat screens can turn your patio into the year-round relaxation parlor. The screens bring shade and keep insects out. They can be a wonderful solution for hot summer days and still allow for the free flow of air through your patio. These screens also don’t inhibit your view and come in fabric densities of 5%, 10%, and 45%. Meanwhile, they can keep the patio warm during the cool fall evenings. Habitat Screens definitely increase the curb appeal of your home.

Buy The Perfect Furniture

Patio furniture brings the right ambiance to the space outside your home. Tables, chairs, recliners, benches, and armchairs can make you want to spend more time on your patio. However, you have to be careful about choosing the right material:

  • Wicker – Stylish, weather-resistant, durable, and lightweight.
  • Wood – Stylish, long-lasting, durable but heavy and needs maintenance in order to avoid rotting.
  • Cast Aluminum – Lightweight and durable. Often not as stylish as other options. May not be a good choice for windy weather.
  • Wrought Iron – Durable, heavy, and age-tested material, which can be a good choice for a large patio due to its monumental appearance. Wrought means handcrafted, which makes the furniture unique.
  • Steel – Long lasting and very durable. Are quite heavy to lift (not suitable for furniture, which is often moved around) and expensive.
  • Plastic – easy to move around and can withstand the elements. Too lightweight for windy weather, not as aesthetically pleasing as other options.

Install Good Lights

Proper lighting is imperative for creating the right ambiance and adding security to your home. When it’s dark outside, only a good fixture and a bright light bulb can provide the perfect atmosphere for reading a book and having a cup of tea or coffee. Meanwhile, low energy bulbs are perfect for romantic settings. Bright lights can keep the burglars away at night while soft lights are energy efficient. The only thing limiting you when it comes to lighting is your budget.

Think About a Fireplace

Outdoor fireplaces are becoming more and more popular. They are not hard to maintain and they manage to provide sufficient heat to keep you warm during the cold days. Outdoor fireplaces are available in electric, wood, or gas. They vary in size, color, and price. A patio fireplace can substantially extend your summer.
