With updated modernized architecture in Florida homes, air flow has been a big consideration. Windows have gotten bigger, multiple tier sliding glass doors have often been installed, large lanai and patio areas included, Roman arches span upwards making areas feel larger, and double French doors open wide breaking up the space and letting fresh air in.
Up until recently traditional mesh screens comprised of metal wire, fiberglass or other synthetic fibers stretched inside of a wooden or metal frame were the only choice to cover these areas if the home owner wanted to be able to open the house up, especially during buggy seasons.
They do a great job, the problem becomes that over time the screen can get stretched, frayed, pulled, snagged, may have small holes in it or even rip. At that point they then need to be patched, replaced entirely or rescreened which requires measuring, cutting, a special hand tool and rubberized splining. This replacement technique looks easier than it actually is and can take some time and patience if you opt to do it yourself.
If you choose aluminum or fiberglass screens the biggest issue is that the crimp along the splined edge doesn’t hold because the screen itself is too flexible, which leaves you with lose fitting screens which look sloppy and unprofessional. Galvanized steel is a better choice, giving you a tight fit, but it will still succumb to the elements over time giving your home a more weathered aged look.
The best choice is to update your living space with the addition of SuperScreen. SuperScreen fabric has an extrusion-coated polyester core yarn, which results in vastly superior strength that is 300% stronger than other screen types and extends the life of the product.
Benefits: Superscreen is unlike anything that has previously been on the market.
- Homeowners who were finding it necessary to replace their screens every 3-5 years no longer have to do so
