Retractable Screen Doors Perfect for Homeowners

Retractable screen doors are the wave of the future. Goodbye to the days of screen doors slamming shut and opening in the wrong direction. There are a few reasons why the retractable technology of today’s doors is ideal for family homes.

  • You will not have to worry about children’s little toes and fingers getting slammed in the door. The traditional type of screen doors can catch kid’s fingers when it closes, whereas the new retractable screen doors are designed to slide back into its housing, making it nearly impossible for anyone to pinch their fingers.
  • Retractable screen doors are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Since the screens pull back to the side of the door, it disappears from sight which puts your door on display instead of a screen door. There are housing colors that can blend into the color of your home. The curb appeal increases for houses that have retractable screen doors installed. This is especially important for those who have purchased beautiful front doors, yet would like a screen door at the same time.
  • Retractable screen doors will allow you to open the door and allow fresh air into your home without the worry of pests entering your home. This is ideal for those homeowners who have pets. Your door can stay open and keep your pet safely indoors.
  • The retracting capability allows you to have a screen door when you want and to not have a screen door when you do not want one. You can use it when needed and then put it away when not in use. They are easy to open and close. You can opt to have them shut manually or electronically with remote control based on their use and your mobility.

Retractable Screens Perfect for Summer Parties

Retractable Screens

The summer season has begun and that means pool parties, neighborhood bar-b-ques, and family reunions. Retractable screens made of our Super Screen material will keep your family and friends comfortable on the lanai during those hot summer months.

Even the humidity and heat of summers here in Florida cannot keep people from wanting to enjoy the outdoor environment. We can only stay inside our air conditioned homes so long before needing to breathe some fresh outside air. By having a retractable screen on your lanai, it gives you the option of enjoying the outdoors without all of the bugs and debris entering your living area.

By screening in your back or front porch area, this opens up more living space for your family, including the family pets. It gives your pets the opportunity to experience the outdoors while staying safe and remaining cool in a shaded area. Your pet will be able to enjoy the celebrations on your lanai along with your family and you will not have the concern that he/she will get lost.

What is perfect about retractable screens is that you have the option to open up the space with a remote control device. Or keep the screen down to use it as protection from the outside elements that you do not desire to have in your living space such as bugs, animals and leaves.

Your summer parties will be spectacular when you are able to position your lanai screen to make your guests feel comfortable. No stinging bees during the daytime and no mosquitoes will bother your guests should you entertain into the evening. We all want our party guests to have a fun time and not have the worry of swatting away bees or covering food to keep flies off of it.

When using our screening, you can decorate your lanai and not worry about items blowing away into the yard. With the screen in the down position, it will contain everything in the unfortunate event of a Florida thunderstorm, which is common during the summer months. So, all of your planning for the party décor will be the hit as you had planned it to be. Decorate away without worry!

Contact East Coast Electric Screening for more information on our retractable screens and how we can benefit you and your summer parties. We look forward to hearing from you. Call us today at 888-41SCREEN or visit us online.

Extruded vs Roll Aluminum Housing

You’ve invested in your home to make it a beautiful, warm and welcoming retreat from the world. The retractable screens that you want to add should complement your home’s aesthetic appeal. Not only should you look at the visual aspect of the screens, but also make sure that the components are made of quality materials.

Here at East Coast Electric Screening, we only use extruded aluminum housings for our screens. This term might not mean much to you, but once a big storm comes through, you’ll be glad that you chose this superior product over other flimsy housings.

Extruded aluminum is the term used for the manufacturing of this type of housing. It is made of a thicker aluminum, whereas the rolled aluminum is about the strength of a soda can. Which one would you want to have in the midst of a hurricane? We’d venture to say extruded.

Not only do we use SuperScreen, a strong puncture and mildew resistant screen, our retractable screens roll up into an extruded aluminum housing. This strong housing can be custom recessed during new home builds or mounted above or below the door or window opening in existing homes. This discreet and slim mounting will keep the screen securely tucked away when it is not in use.

Extruded aluminum wears better than rolled aluminum due to the manufacturing process. It is heavier, has mitered corners and won’t bend as easy as rolled aluminum, which a lot lighter. You also won’t have to worry about the color fading from sunlight and other environmental exposures like you would if you have rolled aluminum framing and housing.

If you would like to talk to us about adding a new retractable screen to your home, contact us at East Coast Electric Screening by either visiting our website at www.eastcoastelectricscreening.com or call us at 888-41SCREEN.

Increase the Livability of Your Home with Motorized Electric Screens

superscreen

Adding square footage to your home by way of additions can get expensive. What if there was an alternative way to make your homes living areas feel and appear more spacious?

As the weather becomes more mild here during the fall and winter months in Florida many of us turn off our over worked air conditioning units and begin opening windows. Fresh air fills our homes giving us a reprieve from the hot months of being closed off indoors breathing in recirculated air.

Part of the beauty of living here is the incredible weather during otherwise frigid winter months.

One of the best ways to maximize the ability to enjoy that is to visually bring the outdoors in. Opening windows works wonders, but can be limiting. By installing retractable remote control power screens on archways, patios, lanais and French doors as well as your windows you can visually extend the actual living space. Whether its opening the house up when hosting a party allowing for even more guests or working in your garage without feeling cooped up, adding screens create a more breathable and flexible environment.

Summer months are lovely for outdoor lanai picnics or laying out, but often times being bitten by bugs sends us packing (and scratching) back inside. When your home is equipped with motorized screens, with just a press of a button bugs are no longer an issue. You are easily able to appreciate the beauty of the outdoors while still hanging on to the protection of being inside.

Each remote control retractable power screen is constructed with Superscreen material which is puncture resistant, tear resistant, and even fire retardant and guaranteed for a full 10 years. All screens are personally measured and custom fit to your home. When retracted they are low profile and slide right into a slim 4.5” extruded aluminum housing. If designed during new home construction screens can be completely recessed and hidden from site.

Retractable Screens – Sunshine In / Bugs Out

The weather in Florida was meant to be enjoyed – after all, isn’t that why most people choose to live here in the first place? To truly enjoy the Florida lifestyle to its fullest, you need a home or office with large windows and open spaces, so you can enjoy both the stellar views and the ocean breezes at the same time. And while this sounds like a relaxing fantasy straight out of a Florida brochure, homeowners and business owners often find that the reality is far less appealing, and that more often than not, pesky bugs and other annoyances often find their ways into your home along with the warm sunshine and cool breezes.

Fortunately, with an electric retractable screen from East Coast Electric Screening you can truly have the best of both worlds. Our retractable screening products can be sized to fit virtually any opening in your home – windows, French doors, archways, patios and lanais, and even garage doors – and are slim, discreet, and simple for anyone to use. Most importantly, our screens are able to seamlessly integrate and merge your indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing you and your guests to enjoy the Florida weather and scenery, right from the comfort of most any room in your house.

While Florida is affectionately known as the “Sunshine State,” residents know that the weather can quickly turn nasty, especially during the dreaded hurricane season and rainy summer months. East Coast Electric Screening combats these fears with the use of SuperScreen, a powerful technology that in turn creates screens that are mildew resistant, puncture and tear resistant, and fire retardant. And though our screens are virtually indestructible, we still offer our customers added peace of mind by providing a Ten Year Limited Warranty with each and every installation we perform.

Not only do you never have to worry about potential damage to your screen, but you can also feel safer knowing exactly who and what is coming and going from your home. Feel free to open up the house and let the air flow through, without having to worry that your pets or small children are slipping out under your nose and getting into trouble. And in addition to keeping your home open without letting anything out, you can also ensure that no mosquitos, no-see-ums, or small rodents are letting themselves in uninvited at the same time. Your home can stay comfortable and well ventilated while you simply kick back and enjoy it.

If you’d like to make the most out of your Florida lifestyle and maximize your enjoyment of the beautiful weather year round, then contact us today to explore your options with East Coast Electric Screening. We are proud to have had our screens featured on HGTV, and gladly service Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Jupiter, and the surrounding areas of Southeast Florida. Visit East Coast Electric Screening.

The Benefits of Screening for Kids & Pets

Old doors are clunky and sometimes they can even be dangerous. Screen doors and French doors are good in theory, but they can do things like slam on someone’s finger and hurt it, maybe even break it. This could happen to an adult or a child. Children run around and play and they often don’t pay attention to what they’re doing, focusing instead on the game at hand. Adults can get injured, too. We all forget things when we’re running late. Sometimes the door could hit you if you’re not paying attention while you’re frantically running back into your home to retrieve the forgotten item. If it does hit you, it likely won’t result in a serious injury. But accidents can happen. If the door hits a child, it’s probable that they could get injured more severely—because they’re smaller.

French or screen doors could also hurt or injure a pet. If Fido is chasing that tennis ball, he’s not going to stop and think about the screen or French door in front of him. A gust of wind could cause it to slam or, if it’s strong enough, knock it off its hinges.

With Clear View invisible screen doors, you won’t have that problem. And you can barely even tell they’re there. You can open up your doors and still have privacy. The invisible screen doors help keep airflow intact and best of all; they keep bugs and curious neighbors at bay. The invisible doors are tinted so you can see outside, but no one can see in.

These are especially pertinent in South Florida when the average temperature can reach 90-100 degrees. It’s also a nice feeling to be able to have the summer breeze travel throughout your home without having to worry about wasting the AC.

Why a Retractable Power Screen is Right For You

At East Coast Electric Screenings, our number one goal is to keep your home protected from bugs and pests, while making it as airy and open as possible.

If you’re building a new home or office, then you’ve come to the right place. Our certified installers are trained to ensure your satisfaction. And the best part is that our screens are virtually indestructible. No more flimsy and fragile screens that pop out with the least bit of pressure.

When one of our screens is pushed in, it gives in to the pressure being applied to it. When that pressure is released, however, the screen will return to a taut position.

What we offer:

  • Garage doors
  • Patios, decks, verandas and lanais
  • Roman archways
  • Windows
  • French doors

Superscreen

We use Superscreen, a product with many unique benefits. It is puncture, mildew and fire resistant. It also outlasts traditional fiberglass screens, and comes with a 10-year-limited-warranty.

The advantages of electric retractable power screens

They’re designed to maximize your living space and to bring the outside, in.

Each retractable power screen is custom fitted so that it discreetly blends into your patio, garage door, veranda or balcony. All you need is a remote to open or close them. It’s that simple.

When winter comes around, you’ll be able to feel that cool Florida breeze in your home without letting in the creepy crawlies. How does it work? Motorized electric screens can be closed to allow a breeze throughout the house—but there will be a thin barrier in place to protect your home against unwelcome visitors.

During the day, the screens can be closed to reduce the amount of heat and sunlight.

Screening for Privacy

When we’re home alone with the window screens up, house exposed for all to see, we often do not consider expectations of privacy. We hear about parents being hesitant to let their kids stay home alone, but we often do not hear about how the adult feels. A national survey from Wakefield Research found that nearly 74 percent of business travelers say their stay-behind spouse has raised concerns about being left home alone.

If you’re not fond of being the only one home in your humble abode, rest assured there are thousands of solutions to make you feel more at ease. One excellent rule of thumb is to always lock your doors and always, always double check that you did in fact lock them. Heck, even triple check the locks. It never hurts to be safe and a little overly cautious.

Another good idea and excellent safety plan is getting to know your neighbors. If you’re lucky enough to find a neighborhood full of charming and friendly people, it’s not a bad idea to take advantage and check in with them while the rest of your family is away. A neighborhood watch program is also ideal. According to FBI reports, areas with an active Neighborhood Watch program are 43 percent less likely to experience criminal activity.

Electric window screens offer privacy and are a great way to keep cool air in and bugs and heat out. They’re great for South Florida and even better when we’re more aware of privacy within our own home. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
