Traditional Screen vs. Retractable Super Screen

Whether you are building a new home or modifying an existing structure, the right screen can make a world of difference in your indoor-outdoor experience as well as the overall lasting durability and lifespan of your open airflow environments.

Traditional screens have a multitude of drawbacks. They rip and tear easily forcing you to either patch, which can be unsightly or replace the entire screen which is costly and time-consuming. The metal mesh fabric is stiff and hard to clean and dirt and grime accumulate in the corners of each frame. Over time they look aged, tattered and detract from the overall look and feel of the home itself.

Traditional Screening Rips Easily

Super Screen™ is aptly named. Super Screen™ is incredibly durable. In a 7 year test of exposure to the elements here in Florida, it lost only 1% strength with no tears or rips needing to be repaired. It is pet resistant, mold resistant, bug proof, and even fade proof.

The choice in screening is clear. Super Screen™ wins hands down every time. Your home is one of your biggest investments. Protect your investment by installing Super Screen on patios, lanais, windows and sliding doors.

Open your home and reduce allergies

Allergies

While it’s true that airborne allergies can stem from outdoor particles such as pollen or grass, one of the biggest offenders is bad indoor air quality. This can easily result from unkempt air ducts, non-replaced filters on air conditioner units, pet dander, smoking and even mold or mildew inside of the home in high humidity areas.

 

Using air purifiers, washing bedding and blankets frequently, turning on exhaust fans in the kitchen and bath, regularly bathing pets, and even stationing open boxes of baking soda inconspicuously in your home can help keep contaminants at a minimum.

 

One of the very best ways to help keep air fresh is to create an open environment in which air can flow. Having motorized power screens made of Superscreen material installed on your home allow you to leave doors and windows open that normally would not be a source of cross breeze.

 

Unlike conventional window screens, East Coast Electrical Screening’s screens are retractable, either electronically or manually. All screens are custom fit to your home. Superscreen is mildew resistant and made of an incredibly strong and tightly woven material which helps to keep particulate from blowing into your home’s indoor air environment.

Super Screen: Why We Love Them

Super Screen™ is a brand of screening here at East Coast Electric Screening, we just LOVE! We have been in the screening business for many, many years and have yet to come across a type of screening that is better than this product. We encourage our customers to consider Super Screen™ screening for the following reasons:

  • Super Screen™ is very durable. Older screening was made of fiberglass. That type would lose its elasticity over time. Over the course of a 7-year test, Super Screen only lost 1% of its strength. The test exposed it to sunlight and weather conditions.
  • Pet owners should invest in this type of screening. Pets can wreak havoc on screens when they see another dog walking by or want to get out to chase a squirrel, etc. Super Screen™ makes claw marks from pets barely even visible. This reduces the number of times that you will need to replace your screens due to scratches.
  • Believe it or not, these screens are tear-proof and puncture-proof. The strands are extra strong, yet still very lightweight. The company that makes Super Screen™ has a special technology that makes their screens very strong.
  • In Florida, mold and mildew abound due to the humidity levels. These organisms readily attach to screening around lanais and pool cages. The fabric used in Super Screen resists mildew, which is sought after by homeowners.
  • The sun here in Florida can be extreme. Super Screen™ is fade resistant. They are manufactured with a UV protectant, which keeps your screens looking new year after year.
  • The small hold sizes available help keep out even the tiniest of bugs. You can enjoy your lanai or pool area without the need for bug repellant. The sizes offered can be so small that it can even block up to 50% of the sun’s rays.

This amazing screening even comes with a 10-year limited warranty. That is unheard of in the screening industry. Trust us, we know!

Motorized Electric Screens Are Perfect for Cooler Months

The hot, muggy summer months are almost behind us. At times now, you can even feel a touch of coolness in the air. Now that it is October, we have the winter months to look forward to in Florida. The winter season is a beautiful time of the year down here and many people like to enjoy the cooler weather on their lanais. Our motorized electric screens make it easy to transition from an open area to an enclosed, more private area for you and your family to enjoy.

With the cooler months coming, you might want to take some time to inspect your current screens. If they need cleaning or repair, now is the time to do it. If they need replacing, then we highly recommend motorized electric screens. Not only will they be easier to raise and lower, but your friends, family, and neighbors will think highly of the technology. We can’t tell you how many compliments that we get on our own motorized screens in our own homes as well as our customer’s homes.

With the Zika virus spreading through the south Florida area right now, having some type of screening in place is crucial to avoid mosquito bites. Our Super Screen product is tough, won’t tear, and will keep little pesky biting and stinking bugs out of your living spaces.

You may decide, like a lot of Floridians, that once the weather cools a bit to turn off the air conditioner and open up the doors and windows to “air out” the house. It is always a nice option to be able to let fresh air into the home. The cross ventilation moves stale air from the summer out and cleans fresh air inside your home. Having motorized electric screens in place is ideal to fully enjoy your winter months. Call us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about the high-quality screening that we offer.

What are Motorized Electric Screens?

Motorized electric screens are exactly what they sound like. They are screens that are installed on your home that open up electronically. There is no need to manually pull them down or try to push them up into their housing. With the touch of a button, you are able to either open or shut the screening.

Why use motorized electric screens? Here in Florida, there are many nights, especially in the winter, that you can sit on your back porch and enjoy the cool breezes. By having a screen in place, you can enjoy it without bugs pestering you. When you have the screening down, it will keep debris from trees and bushes from blowing into your sitting area. Motorized screens are great for those who have pets as well. It is a way to contain them during those times that you do not want them running free in the back yard. If you like to host gatherings, the screening easily can be drawn down so that any food buffet is not touched by pests.

Are motorized electric screens bulky and an eye sore? No, absolutely not. This type of screening conveniently rolls up into a discreet housing unit that is custom fitted to blend into your home as much as possible. There are even different colors for the housing unit that can blend to your home’s exterior color.

I like the technology of the Super Screen. Can that be used in a motorized electric screening application? Yes, definitely. The Super Screen is a very popular type of screen that has an amazing warranty due to its resistance to tearing and puncturing. This is a perfect screen for those who own animals or are concerned about the high winds during Florida’s many storms.

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.

The History of Screens

Isn’t it nice that we can sit in our screened in porch and enjoy a cup of coffee during the morning without bees, wasps and critters bothering us? Screens are an unsung hero. To those reading this, we’ve always had them, so we don’t appreciate them as much as we should. It wasn’t too long ago that windows and doors didn’t have screening on them. The windows were either open or closed, which affected the view, ventilation, and the lack of insect, animal, and debris control.

The first wire screens were recorded in 1825 as “woven wire” screens. From that point on, “woven wire window” screens caught on. In the 1840’s Gilbert and Bennett Manufacturing invented wire mesh window screens. The first patent for screens was in 1868 by Bayley and McCluskey to be used on railcars to provide ventilation while protecting passengers from the dust and sparks of the running train. Window screens then evolved into preventing insects from entering residential homes through windows, which, over time, reduced the number of parasitic diseases in the United States. Most operable windows in the USA and Canada have window screens on them nowadays.

It has been less than 100 years since the window screen came into existence. Since then, we have SuperScreens which prevent tearing, punctures and mildew growth. We also have screens that provide UV protection, screens that display an image like a painting, bug free screens that keep out even the teeny tiny No-see-ums, and motorized screens. Our porches and lanai’s have screening so sunny days can be enjoyed without animals and insects invading our space. It also helps to keep children and pets inside the enclosed space, providing a safety feature. Our doors have screens on them now too. Front doors, back doors, sliding glass doors and even garage doors all are now available with various types of screens.
