Windows are fantastic for opening up airflow and letting more natural light into your home, but what if you had the option of leaving your doors wide open too?

 

Our custom manual retractable screens for single doors or French doors will allow you to air out your home on breezy days without the fear of bugs getting in or children or pets sneaking out unnoticed.

When you are able to leave the doors open, it visually creates a far larger area making your home look and feel more spacious. They are wonderful for entertaining guests as well as just enjoying your home yourself.

 

If you have pets these door screens are a life saver. The Super Screen material is pet snag resistant and animals love to lay looking outside as it gives them a new lower view and window on the world with no visual interruptions.

 

Our retractable door screens retract smoothly into a sleek, discreet housing installed inside or outside the door frame. Because of the modern compact design they do not disturb or distract from the look of the home and are secure even during hurricanes.

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.

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.

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.

If you’re looking for a nice, breezy place to call home, without the fear of bugs, give us a call at (561)-746-2622. www.eastcoastelectricscreening.com. We serve Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties.

Heat Safety and Why It’s So Important

Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in America, resulting in hundreds of deaths each year. Electric screens can help keep the heat out. They also don’t affect your view. While you don’t have to worry about the heat causing any long-term damage while you’re inside, heat safety is still a very prevalent issue in the Sunshine State.

North American summers are hot and they’re hot everywhere, all over the country. Most summers see staggering heat waves in one or more parts of the U.S., but lately, this trend has been spreading to nearly the whole county, not to mention the world. So, it’s best to know what to do if something happens to you or someone you love.

Heat stroke

This is one of the most serious heat-related disorders. This happens when the body’s temperature rises quickly and you’re unable to sweat, meaning your body is unable to cool down. When heat stroke occurs, your body’s temperature can climb to 106 degrees Fahrenheit or higher— within 10 to 15 minutes. If emergency treatment is not given, heat stroke can cause death or permanent disability.

Symptoms:

  • Chills
  • Hallucinations
  • Hot, dry skin
  • High body temperature
  • Painful headache
  • Slurred speech
  • Confusion/dizziness

If this happens, move the person affected to a cool shaded area, soak their clothes in water and spray/sponge/shower them with it. Also, fan their body and call 911.

Heat Exhaustion

Heat exhaustion means your body lost a lot of water and salt, usually through extreme sweating.

Symptoms: 

  • Nausea
  • Muscle cramps
  • Dizziness and confusion
  • Heavy sweating
  • Extreme weakness or fatigue
  • Clammy, moist skin
  • Fast, shallow breathing

If this happens, have the person rest in a cool, shaded or air-conditioned area. They must also drink plenty of water. This is crucial. Also, a cool shower, bath or sponge bath is highly recommended.

Are Your Screens Safe This Hurricane Season?

Hurricane season is currently upon us, and many Floridians have already taken action in preventing their homes from acquiring damage. And while screens provide us with shade and element protection during the busy hurricane off-season months, these protective screens are often the first thing that gets damaged when a hurricane actually hits. Modern construction allows most homes to go relatively unscathed, but many residents return to their homes after a hurricane only to find that the screen over their lanai is completely gone or the screen over their pool is so damaged that it must be replaced – usually quite expensively.

The solution comes in the form of electric screens, screens that can easily be retracted when not in use or during storms, and let back down just as easily. East Coast Electric Screening is the leading electric screen company on the east coast of Florida, offering flexible and affordable plans to make sure your home is comfortable and protected year-round. Our screens are not only custom designed to fit nearly any opening in your home – lanais, windows, garage doors – but they are also virtually indestructible.

East Coast Electric Screenings utilizes our very own SuperScreen technology, producing screens that are mildew resistant, puncture resistant, and fire retardant. SuperScreen outlasts typical fiberglass screens, and, because we are so confident in the reliability of our screens, we even offer a Ten Year Limited Warranty on every screen we install. Our contractors will always work along with our customer’s desires and expectations, insuring that every customer ends up happy and with a product that they love.

Most people come to Florida to enjoy the beautiful weather year-round, and motorized electric screens can provide your family with the tools it needs to truly enjoy the Florida atmosphere. Whether your electric screen is used during the day to keep children and pets from wandering away, or at night to allow a cool and refreshing breeze to run through the house while preventing pesky insects from entering along with it, the flexibility your screen provides can cater to any situation.

Call East Coast Electric Screening today at 1-888-41SCREEN, and make sure your home is not only ready for hurricane season, but ready for entertaining and enjoy the Florida lifestyle with your friends and family, every day of the year.
