The Beauty is in the details

superscreen

While yes, we all do look at and take in the overall impact and picture of a home, but when asked what it was a about a specific home that buyers liked, it inevitably always comes down to the details. The molding, the trim, the colors chosen, fixtures and even the textiles used.

 

Superscreen from East Coast Electrical Screening ads a whole new level of exterior interest. Old style screen may look ok when first installed but it is only a matter of time before you start to see snags, holes, rips, tears, and bowing so that when the wind blows you get rippling in the now not so tight in the frame screen.

 

Living in Florida, high winds and rain are a given. We are in hurricane central. Sticks, debris, high wind pressure all can damage normal metal screening. Once damaged, in come the insects. Mosquito season this year has been at its worst. Without good screening there is no spending time on your lanai or indoor/outdoor area.

 

It is because of these needs that SuperScreen was created. It is puncture resistant, mildew resistant, and even fire retardant which is great if you happen to grill out. The casing  is a slim 4.5” and can be mounted above or under any opening and if done during construction, completely recessed all together.

 

The housing is comprised of extruded aluminum which prevents damage during storms, even in hurricane strength winds, while the SuperScreen is rolled up inside of the casing and totally protected.

 

While your neighbors pool cage may be blowing down the road – your super screen will still be perfectly intact post storm.

 

East Coast Electricals’ Super Screen is perfect for more than pool caging and lanai use. We also regularly install garage doors, patios, decks, verandas, lanais, windows, French doors and even archways.

 

They can be motorized or manual so even if the power goes out you can still work your screening.

Super Screen vs. Regular Screen

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.

  1. Homeowners who were finding it necessary to replace their screens every 3-5 years no longer have to do so
  2. Tighter weave, keeping even the tiniest of bugs out
  3. The tensile strength and wind resistance is perfect for use here in Florida as windblown debris just bounces off rather than causing damage
  4. Pets who scratch at the door to go out no longer snag and tear the screen
  5. Mildew resistant so there is never a need to bleach
  6. UV fade resistant
  7. Fire retardant
