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.

Spring Clean Your Window Screens

It’s that time of year again! Now that warmer weather is here, we are all on the spring cleaning war path! It is a great time to focus on your window and door screens. Let’s get them all scrubbed up and clean for the upcoming summer season.

  1. You will want to remove the screen from the frame. Carefully lie the screen down on a large blanket or towel that you don’t mind getting dirty.
  1. Using the extension attachments, run a vacuum over the screen to rid it of dust and loose dirt.
  1. Fill a bucket with a quarter of a cup of all-purpose soap and about a half-gallon of warm water.
  1. Standing the screen up, you may need someone to help you with this, wash both sides with the soap mixture.
  1. Spray the screen off with a hose. Make sure that it is on a low pressure setting. High power settings might make tear the screen away from the spline and create a saggy, loose screen that needs repaired.
  1. Dry your screens with a clean, dry towel and then set them out to air dry.
  1. Once the screens are dry, you can replace them into the frame.
  1. As you are cleaning each screen, inspect each one for tears, holes and check to see if it has come loose from the frame. Insects, pollen and debris can enter your home through these unsightly tears.

Maintaining the integrity of the screen is important to its lifespan. By occasionally taking a vacuum attachment and getting the dirt and gunk off, then your next spring cleaning will be simple.

*Note: while your screens are off of the windows, that is a great time to wash the outside of the windows as well!

 East Coast Electric Screening is the expert and go-to for screen replacement. Their SuperScreens are amazing and have a long lifespan. They are tear resistant, mildew resistant, fire retardant, and puncture resistant. All of which bode well here in Florida.

Increase the Livability of Your Home with Motorized Electric Screens

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.

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.

At East Coast Electric Screening, LLC, we cover a lot of ground in South Florida. We serve Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties. Give us a call today at (561)-746-2622.

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.
