How Did Your Homes Screening Fare This Past Hurricane Season?

If you are like the majority of the homeowners in Florida the answer is that during Irma or one of the other storms we weathered your screens were ripped, torn, shredded or when you came out when the calm finally arrived, maybe your screens were altogether gone.

Traditional metal mesh screening cannot stand up to the weather, especially hurricane-force winds that whip branches and other debris into them. The metal mesh bends and eventually rips giving way.

Before the next hurricane season hits it’s a great idea to get your home prepared the right way.

The initial investment can potentially save you time, aggravation and money down the road should another storm hit.. and let’s face it, this is Florida. At some point or another, we will experience tropical storm force winds if not a full-blown hurricane.

Being prepared is key. The answer comes in the form of electric screens. These are screens that can be easily retracted during storms. These 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 puncture resistant, mildew resistant, and fire retardant. SuperScreen out lives typical fiberglass screening, and come with a ten-year warranty.

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.

A Hurricane! Are Your Screens Ready?

This time of year most homeowners focus on Hurricane season and how to protect their property and its contents or added amenities. Windows and doors are the primary focus, however one of the most expensive and time consuming replacement items is your pool cage that you have around and over your pool.

While there is no real way to stop a hurricane from damaging the structure, you can minimize damage by cutting the screen panels and then bearing the cost to replace it after the storm. With no guarantees that the frame will not topple from the winds. With a few new insurance rules since the last wave of hurricanes, enclosures are not a covered item on a standard home owner insurance policy, so make sure you are covered.

Some of us do not have a pool cage at all and we find the summer months to be unbearable to be on our patios in the early evening and beyond.  But that doesn’t mean that you need a pool cage either.

There is a rapidly growing product line commonly referred to as a motorized roll down screen. This is a system that allows you to have a screened in area when you want it and you simply roll it up when it is not desired.  The system has become more affordable over the last few years. The added benefit is that when that Hurricane comes through you simply roll it up into a structural canister and wait for the storm to pass. When your neighbors suffer loss of their cages due to high winds. Then have to wait for a company (Who will be extremely busy) to come out to either repair or replace their structure, you will be able to enjoy you outdoor space immediately. Not expenses or time delay!

So, whether you want to install a screen on an existing unscreened home or need one to replace yours when that cage is damaged look into this alternative. It is another added feature to your outdoor life.

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.
