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.

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, year round.

Keeping your home safer with motorized screening

safer

In an ideal society, you could simply leave your windows open all night and your doors unlocked. These days that just isn’t the state of the world.  Crime is a fact of life here in Florida no matter how nice of a neighborhood you live in. Feeling safe in your own home is a must. So long as proper precautions are taken, you can limit your vulnerability. Locking the doors at night and when you go out, installing alarm systems should an attempted break-in in occur, and getting to know your neighbors – even forming a neighborhood watch group can help add to the feeling of security for all.

Adding motorized SuperScreen to your home can allow you to keep the airflow without sacrificing security. Superscreen is tear resistant and would be very cumbersome for a burglar or home invader to cut through to gain entry. It is opened by installed indoor push button or remote control and can not be opened from the outside.

Normally leaving your drapes open and windows up would allow outsiders to see in your home, especially at night when the lights are on and it is dark out.  SuperScreening, though perfectly visible from the inside out, can be tinted making it tough to peep at the residents inside. This makes your home less of a potential target for would-be criminals.

 

Electric window screens offer privacy and are a great way to keep bugs and burglars out while still letting the breeze flow in.

Never bother with regular old screen again!

superscreen

It’s Florida. Those that move here do it partly for the beautiful sunny weather, same for those who choose to stay. Being able to enjoy nature is part of the beauty of being a homeowner here. That means appreciation for the indoor-outdoor areas in your space. Lanais, patios, sunrooms and more.

In order to fully enjoy these places, they need to be screened.

Whether you already have a home or are in the designing and building process it is always the right time to consider adding motorized electric screens made of high-tech super screen material.

Old traditional metal mesh screens can tear, snag, rip, bend and need to be repaired and replaced fairly regularly. This is especially true if you have pets. Paws and claws can ruin a traditional screen in no time flat. SuperScreen, being snag resistant is also pet resistant. Over time they may rust, mold, mildew, even become lose or have bubbles in them, they begin to look worn aging the impression of the home itself.

Choosing to work with East Coast Electrical Screening allows screens to be installed that will not only stand the test of time with a limited ten-year warranty on these puncture resistant, fire retardant, mildew resistant screens that are custom fit and even recessed as they retract right into a slim housing of extruded aluminum. This unique housing allows screens to remain undamaged even in the strongest winds, which in Florida during tropical depressions or hurricanes can save you a small fortune in replacement costs or insurance claims.

Superscreens can be fitted to garage doors, French doors, windows, patios, lanais, Roman archways, even doggie doors!

Hurricanes and Flooding – How Will Your Screening Fare

hurricane

Watching the devastation occurring with Hurricane Harvey, and even some of the recent flooding here in Florida it brings your attention to the build of your house. During hurricane force winds one of the very first things to go is the screening and pool cages.

Homeowners need to focus on not only insuring but protecting their property the best they can.  Post hurricane trying to replace your screen or caging is a game of get in line with the rest of them. It can take months.

Being proactive and replacing your old worn out traditional screening with retractable, durable superscreen is the best answer. They are puncture and wind resistant.

Motorized roll down screening retracts back into its case. This is a system that allows you to have a screened in lanai or patio when you want it and you simply roll it up when it is not in use.

Screening adds wind resistance and pressure on your frame. When retracted that pressure is gone and your screen safe. The wind is far less likely to damage just the frame when it isn’t being pulled on by the pressure of the wind in the screen like a sail.

We currently have more tropical storms out in the ocean. The projected pathways show the possibility of more strong Florida bound storms.  Now is the time to find out if a motorized roll up screen is a good fit for you and the cost associated with the system contact us at East Coast Electric screening. 561-746-2622 or look at our website at www.eastcoastelectricalscreening.com. 

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.

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.

Are Motorized Screens the Best Choice?

It’s the digital age, which means boring old windows are getting an update. Move over curtains and draperies, motorized screens that run on tracks, are the hottest items out there.

And there are so many reasons why

Namely, convenience. Some people think that, architecturally, a lot of windows on a home’s exterior walls looks real nice. But what happens when you want to clean them? Talk about a hassle, right? With motorized window screens, you don’t have to physically touch the window at all. With the press of a button, you can move the screen up or down. It really is that simple. You won’t have to spend hours cleaning your windows again.

Save on energy. Hot air can throw your air conditioner into a tailspin. That’s because hot temperatures makes the unit work twice as hard—but not with motorized window screens. By covering them up, your AC actually runs less. A sensor can be installed, too, that tells the shades to close when the sun is at its brightest peak, keeping your home cool and saving you money.

 Appearance. They also just look better than clunky old windows. By motorizing them, windows move together in one fluid movement to the intended spot.

Fluidity. Motorized window screens can also flawlessly fit any size opening, from doors and window to entire wall openings—anything can be custom fitted to meet your needs.
