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!

Traditional Screen vs. Retractable Super Screen

Whether you are building a new home or modifying an existing structure, the right screen can make a world of difference in your indoor-outdoor experience as well as the overall lasting durability and lifespan of your open airflow environments.

Traditional screens have a multitude of drawbacks. They rip and tear easily forcing you to either patch, which can be unsightly or replace the entire screen which is costly and time-consuming. The metal mesh fabric is stiff and hard to clean and dirt and grime accumulate in the corners of each frame. Over time they look aged, tattered and detract from the overall look and feel of the home itself.

Traditional Screening Rips Easily

Super Screen™ is aptly named. Super Screen™ is incredibly durable. In a 7 year test of exposure to the elements here in Florida, it lost only 1% strength with no tears or rips needing to be repaired. It is pet resistant, mold resistant, bug proof, and even fade proof.

The choice in screening is clear. Super Screen™ wins hands down every time. Your home is one of your biggest investments. Protect your investment by installing Super Screen on patios, lanais, windows and sliding doors.

Extruded vs Roll Aluminum Housing

You’ve invested in your home to make it a beautiful, warm and welcoming retreat from the world. The retractable screens that you want to add should complement your home’s aesthetic appeal. Not only should you look at the visual aspect of the screens, but also make sure that the components are made of quality materials.

Here at East Coast Electric Screening, we only use extruded aluminum housings for our screens. This term might not mean much to you, but once a big storm comes through, you’ll be glad that you chose this superior product over other flimsy housings.

Extruded aluminum is the term used for the manufacturing of this type of housing. It is made of a thicker aluminum, whereas the rolled aluminum is about the strength of a soda can. Which one would you want to have in the midst of a hurricane? We’d venture to say extruded.

Not only do we use SuperScreen, a strong puncture and mildew resistant screen, our retractable screens roll up into an extruded aluminum housing. This strong housing can be custom recessed during new home builds or mounted above or below the door or window opening in existing homes. This discreet and slim mounting will keep the screen securely tucked away when it is not in use.

Extruded aluminum wears better than rolled aluminum due to the manufacturing process. It is heavier, has mitered corners and won’t bend as easy as rolled aluminum, which a lot lighter. You also won’t have to worry about the color fading from sunlight and other environmental exposures like you would if you have rolled aluminum framing and housing.

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

Increase the Livability of Your Home with Motorized Electric Screens

superscreen

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.

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.
