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.

The New Standard for Outdoor Screens

superscreen

Superscreen is the screen of the future, only the beauty is that it’s here now. Standard metal mesh screening is limited. Once bent it weakens the fibers. Over time that causes rips and tears. These small openings can let in bugs and debris, and over time rip even more.

Superscreen is tear resistant, puncture resistant, mildew resistant, and even fire retardant which is key if you bbq on your lanai. SuperScreen outlasts traditional fiberglass screen material and is backed by a Ten Year Limited Warranty. Superscreen is also retractable. By making the decision to install, you aren’t limiting yourself to being enclosed all of the time.

Retractable screening rolls up discreetly inside of a thin non-conspicuously mounted housing. Motorization is also installable making retraction a breeze. Living in Florida, hurricane preparedness is a way of life. If you are a homeowner, making sure that your property is easily secured is important. Having retractable superscreens can save you from having to replace or repair your screening post hurricane.

These screens can install not only on porches and lanais but any window, archway, enclosure, breezeway or even garage. They are versatile and come in a wide range of colors.

The increased airflow can cut your electric bill by allowing the breeze to cool your home in the fall and winter months as well as increasing the quality of breathable air in your home.

Whether you are building a new home or retrofitting an existing one, when it comes to screening, SuperScreen is the way to go. We would love to give you a quote and show you how to maximize your homes true potential. Give us a call 888-41SCREEN or visit www.eastcoastelectricscreening.com

mosquito

Florida is home to 12,000+ species of insects. Many of which do bite humans and pets if given the opportunity. Bug transmitted illness has been a hot topic in the news in recent years with the spread of Zika and the West Nile Virus by way of mosquito.

Let’s take a look at the top ranked “most likely to bite” category.

Coming in at #1: Mosquitos – Florida has been invaded by the Aedes aegypti (yellow fever mosquito) and the Asian Tiger Mosquito. They both and can carry a huge array of diseases.

#2. No-See-Ums:  These mini biting midges are a huge nuisance. they are hard to see and leave itchy red welts.

#3. Yellow Flies, Stable Flies, and Horse Flies – Mostly found in beach areas their bites sting like you have been pricked with a sewing needle.

#4 Fire Ants: Fire ants deliver a painful sting that often leaves a swollen pustule on the bite area.

#5 Ticks: The American Dog Tick is common in Florida. Though they do not carry Lyme’s disease as deer ticks do, they can carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Turlaremia. The Gulf Coast Tick also inhabits our land. It can transmit several pathogens to animal and human.

#7 Brown Recluse Spider: These think leggy spiders are toxic and their venom can rot chunks out of human flesh. If you are bitten please seek medical attention.

#8 Black Widow Spider: These spiders are also venomous and should be considered dangerous.

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.

Open your home and reduce allergies

Allergies

While it’s true that airborne allergies can stem from outdoor particles such as pollen or grass, one of the biggest offenders is bad indoor air quality. This can easily result from unkempt air ducts, non-replaced filters on air conditioner units, pet dander, smoking and even mold or mildew inside of the home in high humidity areas.

 

Using air purifiers, washing bedding and blankets frequently, turning on exhaust fans in the kitchen and bath, regularly bathing pets, and even stationing open boxes of baking soda inconspicuously in your home can help keep contaminants at a minimum.

 

One of the very best ways to help keep air fresh is to create an open environment in which air can flow. Having motorized power screens made of Superscreen material installed on your home allow you to leave doors and windows open that normally would not be a source of cross breeze.

 

Unlike conventional window screens, East Coast Electrical Screening’s screens are retractable, either electronically or manually. All screens are custom fit to your home. Superscreen is mildew resistant and made of an incredibly strong and tightly woven material which helps to keep particulate from blowing into your home’s indoor air environment.

Super Screen: Why We Love Them

Super Screen™ is a brand of screening here at East Coast Electric Screening, we just LOVE! We have been in the screening business for many, many years and have yet to come across a type of screening that is better than this product. We encourage our customers to consider Super Screen™ screening for the following reasons:

  • Super Screen™ is very durable. Older screening was made of fiberglass. That type would lose its elasticity over time. Over the course of a 7-year test, Super Screen only lost 1% of its strength. The test exposed it to sunlight and weather conditions.
  • Pet owners should invest in this type of screening. Pets can wreak havoc on screens when they see another dog walking by or want to get out to chase a squirrel, etc. Super Screen™ makes claw marks from pets barely even visible. This reduces the number of times that you will need to replace your screens due to scratches.
  • Believe it or not, these screens are tear-proof and puncture-proof. The strands are extra strong, yet still very lightweight. The company that makes Super Screen™ has a special technology that makes their screens very strong.
  • In Florida, mold and mildew abound due to the humidity levels. These organisms readily attach to screening around lanais and pool cages. The fabric used in Super Screen resists mildew, which is sought after by homeowners.
  • The sun here in Florida can be extreme. Super Screen™ is fade resistant. They are manufactured with a UV protectant, which keeps your screens looking new year after year.
  • The small hold sizes available help keep out even the tiniest of bugs. You can enjoy your lanai or pool area without the need for bug repellant. The sizes offered can be so small that it can even block up to 50% of the sun’s rays.

This amazing screening even comes with a 10-year limited warranty. That is unheard of in the screening industry. Trust us, we know!

What are Motorized Electric Screens?

Motorized electric screens are exactly what they sound like. They are screens that are installed on your home that open up electronically. There is no need to manually pull them down or try to push them up into their housing. With the touch of a button, you are able to either open or shut the screening.

Why use motorized electric screens? Here in Florida, there are many nights, especially in the winter, that you can sit on your back porch and enjoy the cool breezes. By having a screen in place, you can enjoy it without bugs pestering you. When you have the screening down, it will keep debris from trees and bushes from blowing into your sitting area. Motorized screens are great for those who have pets as well. It is a way to contain them during those times that you do not want them running free in the back yard. If you like to host gatherings, the screening easily can be drawn down so that any food buffet is not touched by pests.

Are motorized electric screens bulky and an eye sore? No, absolutely not. This type of screening conveniently rolls up into a discreet housing unit that is custom fitted to blend into your home as much as possible. There are even different colors for the housing unit that can blend to your home’s exterior color.

I like the technology of the Super Screen. Can that be used in a motorized electric screening application? Yes, definitely. The Super Screen is a very popular type of screen that has an amazing warranty due to its resistance to tearing and puncturing. This is a perfect screen for those who own animals or are concerned about the high winds during Florida’s many storms.

  • 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.

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.
