Screen doors are the perfect fix to bring in the cool summer breeze without letting all of the night critters inside your home. Before buying a new screen door, it’s important to know which type best suites your needs.
Screen doors are designed to keep pests out while filling the home with fresh air and brilliant light. At the same time, these doors can form another layer of insulation as well as provide security for your home.
Here are some tips to help you find the perfect screen door for your home.
Screen Door Types
There are several popular screen doors to consider when choosing what is best for your home. A sliding screen door offers light, air, and an unobstructive view of your yard. If your home has French doors leading out to a patio, double screen doors can be installed with the same benefits of a regular screen door. These, and other types of screen doors, can be provided as a retractable screen door, offering visibility control.
Did you know there are various types of screen material? This allows the screen to be customized for the proper use. Choose a retractable screen door that is made of Phifer fiberglass, like the ones offered at Dreamscreens Canada. These screens have a protective vinyl to ensure lasting beauty, colour, and flexibility. They are also designed to reduce rust or corrosion and finished with a durable PVC coating.
Most standard screen doors are available in width sizes of 36” and 38” while common height measurements are 80” or 81”. Screen doors can be customized to fit any openings, but keep in mind the height is the most important measurement.
The great feature of most standard screen doors is the versatility of being able to be hung on the left side or the right side of the doorway. At Dreamscreens Canada, our screens are designed to be both installed professionally or as a DIY project.
Long gone are the days of flimsy, easy-to-tear mesh screen doors. Today’s market offers durable materials for the door to act as an insulator as well as a secure entrance. While the screens may not keep out unwanted persons, they can keep our pesty bugs and critters.
As with any aspect of your home, it’s best to invest in not only what you want but in something that will last a long time. When deciding on your budget, take into consideration the type of screen you are looking for and all of the benefits that come with retractable screen doors. With a customized screen door, most manufacturers or local producers will be able to work within your budget.
