For many homeowners, window screens are a necessary nuisance, hauled out of the garage or attic in the spring and returned to storage in the fall. Learn the benefits of retractable window screens, and save yourself the hassle of the biannual switcheroo.
Retractable screens pull out to cover window openings in the spring and summer when you want to let fresh air in without admitting a phalanx of insects into your home. When you don’t need these screens, they roll up out of sight into a casing attached to the window frame, providing unobstructed views of your yard and beyond.
Because retractable screens are only in use when you need them, you don’t expose them to as much dirt, dust, and debris as screens that cover your windows all the time. Retractable screens stay protected within their housings when not in use. Furthermore, they’re easy to clean with a gentle brush or cloth and mild dish soap. There’s no need for messy hoses or potentially damaging power washers.
Modern retractable screens come in several mesh options that address your most pressing concerns. While all screens will exclude most insects and provide some sun protection, retractable screens come in solar and UV protection options that reduce solar heat entering your home and protect rugs and furniture from the fading effects of UV light.
If privacy is your prime concern, retractable privacy screens ward off prying eyes while allowing you to enjoy fresh breezes.
