Why Retractable Screens Are Better Than Traditional Screens

Since the invention of the first window screens in 1861 during the Civil War, screens have proven to be a valuable addition to the everyday home. However, science and technology have advanced an incredible amount since then, and what was once an installment of necessity is now an installment of leisure as well. Retractable screens have taken that leisure to the next level, but why are retractable screens better than traditional screens?

Sun and Pest Control on Your Time

The best aspect of retractable screens is that they’re retractable. This feature means you can have them down during the warmer months to protect you and your loved ones from insects and the sun’s harsh rays. You can also enjoy the cooler weather whenever you want by retracting them. In addition, you can choose a light and breezy insect mesh, a privacy screen, or a dense mesh solar screen to suit your home’s needs.

Increased Durability

Because traditional screens don’t always use the most durable material, they’re prone to weather damage. Here at Phantom Screens of Central Indiana, our retractable door screens utilize aluminum, a material that is highly resistant to weathering and corrosion. In addition, aluminum is the most durable and affordable material on the market. Whether you live in the wind, rain, snow, or heat, you can be sure that your screens are up for the challenge.

Aesthetically Appealing

Retractable screens come in a variety of finishes and colors, which means they can fit seamlessly into your home’s décor and style. No matter what your home’s aesthetic is, you can be sure that your retractable screens will suit your aesthetic. In addition, if you’re looking to sell, retractable screens are an excellent installation to increase the resale value of your home, as they’re an enviable and modern installation.
