You may have heard about retractable screen doors before — whether you’ve heard about retractable screens for porches, screens for french doors, or customizable screens for garages. But what exactly are the benefits of using these retractable doors? You might actually be surprised!
- The flexibility of being able to find a variety of retractable screen doors for any style and size door is one major benefit of these screens. Entry doors, french doors, patio doors, sliding glass doors, in-swing and out-swing doors are all examples of doorways that can be fitted with a retractable screen.
- Keeping your house cool is probably another main benefit that you’ve already heard about — because let’s be honest, these days, everyone’s looking for a new way to save a few dollars on their energy bills. A retractable screen door will allow air to flow through your house when it’s cool outside, and when it’s very hot outside you can remove the screen easily in lieu of a permanent door. Keeping the sun’s hot rays out of the house is actually one of the most effective ways to lower your cooling costs.
- Another smaller benefit, on a related note, is that these doors keep insects out too! They’re perfect for any family with a dog that likes to go in and out of the house constantly, because instead of leaving your door open and letting in all the flies, you just have to move the screen to let Fluffy out (and in, and out again, and in again…).
- Finally, retractable screen doors are incredibly useful because they allow you to enjoy your home and your yard without sacrificing the aesthetic quality of your home! They’re easy to move (and remove, too) and you never have to sacrifice aesthetic quality for convenience.
