  • They keep out unwanted guests

In the warmer months, it’s always nice to let a breeze through the house- but when opening some windows and doors, it can invite some bugs and insects into the home as well. With a retractable screen, you can easily let air into the home while keeping those unwanted bugs and insects out. They can also provide shade against the sun’s hot rays and offer additional privacy for your home’s interior. Therefore you can enjoy all the fresh air coming into your home, without worrying about harsh rays, and all those unwanted guests coming in with it.

  • They’re energy-efficient

Aside from keeping insects out, and providing shade against the sun, retractable screens also let air flow freely into your home. This means that doors and windows can be open more often, increasing ventilation and reducing the need for air conditioning and other energy-dependent cooling equipment. As a result, your energy bills will be lower and you will have a more energy-efficient home overall.

  • They’re High-quality and Long-lasting

Made with strong, sturdy, long-lasting materials, retractable screens are designed to last a long time. The top quality material they are made with are designed to withstand the test of time, so even after a few years, your retractable screens will still be as strong as ever. Not only will they stay strong and durable, they will also maintain a low profile as they easily slide into place or out of sight.

  • They’re affordable

Retractable screens are one of the most cost-effective options for your renovation or build and are the perfect home addition. Not only are they more affordable than other types of windows and doors, but they’ll last a lot longer due to the materials used to construct them and, they are very easy to maintain as the components and mechanisms can be accessed with no difficulty.
