The flyscreen has long been a ubiquitous feature of the Australian home. Originally it served purely as a means of allowing you to have your windows and doors open during hot weather so that the air could circulate while still keeping out flies mosquitoes and other insects. However the role and function of the humble flyscreen has evolved over the years and stronger more durable security screen doors and window grilles have now taken their place in the majority of Australian homes. One of the functions of a modern security screen door remains the same - to keep out insects when your main interior doors are open - but they now also serve the purpose of providing an additional layer of home security.
When it comes to styling a home screen doors are definitely important too. Not only that but it is also very easy to fix them on your own if the need comes up. It is great to open the doors on a nice hot day and just let the air flow through the house. It saves money and provides a nice level of comfort. There are a lot of options when you start shopping for screens. They are typically known for not looking all that great but there are so many options out there that there should be no excuse to decorate your entire home in style not just everything but the door. One of the options with screen doors is a retracting screen system.
Most often retractable models should match the measurements of the exterior jam its being installed in. Sliding patio models should be measured by the size of their panels. It is best to discuss the recommended measurements for your screen door installation needs with a licensed contractor. Proper Installation Traditional models are generally easy to install and can be set to open to the right or left. As for retractable and sliding glass models installation can be a bit trickier. It may involve masonry work drilling cutting track placement track adjustment heavy lifting and more. It is important to carefully follow the manufacturers instructions for installation or hire a handyman capable of doing the job right.
Make sure that the installer has many years experience and has been trained by the manufacturer. It is also important for the screen door company to have a valid contractors license depending on if your state requires it by law. A contractors license usually shows that the company is serious about staying in business for a number of years and it is protection for the consumer. Finally the service and warranty claims of the screen door company should also be taken into consideration. If there is a lifetime warranty on the parts excluding the screen material then who will service the screen door if a component breaks.
