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.
Make sure that the Velcro used to adhere the screen to the door frame is sewn in and has a very strong adhesive backing. If it doesnt have a strong adhesive backing the weight and daily use will eventually pull it off the door frame leaving it in a clump on the ground. 2. They are Hands-Free Accessible If you have a baby at home or someone in a wheelchair or are typically carrying something into or out of your house and are constantly struggling with the framed screen door handle then installing a fly screen should be on the top of your spring or summer chore list. Itll only take 10-15 minutes to install but itll save you a ton of aggravation.
For added protection make sure your home security door hinges are recessed this will minimize the gap between the door and the frame making the door more difficult to jimmy. The home security screen door should have stainless steel mesh and be attached to the door frame using either stainless steel screws or Pac clamps. The ideal home security mesh is either marine grade 316 mesh or 304-grade mesh. There are several mesh grades available on the market so check the strength rating to make sure it is at least equivalent to the 316 or 304 grade mesh. Users of the different grades of mesh will argue over which is stronger but apply the above check and you can not go wrong.
The truth is most if not all magnetic screen companies use sub-par materials to manufacture their products! If you want your screen to both look good and be durable it is important to find a company that has tested and designed their products for high-traffic doors. Compare the weight. Typically low quality mesh weigh 30g or less. Look for mesh that are 55g and above. Also make sure that they only use high-energy magnets which are sewn (not glued) into the mesh. Screens with magnets that are glued on that are in direct sunlight will eventually fail. The sun melts the glue and the magnets will eventually misalign or even fall off.
