They are provided with a speed reducer so that the screen will not snap back. Some of the doors have large openings and have a more elegant appearance. These screen doors help to cool the inside of the house during summer. The door that is retractable looks more impressive than the regular swinging door. The main advantage of this type of door is that the door is hidden when not in use. The door can slide easily and the magnetic lock ensures proper closure of the door. The doors are with warranty up to 3 years and usually the frames are made of aluminum. These screens are very convenient to use. Those who want to purchase these screens can opt for online purchase. There are many websites that offer these screens to sell.
The best are the full-length metal handles. This is a metal handle that runs the entire length of the door no matter how tall the door is. Because some people are shorter than others the full-length handle will allow the user to grab the handle at any height that is comfortable for them. Plus with metal handles you are guaranteed they will not fade chip crack or break. Although there are some companies with good high-grade plastic handles metal handles tend to be the safe choice!

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.
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.
