Retractable Screen Door vs Traditional Screen Door

We are incredibly fortunate to live and enjoy the beautiful Southern Utah weather nearly every year. It’s a great place to spend time outside, but keep the doors closed to allow the cool breeze to enter. You can grill or enjoy a cup of coffee, a book, and a cup or two indoors or outdoors. A screen door allows for cool breezes inside and keeps bugs and debris out.


Traditional Screen Door/Storm Door

Sometimes, curb appeal is all that matters! Some people don’t like storm doors or feel they do not match the style of their home. Storm doors won’t completely block the front door. People who do not wish to alter the appearance of their front doors, especially if they are custom-made, may choose not to have storm doors installed.

Storm doors consist of an aluminum mounting frame that is either aluminum or screen-coated. Storm doors can either be mounted to the outside of or in front of a door exterior. They are often found on front entrance doors but can be attached to other exterior doors depending on the purpose.

Retractable Screen Doors are more affordable than Storm Doors but can be as expensive or less depending on the style. Storm doors require that they be ordered. Installation can often take 2 to 3 weeks. A ventilating or screen door allows you to let in fresh air while protecting your home from bugs and other outdoor debris. You will need to open the full view door to qualify in the breeze.

A retractable screening door is a flexible screen that rolls up and retracts into a housing attached to the outside of your door jamb. Retractable windows screens operate in the same manner, except that they reject vertically. These innovative screen designs will meet all your outdoor screen needs.


How a retractable screen door works

When they’re not being used, the retractable doors roll up into housing and hang vertically on the jamb. A retractable screen door attaches to a fitting at the opposite end of a single-door setup. If you have double-wide doors, the retractable screen door seals magnetically in place at the center of your doorway to attach to a second unit on the opposite side. For most retractable screens, you will need to attach a track along both the top or bottom of the door jamb in order to keep it in position when extended.


Why Choose Retractable Windows Screens over Traditional Styles

Retractable screen doors and retractable windows screens can serve two primary purposes. The first reason is that some screen doors or screens can be challenging to fit into the available space. French doors, arched and sliding doors are all options that can be difficult when trying to find a screen door that is attractive, functional, and effective.

A retractable screen door can fit any door style, from the traditional to the most unusual. This makes it the ideal solution for doorways that don’t allow conventional hanging screen doors. A retractable window screen is better than regular ones for the views.

Standard screens will be in your way all year. They can block sunlight, obscure your view and collect dust. A retractable window screen or retractable screen door can solve this problem. These retractable window screens and doors disappear when completely retracted. Your view out of your window or door will be clear as daylight.
