We have all seen traditional screen doors. They are perfect when you want to let a cool summer breeze flow through your home, but they can be a pain in the bottom when you are trying to carry in groceries and have to open up two doors. Their handles are difficult to use when you have a handful of items or a sleeping child and there are certain times of the year when they simply are not practical. For that reason, many people have decided to keep a clear view with retractable screen doors.
A retractable screen door works the same way as retractable interior doors, awnings, and other things that you simply push out of the way when they are not in use. Considering the purpose of a screen door is to allow you to see outside without a door in the way and to allow breezes to come in without insects, you can have both, but avoid having a door to deal with when it is not needed. When the weather is cold and you don’t need a cool breeze inside of your home, you simply push it out of the way.
Retractable doors are not much more expensive than a traditional screen door, but they offer a lot of convenience. The only issue that you may have with it is finding a professional who knows how to install them if you are unable to do it yourself. Due to the fact that they are retractable, you will need a pocket for it to slide into unless you are going to install it on a sliding glass door. On the sliding door, there is already a pocket that you can push it into. It simply changes the side where the screen door is located. On a front or back door that is traditional in size, you will need to create a pocket for it so that it has some place to go when not in use.
A retractable screen door is something that most people have never considered owning before. However, this does not make it any less valuable an idea. Most people are happy to put the screen door aside when they cannot use it for its intended use. Do you think it would be a good addition to your home?
