Our Lifestyle® Garage Screens

Hey all! I just wanted to take a few minutes of your time to introduce you to one of our premier products: Lifestyle® Garage Screens.

We introduced this product to our line-up a couple years ago. We used to install the traditional sliding screen panels, but changed for this 2010 Product of the Year. You may be asking yourself, what is so great about this product. Well, there are a few advantages to this screen. First, there are no visible tracks to install on the outside of your garage door. Yep, that is correct, nothing to drive over or bend. This feature alone is why so many HOA's approve us to install this item. It can be hidden when not in use.

Another feature is the center retractable door. You may go in and out at will without the worry of insects coming in, or having to raise up your motorized screen to get outside. Also, with the optional white privacy screen, no one will see what is going on inside. If you look at the picture on this post, can you see our customer doing back flips? Yeah, I didn't think so.

The tracks are installed inside your garage and are made of the same material that your garage tracks are made of. Tensions springs assist in pulling the screen up and down. One advantage over motorized screens is that during a power outage, the screen came still be put up and down.

Not only is this product heads and shoulders above the sliding garage screens, it is also back by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Plus, yeah it gets better, this is 100% Made In America!!! Available in White, Brownstone, and Sandstone. So, what are you waiting for? Call us today for a free in home estimate and demonstration.

It's the dog days of summer....

Well, it is that time of year. It has been very hot with temperatures reaching the century mark. Please make sure that you are taking precautions to keep from getting heat exhaustion. Whether you are like me, screening and installing morning to night, or just playing in the yard, it would be to your best interest to pay attention and not get dehydrated.

This time of year stores have 24 packs of water on sale, make sure that you are stocking up and have plenty on hand to keep from sweating out all your fluids. The other day, we were working on a pool cage, and it was so hot that we didn't even need to go to the bathroom. This is not a good practice, nor is it something you should do everyday. My advice is to keep a gallon of water on hand and make sure you drink it all. It doesn't necessarily have to be ice cold, but it can't be hot either. 

I just purchased an Arctic Cove Multi-Wrap from Home Depot the other day. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it looks like it will do exactly what I need it to do. Along with the heat and humidity, the sun leaves its mark on my neck. This provides a cover to block my neck from the sun. All the claims show that it will reduce heat by 30%. I can't wait to put it to the test and give you the results in a later blog. So for now, keep hydrated and reduce your time in the sun. Make sure to plan your work around the shade that is available. Talk to you soon.

Pool and Patio Enclosure Screen

Hey all,

Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful Florida evening. Since the summer is upon us, I am sure you are getting outside more. Maybe out to our great beaches, or maybe at your pool. Have you noticed the holes in the screens? Or, are your screens having a white haze to them? This is a sign that they need to be replaced. 

As we Floridians know, when the day starts to end, mosquitoes and other flying insects look to use us to bite on. Why not shore up your pool or patio enclosure and leave the bug spray in the cabinet? There are so many choices of screens that you can replace your old screen with. Of course, you have the standard pool screen, but you can fight the no-see-ums with our 20 x 20 screen. 

Also, do not forget our afternoon thunderstorms will be firing up soon. The wind gusts are sure to blow out one or two brittle screens. Typical screen life is about 7 years, but can be more or less depending on where you live. It is always a good idea to be prepared before the wind blows out a screen and lets in all those flying insects. This can definitely ruin a cookout.

Take a moment to inspect your screens. If you find spline hanging out of the groove, or holes in the screen, take a moment to call someone out to look at them. We would be more than happy to be that company. I like to say that we are an a la carte company. If you only want one or two panels replaced, we will be more than happy to do that. We can also rescreen the whole thing. We use Phifer® screen and Twitchell Super Screen®.  So, just give us a call, and we will be happy to show you what separates us from the competition. Have a great evening!
