This is Florida, we have bugs. Which means we have screens. Screens keep out the bugs and spiders (and sometimes birds) and are especially important for keeping biting insects like mosquitoes out of your home. The problem is that because screens are also meant to let light through they are often quite delicate, and since they are on the outside of your home and subject to whatever the weather wants to throw at them a combination of aging screen materials and those little accidents that happen now and again mean that screens get ripped and torn and once there's even a small tear it's just a matter of time before that spreads and your screen looks tattered and ugly. Mosquitoes love that, we don't. Which is why we are on hand to come and repair all your window screens and porch screens so that they look just great and do their job.
New Screen Installation
If you don't have screens, or you think that the screens you have could maybe look a little sharper then you're absolutely right because we can fit the most beautiful modern screens to suit all kinds of homes or businesses. We can tailor our screens to fit to windows where there was no screen before or upgrade existing screens in a way that's sensitive to retaining the look and feel of a home but with sharp looking and performing new materials.
If you think screens are all plastic then think again. The commonest choice is between aluminum and fiber glass. Aluminum screens are actually a mix of aluminum and magnesium and come in at least three popular styles; bright aluminum, dark gray, or black. Typically fiber glass gives a brighter effect with more light passing through but aluminum is more durable. There is a third option that a lot of homes with pets go for and that's sun shading fabric which is darker than either aluminum or fiber glass but means you can turn down the air con a bit in summer and it's tougher and harder to tear – which is why some pet owners choose it at least for some parts of the house. We are happy to fit any material and you may want to have a mix of different screen materials depending on which side of the house the window is exposed.
Lightweight screens are all but invisible and usually chosen for areas where curb appeal is the most important factor. Pools, patios, and porches usually benefit more from a denser darker screen that protects more from the sun and, as we've mentioned above, some areas can use a really tough screen because your fur family has more enthusiasm than house sense sometimes.
The old style of wire mesh on wooden frame is rarely seen these days though we can recreate them if necessary. Instead screens installed on aluminum frames are cut larger than the frame and then held in place by a vinyl cord called a spline which is pressed into a groove in the frame. We use a spline roller to force that cord into place and hold it securely.
