Enhancing Your Home’s Curb Appeal with Retractable Screen Doors

July 13, 2023

When you drive up to your home after a long day, are you happy to see it, or are you cringing inside a little? Is the house an appealing colour? Is the yard immaculate or overgrown? Is a ratty old screen door distracting from the welcoming front entrance? All these things can add up to a home’s curb appeal, including how inviting it may be to its homeowners. 

Curb appeal isn’t just for a potential buyer; it’s also for the current owner. Coming home to a house you’re not excited to see before entering its doors. Old dirty window and door screens can make the exterior of a place far less appealing, which doesn’t feel good when it’s your own home. Fortunately, there is a solution.


Clean and appealing

Retractable screens for your doors are far more appealing than your basic screens. When they’re not in use, retractable screens are, as the name says—retracted—and will not interrupt the clean lines of your home. The front door is meant to be welcoming and inviting to you and others. With the retractable screen doors, there’s no more hiding your lovely front door behind a permanent screen door.

The screen itself creates clean lines when you need to get some airflow going through your home. You can keep the door open without letting anything other than the breeze inside. The comfort of knowing that only the air can come through opposed to unwelcomed critters is important. 

The retractable screens keep certain things inside, like your pets or small children. With the latch and release handle, you won’t have to worry about your babies escaping the safety of the inside, and it will allow them to feel the breeze still and watch the world go by before you’re ready to bring them outside.


Natural with nature

If you’ve got a covered patio or porch that you’d like to enjoy more often but find the mosquitos unbearable, we have a solution for that as well. We can fit retractable screens in practically any opening, which means you’ll be able to expand your living space beyond the four walls of your home. 

Outdoor space is becoming as important as indoor space to many homeowners as people embrace nature and want to include it in their lives. Keeping the natural look to the outdoor space and your home may not seem doable, but with retractable door screens, you won’t have to worry about distracting from the look of your home. You can enjoy the great outdoors while still maintaining and elevating the look and feel of your property from the curb. 

Our retractable screens keep bugs away and other irritants. Anyone with allergies knows that when you see fluff floating in the air, it’s time to get back inside unless you want to be sneezing and congested for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, with custom-made retractable screens, your front porch will look great and feel great without pollen getting into your space or nose. This allows you to enjoy the outdoors without taking an antihistamine first.

Should you desire to host the screens, provide a place of solitude for your guests while enhancing the welcoming aspect of the exterior of your home. Screens don’t have to devalue your home; we want to ensure they will add value, whether from the curb or within the walls of your home.
