“Why do you call it a disappearing screen?”

What exactly is a “disappearing screen”? Well, that’s simple: because the products that we offer can retract and “vanish” as needed. Our screen products will roll into their sturdy aluminum frames to be available when you need them. These frames are designed to fit beautifully into the style of your home, so they’re the perfect addition for maximizing square footage and comfortable breezes.

 

“Retractable screen vs. screen door: what’s the difference?”

Unlike a standard screen door, which has to be opened and closed with each use, a retractable screen can be utilized as needed. If it’s a crisp fall day with an amazing cool breeze, and you want the doors open, just keep the screen door in place so you can enjoy the weather without inviting pests into the space. When you’re ready to close the exterior door, you can also roll up the screen into its housing. This helps both by getting it out of the way when not needed and also avoiding the wear and tear that can damage the door between seasons.

 

“What about storm doors?”

With the improvements in mesh technology, the retractable screen doors available today offer numerous benefits over traditional storm doors. What is more, the more intense materials that go into storm doors can work against the desired circulation during the rest of the year. Because of this, retractable screens, with their strong aluminum housing and durable mesh, offer a great alternative for homeowners who want to enjoy the most from the good weather without creating a heat build-up during the warmest months.

 

“But I have a sliding patio door…”

And we have a product for you! The retractable screens from Michele’s Hideaway Screens are custom-build to fit your home and will provide better visibility, and require less impact of storage housing, while you are enjoying your outdoor space.

 

“How does this impact the value of my home?”

The best part of the retractable screens from Michele’s Hideaway Screens is that they add usable outdoor square footage to your home. What is more, the retractable screens allow you to maximize the best weather during the Florida year, opening doors to bring in the comfortable breezes without also encouraging bugs and other pests to make their way inside.

In fact, one of the reasons you might see so many screened garages, porches, and lanais in Florida is that Floridians don’t have the option to add basements. So we’ve found an alternative, in the form of utilizing outdoor space and getting the most out of it with the different types of screens that are available. Our retractable and motorized screens give homeowners an incredible variety of options for enjoying the outdoors during as many months of the year as possible. A lanai in the back of the house can quickly become an oasis for screened-in relaxation; a garage can rapidly double as a workout space or a tool shop with a motorized screen. The screen options from Michele’s Hideaway Screens can give you more space than you knew you had in your home!

What is a retractable door screen?

Unlike a standard screen door, which has to be opened and closed with each use, a retractable screen can be utilized as needed. If it’s a crisp fall day with an amazing cool breeze, and you want the doors open, just keep the screen door in place so you can enjoy the weather without inviting pests into the space. When you’re ready to close the exterior door, you can roll up the screen into its housing to keep it protected from the elements. This helps to not only get the screen out of the way when not needed, but also avoids unnecessary wear and tear to the retractable screen.

 

How do I maintain my screen?

Each of our products will come with slightly different needs, but in general we recommend that customers keep the tracks clean and free of debris and only apply silicone-based lubricants. Additionally, each customer will be provided a specific care instruction sheet so you’ll be able to keep your screen in great shape for years to come. Just like anything exposed to the elements, it is a good idea to wipe down your screen with a soft brush or rag using a mixture of water, dish soap and household bleach (if needed). Specific instructions will be provided at time of installation.

 

How much does it cost for a garage screen?

Our products are measured to fit your home, and our team members will provide the measurements directly to the manufacturer to build a custom screen that is made for you. As a result, the prices will vary from product to product. Adding our retractable screens to your garage and lanai can help provide much needed protection from the Florida sun which in turn can reduce heat build-up and lower your cooling cost!
