Durability

Due to the nature of retractable screen doors and windows, they are only intermittently exposed to the elements in comparison to fixed outdoor screens and doors which are constantly exposed. Outdoor screens such as fixed sliding doors are far more susceptible to wind, UV rays and rain as they spend more time in the elements which can shorten the lifespan of these outdoor windows and doors. The brilliant part of retractable screen doors and windows is that they can be retracted away when they’re not in use which means they are completely protected from harsh elements when they’re not needed. Automatically this will lengthen the lifespan of your retractable windows and doors. For a longer lasting, smarter home investment, retractable screen doors and windows are the ultimate choice in outdoor screens.

Maintenance

Due to the nature of retractable outdoor screens, such screens do not spend much time exposed to the harshest elements as people tend to reside inside and retract their screens back during the typical wilder weather months. This means the amount of maintenance required for your Phantom Screens outdoor screens is very minimal. It is recommended that you clean the screens once or twice a season to eliminate any small dust particles in the mesh in order to maintain their pristine condition. Timing wise, it is recommended to do this maintenance and cleaning in spring right before you commence using the screens more regularly throughout the warmer months. Also do this cleaning after the winter season is over; and again, in autumn once summer is over. This can be done by simply using a mild detergent and water solution, then gently wiping them over to remove any obvious residue or debris.

Mesh

Depending on your choice in outdoor screens, there are over 30 types of mesh available in different colours and weaves so you can have variety in your choice.
