If you have a large door or opening in your home, you know how challenging it is to cover them. While these openings are great for giving you an excellent outside view and letting sunlight into your home, they also take away your privacy. Fortunately, you can use outdoor privacy screens in Calgary to cover them and improve the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your home.

If you are also looking for retractable screens and wonder what they are and why they are so great, here we have everything you need to know about them when contacting someone for screen rooms in Calgary!

What are Retractable Screens?

Retractable screens, like their namesake, are screens that retract into a housing fit into the door or window frame when not required. They move along tracks installed on the top and bottom of the door or window frame, making the retraction easier. Retractable screens are usually used for hard-to-screen openings, bi-fold doors, french doors, and stacking doors. 

Advantages of Retractable Screens-


#1- They come in a wide range of styles 

You can customize retractable screens according to your front elevation, interiors, and preferences. They are available in several designs, styles, and patterns to seamlessly blend into their surroundings. 

#2- You can customize their sizes 

You may have a different-sized window or door that does not allow you to use standard measurements of covers. But you can easily design your retractable screens to measure and fit precisely according to your opening. 

#3- They save energy 

Retractable screens are better than regular screens as you can control how and when you need them. If you want to heat your room, you can close them and facilitate your heating system with natural warmth. At the same time, you can open them when it is too sunny outside to keep your house cool, reducing the work your air-conditioner will need to do.

#4- They are low maintenance 

Most homeowners have enough to worry about on weekends without the stress of cleaning awnings and such. Well, there’s good news here! Since they close into their casings when not in use, retractable screens do not attract dust and dirt easily and are, therefore, pretty low maintenance. 

#5- You get motorized options 

If you have a large opening or want to get a more advanced alternative, you can get motorized retractable screens for easy deployment and storage.

#6- They are durable 

Retractable screens are not just about style. They are made of tough, tear-resistant, and highly durable vinyl-coated polyester or fibreglass fabric, giving them a long life.

#7- They protect you

Retractable screens protect you and your house from harmful UV rays, insects, and other weather elements. They are also a great option for privacy.
