With us, you get more options. However, sometimes more options can be overwhelming. Here are some ways you can break down the decision-making process for choosing your new screen door.

Choose a Budget

The first step is to choose a budget. Choosing a budget can help you decide on the type of screen door that you will select and whether you will choose it to arrive pre-assembled, ready-to-be-installed into your home or unassembled. Unassembled doors have a lower price point. We offer three options for our screen doors:

Hercules - Top Tier

  • Heavy duty extruded aluminum frame
  • Steel rollers
  • Flush mount auto-latch handle with lock
  • Limited lifetime warranty on lock and rollers

Superior - Middle Tier

  • Extruded Aluminum frame
  • Steel rollers
  • Handle with lock
  • 1 year warranty on lock and rollers

Classic - Classic Design

  • Extruded aluminum frame
  • Steel rollers
  • Handle with lock
  • 90 day warranty on lock and rollers

Select a Screening Material

Once you know the type of screen door that you are selecting, you can begin to customize it. One of the best places to begin when customizing your door is to decide on the mesh. We offer several options to allow you to get the most out of your screen including traditional fiberglass. The other options we provide include:


  • Invisible screen
  • Provides enhanced visibility of view

Pet Screen

  • 7-times stronger than traditional screen
  • Engineered to withstand pet and critter paws, claws, and teeth
  • Weather/Hail-resistant

Solar Screen

  • 80%-90% UV protection
  • Reduces heat, contributing to energy efficiency
  • Protects home interiors

Aluminum Wire Mesh

  • Stronger than fiberglass
  • Black for better visibility

Tiny Mesh Screen

  • Keeps gnats and other small bugs out

Pick Other Customizations

Once you’ve chosen the screen material you would like in your screen door, you can begin to select other customizations including size, frame color, and additional package options. We provide five frame color options:

  • Almond
  • Beige
  • Bronze
  • Mill (no finish)
  • White

An additional package we offer is the Costal Package which includes stainless steel rollers and locks. This package helps your screen door last longer in coastal regions and other moist environments.

After you’ve selected these customizations, it is time to place your order!
