French Door

If you think having French doors means you can’t have screen doors, think again. Genius® retractable screen doors make it easy to enjoy the protection of a screen. These screen doors will stay out of the way of your French doors when you do decide to use your doors. Enjoy width and height options as well as frame colors. Learn more and shop here!

Large Openings

Change the oil or hangout in your garage watching the neighborhood with more ease and comfort with retractable screens for large openings. These screens can cover the opening of your garage but can also be used for patios, porches, and other large openings that provide ventilation, but need protection from pests. We offer a few styles depending on the area the screen is covering. Use pull-down styles for garage openings and porch enclosures and sliding options for larger openings. Genius provides solutions for everyday problems — shop all of their large opening products here.

Pre-assembled, Easy-To-Install & Unassembled

We offer our screen doors already assembled and ready-to-install. This allows you to avoid having to place the screen and other components in your screen door which can make installing your screen door more complicated. If you’re replacing your screen door, this can be a great option to get a door that will last and you can install yourself. Additionally, we provide Genius COOL retractable screens that can be installed within 30 minutes. Though these offer less customization, they can shorten the installation process.

Unassembled sliding screen doors come with all the parts you need to create your door and install it. Though this option requires a bit more elbow grease, it can fit lower budgets while allowing you to enjoy the same quality of sliding screen door if it had come assembled. Whether you’ve installed many or this is your first screen door you’re assembling and installing, we are here to help! Contact us — our screen experts would love to help you find the perfect new screen door for your needs and help you install it.
