The Indestructible Screen Door
Odds are, replacing your screen door probably isn't your favorite home maintenance task. Finding the replacement parts can be time-consuming, and it can be an overall frustrating undertaking.
There are many things that can break or permanently damage our screen doors such as age and use, improper installation, party accidents, and the effects of our innocent pets.
Pets & Screen Doors: Mortal Enemies
Our little fur babies can be the bane of our screen door’s existence. It isn't just our pets' excitement for the great outdoors that can cause our screen doors to become damaged. Continual scratching can wear holes in our screen doors, especially when we haven't trimmed our pets' nails in a while.
Many pet owners resign themselves to simply living with tortured-looking screen doors and chasing errant flies that found their way into the house. However, you don’t have to live like this. You can have a nearly unbreakable screen door that will withstand the wear and tear of our pets and others who have a tendency to rip, shred, and bend our screen doors.
Pet screen or super screen was used in its construction.
If you make frequent trips down the screen aisle at your local home improvement store, you may assume that your only options are fiberglass or aluminum screen doors. Luckily, we offer many different options for heavy duty screen doors.
If your pets or other equally destructive persons are the main cause for your screen door’s demise, then we recommend the use of pet screen. These doors are fitted with a vinyl-coated screening that is made to withstand the pawing, clawing, and innocent destruction that our pets cause. Super screen is a little less heavy-duty than pet screen, but can provide nearly equal tear-resistance.

- Made from vinyl-coated polyester
- Available in multiple screen roll sizes for easy installation
- Available in our ready-to-install or ready-to-assemble screen doors

Other Ways to Use Pet Screen: For Screening Features That Last
Super Screen: Created For Ultimate Durability
Super screen, like pet screen, is created to withstand the elements that are the toughest on screens like hail, pets, and even wear-and-tear from our kids. Here are the things you need to know about super screen:
- It is three times stronger than traditional screen — even aluminum screen
- Does not break down from sun damage
- Available in screen rolls of multiple sizes
- Can be purchased in ready-to-install or ready-to-assemble screen doors
- Available in our pre-assembled porch screen panels
Super screen is the perfect material to use for all of your screening projects when you are looking for longevity and durability you can count on.
Ways to Use Super Screen: Screen You Can Count On
Super screen can be installed in your screen doors. However, it is perfect to be used for your screened-in porch, patio, or pool projects as well as anywhere around the house where a strong screen is required. Use super screen for:
- Screen door
- Window screens
- Screened in porch, patio, pool
If you were looking for a screen that can do it all, your search is now over.
Which Screen Do I Choose?
You are probably wondering which screen to choose when it comes to creating your indestructible screen door. When you are choosing between super screen and pet screen, the factor to consider is the coarseness of the screen you are installing. Pet screen is more coarse than super screen which can affect visibility. If that is a concern, super screen might be your best option.
