We’ve all been there; sitting out on our porch enjoying a day off and soaking up as much of the vitamin D that we can get. Maybe you’re not so much a “porch person,” but you look forward to slow days spent at home in your most comfy clothes, cleaning or relaxing with the windows open, letting fresh air permeate your home, clearing away that stale smell and old stagnant air. The fresh air is not only needed to keep yourself and family healthy, but it is invigorating and a simple means for happiness.

Regardless of how you like to take your fresh air, you’ve probably experienced the annoyance of your peaceful state being interrupted by six and other multi-legged pests. It doesn’t matter how extensive the outdoor space, they always seem to make it into your porch area, your home, and other spaces, buzzing around your face, landing on top of your head, and worse yet, biting your extremities. It isn’t just these six-legged bullies that can put a damper on your fresh air experience. Large plant seed heads and other organic—and sometimes non-organic—items can also find their way into our homes to make a mess and disgust us.

We at Metro Screenworks and those at Genius® have all been there and weren’t going to put up with being bothered by insects and other annoyances. We weren’t going to continually suffer the annoyance of shooing out or killing flies lost in our homes, and we weren’t going to just stay cooped up in our homes with stale smelling, stagnant air.

One of the main reasons why we at Metro Screenworks hear many of our customers just giving in to  to living with flies and other pest that are for a reason unknown overly fascinated with landing on our ears, noses, and eyebrows is that our customers don’t want to commit to a screen being present all the time:

  • “I don’t want a screened in porch and the HOA won’t allow it.”

  • “Screens are annoying to move every time I want to let my dog out.”

  • “They don’t make screens for French doors.”

All of these reasons are valid. However, in most cases most customer’s reluctance is due more to them not knowing about retractable screens.

Retractable Window Screens & Screen Doors: Protection On Your Terms

Retractable insect screens and, specifically Genius® retractable screens, are our answer to wanting to have protection from insects and other pests. There are a lot of things that you should probably commit to, but a permanent screen door, window screens, and porch screens don’t have to be those things. With Genius retractable screens, you get to choose when you have insect screen and when you don’t.

Metro Screenworks only partners with screen product manufacturers that share the same values that we do: quality, custom options, and expanding the possibilities of what screens can be. Genius® does just that. According to Genius’ website, they are the “dominant supplier of retractable screen technology to many of the world’s best-known window and door manufacturers” and have been since 1980. Though their beginnings are based in Europe, each retractable screen is assembled in the U.S. Their commitment to “protection against insects, supporting fresh air, and enhancing viewing pleasure of their customers” is easily seen in the construction and functionality of their retractable screens and the options they provide their customers worldwide.

Customer Reviews - Diagram (having these have actual stars would be great)

 img3-4stars-geniusretractable.png Genius Roller Screen Door - 4 Star Review

Very happy with the roller screen door for my shed/studio. Took about an hour to install. Directions were clear, but included some steps that I didn't need to take, like cutting the bottom and top rails to size. They arrived the correct size. Also the directions on installing and securing the threshold protective "ramps" for the bottom track were not clear, if they were included at all, had to pretty much figure that out on my own. All in all easy enough if you're handy, good customer service and great product overall. Would recommend

Great product - 5 Star Review

Received the box. Well packaged. Opened it and started. First question was right or left? Do you determine from inside out or opposite. Figured that out (would have been good to have that in the instructions) the next step was to remove and replace the end caps. Harder than it looked in the instructions but got it done. Most difficult was to attach the cassette to the clips. Again takes some courage and strength. When you have done it a few times easy peasy. All of that being said I am going to order one for another door. I like it. Like the way it functions and like the quality.

Overall good quality - 4 Star Review

Good instructions, pretty straightforward installation. Roller tension is a little too high for my liking. Works as promised, good solution for better circulation and keeps bugs out!

Genius® French Retractable Screen Doors 

French doors are a classic look that fit a variety of building and home styles. However, if you have them, you may have assumed that screen doors were not going to be something that you could enjoy, which—in our opinion—completely defeats the purpose of having French doors! French doors are made to add style and functionality through looking beautiful and providing a bigger opening for not only enjoying the view, but also for natural light and fresh air. Genius® once again, fills a need to have protection from bug pests and other substances or objects that are floating through the air while also having whatever door you want.

You will need to head to your local home improvement store or ask your handy neighbor for the more basic tools that you will need such as a saw and screwdriver.

Retractable Window Screens vs. Traditional Window Screens

As we alluded to above, retractable window screens offer those things that traditional window screens do not and are actually far superior to traditional window screens in many ways.

Enhancing Your View

Since we already discussed this above, we will keep our explanation brief. If you are blessed to live in an area with a great view, why have it obscured by a screen? Yes, a traditional fiberglass screen doesn’t obscure your view “that much,” but if you install any other heavier duty screen, you can assume that your view isn’t going to be quite the same as if you were looking at it with your naked eye. What’s more, if you don’t have any other way of viewing your scenery other than out that one window, you will never get the full effect of your view. With Genius® retractable screens for your windows, you choose when you are looking through your screen and when you are seeing your view crystal clear.

Decreasing Your Energy Bills

Yes, your window screens really do affect your energy bills. Window screens can not only block harmful UV rays that tend to create more heat for the air conditioner to battle, but they also keep some amount of heat in during the colder months. With retractable screens, you have more control over when you receive the protection of your screens, as well as how much protection. If you want a heavier screen that provides more UV protection during the summer, you can install a thicker, heavier screen, but sometimes it’s nice to have the aid of the sun’s heat during colder seasons. Retractable screens allow you to not only get the most protection that you need, but to also have that protection when you want it.

Protecting Your Screens

In many areas of the country during multiple times of the year, we have to deal with harsh elements such as strong winds that can blow dust, debris, and other weather elements into our screens, ripping, stretching, or damaging our screens in some other way. Traditional screens that stay in place often get the brunt of mother nature’s wrath and are the bane of many homeowners or business owners who must repeatedly fix or replace their screens. Retractable screens, however, can be hidden away during those times when the storms are raging outside, saving you time and money not spent installing new screens.

Appearance

The value of our home isn’t just what it looks like on the inside or how many renovations it’s undergone to have the latest comforts and gadgets. Part of the value of your home does come from its curb appeal. Unfortunately, depending on the style of your home and the screens you have installed, your window screens can obscure some of the best elements of your home and can negatively affect its appearance. When you install the best retractable screens by Genius®, you can roll up your screens when you want to, allowing the beauty of your home and all those upgrades that you made to it to shine through.  

There is a time and a place for everything; however, we at Metro Screenworks think that, even though Genius retractable screens for windows haven’t been the traditional choice, that you and your family or stakeholders will love all the benefits that they will provide.
