Screen Door, Porch & Window Screen Rolls
Screen mesh hasn’t always been something used in residential and business structures. Screens first became widely used during the Civil War to keep bugs and similar pests out of buildings. After window screens and screen doors became widely used, there was a significant drop in the spread of disease. Our screens go unnoticed unless they aren’t doing their job; they serve us more than we realize. Before, we jump into the the purpose of rolls of screen, it is important to understand the basic purpose of screen itself.
Keep the Bugs Out
It is only due to our screens that we can open our windows or doors and let our home be refreshed with fresh air and the coolness or warmth of the outdoors. Though some small insects can still make it through some mesh—unless you install tiny mesh—our screening material keeps out those pests, such as flies and mosquitos that bring disease and destruction with them, outside where they belong.
Protection From Elements
Our screens can, in some cases, protect us from the elements. Our stronger more durable screening materials such as super screen or pet screen, can withstand the abuse that forces of nature—such as hail—inflict on our screens. Heavy duty screens can also weather “forces of nature” such as the claws of our pets, squirrels and raccoons, and other furry friends who live in less urban areas.
Home’s with missing, torn, or ill-fitting screens do not do well in terms of their of their resale value because replacing screens in contrast to other repairs is usually inexpensive. Having proper fitting screens, as well as ones that not only positively add to the overall aesthetic, but offer more than just the minimal protection from insect pests can contribute to the overall resale value of your home, business, and property.
Unless you are a contractor who creates custom screens or someone who has constructed a screened-in porch, you may be wondering why someone would want to invest in window screen rolls. Buying in bulk and specifically buying large rolls of screen isn’t something that everyone needs. However, for particular projects or purposes, buying a screen roll might be in your best interest. Here are some reasons why you may want to invest in a roll of screen.
If you are doing one small repair, then a whole roll of screen may be a bit too much, unless you prefer to have ample backup screen just in case. However, if you are someone who must succumb to repairing screens on a consistent basis or have a large window screen or screen panel that needs repair, then a screen roll may prove to be a worthy investment. Repair your screen door, large custom windows, or multiple windows easily with a window screen roll of your choice. Additionally, if you choose to repair your window screens or screen door instead of simply getting a completely new screen frame or door, you have the choice of using the screen material that will best fit your needs.
Large Scale Projects
Using screen rolls is the only choice that makes sense if you will be needing a large swath of screening material. Large scale projects can include, as mentioned above, large-scale repair projects, as well as screened-in porch projects. Though you can create a wonderful porch using premade porch panels, having the freedom to construct your own allows you to create a space that is truly yours. Depending on your accuracy and the scale of your job, if you invest in a screen roll, you may have all the screen you need. Window screen rolls are perfect for a contractor who specializes in creating custom window screens, screen doors, and installing screened in porches.
Investing in a screen roll can also be a means for upgrading your screens. Does your pet always rip through your screen door or claw at your screens? Or, do you want to leave your windows open for fresh air, but are incredibly allergic to pollens and other respiratory irritants? Or maybe, you have a wonderful view out your window and hate that you have screens that impair your view. Because Metro Screenworks provides high-quality custom screen solutions, we offer a variety of screen types that are more durable than regular screens so they can withstand the wear and tear of our furry friends, you can open your window and enjoyed filtered air, or gaze at your million dollar view unimpeded by screen. Screens aren’t just something to keep the bugs out, anymore. Due to technological advancements, modern window screens and screen doors provide even more advantages.

As alluded to earlier, window screen rolls are essential to accomplishing many custom screen projects. Due to the variety of roll sizes that Metro Screenworks offers, you are able to find a screen roll that will not only fit your project, but will also allow you the freedom to create the end product that you want.Though Metro Screenworks does offer other options such as pre-assembled window screens and screen doors, we also understand that often the projects that our customers need screen for are not so clear cut.

Choosing the proper screen is a must, but for something that most forget about on a daily basis, when it an opportunity arises that requires you to think about what screens to choose, often much thought isn’t put into this decision. Unfortunately, those who have the opportunity to choose their screens, miss out on a customization that could greatly add to their quality of life. If you are considering replacing your screens or must choose screen for a custom project, there are here are a few things to consider:
The location in which your screen will be installed plays a key role in what kind of screen roll you will buy. If you will be installing your screen in your screen door, you may want to choose a different screening material than that which you would install in your windows and the same goes for the screen that you install in your porch. Also, you must think about what you want your screen to do for you. Do you need your screen to simply keep the bugs out, do you need it to block the sun’s UV rays, filter your air, or withstand heavy use?
Need for Durability
Where you install your screen will determine your need for durability as well as the climate in which your home or business is located. If you reside in an area prone to hail and other weather extremes, you may want to invest in a highly-durable screening material such as super screen. If your pets are constantly tearing up your screens, then it may be time to invest in screen that can withstand their pawing, clawing, and the occasional headbutt into the door.
The aesthetics of your home can sometimes play a key role in the screening material that you choose. For example, a copper screen can be a visually pleasing addition, especially for older renovated homes or if you want to increase the curb value of your home, choosing invisible screen can be a wonderful option. If the way your window screen or screen door looks doesn’t mean anything to you then you can make your choice solely based on factors such as durability, and use needs.
Price point may also be a determining factor that must be weighed in conjunction with your needs as you choose your screens. You may be asking yourself, how can I get the screens I need on my budget? Thankfully buying in bulk, such as a screen roll, can help you get a screening material that will do all that you need it to.

One of the main reasons why screen was invented was for the purpose of keeping out insect pests who are not only annoying, but can also spread disease. Though normal screens keep out most pests, some—particularly those tiny insects called with no-see-ums—sometimes still make it inside causing frustration and mess. If you are currently struggling to keep those tiny little six-legged annoyances at bay, it might be time to install tiny mesh. Due to its densely woven mesh, you can still enjoy all the perks of a screen, but without the discomfort of no-see-ums.
