Screen functions well and is a perfect fit. The mounting hardware didn’t really work for that window but I worked something out quickly. It was dented during delivery, but it wasn’t a functional problem, but I thought you’d want to know that as carefully and securely your company packed it, the shipper still found a way to dent it.
The product was of great quality, great price and measurements were exact. So easy to oder online.
I paid extra for the ultravue and they look fantastic. The white frames also match perfectly in my windows so they're less of an eyesore than the previous ones
I am pleased with the 5 wicket screens I ordered. They are exact in size, well made to my specification, and fit my windows perfectly. Order came in the time specified.
I ordered the custom located wickets, and all the sizes were right. The screens work well.
These screens were built exactly to the dimensions spec'd. Strong material and we love the invisible screens. Literally cannot see that there are screens on the windows.
I have an atypical awning window in my bathroom that was the source of too many insect visits. My custom screen arrived and a) fit perfectly (measure twice!) and b) solved my problem elegantly. The wicket door is simple and unobtrusive.
