On beautiful days in Denver, it’s nice to open the windows and door and let the sunlight and warm breeze flood the room. Screens on your doors and windows make that easy to do without the worry of any household pests finding their way in. But, one small tear in the screen can be a green light so it’s important to keep them in good condition to ensure you can continue enjoying days like these. And if your screen door has seen better days, perhaps it’s time to find the right screen door replacement
The most common type of screen door replacement
A hinged screen door is the type of door most commonly found in homes. The screen slides open either horizontally or vertically, and is directly connected to the door frame. They are the most budget friendly option when it comes to screen door replacement, and a no-nonsense type of door that will serve its purpose and do its job well.
Have you tried a magnetic screen door?
Magnetic retractable doors aren’t as common but they are oh so convenient. Rather than having a bulky door frame that may or may not be mounted alongside another door, the magnetic retractable door utilizes two mesh panels that automatically close by way of magnets placed strategically along the middle. You just walk right through the mesh which automatically opens and then closes shut again behind you.
Have you considered an invisible screen door?
That’s right, you can actually buy a screen door that is basically invisible, or at least retractable giving the appearance of being invisible. If you don’t care for the look of a screen door, then this might just be the product for you. They can be used with any type of door opening, even double or French doors and simply slide open and closed almost like antique pocket doors.
Screen door replacement with character
You might also consider replacing your existing screen door with another that has more character. You would be surprised at what you might find strolling the aisles of flea markets and architectural salvage stores. Just be sure to measure your existing door before you leave home, and to bring your tape measure along with you, so that you can be sure the door you fall in love with will actually fit the space.
