Extruded aluminum sliding screen doors
The best sliding screen door for a lot of traffic is the Extruded aluminum sliding screen door, It is heavy duty and extremely sturdy. You can also get this door in a few different finishes and make sure that it is a baked enamel finish so it will last you for years without chipping or fading.
You can ad a pet door which will protect the bottom portion of the screen from tearing. this is called a pet protector or pet grille. Make sure the sliding screen door comes with all metal parts, especially the rollers, handle and lock latch.
Avoid Roll form sliding screen doors like the plague, they will only frustrate you every time you have to open them. I do not recommend buying these light weight usually made out of tin or steal screen doors.
Some patio screen doors may need a pet guard grille
The screen protector is a must with kid’s and pet’s. We are in business thanks to children and pet’s they are the number one cause for screens breaking and tearing. One way to help keep your screens lasting longer is the screen protector or what some people call the pet grille.
They are good for swinging screen doors and sliding screen doors only. They get installed on the outside of the screen frame and are held on by four screws on the four corners.
There are two kind of screen protectors, one is thin, light weight, rattles and usually looks warped. The other type is thicker, heavier, does not rattle and is pretty straight. Another way to tell them apart is the one that rattles is spray painted and is usually all scratched and the other better quality screen protector’s finish is baked enamel which always looks like it’s in new condition. these can be installed by a handyman or a screen company will do it.
How to clean a patio screen door and what you will need
- Large sponge
- Dish soap
- Towels (for drying)
We strongly suggest you clean one window screen at a time, because if you don’t and clean them all at once, it will be difficult to find the correct window each screen fits into on the house.
- Find a area with grass where your hose can reach.
- Go get a screen.
- Lay it down flat on the grass.
- Put the sponge in the bucket with dish soap and water.
- Grab the sponge and while screen lays flat on the grass, scrub it softly with sponge from side to side 2 or 3 times.
- Flip screen over and repeat step 5.
- Grab hose and rinse it off.
- Stand screen up and with a dry towel wipe it dry.
- Once you’ve dried it, you’re done with that screen.
