Most people love the view from their large residential windows but hate the harsh glare. This is where roll-down patio screen enclosures in West Palm Beach come in handy. Roll-down screens have many names but one important use: keeping your home cool without scarifying your beautiful view. They work to block out the sun, harmful UV rays and can even lower the cost of your electricity bill.
If this is your first time hearing about roll down, also known as retractable, screens, you’re probably wondering what they are more than how you can benefit from them. In general, they are a protective screen that, as the name implies, roll up and down for partial or complete coverage.
At Screen Builders, our screen solutions are custom designed and built to last. We can have your screen designed for almost any application, and virtually any opening. When you want the window open and visible let the screen roll up and in seconds your screen is gone. Now, you can experience a clear, unobstructed view and be able to relax outdoors any time you want.
Some homeowners who wish to reduce the amount of heat that gets transferred through their windows (ultimately reducing their utility bills), while keeping their home cool would replace their original windows with UV protective ones. While effective, it’s a more costly solution than purchasing roll-down screens.
Now that you know what they are, let’s explore the full benefits they will offer you, your family, and your guests.
We briefly touched on its ability to protect you and your family from harsh UV rays, which can cause sun damage, sunburns, and even skin cancer. These enclosures effectively block your home from UV rays, so you don’t have to wear sunscreen indoors if you have expansive windows.
Yes, if you didn’t know, wearing sunscreen indoors is recommended with large windows! You won’t have to worry about that any longer with this low-cost improvement.
Reduced Utility Bills
How energy efficient is your home?
Many homes lack important features that make them energy efficient, but efficiency can save you thousands in the long run. In South Florida, homeowners depend on AC year-round, which can do a number to their utility bills. Furthermore, running your AC as frequently as needed in the sunshine state is terrible for the environment.
How do you solve both of these problems? You guessed it: roll down screen enclosures for your patio.
Protect Your Furniture
If you want to protect your hardwood floors, this is one measure you can take. Prolonged sun exposure can damage your wood, causing it to fade permanently. Sun exposure can also damage your expensive furniture.
How close is your furniture to your windows?
If you are like most homeowners, then it’s likely very close. Protect your personal belongings from harsh sunlight and UV rays and make sure they last longer and remain as beautiful as the day you purchased them.
Enjoyable Patio Dining
Make patio dining enjoyable! Many homeowners who dine outside have similar complaints: bugs, humidity, and harsh sunlight. As we head deep into the fall and winter months, we don’t have to worry about the glaring sunlight and humidity as much, but we still have plenty of bugs to contend with. Mosquitoes, flies, bees, and even wasps can turn a lovely evening into a nightmare. Make this a problem of the past by contacting Screen Builders for a free quote.
Do you cherish your privacy?
Of course, you do, because who doesn’t?
Another great aspect of screens is they create a private barrier between you and your neighbors. You can see what’s going on outside, but it’s difficult for potentially nosy neighbors to see you.
Let’s face it, windows are fragile. If they don’t shatter when an object accidentally gets hurled at it, they will certainly crack. This may be a common problem if your backyard is crowded with kids. Always keep your windows safe. Simply roll your screen down and your windows are securely protected.
