Most of us have owned, or at least seen, residential screen doors. However, in the past, many homeowners didn’t buy them because it brought to mind flimsy construction and loud, banging exits and entrances. But over the years, they have undergone many advances, and today these products are smoothly finished, sturdy and aesthetically pleasing.
Screens open up your home to the outdoors, making it feel less gloomy and much bigger. And, depending on the type you choose, residential screen doors also offer additional security locks and features that provide an extra barrier of protection between the outside world and your home. But probably the main benefit of these doors is that, while they allow fresh air in, they also keep pests like mosquitoes and flies at bay.
Beyond functionality, residential screen doors enhance curb appeal. Your entryway is one of the first things that passers-by see, so these fixtures can actually increase the market value of your home. Having said this, it’s important that the construction of them is solid, and that they feel that they have substance to them. They should also close and open smoothly and easily. Even though you want the doors to be lightweight and subtle, you’ll also want to be sure you’re getting your money’s worth.
