In Which We All Learn About Construction

Do you know when we first learned the basics about construction? It might sound silly to admit this, but it was not until we had a sun room added onto our home. As the construction workers made plans, sourced materials, and then put up the structure, we were sure to ask a lot of questions and to observe the actions they took. And you know what? We were hooked! From that point on, it has been one of our goals to learn more about construction and contractors. Part of our learning journey has been to create this website and share it with you.


Retractable Screens Make It Possible To Get Fresh Air Without Bugs

If you have a sunroom that leads out onto a deck, you might want to be able to open up the space in between the two sometimes so that you can expand the space that you have to enjoy the world and the outside. The problem is that while the outside can be a lot of fun and incredibly beautiful, it is also full of things like bugs. You don't want to have all those bugs disturbing your enjoyment. There are several things that you can do. One of them is to get retractable screens installed on your deck or in between your sunroom and your deck. You are going to need to have a roof of some sort in order to anchor the screens at the top. 

Automatic vs Manual

If you are going to get retractable screens to use at your house, one of the things that you can do is decide whether you want to have your screens be automatic or manual. The nice thing about using automatic retractable screens is that you don't have to do anything to get the screens open except push a button or flip a switch. It will be a lot easier for you because you can open all the screens all at once or close them all. If you have a limited reach or limited manual dexterity, then automatic screens can be the way for you to go. 

Vertical vs. Horizontal

You should also think about whether you want to have the screens installed so that they are vertical or horizontal. They both have their own places and their own uses. For example, screens that are installed so that they open on the horizontal are often used as retractable screen doors. The screens can have a track at the top and bottom of the door so that the screen just opens or closes along those tracks. The tracks will help to make sure that the screen comes out and retract smoothly, easily, and evenly. You don't want to have the screens go back unevenly because they can get damaged that way. 

Retractable screens can make it so that you can open your sunroom to your deck and keep insects out of your house. There are also retractable screens that you can install on your doors so that you can open the house up and get some air moving through your house without bringing in mosquitoes.
