If you are reading this post, you possibly are wondering Why It Might Be Time to Replace Your Screen Door. One of the more common questions that we receive from potential customers when they are inquiring about our Casper Disappearing Screens is “What are the benefits of retractable screen doors versus standard fixed screen doors?”. Listed below are the five benefits to consider.
Benefits of Retractable Screen Doors Versus Standard Fixed Screen Doors
I sat down with the owner of Casper Disappearing Screen Systems Inc., Kevin Boyd, to detail a comprehensive list of benefits of one of Casper's Disappearing Retractable Screens would have over a standard fixed screen door.
Lower Monthly Energy Costs
Casper Retractable Door Screens will allow homeowners to increase the flow of air throughout their home. Cooling your home through natural ventilation is the most energy efficient cooling method and will not only allow you to be more comfortable in your home on a warm day but will also help to reduce your energy bill! Though standard fixed screen doors will also allow for natural ventilation in your home, standard fixed screen doors are not commonly placed on French/ Double doors which provide greater ventilation than single screen doors.

Durability and LongevityWhile standard fixed screen doors are subject to the weather year round, Casper Disappearing Screens when not in use are retracted back into the screen housing to protect them from the elements. Casper Disappearing Screen doors have been shown to last longer and stand the test of time (and weather) better than traditional screen doors. The high-grade aluminum framing has a powder-coated finish that is designed to reduce fading and keep the paint from chipping and flaking off. Standard fixed screen doors have wheels and slides on the bottom of the screens that tend to rust and break off too easily as many homeowners can attest to. Casper Disappearing Screens uses a unique Spring Tension System that allows the screens to be pulled across and retract at ease while the stainless steel spring is protected from the elements inside the aluminum housing.
The View From Inside
For homeowners, the idea of looking through a standard fixed screen door whenever you gaze outside can be somewhat annoying. This is especially the case if you have a set of very nice French doors or if you have a beautiful sliding door. With a Casper Disappearing screen, having to look through a standard fixed screen door all the time is a thing of the past. When not in use, simply retract our screen door into its housing and enjoy unencumbered views out through the glass door. No more having to stare through that ripped or torn standard fixed screen. Our screens are there when you need them and then disappear when not in use.
Casper Disappearing Screens provide the maximum flexibility regardless of the door type. They work and look great on both In-Swinging and Out-Swinging doors; both Single, Double, Sliding Glass and French Double doors. With our recessed design, the Casper Disappearing Screen is mounted within the framework of the door, providing a clean look without taking away from the look of the door from the inside. Standard fixed screen doors have a bulky look & feel when mounted on the inside of a home. Other retractable screens are mounted on top of the trim or molding which takes away from the look of the door itself.
French Double Doors
For the longest time, there was only the standard fixed screen door.French Double door owners have been wanting a screen or set of screens that would not take away from the beauty and elegance of a set of French doors. Cue the Casper Disappearing Screen System for French Double door screens. Not only does this screen system allow homeowners to enjoy opening their French Doors without having to worry about bugs and insects crawling into their home but they also have a set of screens that are retracted back out of sight when not in use. The Casper Screen System is installed seamlessly within the framework of the door. No surface mounting onto the trim or molding required. Enjoy opening your French Doors with the peace of mind that nothing will be getting into your home except for that cool breeze!
