Pets can be hard on your home, and that can be especially evident when it comes to your window and door screens. Cats climb and scratch. Eager dogs jump up onto or run forward into screen doors. And all pets seem to enjoy leaning their body weight up against a screen. All of that force from you pets can lead to holes, tears, bowing or complete destruction of your screens.
If your screens and screen doors have been damaged by your pets and are unusable and unsightly, A to Z Window Screens can help! Let us replace your damaged screen door with pet screens! Replacing your damaged screens with pet screens will improve the look of your home and help prevent pets from damaging screens in the future.
How are pet screens different?
So how are pet screens different from traditional screens that are easily torn to bits by your pets? While most window screens are constructed from a relatively lightweight fiberglass mesh, pet screens are constructed for strength. The mesh on a pet screen is woven from PVC-coated polyester yarn that can stand up to your pet’s claws and weight. In fact, the mesh on a pet screen is seven times stronger and more durable than the mesh on a traditional fiberglass window screen!
Will pet screens change the look and function of your screens?
You don’t need to worry that heavier duty pet screens will change the look and function of your screens. Newly installed pet screens usually blend seamlessly with your remaining screens. A to Z Window Screens offers pet screens in both gray and black mesh, and most people find that installing black pet screens makes the pet screens indistinguishable from their home’s existing screens. When it comes to visibility through a pet screen the individual fibers of the screen mesh are thicker, but they are placed farther apart. That means you can still see clearly through your screens, and air will continue to flow easily. The screens may be slightly more visible and air flow may be lessened a bit, but most people find the difference negligible. At the same time, the mesh is still fine enough to keep bugs out of your home.
Where can pet screens be installed?
Pet screens can be installed on nearly any window or screen door in your home. We know screen doors, especially, are susceptible to abuse from your pets, but we also know that your pets will scratch and climb at nearly any screen. If your pet has a favorite window to sit at and watch the animal activity in the yard or neighbors passing by, it is wise to protect that window screen with a pet screen!
