Getting Prepared for an Open Home

Spring’s pleasant temperatures can tempt you to open your doors and windows to let the fresh air in. Airing out your home in the  spring, and throughout the year, isn’t just a matter of taking in pleasant breezes and temperatures, chirping birds and a fresh atmosphere; it also can make your home healthier. 

According to the U.S. EPA, poor indoor air quality can aggravate allergies and lung conditions and pose serious health risks. In addition to dust, dander and mold, your indoor air is filled with chemicals that enter the air from your furniture, flooring and cleaning products. Opening your doors and windows to air out your home can improve indoor air quality by giving these indoor air pollutants a way to exit your home and filling your home with the much healthier outdoor air.

Before you open your windows and doors to let the stale air out and the fresh air in, you will need to prepare your home’s windows and doors to keep pests out and keep your home secure. Here’s how you can prepare your home to be an open home.

Replace damaged or missing window screens.

If your windows aren’t outfitted with proper window screens in good repair, you are opening your home up to bugs, birds and other nuisances. While the home-improvement does provide some options for repairing and replacing window screens, you will find that repair kits leave unsightly patches and warp screen frames. And replacement window screens don’t come in common sizes. The best way to deal with missing or damaged window screens for your open home is to seek custom window screen replacement.

Install screen doors.

Many homes don’t have screens on their doorways that allow for an open home. You can fix this with a variety of screen door options. There are traditional swinging and sliding screen doors, as well as rollaway screen doors that can be pulled over the doorway when you want to let the fresh air in and rolled away when you don’t want a screen in place. Whether you have sliding doors, traditional doors or French doors, you can find a screen door to fit.

Secure your home.

If security concerns keep you from opening your home, there are security screen door products that let in the breeze without comprising security. Security screen doors feature tough door frames that lock into place so they can’t be kicked or pressed in. The screen mesh is made from metal that can’t be sliced with a razor or knife.

Explore your screen options.

If you worry that traditional screens aren’t suitable for your home, there are plenty of options for customizing your window and door screens to suit your needs. You can opt for more durable pet screens that resist tears and pressure from pets, or solar screens that shade your home to lower your home-cooling bills. Window and door screens also come in a variety of color options to suit your home’s style.

If you’re ready to improve indoor air quality by opening your home to the fresh air, A to Z Window Screens can help! We have a variety of window and door screen options to suit your needs, and all of our screen products are custom built for your home. Call to schedule your consultation today!

Benefits of a Clearview Retractable Screen Door

Do you have a love/hate relationship with your screen door? Do you love that it allows you to open up your home to fresh breezes but hate that it’s constantly in the way? A to Z Window Screens can resolve your relationship with your screen door with a Clearview Retractable Screen Door! Clearview Retractable Screen Doors offer a variety of benefits, without the drawbacks of a traditional screen door.Clearview Retractable Screen Door - Sacramento CA - A to Z Window

Cool breezes

The No. 1 reason people want screen doors on their homes is because they want to be able to open up their doors on beautiful days to enjoy pleasant breezes. Just like a traditional screen door, a Clearview Retractable Screen Door does just that! When you want to open up your home to the outdoors, you simply roll open the screen door over your doorway opening, and you will be able to enjoy the outside air without worrying about bugs.

Roll-away convenience

The No. 1 reason people hate their screen doors is that screen doors get in the way. Screen doors add an additional barrier to entering and exiting your home. Simply put, they are an inconvenience. With a retractable screen door, the screen rolls away when it isn’t in use. That means your screen door isn’t in the way when you are entering and exiting your home.

Clearer views

Do you enjoy the views from your home and don’t want a screen that gets in the way when it isn’t in use? Because a Clearview Retractable Screen door is only in place when you want it to be, you can keep the screen door rolled away into its housing so that you don’t have to look out of your door through a screen that isn’t being used.

Ease of operation

Screen doors can stick. They can snap back into place. At best, they’re a pain. At worst, they can pose a hazard. Clearview Retractable Screens are easy to use. They won’t become stuck or hard to open and close like a sliding screen door. They don’t snap back into place like a swinging screen door. In fact, Clearview Retractable Screen Doors come with patented technology that ensures they close slowly and won’t snap back.

Versatility

Clearview Retractable Screen Doors are highly versatile. They can be fitted to nearly any door. Clearview Retractable Screen Doors are custom fit to your specific doorway. Single entry doors, French doors, double doors and sliding doors all can be outfitted with Clearview Retractable Screen Doors.

What is the ClearView Difference?

You’ve decided that a retractable screen door is the right addition for your house; it allows you to open your house to pleasant breezes when the weather permits and to roll the screen discretely out of the way when the screen isn’t in use. But how do you choose the right retractable screen door for your home? Before you make the selection, you should see what set ClearView retractable screen doors apart.

ClearView screen doors are customizable to any doorway.

Regardless of the setup of your doorway, you can customize a ClearView retractable screen door to fit your needs. Clearview retractable screen doors can be fitted to the surface or the recesses of your doors or windows. They can have left or right openings. ClearView retractable screen doors can be outfitted on French doors or even on the inside of doors that swing outwards.

ClearView retractable screen doors are made from durable, high-quality materials.

ClearView retractable screen doors are built from materials that are made to withstand elements, staying strong and beautiful for years to come. ClearView retractable screens are built with 33 percent more aluminum, on average, than the competition, making the doors stronger and sturdier for an easier glide and increased durability. Rather than inferior plastic, which can become brittle over time, ClearView retractable screens beat the competition by using double-6 nylon instead. Even the paint ClearView uses is a higher grade of architectural powder coating that won’t fade or oxidize.

ClearView retractable screens have patented Slow-Close Speed Reducer technology.

While other retractable screen doors will snap abruptly back into place, ClearView retractable screen doors have patented Slow-Close Speed Reducer technology to increase the safety of the doors. With Slow-Close Speed Reducer, ClearView retractable doors roll smoothly, safely and slowly into place, so they won’t pinch fingers or pet tails or cause damage to the door.

ClearView retractable screens have a fully enclosed housing.

Unlike most of their competitors, ClearView retractable screen doors have an entirely enclosed housing for the screen. That means that your screen door is better protected when it’s rolled away to help increase the door’s lifespan. It also keeps out dirt and other debris that can inhibit the smooth motion of the screen. And the enclosed housing hides the screen away when it’s not in use for a cleaner look.

ClearView retractable screens offer plenty of options.

On top of the other benefits, ClearView retractable screens are customizable! Clearview retractable screen door frames are available in 12 standard colors, 20 wood-grain finishes and more than 300 custom colors. You can choose from five different screen colors. Clearview retractable screens also are available with optional magnets and locks. With ClearView retractable screens, you can get the look and function you’re looking for in a retractable screen door.

If you’re ready to enhance your home with a retractable screen door, call A to Z Window Screens to schedule your consultation today. A to Z can help you choose the right ClearView retractable screen door for you.

Mosquitos. Are your screens ready for attack?

Unless you were an hour late to work this morning and couldn’t figure out why, you were among the millions of people who begrudgingly set your clocks forward 60 minutes on Sunday in observance of Daylight Savings Time, losing one hour of much needed sleep, an hour of time with friends and/or family, or 60 minutes of unattainable rest that you will not have the chance to try to get back until Fall.

If you’re like me and most people on this great planet of ours, you have questioned why Daylight Savings Time was instituted in the first place and why, in the age of self-landing rockets, full-body imaging, electric cars and $9.00 cups of coffee, do we still have the need for it.

Well, with my curiosity getting the better of me, I believe I may have researched my way to the reason for the institution of Daylight Savings Time, and while most of us are not big fans of the answer, it might put your mind at ease (at least it did mine) to know what the answer is . . . WAR. While the beginning and ending dates of Daylight Savings Time have changed over the years and the countries that observe it have jumped on and off the Daylight Savings Time bandwagon, it was originally instituted to conserve fuel needed to produce electric power during World War I. I did not, much to my dismay, find one good answer to why we still observe it.

Regardless, despite the fact that Daylight Savings Time was established during an era of great challenges, today, at least for me personally, Daylight Savings Times means some awesome things are right around the corner – longer days, warmer nights, barbeques, and the exhausting vacations with family to sandy beaches for which I always forget to pack the sunscreen.

At A to z Screens, however, Daylight Savings Time means we are about to go to war with one inevitable thing . . . MOSQUITOS. Back in the days of WWI, the little bloodsuckers were simply an itchy annoyance, unless you happened to be vacationing in a sandy beached country known for malaria. Now-a-days, they can carry the West Nile Virus and the Zika Virus, giving to you and your blood more than they take, and infected mosquito population in the Sacramento-Yolo area continues to grow annually (Source: The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District).

It is for this reason that we are asking you to “spring” into action and prepare for war! Check your home for any bent, broken, ripped or tattered window screens and/or screen doors, and if you find any, call us at 916-408-2496. We will make it our mission to get you the breeze without any the bugs, and estimates are always FREE with NO HIGH-PRESSURE SALES TACTICS.

Stay secure this spring with a new security screen door from A to Z

Soon, we’ll be enjoying spring’s warmer breezes and pleasant temperatures. But do you find yourself reluctant to open your front door to let in the spring breeze because of security concerns? With a security screen door from A to Z, you can open your home to spring’s refreshing breezes while keeping your home safe and secure.

Here are some things you probably don’t know about security screen doors:

Security screen doors are incredibly strong.

The frames on security screen doors are constructed from aluminum alloys that are up to six times stronger than steel. The screens are securely clamped to the frames, and the frames are affixed to your door jamb with incredibly strong bolts. The doors are strong enough to resist a criminal trying to kick or break down the door.

Security screen doors won’t block your view.

In most cases, it’s difficult to tell the difference between a security screen door and a traditional screen door. While some security doors feature decorative elements over part of the screen, you still will have a clear view out of a portion of your door, and you’ll be able to see anyone who approaches. Other security screen doors have no decorative element: The security comes from the use of an incredibly strong stainless steel mesh screening that can’t be sliced with a razor or kicked in.

Security screen doors can be decorative.

When you think of a security screen, you might thing of jail-like bars that add an unattractive, institutional quality to your home. With A to Z’s security screen doors, that couldn’t be further from the truth! We provide decorative screen doors that fit with your home’s style, or security screen doors that look exactly like traditional screen doors.

Security screen doors give you options.

A to Z Window Screens offers so many options in security screen doors, you’re sure to find one that fits with your taste. We offer screen doors in three different brands. Each brand offers different styles, colors and finishes. You can find classic designs, modern designs, or go with a traditional-looking screen door. We even offer custom-made screen doors so you can choose your own design!

Security screen doors come with guarantees.

The brands of security screen doors we carry are so confident in their products, they come with guarantees! If your security screen door doesn’t keep criminals from entering through your doorway, the companies will cover damage and property loss, up to a certain dollar amount.

If you’re ready to enjoy the fresh spring air while keeping your home safe and secure and live around Sacramento, call A to Z Window Screens today! We can show you your many security screen door options and help you select a model that fits your taste and your home’s security needs.

Celebrate Labor Day with a Retractable Screen Door

The first Monday of September is Labor Day.
Labor Day has always been a bit confusing to me. It is the day that we celebrate the working professionals and their years of sacrifice and toil that made this country great…yet, we celebrate by taking the day off? Huh? How does that work? We didn’t get where we are as a nation by kicking our feet up on the desk for even one second! To buck the system this Labor Day, my staff and I are going to be breaking our backs taking care of business for you — because nobody wants to have to wait a single day longer than necessary for their sun screens, screen doors, and security doors!

To celebrate Labor Day, I’d also like to introduce to you one of the greatest “labor saving” devices ever invented in the world of retractable screen doors: The “Safe Glide Speed Reduction System”! It is at the heart of what makes our Clearview Disappearing Screen doors the best retractable screen door system that money can buy!

Anybody who’s ever used a retractable screen door knows that if the handle slips out of your hand…. WHAM! The handle snaps back into its housing violently with a loud and embarrassing “clang!” But who wants to have to hold onto the handle as the screen retracts all the way back into the housing? And what homeowner wants to be the broken record that warns all guests “don’t let go of the screen door” over and over and over? That sounds like too much work to me!

The Clearview Retractable Screen door is the only retractable screen door system that has a patented “Safe-Glide Speed Reduction System” built into the housing. This means that you can let go of the handle, and the door will gracefully and smoothly retract into it’s housing without snapping back! Think of all the labor you’ll avoid this Labor Day, this fall, and forever more when you’re not having to swat flies and mosquitoes throughout the house!

I think it’s only fitting that we have a 10% off sale on any Clearview Retractable Screen Door purchased on or before September 30th! Clearview Retractable Screen doors are the only retractable screen doors that DON’T SNAP BACK! If the door handle slips out of your hand, our retractable screen door gently rolls back up into it’s housing (off to the side of the door), opening with no risk of smashing fingers or damaging the door. With the patented safe-glide speed reducer, you won’t have to repeat yourself a thousand times over, telling your guests to “not let go of the door!”

Take advantage of the cool fall breeze without the bugs by ordering your Clearview Retractable Screen Door during September’s Labor Day Sale!

Call A to Z Window Screens today to schedule your free, no obligation in-home consultation. We can be reached at 916-408-2496.
