Warranty Information Is Vital

You should always read the small print and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Often times the warranty is an afterthought after the purchase has been made, be sure that you know before you make your purchase what it entails.  Look for a warranty that will offer long-lasting structural coverage to ensure you get years out of your investment.  If the offered warranty does not seem to reflect a good long-lasting product then keep looking.

Flush or Frame Mounted?

A frame mounted door provides you with a steel mounting frame that is independent, most professionals consider these doors to be more secure.  You should also be aware that a flush mounted door may shift as settling takes place with your home, this is due to the fact that it is mounted to the door jamb directly.  Whether you choose a frame or flush mounted is really a personal preference but it is important to understand the differences between the two so that you can make an informed decision before making a purchase.

Making Room for Metal Screen Doors

When you think of a metal screen door, you might think of the classic metal screen door, which is often made from aluminum. Looking at Grandma’s house with the screen door on it, just remember she needed to have it so the air could flow through it, but you don’t have to have that old-fashioned door on your home. However, aluminum screen doors are far from the only game in town. Metal screen doors can come in a few different metals, including:

  • steel
  • aluminum
  • metal alloy

Whichever one you choose depends on what you’re looking for in a metal screen door. If you’re considering a metal screen door, one of the reasons behind your choice is likely security. Each metal door material has its own pros and cons, so you’ll need to decide what’s important to you. In addition, as with all door choices, another major factor in making a decision is how much maintenance the door will need and  if you can handle that. Another factor, of course, is the amount of your budget and want to invest. That might be a bigger factor for you than security, so be sure to evaluate your needs thoroughly.

Securing the Premises

You might think that aluminum or even a metal alloy is flimsier than steel. While that’s true to some extent, however all metal screen doors can be made strong enough to function as security doors. The important piece to remember is why you’ll be investing in this door in the first place and that is generally to let the air flow through, but more importantly to keep your premises more secure. What size investment do you want to make or how important is it that your family and belongings need better protection?

The biggest drawback to choosing aluminum or metal alloy screen doors, though, is that the frames must be widened to be secure enough. What that means for you is that you’ll lose some viewing space as well as ventilation if you opt for a door other than steel. In fact, by most estimates, you will lose almost half the air and view with aluminum and metal alloy screen doors that you’ll still have with steel. This may not be a deal-breaker for you, but it’s something that you should keep in mind.

Weathering the Water

As we’ve previously discussed, maintenance is often a deciding factor in choosing a door material. If you live in an area or a climate where your exterior doors will be facing a lot of snow or rain, you’re definitely wondering how metal screen doors will stand up to the challenges. You don’t want to have to run out there and dry it off as soon as the precipitation ends, do or do you? Regardless of the metal used, a little maintenance at the right time can help it stay nice and functioning well.

While aluminum doors can be more expensive than steel, they have a big advantage over the latter because they won’t rust. Steel doors can rust, but if they’re properly prepared, it should take a significant amount of time before you start to see it. They can last up to a decade with proper treatment and even then, all you’ll have to do is recoat them or have them recoated. Additionally, most metals are eco-friendly, if they ever wear out, you can take them to the recycle center and know you are helping the earth too.

Done in the Sun

You might not worry about too much rain or snow, but that doesn’t mean you don’t still have concerns about the weather. If your climate is the exact opposite of rainy—if too much sun is your concern—then your biggest consideration should be the finish. If your metal screen door is going to be in the sun, a painted finish is probably not the best choice for you. Paint will fade over time. If you like changing the color on your home regularly, it may be that you paint the door more often, so you don’t have to live with fading.

That might be something you’re willing to live with, but if not, you should choose a metal screen door with a powder-coated finish. Unlike paint, when the powder coating is applied, it’s cured with heat. That makes it last longer in general and especially when exposed to high temperatures. Unlike other materials that get “baked in the sun” your metal door that has a powder coating has already been baked. Because of this, they will look great for a long time and while looking more beautiful is nice, more importantly the metal screen door will keep your home safe and secure.

Questions And Answers

Are metal screen doors available for sliding glass doors?

Metal screen doors are available for sliding glass doors. Usually a portion of a sliding glass door is metal, while other elements of the door framing are vinyl. This combination utilizes the best properties of both materials: the strength of metal with the flexibility of vinyl, where that flexibility is advantageous. The color-fastness of metal sliding glass doors is less stable than the color-fastness of vinyl doors: doors that slide sustain normal wear and tear, which can include scrapes.

Is it simple to install metal screen doors?

Installation of standard metal screen doors is not complicated if you are good with instructions. Lighter weight metal screen doors can be a one-person job, but it is easier with two people there to assist one another. If it is a replacement door, existing hardware may make installation less cumbersome. For a new installation where installing hardware on the doorway frame is required you will need a drill, a level, shims, sinkers, a marker, and minimal strength.

Are arched metal screen doors possible?

Yes, arched metal screen doors are possible. Their purpose and your own style preference determines whether or not you would have one custom-made or choose a prefabricated model. For example, if you’re seeking security and the door will be installed in front of an existing arched door you might choose a prefabricated arched metal screen door that mimics the shape of the existing main door but doesn’t match that door’s dimensions precisely. The point would be to keep an intruder from sneaking through spaces within the screen door – not to perfectly match the shape of the main door.

What is a basic vintage metal screen door?

Basic vintage metal screen doors are rectangular and use mesh screening. They have charm, particularly for households that are decorated in a vintage style. But vintage metal screen doors are rarely pristine. To a great extent they are made of aluminum and show wear and tear from decades of normal use. It’s important to recognize that important features of vintage metal screen doors – the hardware for replacing the screen, for example – might not be in working order.

How can metal screen doors be customized?

Customized metal screen doors can be quite lovely. Being the first impression of a house gives custom metal screen doors the potential to be works of art. An artisan manufacturer would be the source for this type of work. The custom imagery is almost limitless. Limitations would be the tensile strength of the metal being curved, the overall weight the design would create, the cost, and the abilities of the designer. Examples of imagery are a monogram, wildlife, or a filigree design.

Do metal screen doors get very hot, or very cold?

If metal screen doors are made of steel they can be cold to the touch in freezing climates, and if they have direct sunlight on them for long period during high temperatures they can be too hot for the tiny fingers of children to comfortably let themselves back into the house. Aluminum metal screen doors are less-conductive of freezing and burning temperatures. Often, the handle of metal screen doors is aluminum or vinyl and therefore not hot to the touch.

What is a metal screen security door?

Metal screen security doors are made of steel. The screen portion is meant to be both visually appealing and small enough to prevent intruders from fitting between the lengths of metal within the design. For example, a filigree design, a cross pattern, or narrowly spaced parallel rods. Metal screen security doors can be designed in a two-door set to cover a normal sliding glass door, such as for patio access. Installing this type of double-wide metal screen security door is a two-person job.

How To Install A Sliding Screen Door Track

If there’s a sliding door in your house, the doors operate via a track that enables them the ability to glide across the door. Tracks are found at the top, bottom, and sometimes at the side of the door frame. The tracks enable the doors to bypass each other for easy entry and exist. Bottom rollers carry the doors, with two channels on the top track that allows the doors to pass one another. Nylon top guides hold each of the doors in place, helping distribute the weight of the doors over the entire bottom panel track.

The tracks on the sliding door are well-built, designed to provide many years of worry-free years. However, there are problems that can cause the track to malfunction or otherwise work improperly, requiring a replacement in order to use the door again.

Broken tracks won’t open or close at all. Many of the tracks featured on sliding doors are constructed from PVC plastic materials that damage and become brittle over time, causing the breakage. Damaged tracks cause nuisance when using them and tracks that have simply succumbed to age and wear and tear are just as much of a headache.

Installation of a sliding screen door track may also be necessary if you’re installing new French doors or if the sliding glass door you’ve purchased for the home is without the tracks pre-installed. Although uncommon, some doors are sold without the tracks, but this isn’t a big concern since you can easily add the track.

Although a variety of reasons exist for the need to replace the track, it’s a simple DIY job in each case. The information below teaches you how to install a sliding screen door track using only a few tools you likely already have sitting around the house. It isn’t a time-consuming job, so finding the time to complete the job isn’t of concern.

In some situations you may be able to clean the tracks and avoid replacement, but this is only a short-term solution and the tracks will eventually need replacing. Before replacing the door tracks, use a sponge or cloth and a multi-purpose cleaner to remove dirt, grime, and other debris that’s accumulated on both the rollers and the screen door track itself.

Once this is complete, use a vacuum cleaner attachment hose to remove any remaining dirt from the track. Hopefully this resolves the problem and your work is done. If it does not resolve the issue, or if your door track is damaged or improperly working, use the following step-by-step instructions and learn how to install a sliding screen door track.

How To Measure For A Screen Door

Knowing how to correctly measure for a new storm door can be very valuable and will make the replacement process far simpler. It is a short and easy process, and it may seem easy and intuitive. However, before choosing and purchasing a new screen door, you want to make sure your measurements are as precise as possible so you have a tight fit and do not have to do any extra work. You should also take time to consider a few other elements before ordering your door. To ensure your measurements for your new storm door are correct, just take a few minutes and follow the steps below.

How To Build A Wooden Screen Door

If you are a fan of fresh air and a view, then a screen door could be the perfect edition to your exterior door. You could very easily purchase a screen door already assembled, but if you want to ensure that your door is personalized to your needs or if you just have the wood just lying around, there is no reason you can’t build your own door. Plus, if anyone asks about the door, the fact that you built it is a great conversation starter.

Screen Doors For French Doors

French doors are a great way to make both the exterior and interior of your home feel brighter and more sophisticated. They are timeless, but they don’t offer much protection to homes that might be located in warmer climates with insects that just want to get in and bite you. If a homeowner wants to open French doors to air out the home, there is nothing to keep leaves and bugs from coming into the home, unless the homeowner chooses to install screen doors. Just imagine how nice it will be to get up in the morning when you know it will be warm and sunny and throw open the doors but not have to worry about your pet or child getting out. Screen doors come in a variety of styles to fit many different types of homes and many other options, like materials, depending on the particular ones currently on your home. Consider the hardware used on your home now and look closely at its design. As you look at your options, you’ll find a variety of colors for the screen material as well as for the framing which can match your existing colors. read more
