As homeowners in New Zealand, we all know the frustration of pesky insects invading our homes, especially during the warm summer months. One solution to this problem is the use of retractable fly screens. These screens are designed to keep flies and other insects out while allowing fresh air and natural light in.
At our company, we often receive special requests for different types of doors that require fly or insect screening. In some cases, the architect considers a screen during the planning phase, which allows us to recess the door screen and tracks into the wall and joinery during the build. However, more frequently, the request comes after the building has been completed and homeowners realize that insect screens would enhance the functionality of their home.
While door screens are common, one of the less common requests we receive is for post-less corner doors. These are designed for outlook and airflow and can add a unique aesthetic to a home. However, installing screens on these types of doors can be a bit more challenging. In our experience, one of our senior installers may have to go back to the saw multiple times to ensure that each side of the screen is precisely measured in order to blend seamlessly with the architecture and maintain functionality.
If you’re wondering whether your door, window, or outdoor patio can be screened, please feel free to contact us. We would be more than happy to answer any questions and help you with your screening needs.
