There are just so many reasons why people don’t go for mesh doors: 1) It does not seem to go so well with the entire theme that the home owner is trying to create, 2) Life span-wise, it does not last long, and, 3) it is not advisable for families living with small children and pets.
What’s good though is that sliding screen door is useful when it comes to keeping the amount of air and sunlight that comes in, and keeping pests and other bugs outside where they should be. Here are quick fixes for some problems you may think of, that can persuade you not to get a sliding screen door:
1) Choose a color and a design that matches your home design. If you’re afraid that a screen door will totally mess up your interior design masterpiece, then you’re looking at the wrong catalogue. There are different sizes, colors, style, and designs to choose from so your door clashing with everything that’s going on should be your last worry.
2) Long-lasting models are always available. There are sliding mesh doors that are made especially to be more durable than the others. These should be able to stand long tests of wears, weathering, flexibility, and pressure. Look around you and consider the people you live with and how your lifestyle goes, then buy the model that will suit your needs in a long-term basis. If you want something that can withstand forced entry, but screen doors with aluminum grill or high-grade stainless steel mesh.
3) Know when to buy one. Screen doors are most in demand during the hot summer months, but are available all year. Buy your screen door during the times when it’s not “needed” yet. As the law of demand goes, when a commodity is not needed or is sought after only by a chosen few, the price tends to drop.
Whether you’re looking for a sliding door to keep your family safe from outside forces such as bugs, too much sun or too much wind, or you’re simply looking for ways to cut costs by allowing natural air and sun to light up the room or buying inexpensive fixtures, high-quality, durability and versatility should always be your primary concerns. Functionality and quality must not be sacrificed for cheaper price, and aesthetic appeal should not suffer from loss of class. After all, your property and family does not come in cheap packaging.
