A patio screen door doesn’t just look nice; it is a nice convenience to have. It is one of those perks that most homeowners can live without, but choose not to. If you have never had a patio screen door and don’t understand why people love them, here are 4 reasons you need one.
One: A Patio Screen Door is Easier to Open and Shut
Because you spend so much more time outside during the warmer months, you are probably going in and out of your patio door more often. Meaning that you are putting more wear and tear on your patio door from all the times you are opening and closing it. A patio screen door on the other hand is designed to be opened over and over again and not create as much wear and tear on the door and frame.
Also, because a patio screen door is much easier to open and close; and weighs less, you will have an easier time opening a patio screen door to carry items in and out of your house.
Two: A Patio Screen Door is Visible
How many times have you watched someone run directly into a glass patio door or have even done so yourself? As odd as it sounds, a patio screen door can provide you some protection from doing this. Because a patio screen door is not clear, you are going to see it before you run in to it; saving you from a lot of bumps on the heads and bloody noses.
Three: A Patio Screen Door Keeps the Pets In
Keeping the bugs out with a patio screen door is not the only thing that it can help you contain. Patio screen doors also allow you to have fresh air coming in your home without having to worry about your pets running out an open door. The same goes with having strange animals from the outside wandering in your home when you aren’t watching the door.
Finding a stray rodent or even a raccoon in your kitchen, compliments of an open doorway, is not exactly a pleasant summer surprise.
Four: A Better Cross Breeze from a Patio Screen Door
Having a screen door at both your front door and back door will not only allow you to have fresh air coming in to both sections of your home, it will also allow for a refreshing cross breeze when both doors are open at the same time. A cross breeze will quickly cool your home when it is warm as it allows the cooler outside air to flow through your home.
Without a patio screen door, to create a cross breeze from the front to the back of your home, you would have to leave to doors wide open and unprotected.
