A Guide to Retractable Screen Installation – Simple, Quick and Efficient

With Craft-Bilt retractable pleated screens, you can enjoy the outdoors like never before. Our products are an ideal solution for homeowners looking for convenient, cost effective, and low maintenance retractable screening options. We are proud to offer retractable screen systems that follow a simple installation process, allowing you to make use of and enjoy your new screened-in porch or patio immediately.

Steps for Installing Your New Screen System

Installation is a breeze with our retractable pleated screens. Due to its low profile, your screen can be installed virtually anywhere including openings that may not be perfectly square or levelled. Before you begin, make sure you have all the required tools and materials and read the instructions carefully. By following a few easy steps, you can begin using your retractable screen in no time:

  1. Clear the Area – Once you have established the area where you would like to install your retractable screen, ensure that the opening is level and clean. However, Craft-Bilt pleated screens are extremely forgiving and do not necessarily require a level opening. For instance, along the run of your opening, our screens will allow a rise of ½ an inch or a drop of ¼ inch.
  1. Installation Process – We take pride in how easy and effective our pleated screen installation can be for you. After laying out all your parts, begin by fastening your top track, followed by fastening your jamb and base-jamb to the sides of the opening, and finally lay down the ultra low sill that features convenient two-sided tape. Once these parts are correctly installed, it is time to insert the screen cartridge. Using a piece of wood to spread the top track, line up the pull-bar retainer and insert. Remove the wood and align the bottom of the screen cartridge to the bottom sill until it snaps into place.
  1. Ensure Smooth Operation – After the installation process is complete, make sure your pleated screen runs smoothly by extending and retracting it. If you find that the pull-bar does not completely close to the jamb, your screen does not fully retract, or the system is not operating smoothly, refer to our trouble-shooting guide.

The Benefits of Retractable Pleated Screens for Your Home in Canada

Retractable pleated screens are not only extremely practical, but they can also transform the overall aesthetic of your home. They require very little maintenance and also provide several other benefits that are sure to increase property value. As opposed to traditional roll screens, these are extremely convenient. At the touch of your hand, you are seconds away from enjoying natural ventilation and a great view while keeping those pesky bugs at bay.

4 Reasons Why You Should Install a Retractable Screen 

We understand how much time and effort can go into the look and feel of your home. Here are a few benefits that these screens will provide for many years to come:

  1. Keep Bugs and Pests Away – One of the best advantages of a screen for your door or other large opening is its ability to keep bugs and larger pests out of your home. Bugs are not only an annoyance but they can carry and transmit serious diseases to humans. Even the smallest insects can take away from your enjoyment of a nice breeze and view. Therefore, installing a retractable screen is the best way to connect you to the outdoors without having to deal with bugs.
  2. Perfect Economical Alternative – These doors are the perfect economical alternative to roll up screens, especially if they feature motorized parts. As opposed to waiting for a roll up screen to fully raise or lower, you can come and go by leaving a small opening in your pleated screens. In addition, our screens are made from only the highest quality, yet affordable materials.
  3. Enjoy Unobstructed Views – If you chose your current home based on the views, you want to enjoy them as they were meant to be seen. Our pleated screens allow you to see through very well. The retractable feature requires very little effort to operate so when the bugs are gone you can instantly open them to maximize the view.
  4. Upgrade Spaces – Instantly upgrade your existing patio cover and turn it into a screen room. Our screens are extremely easy to install and can even fit between uneven openings and surfaces. This product can also add another level of privacy, provide natural ventilation, and increase your comfort around the home.
  5. Enjoy the sounds of summer – Close your screens and open your doors. Now you can enjoy the sounds of birds or children playing right from your porch or kitchen.
