Great solution for my patio screening!

Posted by chengeng on

I had a custom-built pergola installed a few years back but decided I wanted screening around it so I could enjoy the evenings without the bugs. I first tried some of those garage door screens. But they didn't fit that well and, after a couple of hurricane seasons living about 150 miles inland from the North Carolina coast, some of the hooks were sheared off and the screening began to have tears in it. I found these custom-sized screens when I went looking for a new option, and so far they are great. They were so easy to install (much easier than the garage door screens). And the adhesive tape was much better as well. The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because the magnetic closures aren't strong enough to keep the screening closed, even in gentle breezes, and the Velcro tabs are too small to be effective. I found a workable solution to that by purchasing shoelaces and installing one each about 18" above and below the center Velcro tab on each screen (see picture). A $12 solution in all. This keeps the screening pretty well closed even during stronger winds. As far as durability, I can't rate that yet because I've only had these for a few months. Overall, I'm very happy with these so far.
