Frequently Asked Questions
Here you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about the Garage screen system.
What is the warranty on the Garage screen system?
There is a Limited Lifetime warranty covering the parts. Screen mesh is not included in the warranty. The manufacturer does not provide you with a warranty on labor, be sure to discuss this with your installer.
Does the Garage screen replace my existing garage door?
No. You will still use your garage door as you normally would. The Garage screen system works in conjunction with your existing garage door allowing you to quickly switch between your garage door and your Garage screen system. When in use, the Garage screen exchanges positions with your garage door.
Can you add a locking mechanism to the retractable door?
Yes, the retractable door can be fitted with a locking mechanism at an additional cost. Locking mechanisms are optional.
What sizes and colors are available?
Currently, we have 6' wide to 18' wide models and 7', 8', 9' and 10' tall*. The frame is currently available in white, brown and sandstone. * 9' and 10' models available up to 16' width only.
I have storage over my garage doors now. Can the Garage screen and my garage door go down so I can access it?
Yes, you will want to open your garage door, roll your Garage screen down until it touches the floor, leaving it "kicked back" from the jamb. Then simply disconnect your garage door from the opener with the safety disconnect cord and gently roll the garage door down until it rests on the Garage Screen frame.
How much clearance will I lose from my existing garage door opening when the Garage Screen is installed?
Typically, you will not lose more than 1.75" of clearance.
How much does the Garage screen system cost?
As the manufacturer, we do not quote prices. Please contact us
and we will put you in touch with a dealer in your area.
does this screen keep the heat in if it gets cold outside ?
Yes ... the screen does block some wind, therefore your garage could potentially be warmer when the temperature drops.
Can I install my Garage screen system myself?
Yes. Your local dealer is authorized to sell directly to consumers for self installation.
We recommend watching the installation videos first by visiting the Installation Video Page.
What is the upgraded screen mesh made of?
The upgraded Garage screen uses a mesh made of pvc coated polyester. The weave pattern is 17x20 and both the charcoal and white are good for customers looking for an extremely strong mesh. Only the white mesh functions as a privacy screen the charcoal does not. FYI, the standard mesh is made of fiberglass in an 18x14 weave pattern similar to that used in window screens.
Will the Garage Screen work on a low headroom garage door? ( double horizontal track system)
The Garage screen will not work on low headroom applications. Low headroom garage doors are typically found in basement garages. They are typically identified by two tracks on the horizontal. Your local dealer will verify this for you.
