You take pride in your pool and yard and want to do everything possible to protect it from the elements. A motorized pool screen can protect you from bugs, debris, and UV radiation. In this post, we'll discuss the benefits of having a retractable pool screen and provide tips on choosing the right one.
What Are Motorized Pool Screens and What Do They Do?
With a motorized screen for your pool, you can transform any outdoor space into your summer relaxation spot. A retracting pool screen protects from the hot sun and offers instant privacy.
Simply press one button and enjoy beautiful screens that can roll down at various heights for maximum comfort.
Why Pool Screens Are Beneficial
Like most homeowners, you probably haven't thought about all the positives of a retractable screen for your pool. There are many benefits beyond the sun being blocked and bugs staying out. Believe it or not, a motorized pool screen has many features you may not have considered. Keep reading to learn more!
When you desire seclusion from the outside world, a retractable screen for the pool gives you the privacy you crave. Enjoying your private oasis is a luxury that can be yours with this beautiful addition to your pool area. A retractable screen can make it happen whether you want to lounge in peace, or entertain close friends.
Keeps Patio Cool
Motorized pool screens are a great way to keep your lanai cooler in the hot sun. They block 97% of the sun's heat, making it more comfortable to enjoy your outdoor space.
Furniture is Protected
The sun's harmful UV rays will quickly fade your patio furniture and decor. A simple way to protect them from the damage is by using a rolling shade pool screen that blocks out all those damaging ultraviolet waves, giving you plenty more years of use!
Mosquitos Stay Out
Not all homes have cages around their pools. For poolside patios or lanais open to the elements and nature, insects can cause a nuisance. A motorized pool screen will help protect against annoying bugs and pests so you can enjoy the outdoors comfortably.
Curb Appeal Boost
With the addition of a motorized retractable screen for your backyard oasis, your home will stand out from the rest on the market. The beautiful, sleek design and functionality give your backyard instant curb appeal.
Value-Added Features Included with My Motorized Pool Screen Purchase
A retracting screen for your pool will provide you with additional living space to relax and entertain with family and friends. Customizable options give your patio a finished and stylish upgrade with features you will surely appreciate.
Simple to Operate
When you're ready for some protection and privacy, press a button, and the remote-controlled retractable screen will release from the protective housing. No need to get up from your seat because the quiet yet powerful motor does all the work.
You can find various mesh options that will allow you to create the perfect design to complement your style and blend beautifully with the exterior color of your home. Choose the opacity (openness of the screen) depending on what's best suited to how much privacy you desire.
The aluminum hood houses the mesh pool screen when it's not in use and matches the color of your exterior wall, so you can enjoy an out-of-the-way look without sacrificing style.
Consider These Points Before Finalizing Your Purchase of a
Retractable Pool Privacy Screen
Aside from the obvious points, we encourage you to consider these additional points to ensure complete satisfaction with your final purchase.
The weather can go back and forth from sunny to rainy, sometimes multiple times a day. When you are prepared for the elements to change, you can still enjoy your pool and scenic views.
Where You Need Shade
Using Multiple Screens
You will likely want to use more than one retractable screen for your poolside patio. Multiple motorized screens will offer maximum protection for you and your family.
Manual Pool Screen vs Retracting Motorized Pool Shade
When deciding between a manual pool screen and a motorized retracting shade for your pool, it is essential to remember that it all comes down to personal preference. However, we encourage you to consider an electric option as it will provide shade and comfort in a matter of minutes from the comfort of your seat with the remote-controlled operation. A manual screen requires you to stand up and physically move the shade up or down; typically, these screens will not last as long as a motorized option.
How To Clean the Motorized Retractable Screen for My Pool
Cleaning and maintaining your retracting pool screen is simple, and to keep your investment looking new, we recommend going through the below steps a few times a year.
Use a soft-bristled broom, such as a kitchen one, to remove loose dirt, debris, and dead bugs collected on the rolling mesh screen.
Wash with Soap
Fill a bucket with warm water and mild soap and use a soft cloth to remove any stuck dirt and dust gently.
For hard-to-remove blemishes, try an organic stain remover. Wet the spot, spray, and blot with a damp cloth.
Use a garden hose to rinse the soapy screen. We do not recommend using a power washer because the pressure can cause damage to the material.
