SPF Screens & Awnings has the solution for your home, and we are ready to assist you throughout the entire process. Contact us today to get started!

Features of a Motorized Retractable Screen

We understand the need for people to have a shaded outdoor environment that offers a barrier between the sun’s harmful UV rays and your patio, porch, deck, or lanai. At SPF, we have designed our recessed retractable screens to give your outdoor living space a protected and stylish environment you can enjoy for years to come.

It does not get any easier than simply pushing a button, and the recessed mesh screen will release from the housing. You can choose how far down the retractable motorized screen will go for a customized look.

Benefits of a Retracting Recessed Screen

The first time you experience the perks of a retractable recessed screen, you will wonder why you waited so long to get one. Your home and patio will benefit from instant curb appeal and boost in value future potential buyers will appreciate.

Offers Privacy

Depending on the location of your home, you may have frequent pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Thanks to the instant seclusion a motorized recessed privacy screen offers, retreat to your porch or patio more often.

Blocks Sun

A retracting solar screen blocks 97% of the sun’s UV rays, further protecting you and your family from the harmful effects of prolonged sun exposure. Sun glare can be pretty bothersome as it reflects off shiny objects making it challenging to see correctly. The hot sun and annoying glare are significantly reduced with a motorized recessed mesh screen.

Keeps Patio Dry

Don’t let a light rain ruin your relaxing afternoon on the deck! Simply retract the motorized recessed screen to provide a barrier between you and the elements. There will be no need to worry about the patio furniture and decor; the retracting screen will keep those dry as well.

Bugs Stay Out

Pesky mosquitos and annoying insects will chase you inside and ruin your relaxing time on the patio or lanai. Allow SPF to solve this issue with a retractable recessed screen to keep out the insects.
