Each screen has a pouch sewn into the bottom of the screen where you can insert PVC pipe or conduit, if the climate in your area is windy . Most of our customers do not need to use the pouch because our screens are designed to fit securely as is. However, if you live somewhere where winds are high, you may need to insert PVC or conduit.

How can I be assured of a good fit?
Our garage screens have been designed to fit all standard garage door openings . Please keep in mind that our screens are 2 inches wider and 1 inch taller than the posted sizes so that you have adequate mounting flexibility . To be assured of a good fit, hold your screen up to the area where you will be mounting it before you attach the self-adhesive hook to your garage door frame. You can position your screen where you think it fits the best and then apply the hook fastener to your frame.

What tools will I need?
NONE. No tools needed . We have designed our garage screen for simple installation. No long complicated instructions. It is easy as 1,2,3 GUARANTEED!

I am not sure if 16 x7 will fit my garage. My door opening is 15 ft 10 inch wide X 6 ft 11 inches tall?
No problem. Our screens were carefully designed to accommodate most standard door sizes. We designed our screens to be flexible enough to fit openings that may be a few inches shorter or narrower. You can easily adjust the screen to achieve the best fit by holding it up over the area to be screened around your door opening before attaching the hook fastener.

Is there any preparation needed before mounting my screen?
Absolutely and it is simple. Make sure the area you are going to mount your screen to is clean and has no flaking paint or dirt. You may want to wipe the area with alcohol to make sure it is clean so the self-adhesive hook can attain maximum adhesion.

Should we be concerned about the size we order if our door is a little shorter and not so wide?
No. All that is needed is 1 inch on the top and 1 inch on each side for mounting . Our screens have 1 inch of hook fastener double stitched across the top and on both sides.

If your opening is substantially shorter or narrower, you may have to add wood to you door framing, however, this is seldom needed.

How does the screen roll up?
Simply just start at the bottom and by hand simply roll the screen up just like you would roll up a window shade.

How do we secure our screen when rolled up?
Most of our customers do not roll their screens up unless they are going to move their car in and out which seldom happens because they are using their garage for a screen room and not to park the car. We do have straps for securing your screen or you can just use a piece of rope or an old pants belt. We no longer sew the straps onto the screen because our customers were cutting them off and requesting we do not attach them, because it does not look good having straps hanging down off the screen.

How do they hold up to the wind?
Wind will not damage your screen. The hook seal may loosen on the edges as the screen billows in high wind conditions.

How do you maintain and clean your screen?
Use a soft brush and soapy water to clean your screen. Also lubricate the zipper with Pledge periodically.
