We had our retractable screen door installed two years ago, in the fall. We have now enjoyed it for 2 full years and can't believe how we lived without it. We live in a townhouse community. Many of our neighbours have lovely glass storm doors but they don't allow the air in. Others have the unattractive 1/2 glass, 1/2 screen doors. Ours is the best of both worlds; it allows both the light and the air to brighten up our large foyer. And it's invisible. Can't beat it for function and appearance.
