What You Need To Know About Screens And Screen Repair Supplies
Choosing outdoor screens and screen repair supplies doesn’t have to be an overwhelming process. Whether it’s an outdoor mesh screen or a fiberglass screen, you want to be sure you have the right screen repair supplies on hand. And if you can’t have them on hand, knowing where to get them is essential to maintaining your outdoor screen. Continue reading for more information on types of screens and their common screen repair supplies.
Outdoor Mesh Screen
One of the most common and popular types of outdoor screen is an outdoor mesh screen. Mesh screen fabric can be used as a pool cage screen or a bug screen for a patio, among many other outdoor applications. Mesh screens are commonly made from aluminum and are moderately pliable. Mesh screens like the Super Screen™, however, are designed to last for years and are easy to install and work with for many contractors. Some other benefits of screens like the Super Screen™ include:
- Lasting durability
- UV protective features
- Pet and insect resistance
There are many other benefits beyond these, but being able to enjoy your time outside without being hassled by bugs is a prime feature.
Another common type of outdoor screen is a fiberglass screen. Fiberglass screens tend to have more visibility than aluminum screens, which are often dark and harder to see through. Fiberglass also doesn’t glare the way aluminum screens do, but it does stretch more than aluminum and it tears more easily than aluminum. Fiberglass comes in more colors compared with aluminum. If you want the benefits of fiberglass combined with the benefits of aluminum, an outdoor mesh screen like a Super Screen™ is a good call.

For every human on the planet, recent figures suggest there are more than 200 million insects. That’s trillions of insects on the planet just waiting to get into your pool area. Nothing puts a damper on a blissful pool day like having insects come through a hole in your screen and having to bust out the bug spray. Keep screen repair supplies on hand to avoid having to use sprays and insecticides that are harmful to the environment. A pro tip is to have some extra material on hand, aluminum or fiberglass, so you can repair the screen quickly without having to wait for the extra mesh screen fabric to arrive.
Don’t let insects prevent you from enjoying your time outdoors. Invest in an outdoor mesh screen, like a Super Screen™, to block out UV rays, prevent insects from biting you, and enjoy your time outdoors.
