In an age where it seems like every home remodel is ‘going green,’ retractable screens for porches are no exception. The representatives at Retractable Screens of Colorado want to take a moment and tell you all about how these days even screens are going green.

Eco-Friendly Porches Can Save You from Getting Scorched

The large cultural shift toward energy saving, eco-friendly products has meant that most manufactures have had to change the way they do business. Not here at Retractable Screens of Colorado; our retractable screens for porches have always been made the same way. We use the most abundant metal on earth: extruded aluminum. Not only is this metal endlessly recyclable and easy to replace, it’s also naturally energy-efficient.

Our aluminum mesh is 7 times more effective at cooling your home than blinds or interior curtains. This reduces your solar heat gain by up to 80%. Translation: with this simple cosmetic change to your porch door, you’ll reduce your heating and cooling bills because you’ll lower the amount of energy needed to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors.

A Marriage of Style, Functionality, & Efficiency

Use the retractable porch screens when you need them and simply raise them when you don’t. Who knew energy-efficiency could be so simple and so stylish at the same time?
