Self-Installation Has Advantages Beyond Cost Savings
You know how it works and can easily troubleshoot wind issues. You have more control!
It is about a 4 out of 10 for DIY skills (mostly because of a ladder). Folks take pride in their own accomplishment. You will too.
Other systems use hardware that make it so complicated to remove the panels, so no one removes them and they don’t LAST!
Most competitors charge a hefty fee to remove and re-hang their complicated design. We don’t see the value to you for that service.
Initial installation for a 40ft wide enclosure in about 4-6 hours.
Can you handle a drill, a ladder, an install video, and perhaps a glass of wine?
Removal, cleaning & storage after pollen season takes about an hour for same 40ft application.
Rehanging them in the fall takes about an hour.
Not into self-installation? Any handyman can handle this for you.
Simple Components & Usability
One of our biggest focal points is the ease of installation and usability of your curtain. For simple installation, we use a series of versatile components like L screws and marine snaps to allow you to attach to different surfaces. Our zipper doorways allow you easy entry and exit between panels and at the edge of panels. The marine Snap Video is under 90 seconds. Watch it and you will understand most of what you need to know about how your curtains will operate.

DIY Plastic Enclosures
If the system design is simple enough DIY Plastic Enclosures are a great way to save cost. Do you really need or want someone to come out for estimates and installation that you will pay for? Seasonally, you will be removing and hanging these plastic enclosures anyways unless you want to pay more annual fees. Unless your project is such that it could be dangerous, take pride in the fact that this is could be your accomplishment with modest skills and consider doing it yourself!
“Thank you for the follow-up email about the snap tool. I should have taken a picture during the winter. We had one of the worst winters on record in Maryland. We were able to use our porch all winter long because of the protection and insulation the vinyl Mosquito Curtains provide. This last month as spring arrived, our porch temperature has been warmer than our actual house temperature. A fantastic product!”

“Kurt, Here is a night shot of the curtains you sent to us last week. Covering the entire courtyard opening had the effect that I wanted and made it a cozy area for guests at dinner. If you remember, we had originally only covered the side openings. Hope you like the look as well. We are once again very happy, satisfied customers of Mosquito Curtains.”

“Hi, We just installed our curtains on a section of our porch and are very pleased. We are now considering installing curtains on the adjoining section. Installation went well, we were very pleased. Thanks for all of your help, Kurt, and for a great product! We have used our porch more in the past week than we did all last summer. Love it!”

“We love the curtains. Everyone was sooo helpful and installing was trouble-free. They are so durable that I’ll bet they will last many years.”
“Could not be happier! What a great product. Top quality materials, superior customer service and simple homeowner installation.”
“I have just come in from our bug free carport to thank you again for the Mosquito Curtain.”
“Thank you for a great product. We have been able to re-claim our porch in the evenings. Your customer service is second to none!”
