We emphasize that the product is easy to self install; however, if you are not so inclined, any handyman can easily handle the installation. This product was designed to enable a novice to create a screen porch enclosure.
Curtains are installed with minimal home improvement skills. Can you stand on a ladder and hold a drill? If the answer is yes, you're in business. Most describe it as a fun little half day project. Initial Curtain installation is about 1 hour per 12 feet of curtain for tracking attachment and about 1 hour per 20ft for Velcro™ tape attachment. Subsequent reattachments take about 20 minutes per 20ft of curtain. For tracking attachment, you will need a ladder, a drill, a metal file, a hacksaw and a hammer. For Velcro Velcro™ tape attachment, a ladder, a drill, a staple gun, [...]
Typically this is only relevant when a curtain panel turns a corner. Velcro attachment generally uses an outside hang (a path around the OUTSIDE of support columns) while tracking attachment generally uses an inside hang.
Keep this theme in mind. Your curtains need to be wider than your actual exposure so that you can seal the sides. In addition, we are working with textiles so there is a bit of variance in what you will receive (usually plus or minus 1" per 10ft of width). The heights, we generally get spot on. Width Adjustment: We recommend adding 3" per panel + 1" per 10ft of width. Height Adjustment: No adjustment for tracking / 2" taller than your exposed opening for Velcro Attachment.
Yes. There is value helping clients plan and install mosquito netting curtains. You may direct prospective clients to www.outdoorcurtain.com which has only our photo gallery and no company information or pricing. We have discovered from repetitive orders that several individuals around the world are active resellers. They simply purchase from us and resell at a higher price for their planning and installation services. Anyone can do it without ever letting us know. If you resell more than 4 curtains, we can discuss a modest price concession and ways to purchase some items in bulk.
Curtains like to be washed at least once a year to remove any dirt. Washing your curtains will extend the life of your curtains. A great time to do so is when the bug season is over. Most folks give them a good rinsing with a hose while they are hanging. For a deeper clean, soak them in the bath tub with a light detergent and line dry. Do not put them in a dryer.
Orders with tracking come in 2 boxes that typically arrive same day. Every now and then, the boxes to arrive on different days.
No. We have adjusted the hole count on the Heavy Mesh to 230 holes per square inch to make the Heavy Mesh appear identical to the Standard Mesh at 270 holes per inch. You can feel a difference but there is absolutely no noticeable difference in either visibility or air flow.
I'm sorry, but we protect the privacy of our clients. Would you want some stranger coming over to your house? I wouldn't send a stranger to a client's house without a full background check (both ways). Unfortunately, it's the world we live in and I would rather miss a sale than have some unforeseen event occur. We don't ever share ANY client information. If you would like a sample package of the netting, please email us with your address. We are an internet business and do not have physical stores. This keeps our prices low. We can appreciate that it may [...]
While we have a patent on our methods, there should be no one that does what we do the way we do it. WE ARE THE SOURCE FOR CORRECT ANSWERS, which is why we have no problem sharing what the competition does. There are some beautiful porch screening systems out there that we've seen at trade shows. Try "Phantom Screens", "Easy" or "Reel Screen", "Mirage Screens" for some nifty systems that will even work by remote control. It's expensive, but pretty impressive. "Kittymac" makes garage screens in pre-packaged sizes, but we have not seen their product first hand and it is [...]
