Bringing the Outdoors In

Outdoor living has become the norm in today’s home design.  Seamlessly blending outdoor and indoor spaces allows homeowners to maximize time spent in the fresh, outdoor air while still enjoying the conveniences their home has to offer.  Outdoor kitchens, pool-side patios and decks become much more versatile and practical spaces when they can be utilized well into the evening hours without worry about insects ruining the ambiance.

Enjoy the outdoors

Phantom Screens provides homeowners with an ideal way to extend living space to the outdoors.  Executive Motorized Retractable Screens provide insect protection and solar shading without blocking views.  Designed to prevent insects from entering indoor and outdoor living spaces, they provide shade from the direct glare of sunlight while allowing enhanced privacy.  These motorized screen solutions appear at the touch of a button — and retract out of sight when not needed.

Both beauty and ease of use

Stouffville resident Maggie Pittaway has found that Executive Screens add tremendous enjoyment and usability to her backyard.  “We often spend warm evenings with friends in the community socializing,” explains Pittaway.  “When it starts to get dark – regardless of what home we started at – the group always ends up moving over to our enclosed porch room. This way we can still enjoy being outdoors, but are not bothered by bugs.”


Additionally, these screens are so easy to use, and don’t need to be removed or put into storage like traditional screening materials.  “It’s a treat that we don’t have to worry about what to do with our screens for the winter,” remarked Pittaway. “I’ve found taking care of our screens to be almost effortless.”

Completely customizable

Phantom’s Executive Screens can be installed on new construction, be included in any renovation or be retrofit to an existing home.  There’s a full palate of colour options, including wood grain finishes, for a seamless appearance.  The screens come in a wide variety of insect and solar mesh options that address the varied needs of ventilation, shade and solar protection.


Customized to each building project, Executive Screens merge perfectly with a home’s décor to maintain the integrity of design.  Learn how to get more enjoyment from your outdoor living spaces at
