Autumn brings the beauty of falling leaves in an earthy collection of colours, but it also brings wasps, hornets, mosquitoes and ladybugs. Did you know that autumn is the perfect time of year to keep flying pests out of your home with retractable screens? Stephen Attfield, General Manager, of Phantom Screens spoke to eieihome about the benefits of a professional installed retractable screen.
Enjoy fresh fall breezes
Phantom Screens are a beautiful alternative to old-fashioned, framed screens. Phantom’s screens retract out of sight when not in use, allowing the versatility of a screen that is there only when needed. Available for virtually any opening – in-swing doors, out-swing doors, sliding glass doors, windows and large openings such as patios or decks, Phantom Screens come in a variety of colours to match virtually any décor.
Cross-ventilation by screening multiple openings in the same room is one of the best ways to keep your home fresh and comfortable during the fall. With environmental concerns at the forefront for so many homeowners these days, retractable screens are a simple way to control the temperature in your home while contributing to a greener planet.
Invite in sunlight
Conventional framed screens tend to compromise the beauty of a home, block the views, diminish natural daylight and make routine window cleaning difficult. Since traditional screens remain in place regardless of whether they are in use, they block up to 30% of daylight coming into your home.
Phantom Screens are the ideal way to maximize the hours of available daylight and enjoy the crisp, fresh fall air. Phantom Screens is celebrating 20 years in Ontario this year, and distributors Ontario Screen Systems Inc. are thrilled to achieve this milestone.
Unmatched screening expertise
“Our 20th anniversary gives us the opportunity to look back at the incredible growth our fantastic staff have helped us to achieve” Attfield tells eieihome. “We’re very proud to have installed over 90,000 Phantom Screens in Ontario in the last twenty years, with so many more to come!”
To this day, the company’s original Mississauga address still houses the Ontario operation, from which their professionally trained design consultants and installers are based. With over 120 years of combined experience specifying and installing retractable screens for clients’ homes, the Ontario Screen Systems team brings fresh air and ventilation into homes throughout Ontario.
High quality, professional service
Phantom’s professional installation is the ideal way to ensure that design and size requirements are met and that the screens are properly installed for longevity of the parts, finishes and mesh.
Attfield sums up the company’s successful two decades this way: “When we began in 1994, we wanted to help people to gain even more enjoyment from their homes. We were willing to work hard to achieve that; to provide the best product and superior service.”
“To me, hearing customers tell us how much more they love their living spaces because of our screens – that in itself is our reward.”
