When it comes to something as valuable as your retractable screen door, you have to take precautions to make sure that they can last a lifetime. How can you make sure that your doors can last for their lifespan?
These four tips can help extend the life of your doors.
Always Retract Your Screen Door If Not In Use
If you are not using your retractable screen door, then why is it out? One of the best ways to ensure that it lasts longer and without problems is to put it away if you are not using it. Make sure that it is always retracted and tucked away when it is not in use, so it does not collect debris, be exposed to the harsh conditions, and get damaged when out too long.
Clean the doors and the tracks
To make sure that the quality of your doors maintain their longevity, it is important to always clean it. A build-up of dirt, dust and grime can ruin the integrity and strength of your doors, so taking the time out to clean it can make a massive difference to its lifespan. And when we mean cleaning it, we are referring to both the tracks of your doors and the screen. Mirage retractable screen doors are usually made with materials that stand up well against the elements, but if they are not maintained over time, their quality might wear down. You must look to clean it regularly. You can check out our blog post here about ‘How to Clean Your Retractable Screen Door’ for a step-by-step guide.
Keep your tracks clear of debris
The tracks of your retractable screen door are vital for its functionality. So when it comes to keeping your door functioning at its best, you have to take the time out to make sure that the tracks are cleared. You should always be looking at your tracks and clearing out any debris that has piled up over time. If not, the quality and functionality of your door will suffer, as well as the chances of damage increasing.
Avoid blunt force
One of the fastest ways that a screen door can be damaged is by the use of excessive force. And this can happen at any time, from a kid running into the door, to people closing it harder than expected. Now, while the quality of the doors are undisputed, in most cases, they will hold firm for a long-time. But if you can avoid blunt and excessive force, then you’ll keep your door lasting longer than ever!

Kelli installed my screens two years ago. I was extremely impressed then with her and her skills. I have enjoyed using them since then. This past summer a particularly windy day skewed my screen so it just didnt retract properly. I ran into Kelli at the Fall Home Show, asked her how I could fix it. She was here at my house within 24 hours and fixed it good as new. Wow a one of a kind customer service experience!!

Kelly was on time, explained all of the options, measured carefully, did all the prep work at her truck, installed the door quickly and efficiently, and did a perfect clean-up. Her price was as quoted. It was a pleasure to work with her and have her in our home. Would highly recommend.

Amazing service and quality. Kelli was prompt, professional, and fast! I have a door with a side light that doesn't match up totally with the opposing frame. Most screens from the big box hardware stores require that the side light side be built out to match the opposing door frame side. Not the case with the Mirage Screen. It looks and works great!

Kelli was fantastic as well as her co-worker Antonio. She was very professional and answered my emails right away and had my screen installed within days of my order on Costco.ca. She was very diligent about the quality of the install, and making sure it worked smoothly. She also explained my warranty, and how I could contact her if I needed any help at all. A total pleasure to do business with, and the screen door is fantastic!

I did my due diligence and decided to buy from the Screen Queen.Totally professional during the sales process and even more professional during the install. Kelli did a great job and we are very pleased with this product and the installation. Our expectations were exceeded which is a beautiful thing!! Thanks Kelli!

I had a great experience with Kelli, she is super professional, knowledgeable, and knows what she’s doing! I had a door installed on my condo balcony a few years ago and it’s still in perfect working order. Highly recommend!

Kudos to the Screen Queen (Kelli) - Mirage.I highly recommend her for her professionalism, reliability and excellent customer service. I was a previous Wizard Screens customer and was unimpressed with the service.
