If you have a pet, you may be hesitant to add screens to your porch, patio, or windows because you worry about your pet’s nails damaging them. While it’s true pets (especially cats) have been known to damage screens, our team at Simply Screens can offer a solution that will prevent this problem.
Our pet screens are designed to be extra strong and durable to prevent your pets from damaging them or from successfully tearing through them. In this article, our team will go over a few things you need to know about our pet screens to help you decide if they are right for you.
- Material – Our pet screens are made of a PVC-coated yarn, while standard screens are made of fine aluminum, fiberglass, or plastic wires. The coated yarn gives our pet screens nearly seven times the strength of a standard screen, which makes it ideal for pet owners with rambunctious animal companions.
- Longevity – Another thing we want you to know about our pet screens is that, because of the material they’re made of, they are better able to hold up to the sun and the other elements. In other words, they will remain in better long-term condition than other screens and will last longer as well.
- Customization – Lastly, you should know that we can customize your pet screens with things like pet doors if you so wish. If your pet is on the independent side and you feel safe letting them come and go as they please, we encourage you to talk to us about installing a pet door in your larger screen door.
