Retractable Screens Provide A Practical Solution For Porches

One of the most common uses for screens is to provide a bug-free solution for a porch. Unfortunately, conventional screens, the wire mesh type you buy in a roll from the hardware store, are limited when it comes to keeping out the bugs, and the sunlight, for that matter. The traditional wire mesh screens don’t provided any type of glare protection and quite often stretch and tear, leaving you to deal with pesky mosquitoes and the like.

Fortunately, there’s a practical solution to keeping the bugs out that doesn’t require constant maintenance and frequent replacement. They’re called retractable screens, and they are to screen porches what smart phones are to telephones. They’re a technological breakthrough to outdated and cumbersome screens of yesteryear.

Like conventional screens, retractable screens can enclose an outdoor living space. But that’s where the comparison ends.

Retractable screens are much more durable than the old screens. They last longer because they can be drawn into a canister and out of the elements when not in use. This is true whether you live in Atlanta, or Alberta, Canada.

Moreover, they offer added benefits to the homeowner besides just keeping out the bugs. Retractable screens can cut down on the glare of the sun when it is low on the horizon, and also decrease energy costs by reducing the heat of the sun and subsequent heat that would otherwise penetrate the indoors and keep your air conditioner running on high.

Retractable screens run on rails and can be either manually or automatically drawn up and down– or sideways, for that matter. A magnetic strip where the screens draw closed ensures no bugs of the flying or creepy crawly type enter your living space.

To fit a typical porch with retractable screens you will need to have wide, custom built screens installed in the large openings that surround your porch. These will be screens that open and close vertically. A retractable screen that opens horizontally, much like a patio door, can be installed in the narrower door opening. Both types of screens can be opened with a remote control unit.

Retractable screens are a significant investment that can increase the value of your home. As such, they should be installed by licensed or certified installers. Expect about three to four weeks from the time of ordering to have the screens and hardware delivered to you or the installer.

Retractable screens will offer you the chance to utilize your porch for the things you like to do on your porch when you feel so inclined, unhindered by bugs and the glare of the sun.

Sick, Sick and More Sick

You all know it’s not normal for me to not write for a few days. I wasn’t online anywhere since Tuesday because I had some form of a sickness overcome me. You see a few weeks ago I started getting so tired and sleepy that I could barely stay awake.

Then I went to the river with my friend, her kids and my kids on Tuesday, then back to her house. We had a good time for only a short period of time. I do recall waking up feeling like my throat was a bit sore but I just assumed that was from the night time air coming in through my air conditioner for that happens sometimes.

Then it hit me, Tuesday night, sick as a dog. My fever started at 100.7 and wouldn’t go away. Still today, I have a fever of about 100 degrees. Two nights ago I was at 103 all night long and couldn’t sleep more than half an hour at a time. I have not kept any food nor drink down in my system since Tuesday.

I decided, I have to go to the hospital. So I went, they did a urine test and came back saying “Good news, you don’t have a UTI and you are not pregnant” as if I would be preggers anyways …. so they got me ready for an IV because I was very very low on fluids. They drew blood, put a 1000ml of fluid IV drip on me and there I laid in the hospital.

They ran my blood work, they decided to take chest and abdomenal xrays, my first xrays of my life! Coming back from the xray area, the ER doc came in to tell me he thinks I will live, at least until December when the Mayan calendar ends. He was a funny doc, anyways, the blood, the xrays — everything showed normal status. It seems I have one nasty bug.

And it’s still with me, so my life is consisting of laying in bed, living on the toilet and taking baths to try to keep my temp down. Also trying to take care of kids, it’s a wonderful time. I Just hope that my kids do not get this, it’s the most awful sickness I have ever had. And nope, I still can’t keep any fluids nor food down :-(

BUT I do have work to do or else I make no money, so I will be periodically getting online in my office to get some work done so I can still pay bills. After all being sick means the house is a mess but it can’t mean I lose too much money.

Tropical Storm Weather Coming In From Hurricane Irene

Guess New England is getting hit by this Hurricane Irene, but by the time it reaches us it seems to be tropical storm type weather. I don’t know if I will have electricity or anything but I have glow sticks, one flash light and some candles ready. This blog post is being written late Saturday night, so far it appears we will have gusts of wind up to 40MPH but the forecast keeps changing as the hurricane moves up this way.

The yard has been all picked up and the dogs will come in. Hopefully it would be too hot during this storm, because if there is no power there is no air conditioners and man that would suck with the muggy weather we have been having these past couple of days.

I hope everyone stays safe and I hope the storm passes fast and safely through everyone’s states!
