Mike and Carrie are ready to enjoy ultimate home comfort with their new screens. Their furry-filled abode is now equipped on their covered and uncovered patio spaces.

For their enclosed, covered patio, they now have:

  • Two Phantom motorized retractable screens
  • Two Phantom oversized retractable door screens

For access to their uncovered patio space, Mike and Carrie now have:

  • One set of Phantom retractable door screens with captured edge option for easy access on the double doors from the patio to the dining room
  • One single Phantom retractable door screen with captured edge option for access from the patio to the kitchen
  • One set of Phantom retractable door screens with captured edge option on the double doors leading into the living room

It all starts with your outdoor space

A perfect fit for you and your home. Your screen will be custom-built to order so you can stop swatting bugs and start enjoying the perks of inside in the great outdoors.

From porches to patios to poolside lanais, we’re not afraid to screen your space no matter the size. Fully customizable for any outdoor oasis, from bug protection to shade from the sun, we got you screened and covered. From hand-held remotes to wall switches to sun & wind sensors and even your smart device, you’ll never break a sweat with a motorized screen.

We’re here to help you customize your screen to suit your style and home. Choose from one of our nine ready-to-order standard colors or our wood grain options. Still can’t find your perfect match? No problem, we also offer custom color options to perfectly match your space.

Your screen’s material gives you a surprising amount of control over what comes in and out of your space. Choose a tighter or looser mesh—or even vinyl or blackout fabric—for your ideal combination of air, light, heat, and bugs.

Phantom has partnered with Somfy® to provide a wide range of remote controls and sensor options. Our motorized screens can be integrated into most home automation systems, including Lutron®, Crestron®, and smartphone devices. From hand-held remotes to wall switches to sun & wind sensors, you’ll never break a sweat with a motorized screen. Choose whichever control option is easiest for you.

When you get your new screens installed, you’ll hardly notice the installation process. We stand proudly behind our stance on “never DIY, always WDIFY” (we do it for you). Besides, we know what we’re doing, we’ve had over 30 years to work out all the bugs (literally). Backed by our industry-leading limited lifetime warranty, having fresh air installed is easy-breeze-y.

Mike Weaver and Carrie Rowan couldn’t enjoy the convenience of motorized screens without Phantom Screens’ integration with Somfy. Now they can adjust their outdoor space with ease and take the concept of a smart home to a new level.

 

Mike and Carrie made their outdoor dreams come true with the help of their local Phantom Screens authorized distributor. Ontario Screen Systems Inc., their local Phantom Screens expert for the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, helped Mike and Carrie pick the right products that would help solve their patio problems.
