While retractable screens are indeed more expensive than ordinary fly screens, the fruits of your investment will be reaped for years to come. During the warmer months, when the greatest amount of bugs crawl our homes, you can draw the screens shut and enjoy the heat while keeping flies out. In the cooler months however, you may choose to keep hideaway your retractable screens and enjoy uninterrupted views of your garden, a luxury that fixed screens cannot provide.
