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 flying and crawling insects invade our homes, draw the screens shut and enjoy the summer weather. In the cooler months your retractable screens can be hidden away, allowing you to enjoy uninterrupted views. This is a luxury fixed screens cannot easily provide.
Retractable insect screens can range from small windows to larger bifold doors to expansive alfresco patio enclosures. Prices will increase depending the size of the area where the screen is installed. Retractable window screens range from approximately $230 – 600, while doors start at $650 and increase depending on size, style of door it is being fitted against and the installation method. Expect to pay between $230 and $350 for retractable fly screens for windows. They can go up to around $600 for a large window.
As a general price guide of retractable fly screens for bifold doors, you should be looking at is $1,200 to $3,000, and for a French opening double door, $850 to $1200.
