Solar Window Screens -> Questions & Answers
Installation Q&A's

Question : If I have side-by-side windows (windows that are installed next to each other, fitted together), will you mount one solar screen over all of them, or will you build one solar screen for each window?

& Answer :  We will build and install a solar screen for each window.  Each window takes its own solar screen.  In rare cases of non-opening windows like when there is a rectangular non-opening window with a ½ circle window above it, we can build one large solar screen to fit over the two of them together.   Watch this video, as once you do, you will have a clear understanding of how we install our solar screens on side-by-side windows.  If you have multiple side by side windows that you want one big solar screen for, you WILL lose bug protection.  With one big screen, you will not be able to fit the screen framing flush around the windows, so you will get gapping, thus will lose bug protection.

& my Video Answer :  Here my explanation of why solar screens will install on each window, not over multiple windows.

Double windows, two windows means two solar screens.
Two half arched windows installed next to each other.
Group of three windows that took 3 solar screens.

Question : Can a Solar Screen be installed on a Door ? 

& Answer :  Absolutely!   Pictures A &  B)  For swing doors, we mount the solar screen within  the molding of the window frame.   Picture C)  For a flat installed rate of $150 (if accompanied with a solar window screen order for your house) we can custom build you an aluminum-framed sliding solar screen door out of either our 80% or 90% fabric.  We custom build our sliding solar screen doors specific to the measurements of your sliding door frame out of roll-formed Aluminum, not out of steel.  The steel framing which is widely used will rust unlike that of the sturdy and heavy-duty aluminum framing that we use. Our cost to build doors out of this heavier duty aluminum framing is more, but it is worth it (aluminum will not rust).  The framing we use is unlike anything you can buy off the shelf, it's very sturdy and heavy-duty.  And, we of course can roll any of our six colors of fabrics within the frame.  Optionally, if you would like to cover the non-opening portion of the door, we can build you a pocket (as shown in picture c).  The pocket we will mount to the outside of your sliding door frame covering the non-opening panel.  The solar screen door when in the open position will slide behind this pocket.  The installed cost for the pocket is a flat rate of $150 as well.  For the sliding screen door and the pocket both made out of the same heavy duty frame, rolled with either our 80% or 90% solar screen fabric, when accompanied with a 613" or over solar window screen order, is a minimal flat installed cost of $300 regardless of the sizes.    If you do not have a need for solar window screens, and only want the sliding door and pocket, the installed cost of $300 will apply, however there is an added measuring and installation trip cost of $130.  (Ex. If you want 1 pocket and door set, the cost will be $430, if you want 2 pocket and door sets the cost will be $730).  You can buy to self install my sliding door screens from

Removing solar screens

Question : How will you mount (install) our new solar screens?  Are they removable?  Can I take the screens off to wash my windows?

& Answer :  Our screens are absolutely removable.  Most often they are attached with small 3/4" self-tapping screws, look through the below pictures for illustrations.  Some windows are made to hold full-sized screens, meaning they have a track at the top and bottom of the window designed to hold a full screen in place. If the window does not have this track, the screen gets attached to the outer part of the window frame using self-tapping screws.  See the below pictures for detailed illustrations. For an extensive review of my MANY videos related to installing screens, visit my Josh Hobbs YouTube channel. If you remove the screens within the two-year warranty, the installation side of my warranty expires when the screens get removed.
