I scream, you scream, we all scream for Bay Screens

Posted by Greg Amato on Wed, Jun 04, 2014 @ 12:06 AM

Ahh, Spring is here, warm winds, fresh air, we all want to leave our windows open to let the air in. Some of us worry about bugs flying or crawling inside, others like to keep the dust out. Whatever your concern, insect screens will keep out mosquitos, flys, bees, wasps and any and all types of flying creatures. We put them on windows, sliding sns swinging doors. we now have retractable windows and doors, that are unseen, till needed. We even have screens with alarm wiring to let you know when an intruder tries to get in. We make upper attic vent screens or lower crawl space screens, to keep mice and rats out. Even pesky squirrles are no match for our 1/4" hardware cloth. We do them all. We meausre and install, sometimes the same day. You can bring them into our shop or we can send trained installers to your site for an experts opinion on your needs. We even do motorized insect products, and can now do openings 30' wide and 12' tall with products that are bug tite and hold up to the wind and weather and ar controlled with hand held remotes or wireless wall switches.
