Get Fall Weather Protection with a Retractable Protective Screen

As the summer weather cools down and fall comes around, many people want to enjoy the last bit of pleasant weather on their deck or patio. However, sometimes the weather conditions and other factors can prevent this. At Designer Awnings, we provide retractable screens to protect your outdoor space and let you use it as long as possible before winter.

Located in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and serving Berks, Lackawanna, Monroe, Carbon, Northampton, and Lehigh Counties, Designer Awnings is the place to trust throughout PA for custom screens and awnings. Here, we discuss how a retractable protective screen can help protect your property.

How A Retractable Protective Screen Shields Your Property

A retractable protective screen is just what it sounds like— a screen that is added to an outdoor space like a patio or deck to provide a defense against inclement weather and other factors. The retractable design allows the screen(s) to retreat into a hidden casing in the house, so they are nearly invisible when not in use. When you open the screens, they can protect your property from several elements that would otherwise limit your time spent on your patio or porch during fall. These include:

Changing Weather

One of the biggest selling points of a retractable screen is the weather protection it provides, especially as seasons change. You can retract the screen when the sun is still shining, or you want to enjoy your view. You can then put down the screen once the leaves start to fall and you don’t want to deal with raking your patio. Certain designs can also protect against rain, hail, and snow if you want to use your patio or porch even in the winter months.


A retractable protective screen also protects against pests and prevents them from getting closer to your house. Although bugs are more common in the summer months, they can still be around as the temperatures drop. Other pests and animals like chipmunks, squirrels, mice, and bats can try to get into small areas near your home when winter comes around. Installing a retractable screen can help keep them out, too.

Nosy Neighbors

Although nosy neighbors may not be a problem for everyone, some homeowners have to deal with prying eyes. This can be frustrating over time, but luckily, a retractable screen is a great way to increase your privacy. Protective screens can also allow you to relax without distractions if your neighbors are particularly nosy, depending on what type of material you choose.

These are just some of the ways that a retractable protective screen from Designer Awnings can help protect your property during fall (and all the seasons). If you want to learn more, read through our post about the benefits of a retractable screen.
