Being comfortable in your home’s outdoor setting is important, especially in Arizona where the outdoors have so much to offer. Whether you want to read a book on a lounge chair or enjoy a family dinner with a sunset view, your experience can be improved with a motorized retractable screen.
The cost for motorized retractable screens can vary widely and will not only depend on the size of the building and space it is covering but also on the quality of the awning, the motor mechanism, and the material.
What is a Motorized Retractable Screen?
The patio can be the heartbeat of your home. Arizona blesses its homeowners with year-round sun. However, the heat and bugs can quickly become overbearing, which is where a motorized retractable screen comes into play.
A motorized retractable screen limits exposure to outdoor elements, like an awning. However, different from an awning, you can choose when you want shade with a push of a button and a screen can be installed from floor to ceiling. This allows you to take full advantage of the different positions of the sun and maximize the use of your space.
For example, if the bugs in your area come out at night, you can set up your motorized retractable screen to utilize your outdoor space without any negative impacts from the bugs. This is essential for homeowners in Arizona to take full advantage of the weather.
What is the Average Cost of a Motorized Retractable Screen?
The cost of a motorized retractable screen will be determined by the number of screens you need and the size of the screens. Motorized retractable screens are more expensive than regular screens due to the motorized mechanisms needed for each screen to retract and release.
The average cost of a retractable screen is $3,000 per screen, which includes the installation fees. A single retractable screen for a door averages around $600 for the screen and installation. Keep in mind that these costs can vary based on the material and design elements.
Other Cost Factors
Planning is the best way to stay on top of all the expenses involved in installing a motorized retractable screen in your outdoor setting. If you want to have a breeze running through the space you should try to have screens on opposite ends of the room.
Furthermore, if you just want one specific area retractable and the rest stationary you may be able to save money and keep the project within your budget.
The most important factor when it comes to the cost of the screen and motor will be the size it covers. Larger spaces will be more expensive than smaller spaces and multiple screens will involve more motors and drive up the price.
More finite details such as the distance the installers must travel and any maintenance costs should also be considered before implementing a motorized retractable screen into your outdoor area.
Finding the right company that not only provides high quality products but also excellent support for any questions or concerns you have is the first step in getting a motorized screen.
