Magnetic Screen Door Buying Guide

Your home’s porch and deck are some of the best spots to enjoy the summer air, but it’s hard to do that when insects and other bugs from the neighborhood are crawling in your home.  A magnetic door screen is an easy and cost-effective way to keep the bugs out of your home while still allowing fresh air in. If you’re thinking about purchasing a magnetic screen door, here are some things you should consider first.

The DO’s when buying a magnetic screen door

The first step in buying a magnetic screen door is to measure your door. Make sure it’s not too short or tall for your space. Next, make sure you buy a magnetic screen door that’s heavy duty, meaning it will be made with durable material and designed for long-term use. You also want to look for one that is easy to install. If you have trouble installing it yourself, consider getting help from someone who has experience doing so. Finally, when buying a magnetic screen door, try to find one that comes with an optional pet panel—this allows you to control how much air flow passes through your home.

The DON’TS when buying a magnetic screen door


When buying a magnetic screen door you want to be sure you don’t buy one that is poorly made, or too small. There are some key things you need to look for when selecting your magnetic screen door. Below are some reviews of different brands and what they do right, and what they don’t do well. This can help you find which brand might work best for your needs. For example, if you have a large opening in your doorway you will need to get one with a larger surface area so it will cover more area. If it’s just an average size doorway then any should work just fine as long as it’s high quality.

What to look for in the fabric

Look for a mesh fabric that is sturdy, strong and well-stitched; check to make sure you don’t see any holes or snags. Look for something that has enough room between the screen and magnetic surface to allow for proper ventilation (important!). It should also have magnets embedded on both sides of your door. With quality magnets, you won’t have to worry about it falling off in high winds. Finally, look for a product that comes with an easy installation kit. You want to be able to put up your new screen quickly and easily without having to go out and buy additional tools or supplies.

Is it worth spending more?

When shopping for a magnetic screen door, you’ll likely notice there are different options available. It’s not unusual to see a variety of prices from one site to another. However, keep in mind that just because an item is more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean it’s higher quality. Look at reviews and make sure your choice makes sense for your needs. For example, if you have pets or small children running around, look for a stronger material such as metal rather than plastic.
