Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you and why are you different?
Casper Screens are designed to provide homeowners unmatched quality products and service. Formed in 2009 by owner Kevin Boyd who had spent the previous eight years as a distributor for another retractable screen company. Kevin had become frustrated as many customers had been with the design of other retractable screens. Being an innovator, he set out to craft and then manufacturer a retractable screen that aimed to solve the three most common problems; magnets that didn’t secure the retractable screen doors properly, a screen that aesthetically wasn’t pleasing to look at and weak warranties that covered little to nothing.
I need to put a retractable screen on my Sliding Door, can Casper Screens be used for my Sliding Door?
Yes! Casper Screens can be used for Sliding Doors. By having a retractable screen on your Sliding Door you can retract the screen away when not in use and enjoy those views unobstructed.
How do the screen doors stay closed?

What are Casper Screens made of?
Casper Screens use Powder Coated Aluminum for all the frame parts that make up the screen door. This includes the housing for the screen mesh as well as the top track, bottom track and side profile. We choose aluminum for our screen doors because it is structurally the strongest material we can use for this application. We also spray all our aluminum with a powder coating because it is the Highest Quality finish for indoor/outdoor use.
What kind of screen mesh is used for the screen door?
The mesh for Casper Screen doors is a Fiberglass Mesh with Nylon Coating. This type of screen mesh is stronger and more durable than a traditional screen mesh providing greater functionality as it is more rigid which in turn reduces sagging and won’t pull out of the top track as easily as other meshes on the market.

Casper Screen Doors can be used for Single, Sliding, Double (French) Doors and Oversized Doors. Casper Screen Doors can be used for both in swinging and out swinging doors.

Single Doors up to 100” tall and 60” wide.

Double (French) Doors up to 100” tall and 100” wide for both doors (50” per door)
Are there any maintenance requirements for Casper Screen Doors?
Casper Screen Doors require minimal maintenance. We recommend that homeowners use a vacuum once a month to clean the bottom track of their screen door. This helps to eliminate any dust, pet hair or other particles that may have accumulated in the brushes on the bottom track. Casper Screens also recommends that the screen doors be retracted when not in use especially during cold, windy and wet winter months. To clean the screen mesh, use a sponge or towel and a mild solution of water and dish soap to wipe down the screen mesh of any dust. Never use WD-40 or other lubricants on our screen door components. If you are experiencing problems with the screen door, please give us a call.
Will my pets be able to get through my screen door?
Casper Screen Doors are designed to “give” a small amount if pets were to bump into them. Pets may first be confused after the screens are installed and we recommend pet owners make sure to familiarize their pets with the screens. Our screens are designed to prevent insects from getting inside and to provide great ventilation for your home, condo, apartment or business.
What happens if someone walks into my screen?
The mesh on Casper Screen Doors is designed to provide a small amount of “give” if someone were to walk into the screen door. If an individual was to fall or run through the screen by accident, the screen may be pulled from its housing in which case we recommend having a certified technician service the door and/ or replace the screen mesh.
