Here you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about the Lifestyle garage screen system.

1. What is the warranty on the Lifestyle garage screen system?
     There is a  Limited Lifetime warranty covering the parts. Screen mesh is 
      not included in the warranty. The manufacturer does not provide 
      you with a warranty on labor, be sure to discuss this with your installer.

2. Does the Lifestyle screen replace my existing garage door?
     No. You will still use your garage door as you normally would. The Lifestyle 
     garage screen system works in conjunction with your existing garage door
     allowing you to quickly switch between your garage door and your 
     Lifestyle garage screen system. When in use, the Lifestyle garage screen
     exchanges positions with your garage door.

3. Does the Lifestyle garage screen system work with wind loaded 
    doors such as those found in Florida and other coastal areas?
     Yes, the Lifestyle system works with all wind loaded and hurrricane reinforced
     doors. However, if your garage door is reinforced with 6" C-channels,
     you should discuss the changes necessary with your installer.

4. Can you add a locking mechanism to the retractable door?
     Yes, the retractable door can be fitted with a locking mechanism at an
     additional cost. Locking mechanisms are optional.

5. What sizes and colors are available?
    Currently, we have 6' wide to 18' wide models and 7', 8', 9' and 10' tall*. The frame
    is currently available in white, brown, sandstone and black.
   *  9' and 10' models available up to 16' width only.

6. I have storage over my garage doors now. Can the Lifestyle 
     garage screen and my garage door go down so I can access it?
    Yes, you will want to open your garage door, roll your Lifestyle garage screen
    down until it touches the floor, leaving it "kicked back" from the jamb. Then 
    simply disconnect your garage door from the opener with the safety disconnect
    cord and gently roll the garage door down until it rests on the Lifestyle frame.
    (Please refer to the pictures to the side of this question.)

7. How much clearance will I lose from my existing garage door
     opening when the Lifestyle is installed?
    Typically, you will not lose more than 1.75" of clearance.

8. How much does the Lifestyle garage screen system cost? 
     As the manufacturer, we do not quote prices. Please contact us 
     and we will put you in touch with a dealer in your area.

9. What is the difference in airflow between the standard 18x14 
     fiberglass screen and the optional screen material?
     You will get approximately 10% more airflow with the standard screen (58%)
     above optional screen materials (48% airflow).

10. Can I install my Lifestyle garage screen system myself?
      Yes. Your local dealer is authorized to sell directly to consumers for self installation.
      We recommend watching the installation videos first by visiting the Installation Video Page

11. What is the upgraded screen mesh made of?
      The upgraded Lifestyle screen uses a mesh made of pvc coated polyester.  
      The weave pattern is 17x20 and both the charcoal and white are good for 
      customers looking for an extremely strong mesh. Only the white mesh functions
      as a privacy screen the charcoal does not. FYI, the standard mesh is made of 
      fiberglass in an 18x14 weave pattern similar to that used in window screens.

12. Will the LifestyleScreen work on a low headroom garage door? ( double horizontal
       track system)
       TheLifestyle screen will not work on low headroom applications. Low headroom
       garage doors are typically found in basement garages. They are typically identified
       by two tracks on the horizontal. Your local dealer will verify this for you.

13. Does the Lifestyle Screen work with a high-lift garage door system?
        The Lifestyle Screen WILL work with a high lift garage door. However, the Lifestyle Screen will always store at the standard            height. Please see the picture below of  the Lifestyle Screen installed on a high lift garage door situation.
