"Screen doors are summer's unsung heroes: They keep bugs out, let fresh air in, and open our homes to the natural sunlight.

Here are some things to consider about the screens themselves: Aluminum screening, an American favorite, offers good visibility but mars readily—it can dent or crease easily—and deteriorates in marine areas. Vinyl-coated fiberglass screening is more opaque, so it blocks more sun and glare, and it doesn't oxidize or crease. For durability and beauty, consider bronze screening. It develops a patina as it ages, and it won't corrode in salt air. Stainless steel also holds up beautifully but is relatively costly. Heavy-duty pet-resistant screens (also good for homes with young children) and pet doors for screened porches make life easier. Other screens are specially made to cut glare from intense sun."
