Make the most of the outdoors

Enjoying all the environment has to offer during the warmer months while in a boathouse, Muskoka room, or a porch means being able to let the good stuff in while keeping all manner of pests out.

Installing quality screens to maximize the enjoyment of outdoor living spaces allows you to take in the sights, sounds and scents of Muskoka without the annoyance of bugs and other pests interrupting a lovely day.

The best part is there are so many top-notch options available – from large space screens to remote controlled motorized. There is something for almost everyone, explains Kevin Cardwell of Muskokify.

“Screens that are installed by experienced and knowledgeable professionals offer protection from a lot more than just insects and pests,” says Kevin. “Our Canadian-made screens can cover openings up to 42 feet wide and 14 feet tall and come in a variety of colours, with several mesh and vinyl choices.”

Some screens have tightly woven mesh that provide UV protection, reducing solar rays by as much as 98 percent. These are especially useful to safeguard furniture, flooring and even boats from the intense UV rays that causing fading.

With well over a decade of installing high-end manual and motorized screens and shutters throughout cottage country, the Muskokify team is well-equipped to provide the best advice to their clients.

“We take into account our clients’ lifestyle needs when providing the best selections for their space,” says Kevin. “We help them make informed decisions on what screens to use on Muskoka rooms, patios, gazebos, porches and window openings.”

Kevin himself is a lifelong Muskoka cottager and experienced contractor who understands the region and its nuances. He knows the product’s performance is only as good as its installation.

“For oversized openings like garage doors and French doors, we have a Horizon screen that is designed specifically for these spaces,” he says. “It can be installed on any difficult-to-screen opening, protecting up to 21 feet wide with a single unit and reaching 42 feet by going with two.”

While the large screens are an easy-to-operate manual option for large spaces, mid-size and smaller openings have a bit more choice, including motorized options.

“I have been recommending our vinyl screens because they have a lot of great features,” says Kevin. “They are made with marine grade vinyl and clear mylar windows, making them strong and durable. Our vinyl screens prevent pollen, rain, wind, and snow from coming in while increasing the comfort of your living area.”

Whatever the space, Muskokify can help you find the right screen for your needs.
