One of the many little, yet important things we had to do around here was get a screen for the sliding glass door that leads to the patio. We got around to it during the hottest week this summer. Now that it's cooled off we're getting to enjoy it very much.
I broke the last screen in two! Annika was a baby at the time. I had her in my arms and was walking to the kitchen thinking about what to make for dinner when bam! I walked right into it! Fortunately I didn't fall with Annika. So when I called the screen guys
they suggested the tougher heavy duty screen, specially for the daily use with kids.
The other thing they cautioned us about before leaving was that we weren't in the habit of having a screen and could easily walk into it again. We gently placed one of Annika's works of art on the screen until we remember that it's there.
I liked the screen guys we used. A year ago I saw their truck on the road and I took a picture of it at a stop light. I had to hunt the picture down in iphoto but I'm glad I found it. I made a few other calls but their prices and services didn't seem seem very good over the phone. Screen Mobile was fantastic. They came to our house and made a door to fit in under an hour.
