Retractable screens help bring the outside in - Kelowna BC

At the heart of the picturesque orchards and wineries of the Okanagan Valley and located in Kelowna stands this imposing family home. Surrounded by beautifully designed and immaculately kept gardens, the house is a charming combination of luxurious indoor space and stunning landscaped exterior.

The owners extensively remodeled the house and added the front veranda and the swimming pool, as well as a back porch and patio to enjoy an unrestricted view of the extensive manicured gardens. The porch is used as an entertaining space and acts as a transition between indoors and outside.

The homeowners love their covered porch and the protection from the elements it offers — allowing them to enjoy their gardens whatever the weather. From the end of winter to the last days of fall they like to sit, relax and entertain. Unfortunately, especially in the height of summer, they suffered the unwanted attention of insects and had to retreat indoors. So they looked for a screen solution which would act as a barrier to insects without obstructing the view of their backyard and not take away from the simple and elegant design of their porch.

The homeowners chose retractable screens as the best screen solution suitable for their porch. The view of the gardens was very important and therefore the screens had to be retractable when not in use. The screens also needed to be easy to operate, simple to maintain, and easy to fit in with the owners’ lifestyle.

After full consultation with the couple, Phantom Screens’ BC Interior Division recommended motorized Executive Screens by Phantom® recessed into the porch’s archways to maintain the clean lines of the home’s design. The screens are completely out of sight when not in use, and can be lowered by the simple press of a button on a remote control or a control pad located near the door.

The installation of the screens has enabled the homeowners to thoroughly enjoy their garden, as well as allowing the exterior spaces of their home to be used comfortably from early spring to late fall.

Hello Voulafeld!
Thank you for your question. Yes, we do have an authorized distributor in Greater Toronto area who would be more than happy to help you select retractable screens suitable for your home. Phantom Screens only manufactures retractable screens, we do not create the structures the screens are mounted on. However, you can talk to our distributor and ask them if they can recommend any local contractors/builders who they have worked with who can help you with the structural portion of the project.

Please contact: Ontario Screen Systems Inc. (http://www.phantomscreens.ca/ 888.742.6866 ).

All the best,
Phantom Screens team

Hello Ctudoran!

These recessed Executive motorized retractable screens shown above were manufactured by Phantom Screens and professionally installed by Phantom Screens authorized distributor (in this case, by Somers Screen Solutions in Interior British Columbia, Canada). Phantom Screens has distributors and dealers all over Canada and the US, so no matter where you are located, we can help! You can find a distributor near you by either dialling 1-888-PHANTOM or entering your zip code/postal code at http://www.phantomscreens.com/where-to-purchase/. This is definitely not a DIY project - we recommend you contact our guys in your area so they can come out, check out your space, and provide you an estimate based on your specific needs (mesh options, recessing, etc.).

All the best

Hello! Thanks for your question. I'm afraid I can't directly answer it as our Kelowna distributor only installed the screens. However, the home itself was built by Miller Homes, who may be able to answer your question more fully. You can contact them here: http://www.millerhomes.ca Thanks for your interest, and sorry I can't give you a direct answer!
