WorldExecutivesDigest | Top 5 Mistakes People Make When Buying A Magnetic Screen Door | If you’re considering buying a magnetic screen door, there are some important things to keep in mind so that you don’t end up making the same mistakes other customers have made in the past. Before you buy anything, spend some time reading reviews and checking out other people’s experiences on social media. Here are the top five mistakes people make when buying magnetic screen doors, along with what to do instead.
1) Not measuring your current door
Magnetic screen doors are very versatile and can fit any doorway. However, if you’re not measuring your current doorway precisely, you may end up spending extra time and money on something that doesn’t work for you. Remember to take into account security locks and knobs. If your door is too large or too small, it won’t be compatible with magnetic screens. Also, ensure that there is enough space around all sides of your door frame to accommodate the hardware needed for installation.
This could mean taking off hardware such as handles or installing new ones if they don’t already exist. All of these things should be considered before purchasing your magnetic screen door so you know whether it will fit in place of your existing one without issue.
2) Failing to do proper research
The first step in your search should be to do some online research about magnetic screen doors. There are lots of companies that sell magnetic screens and you need to learn as much as possible about each one. You should know what you’re paying for, what’s included, and how long it will take for your new door to arrive after your purchase. The more information you have, the better decisions you can make when choosing a company to buy from.
3) Choosing the wrong material
Not all magnetic screen doors are made equal. When choosing a magnetic screen door, consider if you plan to mount it on metal or wood. Many offer options and warranties, so look closely before you purchase. If it is not going on metal, plastic may be your best option. Either way, do your research before committing to buy one of these products! (Also: if you’re not sure what material to use in your home or business and where, contact us!)
4) Buying too small of a size
It’s important to consider what size of door you want to be able to fit through. It may not seem important, but if you can’t get in and out of your home with ease, it will certainly be an inconvenience. It is always better to have it larger than too small. Also, some magnetic screens are designed for standard doors while others are designed for sliding glass doors. If you are going to purchase one that is made for sliding glass doors, then you need to make sure that it fits properly on your sliding glass door before purchasing it.
5) Installing it improperly
The instructions that come with your screen should be easy to follow and install. While it may not look as aesthetically pleasing as its non-magnetic counterpart, its design is geared towards ensuring that you get to put it up quickly and easily so you can start enjoying your new addition. The easier it is to install, though, unfortunately doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to mess it up.
