How Long Will My Plisse Screen Last?

The LaLiberte’s of Sun City, Texas

The LaLiberte’s of Sun City, Texas have been enjoying bug-free time together on their back porch for 14 years this month.  It was back on October 16 of 2004 that Doug the Screen Guy installed the screen you see them with here.

“We couldn’t use our back porch at all before our Plisse screen,” says Larry LaLiberte, explaining that the mosquitos were so awful in their backyard they worried for their health and safety. 

“Our backyard is shaded with these old oak trees and all of the surrounding yards, including ours, have automatic sprinklers watering the grass daily,” LaLiberte says. 

This damp, shady environment is perfect for breeding mosquitoes which can carry deadly diseases such as West Nile Virus, Malaria and Zika Virus.

Plisse Provides a Solution

Now that the LaLiberte’s have a Plisse retractable screen on their screened porch they say they sit outside every evening. They’re able to relax peacefully on their back porch for as long as they want. “And I can sneak out to the yard to water my plants or fill the bird feeder and come back to the safety of our screened porch when the mosquitoes get to be too much,” says LaLiberte.

Screen Solutions customers, the Lenzen family, utilized double door Plisse retractable screens to enclose their newly added patio.

Plisse Retractable Screens for Porches & Patios

The Plisse retractable screen is an excellent way to utilize your outdoor space without the hassle of bugs.  Use them to completely screen in an existing open porch or gazebo so that you can choose between having it completely screened or completely open at any time. Or screen that same patio with fixed screens and a single Plisse retractable screen door on just one side for easy entry to and from the yard. 

And with proper care and maintenance, your Plisse screen can last for years and years.


A few other benefits of the Plisse retractable screen are:

  • Custom Built in Our Austin, TX Facility
