Screen Doors

Retractable/Rollaway Screen Doors
Our Retractable/Rollaway screen doors are an “inside mount” style which offers superior aesthetics and durability when compared to a “surface mount” style (which protrudes 5+ inches outside your door frame). We have the combined knowledge of thousands of disappearing screen door installations and are be happy to come out and show you a display of an actual door.

Sliding Screen Door
Our sliding screen door offers an all-metal construction with steel wheels, bearings and a metal lock.  Many of our customers opt for Solar Screen in their doors to take advantage of the added durability it offers. The doors are built with inside corners and adjustable wheels for a perfect fit!

Swinging Screen Door
Our swinging screen doors have many styles and colors to choose from. These are the best swinging screen doors on the market and we can fit them to virtually any door- and French sets are no problem! All doors come with a pneumatic closure installed at no additional charge and a 10 year warranty* you can even customize your door even more by adding a Solar Screen!

Window Screens and Window Screen Repair

Our custom window screen frames are all-aluminum constructed with mitered inside corners- no cheap plastic corners like the other guys use along with pull tabs and springs. We charge flat rates, so getting a solid estimate with no hidden fees is easy and hassle free!

If you screen is torn, don’t worry! We also offer screen repairs and replacement window screen frames! Just like most of our other screen products, you can opt to re-screen your screens with Solar Screen due to its durability.

Pet Screens

Our pet doors are made to LAST, unlike those flimsy plastic kits from the hardware store that are just going to cause you problems. Pet doors are directly installed into your screen or sliding door and won’t crack or warp during the harsh seasons like Winter and Summer!

Solar Screens

Are you looking to lower your home’s energy bills this upcoming Spring and Summer? Solar screens are a unique, heavy-duty woven mesh that blocks 80-90% of the sun’s hot rays before they enter your home’s windows and doors. They can help lower the temperature in your home by as much as 15 degrees!

Introducing Our New Security Window Screens

Bill H. from Stockton decided that for his windows, he wanted maximum security without gaudy iron security bars detracting the beauty of his home. With our new security window screens we were able to help him achieve both of these goals without compromise. Bill H. picked out a combination of quick escape and fixed security window screens in a white frame finish along with our Viewguard and sliding security door for total home protection.

Is there a benefit to having window screens built on-site?

onsiteYes! Mike’s Mobile Screens builds all of your, window and door, screens on-site because we have specific standards on how we want your Solar Screens to fit. We want screens to fit perfectly and this usually means measuring everything to the 1/16th of an inch. If we make a mistake out in the field we can easily correct it. This allows us to confidently build screens to fit your home. This is essential when it comes to installing solar screens.

Other companies make screens inches larger than necessary so they don’t accidentally make one too small (and cause them another trip out). Unfortunately, when installing a solar screen that isn’t a perfect fit there is a high possibility of water intrusion problems down the road.

When it comes to window screens, ones built on-site are always better. Also whenever someone is doing work on your home be sure to check their insurance, GL, worker’s compensation and contractor’s license and bond.

How To Keep Bugs Away From Your Screen

How To Keep Bugs Away From Your Screens

Those long hot summer days are finally here and so are the annoying bugs that come with them. Here are some quick tips how to keep those pesky bugs away from your screens:

Clean Your Screens

Debris is constantly flying through the air and getting caught in your window screens. This collection of small particles can attract several types of bugs causing them to hang out onto your screens. Simply remove your window screens and wash them with a mild soap and water. This is a great time to wash your windows also. Not feeling up to it? Give us a call and we can wash your windows inside and out! Be sure to let the screens dry before re-installing to avoid spotting your windows.

Household Repellents

If washing the screens doesn’t seem to help you there are some simple repellents you might find around the home that can be used to deter bugs. A little bit of peppermint oil on your screens usually works. It can be applied easily using a paper towel. Vinegar works well as a second choice. Ammonia works great as a cat and small animal repellent.


Citronella is a popular bug repellent and comes in an oil form or in candles. You can often find it at outdoor stores near camping equipment. Now you can enjoy your summer breezes without unsightly bugs crawling all over your screens!
