    Screens???

    Why do window screens not exist in China/HK?

    I mean...I love the windows, balconies I have now...but with no screens, its difficult to keep them open to enjoy the breeze and natural air (as opposed to the A/C stuffy recycled air).

    So.....

    I'm thinking of getting large mosquito nets and cut them to size and tape to outside of window so that when window is opened, the screen will stay closed.

    This will work for both doors and windows.

    Anyone have better ideas?
    Also, do you know where to buy?

    hi matt,
    i've just placed an order with this company...
    http://firstscreens.com/
    i've ordered the roller screens for my balcony door. they came out with a sample showing how they work and take measurements. They'll be ready in a week. Ask for Angel, her English is very good and she is quite helpful.
    sounds like we're both looking forward to some cool and breezy weather!

    Insect screen repair

    Our dog has torn the mesh on the retractable screen door; does any one know a repair person for this type of small work?
