1. Clear vinyl fabric expands and contracts significantly with changing temperatures. Clear vinyl SHOULD NOT be installed or run up/down in ambient air temperatures of less than 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. In cold weather climates, clear vinyl screens should be lowered in the fall when ambient air temperature is greater than 60 degree Fahrenheit and left down until spring when ambient air temperatures average 60 degrees Fahrenheit again. This enables the user to regularly clean and treat the screen throughout the colder months without having to run them. Screens left rolled up for extended periods collect moisture and will most likely stick to the roll, causing damage when deployed.
3. Clear vinyl screens MUST BE completely dry BEFORE they are rolled up. It is recommended that you deploy clear vinyl screens at least once a week to allow built-up moisture to dry.
4. Clear vinyl screens SHOULD NOT be deployed downward in winds of 10 mph or higher. Care should be used when rolling screens up in winds of 10 mph or higher.
5. Clear vinyl screens MUST BE treated with a vinyl cleaner and conditioner, like Plexus (available at most hardware stores), on a regular basis, once a month minimum. Doing so will extend the life of the screen by decreasing cloudiness and reducing static build-up. Average lifespan of a clear vinyl screen serviced per this maintenance schedule is 3-5 years.
6. Maximum width of clear vinyl screens is 100 inches. Up to an additional 68 inches (34" on each side) can be added to the width by adding solid vinyl to the sides (maximum total width of 168 inches combines). NO EXCEPTIONS.
7. Maximum height of clear vinyl screens is 216 inches.
8. Zippers are attached to clear vinyl screens with the addition of a solid vinyl strip. NO EXCEPTIONS. For screens 100 inches or less, this strip may be minimal (approx. 1" wide) and will mostly be hidden within the tracks.
9. Customer MUST specify a color and configuration of solid vinyl borders, including specifying "use minimal" for screens less than 100 inches wide (i.e. 12" white vinyl on right and on left sides, no solid vinyl on bottom). A sketch of the desired configuration is requested.
10. If solid vinyl is desired along the bottom of the screen, an additional fee will apply.
11. Clear vinyl comes in rolls 54 inches wide. For openings higher than 54", there WILL BE a visible horizontal seam.  This seam is placed as high as possible, unless otherwise specified.
12. Clear vinyl is NOT supported by a warranty. Customer assumes all responsibility for service issues and/or replacement if needed.
