Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EightOfEight squirrel-resistant screen
For various reasons, my kitchen window screens often develop holes -- from harsh direct sunlight, curious birds, and aggressive squirrels who hang on the screen door any time I bake peanut butter cookies. (Yes, really!) I installed this to see if it would hold up any better than the standard type of screen, and I am happy to say that, after about 6 months and 3 different seasons, it looks as good as the day it was installed. It is a little bit darker than the original screen, but not enough to annoy me. It was also easy to work with for this average-skilled DIY-er.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaGator Good quality screen, but applications very limited due to smaller dimensions.
This screen, given its dimensions, is only really useful for screen doors or narrow widths of less than 36in. I could only use it on the screen door for the patio, it cannot be useful for the very large screens enclosing the patio, so something else with appropriate dimensions will need to be used for that. Be aware of this when shopping for replacement screens since the size of the screen is directly related to whether or not you will be able to successfully install it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaneDame Super Strong Screen
I'm on a tight budget, so I'd rather spend a few dollars to maintain parts of my home rather than replace those parts completely- like my storm doors. I saw that the screen sections were a bit worse for wear, due to my overly-inquisitive rat terrier, so I knew new screens were in order.
I know metal screen stands up to just about anything, but I've always found it difficult to spline in, and I don't care for its look. It also tends to retain "dents" and bumps from being hit by children's hands, or pet's paws.
I prefer fiberglass screen-- it's got greater outward visibility, is WAY easier to install, and has a great look when finished. Its past down side, though, has been a lack of the toughness of metal screen material. Until now.
I installed this Adfors Extra Strength Screen in both of my storm doors recently, and am so far very impressed with strength the screen has shown. It has stood up to my crazed terrier, and shows no signs of damage whatsoever. Tough stuff! I recommend this Adfors Extra Strength to any homeowner looking for a durable fiberglass replacement to metal screens.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey95 Good Upgrade Screen for Patio Doors
The extra strength is a good fit for applications like screen doors where there can pressure and contact on the screen material. It's a bit darker / more opaque than standard screening but this can be a plus to prevent kids and animals from attempting to walk through closed screen doors. The material cuts easily with shears and generally installs easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Keeps the bugs out
We needed to replace the screens over the vents to our pump house. This screen cuts easily and is heavy - we didn't have any trouble with snags, etc., while we stapled it over the vents. It certainly keeps the bugs out. We previously had trouble with birds making holes, so we put this screen on the inside and hardware cloth on the outside so we're protected from all intruders. It looks like it will last a long time. The darker charcoal color would look good on most windows or screen doors if you wanted a little tint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinUT Looks good after a hard winter
I installed this in later summer of last year and waited until this spring to write the review. As of right now, I have nothing bad to say about this product. It cut well and went into my existing screen frames with no issues (i recommend getting a screen tool for this) it's held up well all winter and doesn't have any holes or tears from our harsh windy winter. I think this is great replacement for damaged screens on any home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiki Very nice screen. Very easy to work with. Strong.
I used this screen to replace a window screen and it worked out very well. It is nice and strong and durable and does keep insects out. The weave is nice and tight. I put some closeup pictures for you so you can see. It was very easy to work with and the darker color filters the bright sunlight much better than the old lighter aluminum screen did. It is much more attractive and adds a subtle, overall improvement to the room.
This is a very good price for a very good product!
I will be using it on several more window screens and highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jayp Appears Durable – Time Will Tell How Good It Is
I got this screen to replace one that I had previously installed several years ago. It is stapled against latticework that skirts the underside of my deck (see picture). The lattice and the screening are intended to keep small insects, mice and other wildlife from burrowing through and making a home under my deck.
A screen I had previously installed had been ruined by small critters or mice that apparently tore through the screening (see picture), so I was looking for a screen made of “tough” material that would be resistance to critters.
The screen appears to be a densely woven fiberglass material that I hope will be durable for this special use. It was easily cut to size with a scissors and did not rip when stretched and stapled in place, which suggests it will do the job. The material was attractive as installed (see picture). Only time will tell how the product will actually perform.
