Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Got its issues Total lack of directions...... Picture(s) on the outside of the box is IT...... Not adequate for "weights" --- just what is the function of the flattened inserts..? Poor guidance of how to set-up the roll-up option...what keeps the looped strings in place... supposed to rip through the screening?? Bottom closure has already lost its magnetism and will not seal with the opposite panel (three weeks). Have two single car garage doors.... Screen is too wide for the opening.... What do you do with the excess material? Cannot cut it off w/o losing an essential grommet.... All-in-all ---- happy to keep most of the bugs at bay.... good idea, not a great execution...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Screen The screen was very easy to put up and is serving its purpose well. I wanted a screen for my garage workshop to let some fresh air in as well as allow my dog (He is a husky and loves to run through open garage doors and never stop) to hang out in the shop with me while I work. The screen keeps him in and keeps the area nice and cool. It is also proving to be very durable in high winds. The springtime here has brought gusts of up to 40mph so far and the screen has not budged. Very happy with this product. April 7, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps Birds Out, Allows Easy Access and Lets Light In The screen was just the thing to prevent swallows from entering an open doorway in an otherwise enclosed patio in a condo. In past years the swallows built nests resulting in a terrible mess on the walls and floor. Fitted screens for doorways are available on the internet but cost at least several times more. This was an inexpensive option that worked well and allowed flexibility in attaching screen to vinyl siding. Simply attached it by tying pieces of heavy duty twine through mounting holes on top of screen and other end of twine to plastic hooks (normally used to attach Christmas lights to vinyl siding and not included with screen) inserted where the vinyl siding sections go together. Worked great, can easily be adjusted up or down and allows light to enter the patio. The magnetic closing feature works well, allowing people easy access. Screen is of good quality, i.e. heavier than typical screening on screen doors and windows. June 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It was worth the price We wanted this to screen in our garage like a lanai. My husband reinforced it with trim all the way around or else he feels as though it would have been flimsy and flopped around. This made it secure. The hooks and eyes are worthless but we wanted to use the magnets and it needed more. There are only 2 on the closure. We found some magnets at a craft store and are going to add some more to it with glue and Velcro. All in all it is pretty good. Wouldn't have wanted to pay any more for it because we had to turn around and buy wood, etc. but it makes a big difference keeping the bugs and such out. December 11, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Product Meets Expectation The Snavely Forest Garage Screen met my expectations. The velcro straps are not really usable in hot climate areas. The magents have the proper strength but more are needed. It keeps the bugs out and big particles out of the garage. Product is adequate. It needs about $5 worth of supplies to make it truly functional which I added. Very easy to install. The price value is there but overall, I would have paid more for a product that is superior.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good deal for the price Very easy to install. Works good and now I can have some fresh air in the garage without the bugs. June 12, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great screen for the money I ordered this to use on my single car garage and I have been pleasantly surprised by the quality and value. The screen is a heavyweight mesh that feels pretty durable as far as screens go. It has all of the features one would expect and comes with everything you would need to install it. The Velcro attachments are heavy-duty and stick well, but it also comes with the metal hooks and hardware needed for a more permanent installation. The kit even comes with cords to use if you want to roll the screen up and down, which is a feature I will probably try in the near future. The screen attaches on the sides with Velcro, has a split down the middle with magnet closures, and the bottom has metal rods that slip into a channel to give the bottom some support. The quality is not super fantastic, but well better than I expected for $40. As far as Home Depot's online service, I was again pleasantly surprised. I have not used the online ordering option, but they shipped the product quickly and it arrived in perfect shape. They even included product return information and a shipping label so that return could be as painless as possible. Overall, a very good purchase. April 15, 2010
