"No other retractable screen retailer or distributor currently offers a quality product at an affordable price that the average homeowner can install themselves," says Doug, "the Screen Guy," Bennett.

"Doug the Screen Guy," the voice behind the popular DIY retractable screen blog, Plissé by Screen Solutions, is coming out from behind his computer screen to be the face of a new video series.

Expanding on the popular, "How to Plissé," section of the retractable screen manufacturer and retailers blog, the new video series, of the same name, will demonstrate for homeowners with precise detail exactly how to measure for, install, adjust and use their Plissé retractable screens.

"No other retractable screen retailer or distributor currently offers a quality product at an affordable price that the average homeowner can install themselves," says Douglas J. Bennett, better known online and to his customers as "Doug, the Screen Guy."

Bennett further explains that when customers first find out the Plissé retractable screen is a DIY project they can be intimidated. Sometimes even still after explaining that the Plissé retractable screen is actually custom built in Screen Solutions' Austin, Texas facility, assembled, set up and quality tested before being shipped via FedEx ground, free, to the customer's home.

The Screen Guy figures the best way to convince his potential customers that there is nothing to be scared of is to show them - himself. Which is how he came to star in the first video of the series, out today, "How to Measure for a Retractable Screen."

The videos are reminiscent of the popular "This Old House" only hosted by a mellower version of "Home Improvement's" character, "Tim, the Tool Man Taylor."

Bennett has already filmed and begun production on the remaining videos, which he plans to unveil every couple of weeks until he has a full arsenal of "How to Plissé" videos with which to show clients.

Bennett has been an entrepreneur since childhood, perhaps beginning when he reportedly convinced his siblings to volunteer their time and labor to build a road in a patch of empty land behind their home as he supervised. The setting was South Texas in the midst of summer heat and within mere days they were riding their bikes on the new road.

Many years later, Bennett became intrigued by the retractable screen industry as he researched purchasing several for the custom home he was building himself. Unhappy with the options available, Bennett began looking further into the designs themselves, as well as what was available in the European market.

Bennett's Screen Solutions Inc was the first to offer affordable quality in retractable door and window screens to the North American market with their Plissé retractable screen debut in 2006.

Today the patent-pending Plissé II retractable screen is new and improved and in full stock at Bennett's central Texas facility, ready to be custom built for each and every customer.

The Plissé Difference

Not all retractable door screens are created equal. The Plissé retractable screen by Screen Solutions demonstrates this with innovations that include die cast aluminum corners, Teflon-infused plastic and a bottom rail dust cover.

Especially innovative to the invisible screen market is the DIY replaceable fabric assembly, now standard with the Plissé II. This feature means no expensive service call or complete replacement is necessary if your neighbor tries to walk through your new retractable screen door.    

There simply aren't any other retractable screen available to the average homeowner that offer the same abundance of features of the Plissé retractable screen: die cast aluminum corners, minimal use of plastics and stainless steel small parts for long life in extreme weather conditions, six standard colors to closely match most exterior trim colors, dual adjustable die cast aluminum handles, Teflon-infused plastic for smooth operation, bottom rail dust cover and DIY replaceable fabric assembly.

All of this is available for less than $200, including free FedEx ground shipping to the lower 48 states, and backed by the Screen Solutions Inc limited lifetime warranty.
