The company was founded in 1998. Prior to founding Dreamscreens, the founders owned and operated a very large screening and window repair business in Sarasota, which for many years had installed different competitors' models of retractable screen doors. The available doors were all very difficult to install and most were either prohibitively expensive or poorly built. The original patent for the retractable screen dates back to 1914 but the idea never caught on in North America until the 1990s. The idea was good, but the existing products were not optimal. A better retractable screen door was required. Our suggestions for product improvement fell on deaf ears, perhaps a victim of the "not invented here" syndrome, so we decided to do the work ourselves. We initially began manufacturing our newly designed and patented product for sale to our local customers, and quickly confirmed that our product not only installed much easier, but held up to the harsh beach conditions much better than any other product. We soon found ourselves manufacturing retractable screen doors for other window and door service companies. We were in an ideal position: if given a chance to start from scratch, what would we have done differently? We then set about to doing exactly what we felt needed to be done, and fixed what we felt were the most critical deficiencies of available products.
