The greatest question of my 21 year existence.

    What is the purpose of a screen door? Other than making it more difficult for people I like to enter my house and people I dislike to leave, does it serve some kind of purpose?
  2. Keeps the bugs out.

    Leaving your actual door open to get the outside air without the bugs... Like the screen in the windows basically.

    There is no purpose for screen doors. Do not let anybody tell you otherwise.

    It's a filter...to keep the government's mind control rays out.
  10. Kwesi, I am loving the LSP picture. Adventure Time rocks!

    On topic, probably to help people have some level of privacy? I dunno.

    In case of a massive flood, it will serve to trap gold nuggets for you to use in the post apocalypse world of the future!

    He's probably at 7-11 buying Doritos.

  14. I agree with Kwesi. Screen doors are an irritation.

    Those of you who say that they keep the bugs out are using your exterior doors improperly. The function of an exterior door is to allow entry and exit from a building. Ventilation is afforded by windows. And no, I'm not kidding. This is one of those things that hits my OCD side. I can't stand it when someone leaves a door open. :hyper:

    Why u no open a window!?:bag:

    The screen door for my back door is situated so that it lets in much more cool air than windows alone. Sacramento summer mornings can be very cool, and I can get the house temp down to the mid-60s in the early morning, even in July-August. Saves a lot on the energy bill!
  18. So dogs can look outside and annoyingly bark at people walking on the sidewalk.

    I grew up in Cal on the coast, and it doesn't get as muggy as other parts of the country. Believe me when I say in the middle of the summer time and high humidity, for those unfortunate us who can't afford air conditioning, the windows alone are not enough to cool a house down.
    I also live by a greenbelt, and get all kinds of critters cruising by the house in the evening when we like having the door open. My singer has had racoons wander into his house.
