How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Sunset Hills, it’s imperative to start preparing your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters away so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few essential features for the coziness and beauty of your Sunset Hills home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be operational and sturdy, but they should also be clear to see out of. There are screen options that are harder to identify both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good option if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A wonderful possibility for window viewing reasons is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade depending on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to establish which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping avoid the intrusion of critters and insects into your Sunset Hills home. This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, inquire about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the greatest way to ensure your basic comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and essentials and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
