How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Westerly, it’s crucial to start setting up your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few significant features for the coziness and beauty of your Westerly 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 simple to gaze out of. There are screen selections that are more difficult to see both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist for your curb appeal, while still accepting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts 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 great possibility for window viewing reasons is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade contingent on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to determine which style will fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping stop the intrusion of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Westerly home. This airflow solution can provide comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, ask about all the choices for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the ease of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you find to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the greatest way to guarantee your basic comfort is by examining your personal preferences and desires and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
