How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Hunt Valley, it’s imperative to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few essential features for the comfort and beauty of your Hunt Valley home. When choosing the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be useful and sturdy, but they should also be clear to look out of. There are screen selections that are trickier to identify both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A great choice for window viewing intentions 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 match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and bugs into your Hunt Valley home. This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, ask about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from numerous screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.
