How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Shrewsbury, it’s imperative to start priming your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few important features for the comfort and beauty of your Shrewsbury home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to consider:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be useful and stable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen choices that are more difficult to identify both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A wonderful option for window viewing purposes is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade based on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to determine which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping avoid the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Shrewsbury home. This airflow ventilation can lead to comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, request about all the choices for window screens that allow in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the simplicity of cleaning of dirt and dust from different screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.
