How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Greenfield, it’s important to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Greenfield home. When choosing the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to consider:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be functional and sturdy, but they should also be simple to see out of. There are screen options that are more difficult to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating 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 widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial option if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A fantastic option 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 establish which style will fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping avoid the infiltration of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Greenfield home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, request about all the possibilities for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the ease of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the top way to guarantee your basic comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and desires and finding the option that meets your criteria.
