How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Evansville, it’s important to start priming your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few significant features for the coziness and beauty of your Evansville 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 operational and durable, but they should also be clear to gaze out of. There are screen options that are harder to see both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist for your curb appeal, while still accepting 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 endures 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 tougher to tear. A great choice for window viewing purposes 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 offer a nice breeze while helping prevent the infiltration of critters and insects into your Evansville home. This airflow resolution can provide comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, ask about all the options for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the ease of removing dirt and dust from different screens that you find to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.
