How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather coming up in Springfield, it’s imperative to start setting up your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters away so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few essential features for the comfort and beauty of your Springfield 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 functional and durable, but they should also be simple to gaze out of. There are screen choices that are harder to notice both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist 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 different people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures 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 tougher to tear. A great possibility 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 determine which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping avoid the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Springfield home. This airflow solution can provide comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the easiness of removing dirt and dust from numerous screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.
