How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Terre Haute, it’s important to start preparing your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters away so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few essential features for the coziness and beauty of your Terre Haute 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 clear to gaze out of. There are screen selections that are more difficult to notice both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist 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 many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps inhibit 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 wonderful 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 determine which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping stop the permeation of critters and insects into your Terre Haute home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request about all the possibilities for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from numerous screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.
