How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather fast approaching in Monroe, it’s imperative to start preparing your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters away so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few significant features for the coziness and beauty of your Monroe 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 useful and durable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen options that are more difficult to see both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is not there 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 various people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A fantastic choice for window viewing reasons is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade depending 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 stop the intrusion of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Monroe home. This airflow ventilation can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, ask about all the choices for window screens that allow in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from different screens that you find to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the greatest way to certify your ultimate comfort is by determining your personal preferences and needs and finding the option that meets your criteria.
