How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Boone, it’s important to start preparing your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few important features for the ease and beauty of your Boone home. When picking the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to consider:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be operational and sturdy, but they should also be clear to see out of. There are screen choices that are more difficult to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating 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 widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works 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 tougher to tear. A wonderful option for window viewing reasons is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade based on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to decide which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping prevent the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Boone home. This airflow resolution can provide comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, ask about all the choices for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the simplicity of eliminating dirt and dust from various screens that you find to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the best way to ensure your basic comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
