How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Wilmington, it’s crucial to start preparing your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few important features for the comfort and beauty of your Wilmington home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be useful and durable, but they should also be easy to gaze out of. There are screen selections 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 range of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A great option for window viewing reasons 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 match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Wilmington home. This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, ask about all the possibilities 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 inqure about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from various screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is just like any other home repair; the top way to ensure your basic comfort is by determining your personal preferences and needs and finding the option that meets your criteria.
