How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Natick, it’s important to start preparing your home for spring weather, specifically 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 deliver a few essential features for the ease and beauty of your Natick 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 functional and stable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen options that are harder to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating 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 range 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 well-liked choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A great choice 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 fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Natick home. This airflow resolution can lead to comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request about all the choices 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 ask about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

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