How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Mt. Pleasant, it’s imperative to start preparing your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few important features for the ease and beauty of your Mt. Pleasant 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 operational and stable, but they should also be clear to look out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to identify both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still accepting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good option if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A wonderful 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 provide a nice breeze while helping stop the intrusion of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Mt. Pleasant home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request about all the possibilities for window screens that allow 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 find to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the best way to certify your fundamental comfort is by examining your personal preferences and desires and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
