How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Hanover, it’s imperative to start priming your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Hanover home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to ponder:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be functional and durable, but they should also be simple to gaze out of. There are screen options that are harder to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent 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 ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A great choice for window viewing purposes 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 decide which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping avoid the infiltration of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Hanover home. This airflow ventilation can lead to comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, ask about all the options for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the ease of removing 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 greatest way to certify your ultimate comfort is by examining your personal preferences and desires and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
