How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Decatur, it’s important to start preparing your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play an important 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 comfort and beauty of your Decatur 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 useful and stable, but they should also be simple to gaze out of. There are screen choices that are more difficult to notice both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps prevent 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 possibility 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 establish which style will fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping stop the infiltration of critters and insects into your Decatur 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 possibilities for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.
