How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Southern Pines, it’s crucial to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Southern Pines home. When picking 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, building the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial option if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A wonderful option for window viewing purposes 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 suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping stop the permeation of critters and bugs into your Southern Pines home. This airflow ventilation can lead to comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request about all the options for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to inqure about the ease of eliminating dirt and dust from various screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.
