How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in North Carolina, it’s imperative to start preparing your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few important features for the ease and beauty of your North Carolina 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 useful and durable, but they should also be simple to gaze out of. There are screen options that are trickier to see both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is not there 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 widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps prevent 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 option for window viewing intentions 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 can work with you to determine which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping avoid the intrusion of critters and insects into your North Carolina home. This airflow ventilation can bring you comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, ask about all the choices for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of removing dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the top way to guarantee your ultimate comfort is by examining your personal preferences and essentials and finding the option that meets your criteria.
