How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Charlotte, it’s important to start priming 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 provide a few essential features for the ease and beauty of your Charlotte home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be functional and durable, but they should also be easy to see out of. There are screen options that are more difficult to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A wonderful possibility 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 Windows and Doors can work with you to determine which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping stop the permeation of critters and bugs into your Charlotte home. This airflow ventilation can provide comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, ask about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the greatest way to ensure your ultimate comfort is by examining your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
