How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Annapolis, it’s crucial to start priming your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few essential features for the coziness and beauty of your Annapolis home. When choosing the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to consider:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be functional and durable, but they should also be easy to see out of. There are screen selections that are more difficult to identify both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist 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 endures longer and helps inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A fantastic option for window viewing intentions is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade based on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to decide which style will fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping avoid the intrusion of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Annapolis home. This airflow ventilation can provide comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, inquire about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from numerous screens that you find to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the greatest way to guarantee your fundamental comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and needs and finding the option that meets your criteria.
