How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Eau Claire, it’s imperative to start priming your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Eau Claire 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 functional and durable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen options that are more difficult to notice both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A wonderful possibility for window viewing reasons 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 suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping prevent the intrusion of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Eau Claire home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request about all the choices for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of removing dirt and dust from different screens that you find to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the top way to certify your fundamental comfort is by examining your personal preferences and desires and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
