How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Danville, it’s important to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few essential features for the comfort and beauty of your Danville 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 useful and stable, but they should also be easy to see out of. There are screen selections that are harder to notice both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A great option for window viewing purposes 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 establish which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping stop the infiltration of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Danville home. This airflow ventilation can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, request about all the options for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to inqure about the simplicity of cleaning of dirt and dust from different screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.
