How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Providence, it’s crucial to start setting up your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few essential features for the coziness and beauty of your Providence 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 stable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to notice both from inside and outside your house, creating 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 widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial option if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A great possibility for window viewing intentions is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade contingent on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to decide which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and bugs into your Providence home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, ask about all the options 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 ease of removing dirt and dust from various screens that you are considering 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 basic comfort is by determining your personal preferences and desires and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
