How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Lewes, it’s imperative 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 appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few essential features for the ease and beauty of your Lewes home. When picking 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 sturdy, but they should also be clear to look out of. There are screen options that are more difficult to see 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 a variety of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A great option 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 avoid the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Lewes home. This airflow ventilation can lead to comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, inquire 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 ease of eliminating dirt and dust from various 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 best way to certify your ultimate comfort is by determining your personal preferences and desires and finding the option that meets your criteria.
