How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Syracuse, it’s crucial to start priming 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 deliver a few essential features for the comfort and beauty of your Syracuse home. When choosing 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 stable, but they should also be simple to gaze out of. There are screen options that are harder to notice both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works 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 wonderful option for window viewing reasons 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 fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping stop the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Syracuse home. This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, ask about all the choices for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to inqure about the simplicity of removing dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the greatest way to certify your basic comfort is by determining your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
