How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather coming up in Colorado Springs, it’s imperative to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Colorado Springs home. When choosing the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to consider:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be useful and sturdy, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to identify both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist 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 lasts longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A great possibility for window viewing intentions is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade depending 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 offer a nice breeze while helping stop the infiltration of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Colorado Springs home. This airflow ventilation can lead to comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, ask about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from numerous screens that you find to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the best way to ensure your ultimate comfort is by determining your personal preferences and needs and finding the option that meets your criteria.
