How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Rochester, it’s important to start setting up your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters away so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few significant features for the ease and beauty of your Rochester 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 functional and sturdy, but they should also be simple to gaze out of. There are screen options that are trickier to notice both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist 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 different people use. The most universal 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 harder to tear. A great option for window viewing purposes 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 determine which style will fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping prevent the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Rochester home. This airflow ventilation can bring you comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request 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 question the pros about the simplicity 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 ensure your fundamental comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
