How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather coming up in Asheville, it’s important to start priming your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters away so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few essential features for the coziness and beauty of your Asheville 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 useful and sturdy, but they should also be simple to see out of. There are screen selections that are trickier to identify both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still accepting 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 endures longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A fantastic 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 suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping avoid the infiltration of critters and insects into your Asheville home. This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum 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 question the pros about the ease of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is just like any other home repair; the greatest way to ensure your ultimate comfort is by examining your personal preferences and essentials and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
