How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather coming up in Grand Rapids, it’s imperative to start preparing your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few significant features for the ease and beauty of your Grand Rapids home. When selecting 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 clear to gaze out of. There are screen selections that are more difficult to notice both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still accepting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range of materials and weaves for screens that many 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 choice 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 depending on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to decide which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping avoid the intrusion of critters and insects into your Grand Rapids home. This airflow ventilation can bring you comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, request about all the choices for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient 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 simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the top way to certify your ultimate comfort is by examining your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
