How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather coming up in Saint Louis, it’s crucial to start setting up your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few essential features for the comfort and beauty of your Saint Louis home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to ponder:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be functional and durable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to see both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist for your curb appeal, while still accepting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked option if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A fantastic choice 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 prevent the intrusion of critters and insects into your Saint Louis home. This airflow ventilation 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 insects out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from numerous screens that you find to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.
