How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather coming up in South Burlington, it’s important to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters away so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few important features for the coziness and beauty of your South Burlington home. When picking the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to consider:

  • 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 identify both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A fantastic possibility for window viewing reasons 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 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 South Burlington home. This airflow ventilation can lead to comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, request about all the options for window screens that allow 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 inqure about the simplicity of eliminating dirt and dust from various screens that you find to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.
