How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather coming up in Traverse City, it’s imperative to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few essential features for the ease and beauty of your Traverse City 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 easy to gaze out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to see 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 range of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts 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 wonderful option for window viewing purposes is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade based on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to establish which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping avoid the intrusion of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Traverse City home. This airflow resolution can provide comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, ask about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to inqure about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from various screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.
