How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Baltimore, it’s imperative to start preparing your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters away so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Baltimore 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 useful and stable, but they should also be clear to gaze out of. There are screen selections that are trickier to notice both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A great choice 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 determine which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping avoid the permeation of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Baltimore home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, inquire about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the simplicity of eliminating dirt and dust from numerous screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the best way to ensure your fundamental comfort is by examining your personal preferences and desires and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
