How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather fast approaching in Boston, it’s crucial to start priming your home for spring weather, especially 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 significant features for the ease and beauty of your Boston home. When picking 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 gaze out of. There are screen options that are harder to see both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still accepting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety 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 inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A wonderful possibility for window viewing reasons 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 decide which style will fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping stop the intrusion of critters and bugs into your Boston home. This airflow ventilation can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, ask 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 ask about the simplicity of eliminating dirt and dust from various screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the best way to ensure your fundamental comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
