How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Fall River, it’s important to start setting up your home for spring weather, particularily 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 deliver a few essential features for the ease and beauty of your Fall River 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 operational and sturdy, but they should also be clear to see out of. There are screen options that are trickier to see both from inside and outside your house, creating 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 various 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 good possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A great possibility for window viewing intentions 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 of Fall River can work with you to establish which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping stop the permeation of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Fall River home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, inquire about all the possibilities for window screens that allow in as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the simplicity of cleaning of dirt and dust from various screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

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