How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Salt Lake City, 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 relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few significant features for the coziness and beauty of your Salt Lake City home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to ponder:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be operational and durable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen options that are more difficult to notice 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 many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial option if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A fantastic choice for window viewing intentions 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 suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping stop the permeation of critters and insects into your Salt Lake City home. This airflow resolution can provide comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, inquire about all the options for window screens that let 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 eliminating dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is just like any other home repair; the greatest way to ensure your basic comfort is by examining your personal preferences and desires and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
