How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Falls Church, it’s crucial to start priming 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 essential features for the coziness and beauty of your Falls Church 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 operational and durable, but they should also be easy to look out of. There are screen selections that are more difficult to notice both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still accepting 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 ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A wonderful possibility for window viewing purposes 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 can work with you to determine which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping stop the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Falls Church home. This airflow resolution can lead to comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request about all the choices for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of removing 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 greatest way to guarantee your ultimate comfort is by determining your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
