How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Petoskey, it’s important to start priming your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few significant features for the coziness and beauty of your Petoskey home. When choosing the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be functional and stable, but they should also be easy to see out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A great 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 fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Petoskey home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost 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 question the pros about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from various screens that you find to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is just like any other home repair; the top way to guarantee your fundamental comfort is by determining your personal preferences and desires and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
