How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather fast approaching in Birmingham, it’s crucial to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few essential features for the coziness and beauty of your Birmingham home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be operational and stable, but they should also be clear to look out of. There are screen selections that are harder to see both from inside and outside your house, building 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 universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts 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 more difficult to tear. A wonderful choice for window viewing purposes 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 determine 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 Birmingham home. This airflow resolution can lead to comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, inquire about all the choices for window screens that allow in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures 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 just like any other home repair; the best way to guarantee your fundamental comfort is by examining your personal preferences and desires and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
