How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Champaign, it’s imperative 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 relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Champaign home. When picking 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 sturdy, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen selections that are harder to see both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A great option for window viewing reasons is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade depending on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to decide which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping avoid the infiltration of critters and insects into your Champaign home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, inquire about all the choices 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 inqure about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you find to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the top way to guarantee your basic comfort is by determining your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
