How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather fast approaching in Peoria, it’s important to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few significant features for the ease and beauty of your Peoria 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 stable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen options that are trickier to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps prevent 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 wonderful possibility for window viewing reasons 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 match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping stop the intrusion of critters and bugs into your Peoria home. This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, request about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of cleaning of dirt and dust from different 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 best way to certify your ultimate comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and needs and finding the option that meets your criteria.
