How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Mankato, it’s imperative to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few important features for the ease and beauty of your Mankato 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 operational and stable, but they should also be simple to see out of. There are screen options that are trickier to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist for your curb appeal, while still accepting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A wonderful 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 determine which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and insects into your Mankato home. This airflow ventilation can provide comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, request 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 ask about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

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