How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Norwalk, it’s crucial to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters away so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few significant features for the ease and beauty of your Norwalk home. When picking the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to consider:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be functional and stable, but they should also be easy to see out of. There are screen options that are more difficult to notice both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent 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 choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A wonderful choice for window viewing intentions 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 establish which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and insects into your Norwalk home. This airflow solution can provide comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, request about all the choices for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is just like any other home repair; the best way to certify your basic comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and desires and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
