How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Memphis, 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 out of your home so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few significant features for the coziness and beauty of your Memphis home. When picking the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to ponder:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be useful and stable, but they should also be simple to see out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to see both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good option if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A fantastic 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 decide which style will fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping avoid the infiltration of critters and insects into your Memphis home. This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, inquire about all the options 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 inqure about the ease of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you find to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.
