How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather coming up in Jackson, it’s crucial 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 enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few essential features for the comfort and beauty of your Jackson home. When choosing the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to ponder:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be operational and sturdy, but they should also be easy to look out of. There are screen options that are trickier to notice both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most common 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 harder to tear. A great choice for window viewing purposes 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 establish which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping stop the intrusion of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Jackson home. This airflow ventilation can provide comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, ask about all the choices for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the simplicity of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the greatest way to guarantee your fundamental comfort is by determining your personal preferences and essentials and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
