How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in St. Paul, it’s crucial to start preparing your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play an important 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 significant features for the ease and beauty of your St. Paul 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 sturdy, but they should also be easy to gaze out of. There are screen options that are trickier to notice both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment 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 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 great option for window viewing reasons is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade contingent on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to determine which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping stop the infiltration of critters and creepy-crawlies into your St. Paul home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum 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 easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the top way to guarantee your fundamental comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and needs and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
