How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Raleigh, it’s imperative to start priming your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few important features for the coziness and beauty of your Raleigh 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 useful and durable, but they should also be clear to look out of. There are screen choices that are more difficult 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 range of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most widespread 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 possibility for window viewing purposes is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade based on your need for it.

This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons.
