How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Edmonton, it’s crucial to start priming 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 appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few important features for the coziness and beauty of your Edmonton home. When selecting 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 clear to look out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to see both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps inhibit 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 depending on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to decide which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping stop the intrusion of critters and bugs into your Edmonton home. This airflow solution can provide comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, request about all the options for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the easiness of eliminating dirt and dust from different screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.
