How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Nashville, it’s important to start setting up your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few significant features for the ease and beauty of your Nashville 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 useful and durable, but they should also be clear to gaze out of. There are screen selections that are more difficult to identify both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist 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 many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial option if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A fantastic option for window viewing purposes 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 establish which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping stop the infiltration of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Nashville home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, inquire about all the choices for window screens that allow in as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask 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 similar to any other home repair; the greatest way to guarantee your ultimate comfort is by examining your personal preferences and needs and finding the option that meets your criteria.
