How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Gaithersburg, it’s crucial to start priming your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Gaithersburg 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 operational and stable, but they should also be easy to gaze out of. There are screen selections that are trickier to see both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is not there 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 many people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial possibility 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 contingent on your need for it. The team at Pella Windows and Doors can work with you to decide which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and insects into your Gaithersburg home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, inquire about all the possibilities for window screens that allow in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from numerous screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is just like any other home repair; the greatest way to guarantee your fundamental comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and desires and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
