How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Cape Cod, it’s important to start priming your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few important features for the coziness and beauty of your Cape Cod 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 sturdy, but they should also be easy to look out of. There are screen selections that are harder to notice both from inside and outside your house, building 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 variety of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked option if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear. A wonderful possibility for window viewing purposes 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 determine which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping prevent the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Cape Cod home. This airflow solution can provide comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, request about all the options for window screens that allow in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the ease of removing dirt and dust from different screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is just like any other home repair; the best way to guarantee your basic comfort is by determining your personal preferences and needs and finding the choice that meets your criteria.
