How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Davenport, it’s crucial to start preparing your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters away so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few important features for the coziness and beauty of your Davenport 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 operational and sturdy, but they should also be simple to see out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is not there 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 lasts longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good option if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A wonderful choice for window viewing intentions is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade based 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 provide a nice breeze while helping avoid the permeation of critters and insects into your Davenport home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, request about all the options for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the simplicity of eliminating dirt and dust from various screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

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