How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather right around the corner in Kansas City, it’s crucial to start preparing your home for spring weather, specifically 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 provide a few essential features for the ease and beauty of your Kansas City 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 durable, but they should also be clear to see out of. There are screen choices that are more difficult to identify both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that different 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 well-liked possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A fantastic choice for window viewing intentions 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 fit with your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and insects into your Kansas City home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, inquire about all the choices for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep creatures 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 straightforward as possible.
