How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Fargo, it’s important to start setting up your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a significant role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few essential features for the coziness and beauty of your Fargo home. When picking the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be operational and durable, but they should also be clear to look out of. There are screen options that are harder 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 different people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A great 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 establish which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping avoid the infiltration of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Fargo home. This airflow ventilation can lead to comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, request about all the options for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the ease of removing dirt and dust from various screens that you find to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the greatest way to guarantee your ultimate comfort is by examining your personal preferences and desires and finding the option that meets your criteria.
