How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather fast approaching in El Paso, it’s imperative to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few essential features for the ease and beauty of your El Paso 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 functional and stable, but they should also be easy to gaze 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 nonexistent 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 endures longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A wonderful option 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 Southwest 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 intrusion of critters and insects into your El Paso home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, ask about all the choices for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep bugs out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to inqure about the easiness of removing dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as painless as possible.

Replacing window screens is similar to any other home repair; the best way to certify your fundamental comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and desires and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
