How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather fast approaching in Tucson, it’s crucial to start priming your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few significant features for the comfort and beauty of your Tucson 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 functional and sturdy, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen choices that are trickier to notice both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still accepting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps ward off 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 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 determine which style will suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping prevent the permeation of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Tucson home. This airflow resolution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, ask about all the choices for window screens that allow in as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
  • Cleaning - With effective window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to inqure about the ease of cleaning of dirt and dust from different screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as simple as possible.
