How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Baton Rouge, it’s crucial to start preparing your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters away so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few important features for the ease and beauty of your Baton Rouge 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 operational and stable, but they should also be simple to see out of. There are screen choices that are harder to see 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 an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked option if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A wonderful choice for window viewing purposes 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 suit your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping stop the permeation of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Baton Rouge home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, inquire about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to question the pros about the easiness of cleaning of dirt and dust from various screens that you look at to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.
