How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Portsmouth, it’s important to start priming your home for spring weather, specifically 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 provide a few important features for the comfort and beauty of your Portsmouth 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 sturdy, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen choices that are more difficult to identify both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist 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 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 option for window viewing reasons 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 offer a nice breeze while helping stop the permeation of critters and insects into your Portsmouth home. This airflow ventilation can bring you comfort and peace of mind during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, request about all the possibilities for window screens that let in as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
