With warmer weather fast approaching in Albany, it’s imperative to start preparing 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 provide a few essential features for the ease and beauty of your Albany 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 sturdy, but they should also be easy to gaze out of. There are screen selections that are harder to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
- Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most universal material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A great choice 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 match your needs best.
- Ventilation – Window screens can provide a nice breeze while helping prevent the infiltration of critters and bugs into your Albany home. This airflow solution can bring you comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want the greatest ventilation, ask about all the possibilities for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep creatures out.
- Cleaning - With efficient window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the simplicity of removing dirt and dust from different screens that you find to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.
Replacing window screens is essentially like any other home repair; the best way to certify your fundamental comfort is by identifying your personal preferences and needs and finding the option that meets your criteria.
