How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather right around the corner in Indianapolis, it’s crucial to start preparing your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can relish the spring time. Not only that, but they also offer a few important features for the coziness and beauty of your Indianapolis home. When choosing the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to consider:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be useful and stable, but they should also be easy to look out of. There are screen choices that are more difficult to notice both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that various people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps inhibit rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a good choice if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A fantastic option for window viewing reasons is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade depending on your need for it. The team at McComb Window & Door can work with you to decide which style will match your needs best.
  • Ventilation – Window screens can give you a nice breeze while helping avoid the intrusion of critters and creepy-crawlies into your Indianapolis home. This airflow ventilation can lead to comfort and composure during the change in seasons. If you want maximum ventilation, inquire about all the options for window screens that admit as much air as possible while helping keep insects out.
  • Cleaning - With professional window screens also comes window screen cleaning. Don’t forget to ask about the easiness of removing dirt and dust from different screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.

Replacing window screens is just like any other home repair; the top way to guarantee your ultimate comfort is by determining your personal preferences and essentials and finding the selection that meets your criteria.
