How to Choose the Right Replacement Window Screens

With warmer weather coming up in Ketchum, it’s crucial to start preparing your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play an important role in helping keep critters out of the house so you can enjoy the spring time. Not only that, but they also deliver a few significant features for the ease and beauty of your Ketchum 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 durable, but they should also be simple to see out of. There are screen choices that are harder to identify both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a range 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 ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A great 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 suit your needs best.
