With warmer weather right around the corner in Des Moines, it’s imperative to start setting up your home for spring weather, specifically 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 coziness and beauty of your Des Moines 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 functional and stable, but they should also be easy to look out of. There are screen choices that are more difficult to see both from inside and outside your house, generating the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
- Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most widespread material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a beneficial possibility if you have small children or animals, because their material is more difficult to tear. A fantastic 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 determine which style will suit your needs best.
- Ventilation – Window screens can offer a nice breeze while helping avoid the permeation of critters and insects into your Des Moines home. This airflow solution can lead to comfort and ease during the change in seasons. If you want the utmost ventilation, request about all the options for window screens that allow 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 inqure about the easiness of removing dirt and dust from different screens that you are considering to make the cleaning process as straightforward as possible.
