Easy Ways to Improve Your Home Comfort in Bloomington, IL: Retractable Screens

Published on

As a homeowner, you have a variety of things constantly swirling in your mind. Whether it’s adding to the never-ending list of to-dos or thinking about replacement windows, one thing remains constant– you always want to be comfortable.

When you start thinking about a comfortable house, though, what are your most common thoughts? Air temperature? Fans? Style and decorations maybe? Well, why not add retractable screens* to that list?

Sure, it’s not the most common thing to think about when considering home comfort, but when you’ve already purchased replacement windows to help add design to a room, or your entire home, the perfect screen is like the cherry on top.

Screens have made improvements in their ability to provide light while also keeping out insects and giving an unobstructed view. And with products like the Rolscreen®, you’re able to roll up the insect screen to seamlessly integrate the technology into replacement windows or doors.

One of the nicest features of retractable screens is that they are completely out of view when they’re not being used. As a homeowner, that gives you with extra light than you would receive from a window using a traditional flat screen that most people in Bloomington are used to. It also means that there is no need to store the screens in the off-season when you aren’t using them.

While retractable screens normally vary based on your replacement windows, make sure you do your research when it comes to integrating them in to your windows because there may be options to add the screens and make it look as though they’ve always been there. For example, the Rolscreen offers an option with an all-wood interior that can be painted or stained to match the interior trim.

Pella is known for its 90-year history of making innovative products, and their signature product, the Rolscreen was the first of many Pella innovative solutions. So it’s safe to assume that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Bloomington has strong expertise about retractable screens.
