With warmer weather coming up in Bloomington, it’s imperative to start priming your home for spring weather, especially your windows. Window screens play an important 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 ease and beauty of your Bloomington home. When selecting the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to ponder:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be useful and stable, but they should also be simple to look out of. There are screen choices that are harder to see both from inside and outside your house, building the illusion that the screen is nonexistent for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are an assortment of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it works longer and helps inhibit 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 fantastic option for window viewing purposes is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade based on your need for it.
