Published on

With warmer weather fast approaching in Kingston, it’s important to start priming your home for spring weather, particularily your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few important features for the coziness and beauty of your Kingston home. When picking the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be functional and stable, but they should also be easy to gaze out of. There are screen options that are trickier to see both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen is not there for your curb appeal, while still letting light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that many people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it endures longer and helps prevent rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked option if you have small children or animals, because their material is harder to tear. A great possibility for window viewing intentions is Pella’s Rolscreen® Retractable Screen that rolls up and down like a window shade contingent on your need for it.

This airflow solution can lead to comfort and composure during the change in seasons.
