Add or Repair Window and Door Screens this Spring 

Screens are an essential part of your home, but they often go overlooked until there is a problem. This spring, take the time to check your screens for damage and repair or replace them. Whether you need to add a few new screens or do some repairs, here are some benefits to considering a screen replacement in your windows & patio doors this summer.

Allowing Fresh Air to Circulate While Keeping Pests Out

This spring, adding or repairing window and door screens will help keep pests out while allowing fresh air to circulate and cool your house. Insects and other pests can be a nuisance and, in certain situations, even harmful – so it’s crucial to keep them out of your house.

Lower the A/C Bills

Custom window screens can help increase air circulation in your home, saving you money on your cooling bill. You can make your home more relaxed and more comfortable in the summer by installing or repairing screens this spring. Additionally, you can lower your home’s carbon footprint by using the breeze instead of the A/C.

Make Your Home More Comfortable

Adding or repairing window and door screens can result in a cooler interior temperature, less glare, and less pests. Additionally, by allowing the breeze inside, you can reduce the heat in your home, making it more comfortable overall.

Reduce Noises in your Home

Not only do window and door screens allow fresh air in your home, but they also allow you to keep your home cooler during the warmer months without relying on noisy fans to move the air.

A Better View

Adding or repairing window and door screens might help to improve your home’s view when you upgrade to a fiber screen. You will be able to monitor better what is going on outside and be aware of any threats if you have clear views out your windows and doors. This is especially crucial if you reside in an area where many animals or children could sneak into your home without your knowledge. You may contribute to your family’s safety and security by having clear views.

Types of Window Screens & Screen Doors

There are a few different types of screens that you can use for the windows and doors, including:

· Metal screens are the most common type of screen and can have aluminum, steel, or other metals. They’re usually the least expensive option and can be easily cut to fit any size window or door.

· Fiber screens – These screens are from a woven material that’s coated with PVC or another type of resin. They’re stronger than metal screens and can resist tearing and damage from pets. Tighter weave insect screens with an even clearer view are also available in some areas.

· Pet screens – These screens are from a unique vinyl coated polyester material that is stronger and heavier screen, making it much more tear resistant – up to 7x stronger than a regular screen.

How to Choose the Right Window Screen or Screen Door

When choosing a window screen or screen door, there are a few things to keep in mind:

· The type of material – You’ll need to decide if you want a metal, fiber, or pet screen. Consider the climate you live in and how often you’ll use the screens when determining the best option for your home.

· The size of the opening – Make sure to measure the width and height of the space before you buy a screen. Most screens are a tight fit to fight pests, so use the existing screen as a pattern wherever possible.

· The opening style – Some window and door openings have special features, like arches or grids. Make sure to get a screen specifically designed for the type of opening in your window.
