Different Types of Window Screens

As spring approaches you will definitely want to open your windows and let some fresh air into your home. What you don’t want to let into your home are insects, inclement weather, debris, and unwanted and harmful sunrays. Window screens can make the difference in being able to enjoy your home and your windows.

Here are a number of different styles of window screens that will add value to your home’s windows.

Fiberglass Window Screens

Fiberglass window screens are the most common type of screen as they are very durable and cost effective. Finding the proper type of window screen for your home depends on many elements including: climate, if the window get’s a lot of sun, and how often the window will be open or closed.

Fiberglass Retractable Window Screens

Window screens are meant to keep outdoor elements outside –but on those beautiful days when you want even more sun, or an unobstructed view, retractable window screens can provide the option of protection with the freedom of choice. Retractable windows can be made from many different materials, including solar and insect screens. An added benefit to retractable windows are that they can last longer than other types of window screens, as they are protected from wear when rolled up, extending their useful life!

Pet Screens

Do you have a furry friend who enjoys using window screens as a scratching post? Pet screens are made from a heavy-duty, vinyl coated polyester which is stronger compared to other screen materials. Pet screens are an excellent way to help avoid having your family pet continuously destroy your patio door screens!
