Window screens don’t last forever, and certain situations bring to light the fact that it is time for a replacement window screen. It could be because you just moved into an old house that has never had new screens before and they are too dirty to clean. It could also be because your cat decided that it liked your window screens as scratching posts better than his actual scratching post.
Now that you know it is time for a replacement window screen, you have the opportunity to choose one that will work better for your current lifestyle.
Easy to Remove Replacement Window Screen
Keeping your window screens clean makes a difference in how your home looks. Dirty screens will make the outside of the home look dirty, even if everything else is very clean.
If keeping your screens clean is important to you, purchase a replacement window screen that is easy to remove. There are many screens out there that require a lot of pulling and pushing before you can get the screen out. All of this effort can damage the frame of the screen making it hard to get it back into the window and even harder to get out to clean again next time.
For an easy to remove replacement window screen, look for ones that have simple latches that allow you to easily remove them.
You may also want to consider a replacement window screen that has a clearer look to it, like the TruScene Insect Screen available through Renewal by Andersen. These types of screens are made with micro-fine mesh that allow them to be easier to see through and at the same time also makes the screen look less dirty than regular window screens.
Sturdy Replacement Window Screen
When choosing a replacement window screen because of animal damage, don’t replace it with another cheap material screen. Instead purchase a screen that is made of sturdier material than the last screen that was damaged was made from. Purchasing another cheap screen will just continue you in the cycle of having to purchase one new screen after another.
If you are unsure as to the best screen to purchase for your particular situation, talk to a professional. A Renewal by Andersen representative will be more than happy to assist you in choosing the replacement window screen you need to withstand your living situation.
