Having screens on your windows has many benefits for the comfort level in your home. Window screens keep out bugs and dirt, reduce heat gain inside the house, and they lower the levels of UV radiation penetrating through windows.
The problem is, window screens get damaged, bent, torn, or taken down and misplaced, making the windows in a home or business less useful.
Benefits of Replacing Window Screens
Getting your window screens replaced makes your windows more functional, and this makes your home more comfortable and livable.
- When you have screens on the windows, it’s easier to get fresh air into the room while keeping out bugs and dust.
- When windows are closed, screens reduce how much heat is transferred through the glass, keeping the temperature in the room even and reducing heating and cooling bills.
Window screens are made with several different materials, including:
- Shade cloth
Fiberglass mesh has the added advantage of reducing UV rays by up to 75 percent. UV radiation causes fading and damage to curtains, carpets, furniture, and artwork inside the home.
Fiberglass screening also slightly lowers light levels inside, and this material can be hard to see through from outside, adding to privacy in the room.
Aluminum screening is stronger than fiberglass, and this can be an important consideration if pets or young children come in contact with the screen.
