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

  • Transparency – Not only should your window screens be useful and sturdy, but they should also be simple to gaze out of. There are screen selections that are harder to identify both from inside and outside your house, creating the illusion that the screen doesn’t exist for your curb appeal, while still allowing light and air into your home.
  • Style – There are a variety of materials and weaves for screens that different people use. The most common material for replacement window screens is fiberglass because it lasts longer and helps ward off rusting or corroding. Aluminum screens are also a well-liked option if you have small children or animals, because their material is tougher to tear.
