4 Signs You Need New Window Screens

Window ScreenAs a homeowner, there are many different elements of your home you need to worry about. Window screen maintenance is usually lower on a homeowner’s list of things that they need to take care of. Screens play an important role when it comes to your windows. They can help take care of your family and reduce your overall utility bill, so it is important to regularly check your window screens. You may find that you will need repairs or replacements.

Here are four signs that your window screens need to be repaired or replaced.

Visible Damage

The most obvious sign that it’s time to repair or replace your screens would be if there are visible signs of major damage. If the screen mesh is out of the frame, if there are holes from bugs, or any large or small tears, it’s time to replace them. These signs of damage mean that your window screen can no longer do its job sufficiently. That’s when you know you need to call the professionals at Doctor Screen!

Shiny Screens

Almost everything in your house an age limit, and window screens are no different. Window screens are constantly exposed to sun and other weather elements, making the lifespan a bit unpredictable. Depending on the climate you live in, after some time, the screen will begin to turn shiny and be more prone to damage. If your screens are becoming shiny, it’s time to get the screen replaced.

Difficulty opening and closing windows

A common sign that your window screens are near the end of their lifespan is if you’re having trouble opening and closing your windows. Although, it could be the windows causing the difficulty, there is also a good chance that the screen is damaged and is causing the same problem.

Increase in noise

Window screens are designed to keep bugs out, but also to limit the amount of outside noises that can be heard inside of your home. If you have an increase of noise in your home, that likely means it’s time for new window screens.
