Window Screens – You’ve Got Options!

Let’s face it, screens can take a beating over time. As a homeowner, it’s not a question that your window screens will eventually need some attention. It’s important to replace your window screens when they are damaged or torn. Not just because a worn-out screen leaves a bad impression, but because once damaged, a window screen fails to do its job of protecting your home from bugs and other pests.

Here are a number of different styles of window screens to choose from:


Fiberglass is one of the most common materials used for screening material. It’s less expensive and provides excellent visibility and strength, allowing you to enjoy the scenery more clearly without sacrificing comfort. So, if you’re looking for a durable option at a reasonable price, your best choice is to go with a fibreglass mesh screen.

Retractable screens

A retractable screen is spring-loaded, which means it retracts into the window’s head when you don’t need it and slides out when you do. It locks in place when it’s out so you don’t have to worry about the screen blowing in the wind.

Pet-resistant options

If you own any pets, it’s probably safe to say that they’ll find a way to damage your window and door screens. No matter how high your windows and doors are, your cat will get there and scratch the screen. To avoid any tears to your screen caused by your pets, look for vinyl-coated polyester materials. These screens are heavier than most products available and your pet’s claws don’t stand a chance against them.

Solar screens

Solar Window Screens are helpful when trying to reduce the sunlight entering a home. Solar screens can also provide some privacy for the interior of your home during the day. If you are looking for a way to save a little money and create some privacy at the same time, solar screens might be your answer.
