The replacement windows on your Irvine, CA home do a lot. They let in natural light, help control the temperature inside your home, and provide extra security. Replacement windows are also key for ventilation. When you open a window, you’re allowing fresh outside air to circulate in your home. However, if you’re not careful, you’ll also be letting in pests, dirt, dust and other unwanted guests. That’s where window screens come in.
Window screens are imperative for helping your replacement windows do their jobs safely and effectively, and for keeping your home comfortable and safe. There are lots of different kinds of window screens, each made of different material. You can get window screens made of polyester, aluminum, nylon, metal wire, fiberglass, or even copper or stainless steel. There are some window screens that are stretched into a wooden or metal frame, and yet others still that roll away into a pocket when not in use.
With all the different kinds of screens you can get, how do you choose the best one for your replacement windows? A good place to start is by looking into the most advanced and helpful kind of screen: the flexible window screen.
Unlike traditional window screens that are difficult to move, rigid and easily damaged, flexible window screens are built to be damage resistant, lightweight, easy to install, and easy to maintain. Flexible window screens are also stylish and attractive as they come in a wide range of colors and never have to be painted.
Flexible window screens snap right into the replacement window frame pocket for increased visibility. They offer great benefits for any home including:
- Extra Protection – Flexible window screens help keep out insects, pests, leaves, debris, dust and dirt just like regular window screens. However, because of their unique design they also keep out external elements like snow or rainwater.
- Sunlight and Heat Regulation – Traditional window screens are too thin to offer any protection from the sun, while flexible window screens have a thicker design that reduces heat and sunlight getting into the home. This helps keep the home cooler and reduces sun damage on carpets and furniture. Some flexible window screens can also minimize UV ray entry into the home while enhancing privacy.
- Better Ventilation – Their unique design also makes them even better at allowing in ventilation while keeping out unwanted outdoor elements.
- Durability – Flexible window screens are incredibly damage resistant and durable. They’re much less likely to tear or dent when hit, which allows them to last for years and make them an ideal investment for any home.
