We live in a busy world and our list of things to accomplish each day is long and sometimes unrealistic. So, in our fast paced life, who really has time to stop and even notice that our window screens are worn? But, just like stopping to smell the roses, you should pause to notice your screens.
Window and door screens add value in many ways. Having a screen on your windows and doors help keep out pesky bugs including mosquitoes. As you are aware, the West Nile and Zika Virus are both carried by mosquitoes, and a suggested method of preventing a bite, is screens on your home.
Sun control screens work by absorbing solar heat and dissipating it before it reaches windows and doors, therefore cutting the cost of your electric bill. Security Screens offer safety and security while still allowing airflow. Pet resistant screens are designed to put up with the “ruff” treatment your pet may dish out from time to time.
Are your windows and/or doors bare? If you answered yes, you should look into screens. But, if you already have screens, do you know when you should get them replaced?
Regularly maintaining your screens, in direct sunlight should be replaced every 3-5 years otherwise, in a shaded area could be replaced every 5-7 years, some may last longer.
There are times that require you to take action instead of waiting for your screens to age to replace. For example:
- A tear in the screen
- Loose screen, spline coming out
- Screen turning white from brittle fiberglass
- Broken pull tabs
- Bent frame
- Discoloring of the frame
