Before you start shopping for window screens, it’s important to understand the benefits of installing window screens and the different types offered. This guide will provide all the information you need to select the right screens for your home or business windows.
Benefits of Installing Window Screens
Window screens do a lot more than offer an aesthetically pleasing look to your home or business. They enable you to keep your windows open without the risk of bugs invading your property. This, in turn, creates a fresh, natural airflow through your home.
Screens can serve as a protective barrier against dust, pollen, allergens, and harsh weather conditions. And depending on the type of screen installed, it can help to reduce overall energy costs, UV damage to furniture, and glare. Screens can also brighten a room with natural light or act as a privacy shield.

Stay Healthy & Keep The Bugs Out With Our Insect Screen Mesh
Flies, mosquitoes and other insects may sometimes seem trivial however they are worth taking seriously. Flying and crawling pests often bite, sting, and they carry disease or worse. For example, the common house fly can land and easily spread dozens of pathogens which can infect humans and animals.
They have a habit of landing on decaying material including animal waste and then they try to visit you and your family in your home. Here they love to feed on human food, land on plates and counter tops and all of this makes for the fast spreading of germs. In fact, flies are known to spread Tuberculosis, Cholera, Typhoid, Anthrax and more. As you can see, it’s important to keep them away and this is why window and door screens are important to the health and well being of you and your family.
If flies do not bother you then consider the Mosquito, Bee, Wasp and Cockroach. Each of these can also carry debilitating diseases. Examples are the Zika Virus, West Nile Virus, spreading of Salmonella and the stinging venom from Bees and Wasps can also be deadly. You do not want these critters in your home, they needs to stay outside and away from you and your family!
Protecting your family against biting, disease carrying insects is important and it is easy to do. Look at the options and choose a window screen and insect screen combination that fits your budget and the aesthetic needs of your home. Don’t let the bugs bite!
