Window screens are good for more than just letting in a breeze while keeping out bugs. They can also be effective at keeping pollution and allergens out. Screens vary in visibility depending on the fineness of the weave and the screen material. Common screen materials include bronze, stainless steel, and copper. Fiberglass screens, sometimes known as “solar screens,” offer an energy-efficient design by preventing light and heat from entering the home. Pet-friendly screens are extra durable to prevent damage caused by pets. Carefully measure your windows to ensure that you purchase screens that either fit or can be adjusted to fit. Installation will vary in complexity, with some screens requiring screws and other tools, while others require very little assembly and installation.
