Why Are Screens Important?
Outdoor screens are important. Very important. Here are a few reasons:
- A barrier against bugs. Screens provide the barrier that keeps dangerous bugs like wasps from entering your house. You don’t want houseflies that might buzz around your outside trash getting into your kitchen. Ugh! A wide variety of possible pests are happy to use your windows as an entryway into your home. Screens are important. Really important.
- Curb Appeal. You want your home to look great when folks visit or pass by in your neighborhood. That’s called curb appeal. And when it is time to sell a home, a real estate agent will often begin with suggesting a replacement of your screens. They understand that dirty or damaged screens will turn off buyers before they even look inside. They think, “If the owners don’t take care of their screens, how do they care for the rest of the house?” Attractive and clean screens make for an excellent first impression. Well-kept screens add appeal to the entire loveliness of your home.
- Water damage. When your screens are doing their job, deflect rainwater. Windows don’t look very well. does when water builds up on them. And when water creeps into your home, it can lead to mold. Mold buildup is a health hazard. Mold can even form right on your screens. That is a good reason to have your screens cleaned regularly.
- Preventing dirt splash. When screens are in proper working condition and well maintained, they help keep windowpanes from getting dirty. Good window screens help to deter dirt from splattering on your windowpanes and glass doors.
- Heat loss. Believe it or not, screens in good working condition help to limit heat transfer. Yes, most of this will be done with your glass coating and the krypton or argon gas between each pane of glass. And it is true that the insulation in your window frames is important. But screens help to “seal the deal.”
