Home Window Screen Benefits
Technologically advanced screen materials and designs offer distinct advantages over the window screens found in older homes.
- Affordable: The expense of window screen installation is balanced by the energy savings you'll realize on your heating and cooling service. In the summer, you may lower your indoor temperature by as much as 9°c.
- Clearer view: Newly designed window screens allow for a much better view.
- Curb appeal: From the outside, your window screens will appear attractive.
- Easier cleaning: You'll be impressed at how easy these technologically advanced window screens are to clean.
- Less dust and dirt: Solar screens are effective at filtering the airborne dust and dirt that gets into your home.
- Environmentally friendly: The balance and harmony of nature and sustainable living is foremost on everyone's minds these days. Sun screens allow the outside air and sunlight indoors while the mesh filters UV rays and blocks pesky insects.
- Protection against fading: Bare sunlight can fade draperies, fine furniture and carpeting. Solar sun screens filter the harmful rays while allowing the sun's light and warmth into your home.

Types of Screens
- The new sun and solar screens' ability to regulate air flow while blocking airborne pollutants and insects depends on material density and colour.
- Charcoal and gray colours remain popular for window screens.
- Dark screens reduce the kind of glare that makes television and computer screen viewing difficult. We often recommended these screens for offices, dining rooms and entertainment rooms.
- High-performance screens use a metallic-propertied mesh fabric.
- Light-coloured screens control heat better than dark screens and allow more light to enter your rooms.
