Finding the right window screen is important

Window screen prices and selection

Window screen costs matter to most people on the hunt for a new screen. The cost of the screen itself and the cost of installation should be considered before you make a purchase.

T& C Glass has experts on window screens, and we are here to share some tips that mean finding the perfect screen at the right price.

Know your options for window screens

Start by considering what sort of window screen you want.

There are solar screens, which are designed to keep out air flow and UV light. These are great for improving energy efficiency, since they allow you to keep a window open without letting in heat during the summer.

Some screens are designed with pets in mind. Ask about the material in your screen and whether it is likely to be a hazard for pets that like to claw or bite their way through window screens.

Consider the material for your screen.

Fiberglass is a common material for window screens, though some manufacturers use aluminum or copper. Your choice of material will affect the overall cost and ventilation of your screen.

Window screen pricing

Buying standard sizes can save you money.

If you live in a home or apartment with a common window size, your options will be open. If you show up at a hardware store looking for a prebuilt screen, make certain you have the exact height and width dimensions of your window.

Custom screens can improve window efficiency.

In other words, if you want to have an expert build you a custom screen, you can have it built to include the latest window screen material for filtering out UV rays, or to help let in more light.

Unique window sizes usually require custom screens.

Finding a screen that is already built to fit an especially large or oddly shaped window is unlikely. Get in touch with a custom window screen builder if it is time for a new screen in one of these spaces.
