Easy Ways to Improve Your Home Comfort in Washington DC, DC: Retractable Screens

Published on

As a homeowner, you have a number of things constantly buzzing in your mind. Whether it’s adding to the never-ending list of tasks or thinking about replacement windows, one thing never changes– you always want to stay comfortable.

When you start talking about a comfortable home, though, what are your most common thoughts? Air temperature? Fans? Style and decorations maybe? Well, why not add retractable screens* to that list?

Sure, it’s not the most common thing to think about when considering home comfort, but when you’ve already purchased replacement windows to help bring flair into a room, or your entire home, the perfect screen is like the cherry on top.

Screens have advanced in their ability to provide light while also keeping out insects and giving an unobstructed view. And with products like the Rolscreen®, you’re able to roll up the insect screen to seamlessly integrate the technology into replacement windows or doors.

One of the best features of retractable screens is that they are hidden when not in use. As a homeowner, that provides you with more light than you get from a window using a traditional flat screen that most people in Washington DC own. It also means that there is no need to store the screens in the off-season when they aren’t needed.

While retractable screens typically vary based on your replacement windows, be sure to do your research when it comes to integrating them in to your windows because there may be options to add the screens and make it seem as though they’ve always been there. For example, the Rolscreen offers an option with an all-wood interior that can be painted or stained to match your home’s interior trim.

Pella is known for its 90-year history of making innovative products, and their signature product, the Rolscreen was the first of many Pella innovative solutions. So it’s safe to assume that the team at Pella Windows and Doors in Washington DC knows a thing or two about retractable screens. Stop by the Washington DC showroom to take a look at all of the options available for your replacement windows.
