Why You Should Add A Door Screen To Your Home

Isaiah Brewer

Are you tired of bugs getting into your house whenever you open the front or back door? Would you like to see what your kids are up to outside while still maintaining a closed door? You might be in the market for screen doors. Here are just some of the different ways that a new door screen can benefit your family and your home. 

Keep Insects Out of Your House

Do you enjoy keeping your front or back door open on a nice day but you have noticed an issue with bugs or insects getting in? A new screen door could be the solution to your problems. A screen door will block flying insects from entering your home while still allowing you the benefits of having your main door wide open. You can choose to open the main door while maintaining peace of mind because you'll know that you won't have to go running for the fly swatter.

Keep Energy Costs Down

Spring is the perfect time of year to have a screen door because the temperature outside will start warming up but you might not be ready to put your air conditioner on just yet. By allowing in a cool breeze from outside, you can cool your home but without running up your electric bill. You can also likely repeat this idea in early fall when it's no longer hot enough to warrant the A/C remaining on. A new screen door could pay off in the form of lower energy bills in the months and years to come.

Enjoy the View 

Perhaps you just want to see what's going on in the neighborhood or in your own backyard from time to time. A screen door can allow you to quickly glance outside and see what's going on but without leaving the entrance to your home wide open. A screen door can still be locked just like your regular door so you can still maintain security for your home even while the main door is open. This setup could allow you to enjoy the view or keep an eye on something specific like your kids or your dog.

Boost Your Curb Appeal

Adding a screen door to your home is a good way to change the look of your home's exterior. The door tends to be a focal point for your overall aesthetic and installing a higher-end screen door could boost your overall curb appeal.

Learning About Historical Window Replacement and Materials

Hello, my name is Valencia. Welcome to my website about windows. I want to share information about sourcing period-specific windows for your historical home. In many locations, historical societies will only issue renovation permits once the homeowner proves the materials are accurate to the build date of that structure. The windows must look and function exactly as they would new in that historical time period. My site will contain information about ordering, installing and maintaining these windows. I hope you will use the information on my site to keep your historical home in great shape through the decades. Thanks for visiting.
