General Information about Window Screens

Window Screens can be made with several types of screen material or fabric. Different color choices are available depending on the type of window screens. For insect protection, we offer standard fiberglass window screens, aluminum window screens, and solar insect screens for double duty of keeping out the bugs and helping block heat.

Aluminum screen frames around the outside edges hold it all together. The frame choices include several common sizes as well as color choices of white, bronze, and silver.

Although some areas of the country may have some common sizes, there are none considered "standard size" or type window screens. All orders for window screens are custom made to your specifications. They may be half screens for single hung or horizontal slider windows, full size window screens for double hung or wooden windows or casement window screens that attach on the inside.

Fiberglass Window Screens

The most common type of window screens are made with insect screen material made of vinyl coated fiberglass. It is standard on most new construction homes and apartments. It also makes a great economical replacement window screen on older homes. Fiberglass is a very forgiving fabric that springs back into shape if pushed on or bumped accidentally. The vinyl coating assures that your window screens will last longer exposed to the weather elements.

Found on many older homes, aluminum window screens are durable, resists rust and sagging. The aluminum screens have a protective coating that prevents corrosion and strengthens the mesh. Great for matching existing aluminum window screens or upgrades. The black color aluminum screen has been known for it's good outward visibility among standard type insect screens.
