Replacing and repairing screens is one of the most popular jobs for Kansas City window contractors this time of year. As the weather gets nicer and we begin to open up our windows on a regular basis, we suddenly notice all the snags, rips and tears in our window screens where unwanted pests can infiltrate the house. People who own cats have the luxury of free bug control from these fearsome predators, but others must resort to stalking flies down with swatters — which, of course, is no fun at all. There are so many better ways to spend an afternoon.Let All-Weather Windows, Doors & Siding take care of your window screen problem this spring.
Are Your Window Screens Bugging You?
If you have a very small hole in your screen or you need to buy some time while waiting to buy all new window screens, you can ask us to simply repair your existing screen. Some holes can be mended using epoxy or clear caulk. Other holes need to be fused with another section of screen that can be bought in a kit for as low as $4. This inexpensive task does not take long, but if you’d rather not do it yourself, your local window contractors are always happy to help.
We Replace Old Screens Too!
It’s not good to have gaping holes in your screens for long. These temporary fixes do not generally withstand the elements or the pests for very long. A brand new window screen might cost anywhere from $30 to $50. Now that you’re shopping around for a new window screen — probably the first time in a while — you’ll be happy to know there have been modern advances that make the screens of today much nicer than past screens. For instance, Andersen offers the TrueScene insect screen that provides 50 percent more clarity to enhance your view.
Why Call All-Weather Windows, Doors & Siding?
You may be thinking, “Well this sounds simple enough. Why bother calling contractors just for this?” Many people call contractors to work on their screens to avoid being cut by jagged metal ends on the ripped up screen. Others like the satisfaction of getting something done right the first time, without having to spend their precious time on menial tasks such as this. A Kansas City window contractor can also run a full inspection on all your windows to let you know what sort of other maintenance you might consider.
