The Benefits of Window Screens

Are you in the process of pricing new windows for your home? If so, you may want to do the same for screens. While these are not required, and some people rarely use them, it is something to consider nonetheless.

Here are some of the many benefits associated with the use of window screens:

1. Lower the cost to cool your home. Rather than use your air conditioner every time the temperature heats up, you can open the windows and turn on ceiling fans. This will give you a nice breeze that cools your home.

2. Let the air in, keep the bugs out. If you open your windows, but don’t have screens, there is no denying that bugs will make their way inside at some point. Is this something you want to deal with? Sure, you will get a nice breeze, but the tradeoff is flies, bees, and other types of bugs entering your living space.

Note: screens keep out debris as well.

3. Reduces sunlight. Did you know that some window screens are designed to reduce sunlight and heat gain? Not only does this lower your cooling costs, but it also helps reduce sun damage to floors and furnishings.

With so many benefits of window screens, it is something to consider no matter if you are buying new windows or are happy with those that are currently installed.

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

Brian N.

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.

"I recently hired Pond Roofing to check out a leak. They did a great job coming in on time and to troubleshoot the issue. Their pricing was competitive and overall service was excellent. I’m very happy with their work."
