4 Benefits of Using Magnetic Window Insect Screens Along With Door Screens

Many property owners are blighted by insects and bugs that find their way indoors. Most homeowners in this situation will fit a regular insect mesh for their front door. Only a few will bother to screen off the windows; even then, it is usually done by adapting some mesh to loosely fit over the windows. This approach is usually unsuccessful, as it offers no real deterrent to the insects at the window.

One solution is to fit magnetic insect screens on the windows. This article looks at some benefits of using this system along with a regular door screen in order to prevent insects from entering a property.

It's Versatile

Some properties have unique or unusual window designs and shapes. It can be difficult to get the shape of the screen right to be fully effective when attempting to cover the window yourself. Magnetic window frames come in easy-to-assemble kits, allowing you to properly cover your windows regardless of their shape or design. A frame is provided in the kit, which you cut to size. The screen is then laid over the screen and carefully cut as well. This allows any window to be fitted with a magnetic screen.

It's Easy to Open & Close the Windows

One of the major benefits of the magnetic system is accessing the actual window while the screen is in place. When you fashion a home made screen yourself, it can be easy to forget that you will need to access the window to close it again. Removing the screen every time you want to open or close the window can be a pain. A magnetic screen peels away from the frame with ease, allowing you to adjust the window without any added hassle.

It's Easy to Clean

The magnetic screen is easy to maintain as well, as it can be washed or cleaned as needed. No big unclipping or unscrewing effort is required; simply peel the magnetic screen off of the frame, wash, and hang back when it's clean. Being able to do this allows you to easily maintain the screen, allowing it to look like new for longer.

It Allows Fresh Air into Rooms at Night

The magnetic screens can be added to bedrooms, so that on hot and stuffy nights, the screens can be added onto their frames and the window can be opened to allow in cool air. Some people try to place netting over the windows, but this is not particularly effective. Insects can either bite through or fly under this. A solid magnetic screen will resist all types of flying insects, preventing them from entering your room at night while allowing cool air into the room.

If you live in a hot climate, consider complementing your regular door screen with magnetic window screens. Contact companies like Phantom Screens Perth to learn more.

Sitting Areas by Windows: Balancing Comfort and Airiness

Hi, my name is Fern, and I love small sitting areas by windows. I love window seats, small writing desks that overlook great views, quiet lamp-lit corners near windows overlooking water and almost any other window arrangement you can imagine. However, when decorating by windows, you have to be careful. You need to balance coziness and the airiness of the window. You also have to look for windows that are weathertight so you can enjoy being near them in all seasons. If you want to read about windows and how to create sitting areas around them, please explore my blog. I hope it entertains, informs and inspires you.
