3 Guidelines For Buying Security Screen Windows

When our family quickly began outgrowing our home, my husband and I couldn't decide whether to add onto our current home or move into a larger one. One day, when we were checking the local area looking for "home for sale" signs, we saw a sign we couldn't take our eyes off -- there was a large plot of land for sale for a great price in a great location. We had never thought of building our own home before, but after a little research, we realized that it wasn't as costly as we thought, especially considering the great deal we got on the land. The entire process was a learning experience, but thankfully, the building team was very pleasant and helpful. We now love our new home, and I am excited to share our experience on our new blog. I also plan to post many planning and construction tips!

If you are looking to safeguard your building the best that you can, one of the best investments you can make is in a set of security screen windows. By selecting the right set of screens, you'll be able to out intruders and keep your window intact. If you would like to learn a little bit more about these screens and how they can serve you, read and factor in these tips below.  

What are some of the main advantages of security screen windows?

Since you are in the market for some security screen windows, be sure that you understand the benefits of this purchase and installation. For example, did you realize that some 95% of property break-ins involve a measure of force? It makes it much more difficult to apply this force when you have a screen in place that bears the brunt of someone attempting to break your window. The security screens also give you the opportunity to add some aesthetic appeal to your windows, while giving them a sense of uniformity when you install screens on all of them. This installation will make your property more appealing, which can increase its value as a whole.

How can I get a security screen window installation?

It is important that you do your best to bring in a window professional who can sell you the right size and type of window screen, while also installing it for you. Touch base with these contractors in order to ask for proof of their license and liability insurance policy. It is also critical that you shop for the best price on the screen so that you do not overpay. You might expect to pay in the range of $200 per screen for a small window, all the way upwards of $5000 for an entire patio screen enclosure.

What should I know about getting this work done?

First of all, be sure that you get a warranty on any screen installation that you purchase. This will give you the chance to replace it if something goes wrong with the screen during the warranty. Take advantage of repair and maintenance so that you do not develop large holes in the screen which will weaken them. Take the time to care for your windows as well, so that you have added measures of security.
