  • It’s Almost Winter – Do I Leave the Screens in my Windows?

    12/5/2016 2:12 PM

    To the dismay of many, cold weather has put an end to opening our windows to let in a fresh breeze. As homeowners prepare their homes for the winter season, you may wonder if you should remove your window screens. For most, it’s simply a matter of preference whether you remove the screens from your windows or leave them in all winter. But if you do decide to remove them, there are a few benefits. It’s a good habit to take your screens out in the late fall and replace them in early spring, using this opportunity to give the windowsills and exterior of your windows a good cleaning. Visually inspect your screens for any signs of wear or damage and perform needed repairs. Store your screens in your basement or garage, preferably away from high traffic areas that could cause damage to them. Before you replace your screens in the springtime, give them a good hosing down and scrubbing before replacing them.
