Why remove window screens before winter?

As winter approaches, it’s a crucial time for homeowners to think about removing window screens. At Solution Thermo, we understand the significance of this task in preserving the longevity of your screens. This article will highlight the benefits and offer tips for storing and reinstalling them in spring

Outdoor window screen: benefits of removing them before winter

Gain more natural light

Enjoy maximum natural light by removing your screens during winter. This also prevents snow from getting trapped between the window and the screen.

Extending the life of Your window screens

Removing outdoor screens in winter prevents them from deteriorating when they’re not in use. Exposure to sun and weather elements can fade or dry out the mesh, making it more fragile over time. For patio door screens, this also prevents damage from trying to open them when they might be frozen.

Indoor window screen: Why remove them before winter?

Preventing moisture buildup and condensation

Removing indoor screens is even more crucial than outdoor ones. By doing so, you prevent moisture from getting trapped between the screen and the interior glass, reducing the risk of condensation, frost, and consequently mold. This is especially beneficial for windows in less ventilated and more humid rooms, like bathrooms, where maintaining good ventilation is key.

Tips for storing window screens

It’s wise to mark the location of each screen when removing them to make reinstallation easier in spring. We recommend storing them in a dry place. If space is limited, consider areas like beside the refrigerator, in a closet, or behind large furniture.

Struggling with storage space for your screen door? Ensure to position it on the fixed side of your patio door to minimize use during winter, greatly reducing the risk of damage.
