With warmer weather coming up in Calgary, it’s crucial to start preparing your home for spring weather, specifically your windows. Window screens play a vital role in helping keep critters out of your home so you can appreciate the spring time. Not only that, but they also provide a few essential features for the comfort and beauty of your Calgary home. When picking the proper replacement window screens this season, here are a few things to think about:
