Aluminum window screens are made using a durable aluminum wire weave material. Aluminum wire is the preferred material for low traffic areas around your home. Windows that are surrounded by plants and shrubs are considered low-traffic areas because these plants act as barriers for small children. The most popular reason home owners choose aluminum wire is that aluminum is one of the best metals that will not rust. However, aluminum wire can easily be marked up with scratches and dents if handle improperly. These custom made window screens can last up to 30 years if handled with care and cleaned properly at least twice a year.
Brite or Charcoal Color Aluminum Wire?
The color of aluminum wire has a visual difference from the outside of your home. Our brite aluminum is obviously lighter in color due to the natural grey color of its natural state. Even though brite aluminum isn't painted, it is still coated in a protective coating that not only protects the aluminum material, but also strengthening the wire weave. This color of finish can at times produce a glare based on the angle and lighting conditions on the window screen. Our charcoal aluminum wire is the absolute best for visibility. We highly recommend this color for windows that you commonly open the drapes or curtains during the majestic spring and summer days.
If you are still uncertain which color of aluminum wire is best for your setting, we recommend ordering an aluminum wire sample.
