Some cheap window screen brands include Andersen, W.B. Marvin, Fleetwood Windows & Doors and Screens & Things. Andersen's insect screens are perfectly sized to fit within that company's window frames. In addition to keeping small pests out, the screens also have an anti-glare finish. W.B. Marvin sells a range of adjustable window screens that extend to fit the width of a window installation.
Fleetwood's window and screen combinations feature an extruded aluminum frame that can be anodized and made from thicker material than many standard window screen frames to resist damage over time. Screens & Things provides an option for shoppers to design custom-made screens in any size or shape necessary.
Window screens are available for most sizes and styles of window configurations. Even vent windows can be used with screens, as vent windows typically open via a hand crank. The primary purpose of a screen is to block unwanted creatures and weather-strewn debris from entering a building while still allowing the exchange of airflow, although they can protect the window from damage from hard objects. They also keep a room in direct sunlight from growing too warm, and some solar screens are manufactured to reduce ultraviolet penetration while increasing privacy.
