FAQs About Window Sunscreens
At some point in time, property owners (of a house or building) considers adding sunscreen to their windows. A sunscreen window is a specialized window screen that is added to an entire window for maintaining their privacy and blocking sun rays from hitting the window’s glass.
Here we answer some frequently asked questions about window sunscreen:
1. How Long Does Window Sunscreen Last?
The life of each window sunscreen varies, depending on the quality and material it’s made of. Modern versions of window sunscreens tend to last for 15 – 20 years. The contemporary ones are more reliable and long-lasting than the traditional ones, such as fiberglass that hardly lasts for a couple of years, usually up to 2 – 4 years.
2. Do Window Sunscreens Wear Out?
Eventually, all types of window sunscreens fade out. However, some do in a short span, while others take years to wear out. Window sunscreens tend to knock out quicker when they receive intense sunlight frequently. Areas that receive less annual sunlight experience window sunscreens to be more durable.
3. Do Sunscreens Damage Windows?
No, sunscreens can’t damage your windows because they do not come into contact with windows at all. Sunscreens are put over windows with clips and screws. This way, they do not come into contact with windows at all, so to think that sunscreens can damage windows is presumptuous, nothing else.
4. How Do I Take Care of Window Sunscreens?
The best thing about window sunscreens is that they are quite easy to maintain. All you have to do is wash them with soap and water every few months to remove all the dust and debris. You don’t require any special window cleaner or additional material to clean your window sunscreen.
5. Are Window Sunscreens Removable?
They absolutely are. You can remove window sunscreen at your own will, whenever you want. All you need to do is remove all the screws and traps from your sunscreen. Many people take their sunscreen off during winters to allow sunlight to penetrate into their homes. However, the choice is yours. You can have sunscreen all year round.
6. What Is the Best Sunscreen Material?
The best sunscreen material is considered to be fiberglass. It keeps out harmful UV rays as well as pesky bugs. However, some people find aluminum to be the best sunscreen material as well. Of these two, fiberglass is said to be better than aluminum.
