Replacing or upgrading your home’s window screens is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to not only improve the comfort of your home but also the aesthetics. We at Metro Screenworks offer a variety of window screen products that do just that. However, one of our most popular products is our complete window screens. Today, on the Metro Screenworks blog we are going to showcase our complete window screens.

What Are Complete Window Screens?

Our complete window screens are pre-assembled fixed window screens. What is a fixed window screen, you might ask? Well, it’s what many people have in their home: it’s a screen that is semi-permanently installed within a window frame. It can, of course, be removed but it is made to sit within the window frame all of the time.

Why Buy Our Complete Window Screens?

Certain home improvement store chains offer pre-assembled window screens like we do but in most cases, they only come in a few sizes, meaning if they don’t offer an exact match for the size you need, your window screen mostly won’t function as it needs to. Most homes need custom size window screens to fit their home’s windows.

That’s why we offer custom window screens to match your exact measurements. What’s more, we provide other made-to-order options besides just custom sizes which we will discuss further below.

Additionally, we are a family-owned-and-operated business local to the Denver area for over 40 years.

We offer free pick-up options for our local customers and we custom package every shipped order so that your window screens will arrive in the same pristine shape as they left our warehouse.

How Custom Is “Custom”?

When we say we offer custom window screens, we mean it. In addition to custom size window screens, we also offer options for:

  • Window screen material
  • Frame color
  • Frame thickness
  • Hardware
  • Center cross bar

If you don’t see the customizations you need offered when you order your complete window screens from us, contact us! We would love to help you get exactly what you need.

Replacement Window Screens That Do More

Most replacement window screens come with standard fiberglass mesh which will keep the bugs out. However, we offer more mesh options so you can get a little more from your screens for a minimal additional investment.

Window Screen Material Types Options

Though we offer more than just the options below, these are the most popular mesh types that we provide for our complete window screens.

Charcoal Fiberglass

Charcoal colored fiberglass mesh comes standard in our complete window screens. Fiberglass offers insect protection and decent visibility; it is also the most economical buy.

Pro Tip: Black colored screen provides the most visibility versus other colors like silver (mill), gray, and other colors.

BetterVue & UltraVue

BetterVue and UltraVue are also known as invisible screen as they provide the most visibility of all the screen mesh types. BetterVue provides a little more durability than UltraVue. However, we suggest UltraVue for the most visibility and use in window screens. Additionally UltraVue also offers:

  • Provides insect protection
  • Allows more air in while you see your view best
  • Water-shedding technology
  • Dirt-resistant to prevent grime build-up
  • Improves light transmittance in low-E glass windows
  • Frame color available in almond, beige, black, bronze, silver, or white
  • GREENGUARD-certified
  • Ships within 5 to 7 business days
  • Made in the USA

Shop UltraVue or choose BetterVue when you shop complete window screens.

Super Screen

Super screen is 3x stronger than fiberglass mesh and is a PVC-coated polyester material. It is designed to provide extra durability against wear from pets, children, tree branches, and wild critters. Other benefits include:

  • UV-tolerant to retain color and strength
  • Will not flake or fade
  • Weather-resistant
  • Pet-resistant
  • Weather-resistant
  • Offers insect protection
  • Ships within 5 to 7 business days

Shop super screen complete window screens.

*This screen can not prevent pets or children from falling out of windows if they lean against the window screen

Pet Screen

Pet screen is 7x stronger than fiberglass screen and is also made out of PVC-coated polyester material but has thicker strands than super screen. Pet screen, as it is so aptly named, is best against the wear and tear of pet paws, claws, and teeth. Though pet screen offers strength, it does reduce visibility, for this reason we usually suggest pet owners buy super screen for their windows and pet screen for screen doors — if visibility is a concern.

Shop our complete window screens and choose pet screen.

No-See-Um Tiny Mesh

No-see-ums are a type of tiny insect but this term can refer to all tiny insects like gnats, sandflies, and other insect pests that are small enough to fly through standard size mesh. Tiny mesh has a smaller weave or it has smaller holes in the mesh to keep these small bugs from making their way through.

Shop complete window screens and choose no-see-um tiny mesh.

Solar Screen

Solar screen can not only protect your interiors from sun damage but can help keep your home cooler while providing daytime privacy. Here are all the benefits solar screens can offer:

  • Available in 65%-95% sun protection
  • Offers day-time privacy (At night, with your lights on, people will see inside)
  • Can increase energy efficiency of home
  • Reduces glare
  • Can create a barrier during colder months (increasing energy-efficiency)
  • Provides excellent visibility
  • Mildew- and fade-resistant
  • Pet- and flame-resistant
  • 10 year warranty

Charcoal Aluminum

Aluminum screen is stronger than fiberglass and so can provide more durability, excellent airflow, and great visibility. We offer aluminum for our complete window screens with a charcoal black finish for the best visibility and reduce glare. If you need a pet-resistant screen, we suggest choosing from super screen or pet screen as aluminum screens can dent with pet wear.

AllergyGuard & Pollen Screen

Allergy Guard and Pollen Screen both offer pollen and dust filtration benefits to help with allergies. Allergy Guard offers additional benefits such as

  • 3-layer air filtration of fine dust, pollen, bacteria, smoke, viruses, and more
  • Blocks 95% of rain and water spray to help prevent water damage and mold
  • Corrosive-resistant
  • Provides insect protection
  • 50% thinner than a standard window screen
  • Blocks 69% of UV light and 50% of infrared light
  • Easy-to-clean with just a rag and water — no soap required
  • Screens are made within 1/16" of the dimensions you provide
  • Ships within 5 to 7 business days

Keep in mind that AllergyGuard has reduced visibility and is best installed in places where the view is less important.

What Is the Best Replacement Window Screen Material?

With all of these options, it may be difficult to choose which type of window screen mesh is best for you. One of the best ways to decide what you need is to determine if durability (or other benefit) is more important than visibility.

Durability Vs. Visibility

Most of the window screen materials we offer can be placed in one of two categories: screens that offer durability or or ones that provide visibility. Though screens such as UltraVue that offers the best visibility is made to last, it won’t withstand constant heavy wear and tear like super screen which is one of the most durable screens we sell. Decide which screen offers the most value for you and keep in mind that you don’t have to buy the same screen material for every screen in your house.

More Options

Two other complete window screen designs that we offer include our Lip Frame Window Screens and the Standoff Screen with Wicket Door. These screens are constructed differently than our other complete window screens to meet window frame or operation needs but the same customizations are available.
