The Benefits Of Installing Next Generation Window Screens

With winter in the rear view and spring approaching, it’s time for homeowners to start thinking about embracing the months of sunshine that are to come.

There is no better way to do this than by revitalizing your windows, which are your home’s beacons for natural light and play a huge role in creating a vibrant indoor environment.

So how does one go about revitalizing their windows?

Glad you asked!

Here at we were wondering the exact same thing so we decided to defer to Holly Attfield of Ontario Screen Systems Inc, Ontario’s distributor of innovative next generation window screens known as Phantom Screens.

The Benefits Of Phantom Window Screens

Just like the name suggests, the beauty of Phantom window screens is that you barely realize they are there because they don’t obstruct your view.

“Phantom window screens are superior alternatives to old-style framed screens in a number of important areas.” Attfield explains.

Studies show old-style frames prevent around 38% of the natural light from entering your home.

What’s worse is they block your view and may contribute to increased condensation too.

“Phantom window screens won’t disrupt your view because they retract when not in use.” Attfield explains

Ease Of Installation:

You may be holding back from upgrading your window screens over fears that it will be a laborious job.

The fact of the matter is that Phantom window screens can be retrofit to any type of window and are appropriate for use with every type of window  from casement to tilt n turn windows.

Cost Savings

“[There are] government rebates that apply to homeowners who replace their windows with more energy efficient ones. That will lead to a lot of homeowners replacing their windows this year, and getting a rebate.  A great investment to spend that rebate on is better screens.” Attfield suggests.

Phantom window screens do a better job of letting the sun in when you want it to be there, and keeping it out when you don’t.

This translates into consumer cost savings via reductions in heating and cooling expenses.

Quality Craftsmanship With Modern Aesthetic Appeal

Phantom window screens are made with a resistant extruded aluminum and the frames are selected to match to your window trim.

“A stainable wood veneer can also be applied for those who are seeking a different aesthetic and want their window screen to match their custom wood windows.” Attfield explains.

A variety of mesh options are also available and the Phantom product line also includes screens for doors, patios, balconies and decks.
