This time of year, it’s nice to keep the windows open and take advantage of the crisp fall air. But if you have pets, leaving the windows open can be a source of worry and frustration.
If you don’t have any window screens at all, leaving your windows can leave you worrying whether or not your furry little Houdini will escape to the outdoors, exposing him or her to danger. Worse still, you may worry that your pet will injure him- or herself falling out of the window. If you do have a window screen, you may have experienced the frustration of finding that your cat or dog’s claws have torn through the screen. (Cats, in particular, seem to love climbing on screens—no matter what other toys you may have given them!) Screens can cost upwards of $20 a piece, and when this happens multiple times, the costs of a replacement screen can really add up.
What can you do to keep your pets safe while also saving you window repair costs?
Pet screens for your windows and doors are specifically designed to fix this very problem. They are several times thicker and much stronger than the mesh in your typical screen: claws, teeth, and even beaks won’t tear through the mesh. Cats can even climb on the screen without damaging it.
You may never have to replace your window screen again, meaning that the screen will likely pay for itself in the long run.
In addition, pet screens have several side benefits: because they are made of finer, more durable mesh, they let in fewer insects. And because they are thicker, they also let in less light—so they help your home stay cooler in the summer.
When it comes to your pets, you’d do just about anything for them. They are furry little members of your family that you want to keep happy and healthy. Pet screens can help you keep them indoors while also giving you peace and mind and a fuller wallet.
