Parents know that open windows mean free passage for insects to enter the house. Whether they are flies, mosquitoes or cockroaches, they pose health risks to their children. But does that mean they need to shut the windows and doors all the time?

Window fly screens are a simple and affordable solution to keeping insects away. Also referred to as insect screens, these Sydney flyscreens provide protection from insect bites and infections. Quality flyscreens, once  installed prevent insects from entering the home, without the need to shut all doors and windows.

While  cheaper fly curtains and Velcro insect screens are also available, they do not last long enough and get damaged easily. On the other hand, if you invest in retractable fly screens, they don’t just serve their purpose well – they look good too.

Before you go and buy fly screen doors or fly screens for windows, here are some basic factors you should first consider:

  • Types – There are various types of fly screens and you have to know which one you prefer. There are fixed screens, sliders, retractable screens, drop screens and magnetic screens to name a few.

  • Sizes – Whether you are going to install it on your door or window, you are assured that there is a fly screen size that would fit on them. Make the measurements or have a professional come over to your home to measure your door or windows’ dimensions.

  • DIY fly screens – If you are on a really tight budget and you don’t care how your screens look, there is always an option to do it yourself. These options don’t last long and can be expensive in the long run.

  • Manufacturers and sellers – Finally, make sure that you are contacting a trusted retailer or manufacturer of window and door components such as fly screens. They may be a little more expensive, but you will have the reassurance that the quality of their products is top-notch.
