The Differences Between Sun and Bug Screens

Bug or insect screens are only found on windows that open and usually only cover half of the window.  The most common bug screens here in the valley are black in color and are made of a light screen mesh consisting of a woven glass yarn that is coated with a black or gray vinyl.  Black is the most common color; if your bug screens look brown or tan, that means they are very dirty!  If they have a silvery white appearance that means they are worn out from sun oxidation and need to be re-screened or replaced. They are held in place with spring loaded clips and fit into special channels in the window frame.  Sometimes glues and resins can secrete from the inside corners of the window frame bonding the screen in place; this makes it a challenge to remove and extra care must be used to remove the screen for cleaning without damaging it.  It can be even more difficult to remove bug screens from vinyl frame windows because the vinyl frame of the window tends to slightly warp and window manufactures don’t leave enough clearance around the frame of the bug screen.

Sun Screens always cover the entire window and are found on all types of windows including patio sliding doors.  Here in the valley they are usually present on the southern and western exposure windows; although some homes have them on all windows.  They are made of a heavy woven PVC coated polyester yarn that comes in a variety of colors. Black and Brown colors are the most common; other colors consist of Gray, Desert Sand/Stucco, White and Beige.  On the positive side sun screens can block out as much as 95% of the suns rays lowering your energy bill as well as protecting your window coverings, furniture and carpet from fading.  They can also extend the life of your double pain windows by helping to prevent the seals of the Glass Insulated Unit from leaking.  One the negative side they get very dirty and are very time consuming to take down and clean; and unless you know what you are doing, your screens will end up looking worse after you try to clean them.  They will also obstruct some of your view depending on how heavy of screen mesh you have.  After about 10 years or so, sun screens begin to fade and get discolored; darker screens become lighter, and lighter screens become darker.  After 15 to 20 years, nothing is left but a silvery white mesh and screens need to be re-screened or replaced.   For a proper installation, sun screens are attached with screws and clips that need to be drilled into your window frame; most window manufactures will void your warranty if a hole is drilled into the window frame.  If you are considering installing sun screens, you will also need to get approval with your home owners association.
