From time to time our team encounters also damaged window screens that need to be repaired, replaced or have new ones installed. A torn screen can be a pain, especially because it can let bugs, debris, and dirt that would otherwise be kept out into your home. However, there is no need to purchase an entirely new screen and frame because the screen netting itself can simply be replaced. Replacing a small patch in a screen takes almost as much time as replacing the entire thing, and with just a few tools and some new screening, the old screen can be removed from the frame and a new one can be put in. If you want to do it yourself, here are few steps to follow. Then you can simply replace the screen in the window or door, where it will appear perfect and new.
Take the screen out of the door or window frame and lay it on a flat surface, such as a large table or the floor. Tape each edge down so the frame holding the screen does not move while you work. Be sure to only put tape on the outer edge of the frame so you can remove the spline (the rubber gasket that holds the screen in place) and the screen netting along the inner edge. Use a screwdriver to help release the plastic, rubbery spline that holds the screen in the metal frame. Once you are able to grab an edge of the spline from one of the corners, you should be able to gently pull the spline out of each side of the screen frame, using the screw-driver to pry it away from any difficult areas. Use the screw-driver in the corners as needed to help you pull the spline out. Remove all of the spline along the inside of the frame. At this point, you should be able to use the screwdriver to pry one corner of the screen netting out and grasp onto it tightly. Give it a tug, and pull along the edges of the screen where it meets the frame—the screen netting should come out rather easily. Follow along all four edges to remove the entire screen netting. Lay the new screen over the metal frame evenly. Trim it with scissors about 6 to 12 inches longer than the outer edge of the screen, just to be safe. Next, complete the process you just did, but backwards. Make sure the screen is flat and even before you move on. There should be no kinks or folds. Use that same flat head screwdriver to tuck the screen into the screen frame right along one of the corners. Do this with the extra screen netting poking out over the edge—we will trim it later. It is more important that the screen is installed flat and evenly. Only start with that one corner, as the spline will help hold it tightly in place in the next step. Now that you have the screen in place in one corner, grab your screen spline tool and start at that corner where you first installed the screen. Put the new spline in place on top of the screen, and begin to roll and push the spline into place in the screen frame. Follow the edge of the screen with the tool, inserting the spline and ensuring the screen is even. Go all the way around the inside of the frame until you reach the same corner you started at. Trim the spline and tuck it inside that last corner of the frame with the screwdriver. Take the box cutter or utility knife and cut the screen netting along the edge of the frame, just on the outside edge of the plastic spline you just installed. Be sure to cut on the outer edge and not the inner. This will trim away that excess edge of the screen, but the spline will hold the screen in place. Replace the screen and screen frame back in place, the same as you removed it. It should be as good as new. Tools needed: masking tape or painters tape, flat head screwdriver, screen netting (usually sold in a roll), scissors, roll of plastic window spline, screen spline tool, box cutter or utility knife.
A similar process is required if you would like to replace the screen in your patio door. You can quickly and easily replace the screen in your patio door without needing a lot of tools or construction skill. Remove the door from the hinges so that you can lay it down on a flat surface. If this cannot be done because of the type of door, you can still proceed with the remaining steps; removing the door just makes it easier to replace the screen. If your hinges are stubborn, slip a screwdriver under the edge of the bolt and lightly tap with a hammer to loosen. The spline is the rubber like material that holds the screen in place inside the frame of the door. You will need to lift it out using a utility knife or other flat edge. If it is still pliable and comes out in one piece, you should be able to use it with the new screen. If not, you can buy a roll of spline material at any home improvement store. Once you have removed the spline, the old screen should be easy to pull out. While you will most likely discard the screen, this type of mesh material does work well to keep leaves and debris out of your pond during the fall and winter, so you may be able to recycle the material. Lay the new screen over the opening so that there is equal amounts of extra material on all sides. Using your spline roller (easily obtainable at any hardware or home improvement store), press the screen into the grooves. Start with the long side of the screen, and follow by pressing the spline in along that side to hold the screen in place. Repeat with each remaining side, being sure to pull any extra screen material tight as you get to the last edge. Cut out the excess screen material with your utility knife so that there are no rough edges. Re-hang your door. Use a hammer to gently tap in bolts if they are stubborn. The sit back and enjoy the cool breeze – without the bugs!
If you need help, we are here for you at all times. We are a door service company and there are many kinds of door we service, few of them listed below.
- Front Doors – are often the first thing your guests will see. Your front door is like a first impression so you want it to be beautiful and welcoming, but also a deterrent to any of the bad guys looking to break in. The door will also come with many different security options and you will be able to choose what kind of locking mechanisms you want to have. Front doors are also very adaptable to home security systems and surveillance units. We’ll have plenty of choices for you.
- Security Screen Doors – are the thick iron screen doors that are placed in front of your front door or back door. They are often just as secure as any door in the house and very difficult to break. You’ll be sure to discourage intruders with a security screen door.
- Custom Sidelights – are the sections on each side of your front door that are usually there for an enhanced look and to add natural sunlight into your home. We recommend incorporating a security alarm system when you have sidelights, or use faux glass that cannot be broken for access.
- Custom Double Doors – are exactly as you would imagine. Instead of one door, you have two. Sometimes one of the doors is stationary or set in a fixed position while only one side is used for entry. Though a single door is usually sturdier and therefore more secure, double doors can still provide a high degree of elegance while providing top security as well.
- Storm Doors – are very similar to security screen doors and are usually incorporated to allow for a second layer of security as well as protection from harsh weather.
