If you are gong to be starting your Spring cleaning early, you might be interested in checking your sliding screen door tracks. I did a patio screen job today in Thousand Oaks and I noticed neglected tracks that just will not allow the patio door to slide properly due to the debris. Most rollers need a little attention if you want to be held hostage in your own home.
If the dirt on the track or the wheels are not the problem then a replacement is your next choice. The heavy duty frames I custom make are the highest quality products available and I also offer a ten years guarantee at no extra charge. They come with metal handles and metal, top of the line lock latch. Steal ball rearing rollers that are fully adjustable for raising and lowering the door and a beautiful baked enamel finish that will not fade, chip or oxidize.
There are a few things you need to check on your porch screens in order to do a proper screen repair. For the aluminum frame on the sliding screen doors to slide good it will need to have no roller hardware problems. The best are the copper wheels, they are long lasting and usually have sealed bearings which don’t allow dirt from the backyard pool area to oxidize them.
Next you will need to check the fiberglass insect screening. When working with mesh on sliding doors pet screen is what I recommend, this stuff is so strong you can barely cut it with a knife. Just make sure the spline is on tight and almost nothing will rip it. Try not to use the regular wire mesh used on windows as it was intended to be a bugscreen and not to be used by dogs,cats,kids and people touching it.
