Replacing your patio door screens

Before replacing your patio door screen you should make a check list to make sure you will have everything you need. When looking carefully at screen you might notice that it may just need repairing it. First check the screening if it looks clear and you see no holes, rips or tears, then you now the screen part is ok. If mesh is old and you see it is turning gray then you will need to replace it.

If you are going to do your own installation you are going to need some basic tools, a screw driver for roller adjustment and tucking in the spline that holds the screen.  Also need is a spline roller,  This rolls the screen into the frame. When the screen doors finished and ready for install , make sure the rollers are adjusted and retracted into the frame. This allows more space in between the top channel and bottom track for easy installing.

Important aspects of screen repair and pet screen

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.
