Whether you’ve just moved in or you’ve just noticed, if you’re missing a screen for your window or patio door, you’re in for a scavenger hunt. Unfortunately, all screens are specific to the manufacturer in their parts or they way they slot into the product. Some patio door screens are top hung and some have bottom rollers. Some window screens clip in, some are spring loaded, some have latches that push into the frame from the inside—just to name a few.
If you find that you’re in need of a screen, it’s best to know the manufacturer or dealer of the window or door. Once you find out who made your product, the hard part is over. You can go directly back to the manufacturer or a dealer in your area with all the information you’ve gathered and ask for a new screen.
However, if you still have the frame of the screen, they can always be re-screened. Bring the screen in to us and we will reuse the existing frame by removing the old spline and replacing the torn or damaged screening with brand new screen. Often times, that can be easier than totally replacing a screen.
