How to Repair a Home Window Screen: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you've noticed insects or debris entering your home, it's time to check for holes or cuts in the window screen. Repairing or replacing a window screen is a relatively easy DIY project that shouldn't take more than an hour. To get started, you'll need a few tools, such as a 4-in-1 screwdriver, awl, cordless drill, scissors, screen roller and multi-purpose knife. The steps for learning how to replace window screen mesh are similar for both wooden windows and aluminum windows.

Use screen repair tools, such as adhesives, grooved rollers and prefabricated patches, to repair a window screen in three easy steps. Wooden window frames can shrink, while vinyl or aluminum window frames can be deformed, causing the screen joints to loosen and the screen mesh to sag. When an adhesive or patch isn't enough, completely replacing a window screen is the most cost-effective and attractive solution. Before you start this project, you should know what the standard window sizes are and the cost of buying screen materials.

Metro Screenworks has all the equipment, tables, and display installation tools you need to manufacture your custom screens. If you have to repair multiple screens, you should consider hiring a local window screen installation professional to save time. The Home Depot can help you find a professional in your area who can provide door and window screen repair solutions. When planning this project, don't forget to close the window in question while removing the screen for repair.

You also need to know what type of material the mosquito net is made of (or what type you would like to replace it with). Mosquito nets are an effective and simple way to keep insects and pests out of the house and, at the same time, allow fresh air to enter the interior. Nobody wants to spend the summer covered in mosquito bites, which is why it's so important that all the mosquito nets on the windows are in perfect condition. Repairing or replacing a home window screen is an easy DIY project that will help keep your home safe from bugs and debris.
