Window Screen Repair Thousand Oaks

When a window screen looses it’s tab, you will have a very hard time taking the screen in and out. All window screens need to have at least a couple of tabs for an easier removal, if not you will go for the frame and this is the worst mistake you can do for your screen frame.  The screen needs to be straight in order for it to do it’s job.  If the frame is not square, bugs will get in.

How often should you repair or change you tabs, as often as you should change you screen mesh, every 7 to 10 years for best results, look and condition.  When a screen gets rescreened all old tabs should get replace with new ones, and you will have new tabs for years to come.  If you have further questions, please call me.

Patio screen door installation in Thousand Oaks

The way to get the best results when installing a patio screen door is to first make sure you measure right, don’t get a sliding screen door that is too big or too small.  Next on the list is to vacuum and clean the track, make sure there is no dirt gravel or rocks on there because you will have problems with the screen rollers sliding properly. Make sure each individual roller is lubed as-well.

After you cleaned the track, lubricate both top and bottom.  Now you are ready to install the screen.  The tools needed are a phillips screw driver and a flat head screw driver.  Grab the screen and put it in on top first then push the bottom in making sure the rollers are centered on the track.  All screen doors have four adjustment screw holes to get the door straight, make sure you use them to balance the door.

Time to fix bent screen door

Is your back yard patio screen door bent? Most clients have sliding screens that are bent right at the middle of the frame, where that black plastic handle is. This happens when someone walks into it, they don’t see it and BAM! We can help. There are two things that can be done in this situation.

  1. Repair the screen door bent frame
  2. replace the frame for a new one

The frame can actually be straightened out a bit and will work good. It will hold up for a few more years, it will hold the screen mesh in place properly and if the rollers are good, it will slide good too.  Sometimes fixing is not possible and in this case we will have to replace the screen all together. Most

Handle

When the frame bends the handle usually does not work properly anymore and also may need replacing.  I carry most parts and do most jobs onsite, so whether you are thinking of doing the job yourself or planning on calling me, I hope this information will help you a bit.

Screen repair tips of the day

Patio doors can sometimes be a pain and the solution is to get them to slide good. How do we do this without wasting to much time or money. You must first start with looking at the aluminum frame, hardware and rollers to see if the are all in good shape. Copper wheels are recommended for a smooth glide, if you have old plastic roller they might drop and stick.

Next make sure your screen has a good strong fiberglass wire mesh to last, remember that these screens in pool areas usually get a lot of use and you don’t want to have the light bugscreen used on windows because the y just will not last. What I offer recommend id petscreen instead of regular insect screening,it is very strong. You almost can’t even cut it with a knife. Just make sure that when installed the spline is nice and tight and you will not have any problems with it for many seasons.

We have been repairing screen doors for years but it looks like lately it’s been in Thousand Oaks.  Most of the work we do is repair and being mobile is a big convenience for homeowners.  Fixing a screen is not easy, it may seem easy but it’s not.  For a sliding screen door to slide good on the track and not fall off you need to know how to adjust it right.

Do you use your patio screen a lot? yes is what all my lients say and followed by “It’s the door I use the most”  do you realy want to try and fix something that is used 10 20 times a day if not more?  Not to metion the kids pushing on the mesh and cat’s and dogs jumping and crawling on them.  When it comes to screen doors they need to be in good working condition and slide right.  Why do you think most people hate the way their patio door works?  Because they don’t slide good and they don’t think they are important enough to fix them properly or replace the screen so they don’t have to suffer day in and day out.
