Oak Park Window Screen Repair

If your window screen frames are in good shape but the actual screen mesh is old and torn, you might need to either rescreen them, or repair them. We rescreen frames all the time in Oak Park and are always in the area.  If your aluminum screen frames are in ok condition there is no need to replace the frames.

The Screen mesh we use is the charcoal fiberglass 18×14 fiberglass screen mesh material, when we rescreen the spline and tabs are replaced as well.  We like the window screens to fit the way they should, not only do they need a tight and snug fit but also, you need to be able to take them in and out easy and without having to be a screen pro like us.

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.
