Window screen repair for your home


It seems that a lot of the older windows are just not holding up anymore, after all some windows out there are over 40 years old. Today we have vinyl windows that are energy efficient and reduce the noise. One of the problems with the new vinyl windows is the plastic corners on the window screen frames, they just aren’t strong enough and they don’t last. On the other hand with the older aluminum windows most of the screen have good metal corners but are just to old to re-screen, so changing the frame on these screens is a must.

Replacing the Screens

New screen frames come in different colors to choose from so what we recommend is that you choose a color that matches you window encasement color for a better match or the color of your old screen frame so they look the same. New screens make your windows look years younger or better, actually the only thing you see in a window if the window screen mesh is old is the old screen.  It doesn’t matter if the windows are new or old when a screen mesh is old it turns gray and brittle and blocks your view making it easy to see. When a screen is new you should not see it, thats how clear you want you screen to be, unnoticeable.

Do your windows really need to be replaced?

You would be surprised what new window screens and new sliding screen doors could do for your windows. starting with the look, it makes a house look much better than is all the windows have gray old screens that can be seeing from the street.  You do not want to be able to tell that there are screens on windows, if  you can it’s time to do some home window repair and rescreen your windows A.S.A.P

Old Screens?

Window and door screens don’t last forever, you do have to rescreen your windows and doors at least every 8 to 10 years.  Waiting more than this just means your screens are old. When a screen is new the mesh is clear and you cant tell the screens there and it wont have any glare from the sun that will be noticeable from the inside of the house.

Window rescreening with old frames

Working in Westlake Village in a very nice area I came across a window rescreening job that just kept growing.  The client called because he had a few window screen he needed to have rescreen but he did not know which ones he wanted one.  What I do in this case is come over and give you a free estimate, I look at all the screens with the client and pick out the ones that need new screen mesh the most.

The screen repair process is simple, i have to asses the situation looking at the frame condition then the corners to see if they are plastic or not and if the will hold up with new screen.  Replacing the screen material is the cheaper way to go when thinking about screen replacement if possible but thats not always the case. Sometimes frames are cracked, bent or even missing and if they are then the only option is making a new custom screen on the spot.

Screen Door in Thousand Oaks

It’s very frustrating when your screen door  does not slide good on the track. It can be one of two main problems homeowners in Thousand Oaks, one is that it’s fall off the track or rocks from side to side getting jammed,  grinding and drags across the sliding door.  Two is that it the encasement makes it stick and it wont move properly, in any case I will fix the problem. There are a few options and some may depend on the amount of money you are willing to spend.

Repairing the screen is the  first option, and I start by checking the frame to make sure it will slide smoothly and hold up, next I look at the top and bottom rollers to make sure the are in good working condition.  The wheels may look good but if the are rusted, oxidized they may have to be replaced.  Finally I look ate the screen mesh material to see if it need to be re screened, if it does you have choices of Pet screen, and regular charcoal fiberglass.  I do guarantee the way the mesh is put on the frame, it should hold plenty of weight so it does not come off the screen frame.  After all the options are looked at by me, I offer the client all the options and if possible and the client agrees the job will be done on the spot.

Replace Screen Door Thousand Oaks

When it is time to replace the screen door you need to know that their is sliding doors with plastic rollers and some with metal ones.  The wheels glide on the bottom and top tracks are what hold the door in place and this stops it from falling off track or getting stuck.  If the frame is to big then this to can be a problem with the way it slides.  The screen frame needs to fit good, you should have a half inch gap on the top of the track and on the bottom.

We can fix most problems by changing the rollers of the old frame and in most cases this takes care of the problem, unless the frames is bent.  If your door screen is warped or broken, sometimes it can be fixed but we must look at it first.  For us to come out give us a call, we come to you and all our estimates are free of charge.  My areas are!

Screen Repair

Should you repair your screens or replace them?  The big question is often influenced by your wallet and and this can affect the look of your home and the function of your screens.  For starters fiberglass window screens last for about 10 years in good shape but for some people they last 20 years, just not in such good shape.  You should only replace the frames if they are missing, lost, bent or broken, if not rescreening the frame is fine and will cost less.

Another big item when screen fixing is the plastic corners, the yellow cracked corners that need replacing.  I specialize in changing these and putting on new ones and for only a fraction of the cost.  I do not use plastic on new window frames, I only use metal corners and they last for years without having to change them out.  For any service you need do yourself a favor and save yourself from getting into a mess, call me I’m a mobile service and would be happy to come to you.  My areas are!
