All new Window & Door Screens in Sherman Oaks house

Written by Henry Add Comments
Sherman Oaks home
A resident of  The San Fernando Valley had purchased his new home in a beautiful part of Sherman Oaks, but all the window screens, sliding and swinging screen doors were missing. When I arrived the house looked like this.

Only a few old screens were still installed and he noticed the old anodized (grey) window screen frames were very thin  and flimsy and the screen mesh on them was the old grey mesh  which is pretty outdated. We do not recommend the grey screen mesh on certain homes and this was one of them.

The owner looked us up on the “Yellow Book “Pages and then saw our web page and checked us out online. He made an appointment with me for a free estimate at a convenient time for him. I arrived at our scheduled time and he started taking me around the house and showing me all the window and door encasement’s. I was taking measurements and showing him our catalog and then samples of screen frames, sliding screen doors and swinging screen doors. He decided on the white enamel finish frames for, both window screen and screen doors. He liked the charcoal heavy duty screen mesh which looks great with the white enamel frames.

I wrote up an free estimate for him and he was very pleased with the price, We offer different forms of payment  such as credit cards, checks and even payment plans. He was aware of them before he called us. He was happy to be able to pay with a credit card and apply his 10% discount coupon he printed  it from our web site, ecspecially because new homeowners have a very tight budget for home repairs and improvements.

My web page and Yellow book ads inform our clients that I accept  checks , payment plans (weekly, biweekly or monthly payments ) and credit cards. (visa-mastercard-american express-discover)

Rescreening Window Frames

Rescreening Window screens

Rescreening Window screens

If insects are invading your home, it could be that your window screens are in need of repair. If the screen frame, usually made of wood or metal, is in good shape there is no need for replacement of the entire frame, simply rescreen the frame.

When rescreening, instead of using ordinary metal or vinyl material, consider a dense vinyl mesh. This material will not only keep out bugs but will also prevent a significant amount of heat from the sun from entering your home.

An average-size screen will take only about 15 minutes for a do-it-yourselfer, with a cost under $5.

For a screen with an aluminum frame, you’ll need a pair of needle-nose pliers, a razor knife with a sharp blade and a spline installation tool or spline roller, which looks like a pizza cutter.

In most aluminum-framed screens, the screen material is held in place by a vinyl bead called spline which is inserted into a channel that runs the entire perimeter of the frame. You need to remove the spline in order to remove the old screen material and install the new screen material. Use the needle-nose pliers to grasp one end of the spline, usually found at a corner, and peel it back until reaching the other end. The spline generally is installed in one piece, but due to aging may have to be removed in pieces. Once the spline has been removed, simply peel back the old screen and dispose of it and the spline.

To install the new screen, cut a piece of vinyl screen material approximately two or three inches longer than the frame in both directions. Next lay the screen over the frame and, starting at a corner, insert one end of the new spline into the channel. Once the spline has been started with a steady downward pressure use the spline roller to pack the remaining spline in one continuous piece around the entire perimeter of the frame.

When you reach the corner where you began, use a razor knife to carefully trim any excess spline. Again, with the razor knife, trim the excess screen material at the joint where the spline meets the aluminum frame.

The process for wood is much the same, with a few exceptions. First, while some wood frames have channels like aluminum ones, others do not. Those with channels are handled much like their aluminum counterparts, generally with the addition of a small piece of wood trim to conceal the channel.

Wood frames with no channel rely on staples rather than spline for strength. Once the screen material is stapled into place at the perimeter, the staples should be concealed with a small piece of wood trim. After installing the trim with small finish nails, use a razor knife to trim the excess.
