Immokalee Screen Window ReplacementTo do screen window replacement right, you’ll first need to cut and pull the old screen material out of the frames. The, trim new screen material to replace it. Here are the rest of the steps for screen window replacement:
- Tape the new screen to the frame. Lay the rough cut screen over the frame and then tape it to the frame so it stays in-place temporarily. This will allow you to more easily install the screen into the frame without being interrupted time and time again.
- Push the new screen into the frame channel. Next, use a screen roller (which are available at nearby home improvement and hardware stores), to push the new screen directly into the channel in the frame. This doesn’t require much force, just a little pressure to push it down into the channel.
- Push the spline into the channel over the screen. Once the screen is inside the channel, you’ll need to run spline over it so it will stay in the frame. String the spline along the frame’s channel and then use the screen roller to push the spline into the channel, over top the screen.
- Trim away the excess screen from the frame to finish. Now, you can remove the tape and then cut the excess screen off, using a utility knife. Exercise caution so you don’t cut into the frame, screen, or spline.
