The Porch Screen Repair & Replacement Process
If you’re looking to install a new porch screen, the process typically starts with replacing the posts that support the screen and hold it in place. The next step is to install pin-up strips made from a durable material like powder-coated aluminum to provide the framing for the screens.
The screens themselves may consist of stainless steel, aluminum, fiberglass, copper or brass. Each of these options offers certain advantages and disadvantages. For instance, fiberglass mesh is relatively inexpensive, protects against sunlight glare and won’t crease. On the other hand, stainless steel screens provide better protection against storm and impact damage and offer increased corrosion resistance. The stainless screen, however, does pinch and visually does not age as nicely as fiberglass. There are even extra thick screen that can help withstand some of the abuses that pets can do.
A porch screen repair job may involve replacing one or more worn or damaged posts or strips, or a section of a torn screen.
What Are the Benefits of Porch Rescreening?
Whether you want us to repair your existing screening or conduct a complete replacement, you will experience several benefits once the job is complete:
- No pests: If your porch has become a haven for insects, you’ll be able to reclaim it and begin to enjoy it again. A new screen can also keep out larger wildlife like raccoons, bats and opossums.
- More privacy: A screen filled with gaping holes or that is no longer attached to the frame makes it easier for passersby to see what’s happening on your porch. While people can still see through a fully intact screen, it does provide a much more efficient privacy barrier.
- Year-round use: A new screen will provide better protection against the elements, enabling you to enjoy your porch a little longer throughout the year.
