How to repair a screen door

 

So you need to repair your screen door. Don’t stress, this one’s a breeze. You got this. 

1. First things first, let’s get that old screen out of the frame. Start by removing the old spline, that’s the PVC vinyl strip in the groove on the back of the door that holds the mesh screen in place.

2. Pop it out with a screwdriver, then simply pull it out from the groove all the way around

3. Make sure you remove any handles from the screen door

4. Once you’ve done that, throw the old spline away, and you can go ahead and toss the old screen too. 

5. Now would be a good time to grab a paper towel and clean out the groove. Give the whole door a wipe while you’re at it. 

6. Now grab the roll of new screen and spread it out over the door. Make sure there’s at least an inch of extra screen on each side of the area where you want the screen to go. Now cut the screen off from the rest of the roll.

7. Find the spline and pick a corner of the door to start at. Take the spline, and press it into the channel using the spline tool. Simply roll the spline tool along the spline to press it into the groove and hold the mesh screen in place.

8. When you come to the last side, pull the screen tight to remove any wrinkles before you press the spline into the groove. 

9. Once you’ve got the spline in place, it’s time to use your utility knife to trim away the excess screen. Place the knife into the groove at a 45 degree angle, making sure not to cut the spline. 

10. Now your door is ready to be reinstalled. 

Told you, you got this.
