How to Install Custom Window Screens in Old Window Frames

Hurricane Sandy has created a lot of damage along the east coast.
And although window screens seem insignificant versus flooded basements many folks will need to air out their houses by opening windows. If the screen was damaged or blown away you can easily (and affordably) replace them using screen repair kits found at the hardware store.
I wanted to share how I installed a new custom window screen into an old window frame because it might be a problem others will encounter. You can view the post I put together at http://www.homerepairtutor.com/install-custom-window-screens
If you only have time to do one thing you should view the video. It walks you through the installation process and shows a few tips that I've learned over the years of managing rental homes. I promise the video is entertaining. There's also a link to the post on how to make the screen itself. Happy Halloween.

    Thanks Miriam. If it helps just one person I'd be super happy. My heart goes out to everyone along the east coast that got devastated by Sandy's wind and water. I hope you're okay.

    A custom window screen sure would be a good idea for me to install during the summer season. All because how there's so much flies and insects coming into the home from the windows that are left opened. I'm thinking about maybe having someone install several window screens for me and to teach me. <a href='http://www.distinctivesidingandwindow.com/products_services.nxg' ></a>
