While intact window screens may be the very last thing you notice about your home, a torn, shredded, or sagging screen will certainly start to draw your attention. As humans, we want everything we own to look nice and be functional, but a damaged window screen is no longer either of those two things.
Because instead of filtering out leaves, dirt, and debris like they once did, or stopping pests from making their way inside, your damaged window screens are now failing to keep the elements outside where they belong. And they’ve become a huge eyesore over time, noticeably lowering your home’s curb appeal.
Of course, up to this point, you had no idea how to repair a window screen, and you wondered how much this little problem was going to cost you.
But fear not! Because no matter how it happened—from your cat climbing your window screens to a bird flying directly into them—we’ll walk you through all the steps you need to fix or replace a window screen on your own with less time commitment and fewer out-of-pocket expenses than you were expecting.
