Is your screen door damaged? Ours was rotten and falling off the hinges. So, we replaced it with a new vinyl door from Lowes. I was nervous but it was a super simple process! Here's how to do it yourself.
How to Replace a Screen Door
Here you can see some of the dry rot on our old wooden door. We chose vinyl for our new door which was a little more expensive than wood but should not rot. We live in a humid climate so wood rot is a big problem here.
Use a screwdriver or drill to unscrew your old door. Unscrew the door from the hinges, gently set it down, then unscrew the old hinges from the doorway.
It helps to have a second person to hold the door so it doesn't fall over and bop you on the head.
Attach your new hinges to the doorway and then to the new door. You may use the same holes or you may need to drill new ones.
Drill crews through the hinges into the new door. It helps to have a second person to hold the door in place until you get a few screws in.
Take your time to be sure you get it straight and level.
Add the desired hardware to either side of the door. This may or may not have been included in the purchase of your new door.
Enjoy your new screen door.
