SCREEN DOOR REPAIR

Screen doors are great to keep the bugs out, but wear and tear is unavoidable - they don’t last forever and eventually the screen will get a hole or tear in it.

But you don’t need to buy a new door; you can easily fix the screen door yourself.

What you need is a standard size roll of flyscreen, a screwdriver, a utility knife, a spline roller and some flyscreen spline.

First remove the screen door, lay it on a workbench or a table.

Next you need to remove the damaged screen. Get a screwdriver and find the place where the spline begins, loosen it with the screwdriver and then rip it out all along the edges. The old damaged screen will come out with it.

Roll out the new flyscreen across the doorframe, take the spline and start by lay it in the groove, approximately 2cm from a corner. It is helpful to have a cup of soapy water standing by to dip your spline roller in, it makes rolling the spline in just that little bit easier.

Start at the edge and roll the spline down. When you come to a corner use the screwdriver to wedge in the spline around the corner and then continue with the spline roller.

Once you have gone all the way around the edge of the door and you meet up with your starting point trim off the spline with your utility knife.

Finally, trim off the excess flyscreen away from the door. Use your utility knife and run it slowly and carefully along the edge of the inside of the door.

All that is left to do now is hang your door again.
