Window and Door Screen Repair
Your window and door screens provide protection from bugs, leaves and more while still letting fresh air into your home. When your screens are damaged or don’t fit well, you may have to choose between enjoying those summer breezes or enjoying an insect-free interior.
Thankfully, most screen repairs are straightforward and affordable, meaning you can get back to having the best of both worlds with minimal wait and expense. An experienced pro can make quick work of repairing or replacing screen frames and hardware or patching and installing screen fabric. While you’re at it, consider upgrading to a screen material that is a better fit for your needs such as metal, pet-proof or solar mesh, depending on whether you need more protection from the family cat or the sun’s UV rays.

Repairing a screen is more affordable than replacement, averaging between $65 and $150 for service. If you need multiple screens repaired, it’s usually the most cost effective to have them done all at once, as rates often fall between $20 and $30 per window. If your screens are very large, such as on a porch or pool enclosure, the job will likely cost more than repairing a typical window screen.
It may be time to repair or replace your screens if you see rips, tears or visible wear in the fabric or if the frames are bent or broken.
Common repairs include patching small holes, replacing screen fabric, repairing hardware or adjusting frames. Repairs can be done to window and door screens, porch screening, patio or pool enclosures and more.
Small holes in screens can often be patched, but it’s usually cost-effective and longer-lasting to have the screen fabric replaced entirely. Replacing screen fabric is the perfect time to upgrade to a better material, such as durable pet screen or solar screen to reduce heat, fading and glare. If your screen frames are bent but the screen material is in good condition, a pro can make adjustments, replace hardware or rebuild the frames to ensure the screens will fit in your windows securely.
An experienced pro can repair or replace your screen easily to ensure you have long-lasting protection from pests and the elements.
