Window Screens Wheeling WV

Spline comes in several widths. If you are not buying a frame kit, I'd recommend buying the spline in a multi-pack. A multi-pack contains spline in several widths. When you get home with all the materials, you'll then know for sure you have the correct spline.

How to Build a New Window Screen

How to Build a New Window Screen

If you have a missing or severely damaged window screen, you probably need a new one. Now you're probably asking, "Gees, where do I find screens for mobile home windows?" You're in luck. Mobile home window screens aren't much different than screens for any type of window. The trick is finding them in the right size.

To obtain the correct screen size, you have two options. First option is to build the screen yourself using frame kits available at many home improvement stores. Second option is to spend a few extra dollars and order them.

Measure bug screen

Step 1 - Know the size of screen you will be building. Either measure the old screen or a same-size screen from another window, or measure from frame to frame in window and subtract 1/4".

Window screen kit

Step 2 – Purchase a window screen frame kit at an area home improvement store. Pick up a roll of screen that will match your existing windows. You will also need a spline tool. If the kit does not contain top springs and hand pulls, you need to buy those too.

Remove screen spline

Step 3 – If the frame kit comes with the spline installed, remove the spline by pulling up on one end.

Cut frame of screen

Step 4 – Using the measurement taken from step 1, cut frame of screen using a hack saw. Before cutting, be sure to subtract the length of each corner. Instructions with the screen kit should tell you how much to subtract.

Assemble screen corner with hand pulls

Step 5 – Lay out bottom pieces as shown. Push corner pieces into frame. Set screen pulls into spline track.

Complete assembly of screen frame

Step 6 – Lay out top pieces as shown. Insert top spring into frame, then push in corner pieces. Frame of screen should now be assembled.

Lay screen over frame

Step 7 – Unroll screen covering and lay across frame so a couple inches hangs over on each side. Using sissors, cut screen.

Push spline into groove

Step 8 – Using spline roller, push spline into groove. Gradually work the spline around the frame until it's well seated. As the spline is pushed into the groove, the screen will become taught.

A note about spline. Spline comes in several widths. If you are not buying a frame kit, I'd recommend buying the spline in a multi-pack. A multi-pack contains spline in several widths. When you get home with all the materials, you'll then know for sure you have the correct spline.

Trim screen

Step 9 – Using a utility knife with a brand new sharp blade, carefully trim off excess screen.

Finished screen

Step 10 – Enjoy your new screen!
