How do I replace the screening in my window/door?

A damaged screen is easy to replace and you'll find all the materials you need at your local Westlake hardware store.

  • Remove the screen from your window or door and place it on a large surface.
  • Remove the spline and then remove the old screen.
  • Measure your new screen to the size of your frame, but leave a couple of inches of material around all sides.
  • Lay the screen across the frame and use a screen rolling tool to firmly install a new spline around the edge of the frame.
  • Once the spline is in place, trim the excess screen material away from the frame using a razor knife.
  • Reinstall the frame with your new screening.
