You may need to replace a screen section on your patio when it is torn by pets, tree limbs or storms and other mishaps.  The following video will demonstrate how to replace a screen section on the side wall of your patio.  We DO NOT recommend that you try to replace a screen that is part of the top of your pool enclosure (anything that is not vertical, is the top).  Working on the top of a pool enclosure is very dangerous and should not be attempted unless you have knowledge and experience.

How to Patch a Hole on Your Screen Enclosure

Posted by JR on September 17, 2017
Screen Repair, Videos / Comments Off on How to Patch a Hole on Your Screen Enclosure

How to put a patch on your screen.   Sometimes you don’t have the time or the money to repair or replace a screen.  This video gives you a simple way to patch the hole in the screen yourself.  This will work if it is on a pool, patio, screen room or lanai screen enclosure.

It will also work on a window screen.  The patch will usually stay on the screen for a long time if the patching is done with everything dry.

You can also use spray glue (get from the hobby store).  You could buy a roll of sticky screen but that does not stay on the screen as long (order this online).

The patch will look rather ugly and tacky but it will keep the bugs out.

Sheeting Screen Enclosure Vs Attach Every Panel. Screen each section separately vs using one piece of screen between the major top beams. This video shows you the difference. Pros and cons. Make sure you know.
Different guys rescreen or repair the top or roof of your pool screen enclosure using different methods. Some ways of rescreening are better than others.

It is very dangerous to work on the top/roof of your pool enclosure. Most beams are only 2 inches wide and the guy needs to balance on the beams as he replaces the screen. Be sure to check to see if the guys who are working on the roof or top of your pool cage are insured. If they are not insured and they get injured you may be responsible.

Screen Repair, Videos / Comments Off on Sliding Glass Door Screen Repair

Call John at 561-798-3132 in Wellington, Florida for screen repair.

Sometimes your pet or child will accidently run through the sliding screen door and you need to repair it. The door usually has rollers on the top side or the bottom side of the slider door. The rollers make the door much easier to slide. Some slider screen doors do not have rollers.

There are several solutions to getting your screen slider door repaired. You can repair the door yourself (attached is a video). ( ) You can take it to a screen repair shop in your area. In some areas the local Ace Hardware store will repair the slider screen for you if you take it to them. Ace Hardware will also repair and/or build new window screens, in many areas.

If someone gives you a price for repair on the phone, the price does not generally include the repair or replacement of the rollers. There are over 60 types (manufactures) of rollers for screen sliders, so all types are not easily available. There are a few generic type of rollers that will fit more than one make/manufacture of slider. This video will show you how to work on a roller.

When you have someone come to your house to repair something, it will cost more than if you take it to a shop to get it repaired.
If you cannot repair the slider yourself or take it out to be repaired then you can call John at 561-798-3132 if you live in the Wellington Fl area.

How to Keep Birds Off Your Screen Enclosure

Posted by JR on October 10, 2013
Screen Repair, Videos / Comments Off on How to Keep Birds Off Your Screen Enclosure

Birds can make a big mess on your screen enclosure. For Help call John at 561-798-3132

Pigeons, ducks, and numerous other fowl; park themselves on the top of your screen enclosure and your roof. They not only make a mess but they tear the screen on your enclosure.

Even one hole in the screen can let in insects, squirrels, raccoons and other birds. When birds and other animals get into the enclosure they make a mess on the patio deck, contaminate the water in the pool, and rip holes in the other screens, in an attempt to get out of the screen room.

This problem can go on for weeks, months or even years. Some birds are only seasonal, for a few months a year, but other birds are here all year round. Of course, squirrels, and raccoons are here all the time.

This problem can become expensive as well as keep you from enjoying your swimming pool and outdoor space covered by your screen room.
You will not only need to repair the damaged screens but to clean up your patio and decontaminate your pool.

This video will give you some ideas of what can be done to keep the birds and other animals out of your pool lanai.

Pool Screen Enclosures and Hurricane Damage

Posted by JR on May 28, 2013
Storm Damage, Videos / Comments Off on Pool Screen Enclosures and Hurricane Damage

Hurricanes can cause a lot of damage to swimming pool enclosures.  View several videos at    and they will give you a picture of what type of damage can happen to your enclosure or lanai.

Every storm weakens your screen enclosure, even if the frame and screen may look OK to you.  Some very tall enclosures “rain” screws into the pool during a very strong storm.  Be sure and take any screws out of your pool as soon as possible because the screws will quickly rust and could damage your pool.

As you can seen in the videos, storms can do some very serious damage to your pool, patio enclosure or lanai.  If you are lucky, you may only need a little bit of screen repair done.  If you are not so lucky, you may need to replace your entire screen enclosure. In any case, be sure and check over your screen structure for any needed repairs or adjustments.  It could save you time and trouble later.

Many homes have a screen lanai or screen house without a pool.
When deciding to build an enclosure bu sure to get a licensed contractor to build your enclosure. Like all construction services, everyone are not the same, so be careful. It is good to get references from other customers.
Whatever you choose your patio enclosure will take some maintance, such as replacing or repairing torn or ripped screen.
Dogs, cats, kids and other things can cause minor damage. Many things you can repair yourself.
