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.

Repair Pool Screens For Pool Safety

Children are out of school for the summer and ready to take advantage of  all things fun and interesting.  That could include having a swim in your pool.  Keep your pool enclosure screens repaired so as to deter the kids from using your pool for their fun and possibly getting hurt.

Recreational time at public and residential swimming pools and spas is a favorite activity for children and adults all over the country. Whether enjoying pool time with family and friends, exercising, playing water sports, or learning to swim, everyone needs to be mindful of the potential for incidents and drownings in pools and spas.

Each year, nearly 300 children under the age of five drown in residential and public pools and spas. Submersion incidents requiring emergency-room treatment or hospitalization number in the thousands and many victims experience permanent disability, including brain damage.

Few people know of the hidden dangers from drain or suction entrapments. Drains with broken, missing, or faulty covers can entrap hair, the body, limbs, jewelry and clothing, or cause disembowelment/evisceration.

Prepare Your Screen Enclosure For Hurricane Season

Hurricanes are severe tropical storms that form in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Scientists can now predict hurricanes, but people who live in coastal communities should plan what they will do if they are told to evacuate.

What should you do to prepare your screen enclosure for the hurricane season.

Check your enclosure for rusty or loose screws, missing screws or missing bracing.

Everything put togather sooner or later falls apart, sooner when the connectors are rusty or worn.

If you are handy, you can replace screws or bolts yourself.

Check for weak, poorly attached corners.  Enclosure angles and corners take heavy stress during a storm and one break can bring down an entire pool cage.

Check for improperly anchored support beams.  Anchoring beams through pavers is not sturdy.  Heavy winds can pull the pavers free from their mortar and sand base.
