How to make a window screen

How to make a window screen

Here’s how to make a window screen for your windows and install screening on it.

Measure Window Opening: Measure the space the window screen will occupy, and then subtract 1/4″ from each dimension to determine the outside dimensions of the screen frame.

Cut Screen Frame Stock: Subtract 1½” from the outside screen dimensions above to allow for the 3/4″ screen frame corner connectors. Use a power miter saw with a fine tipped blade or a hacksaw to cut the aluminum screen frame stock square to length.

Assemble Screen Frame: Push the “L” shaped corner connectors into the screen frame so the spline tracks in the corners and frame align.

Cut Screening: Lay the screen frame on a flat surface, and roll the screening out over it. Cut the screen approximately 1” larger than the frame.

Insert Spline in Screen Frame: Use the concave side of a spline roller to press the rubber spline into the groove on one side of the screen frame. Pull the screening taut (but not too tight) and insert the spline in the groove on the opposite side of the frame. Repeat on the other two sides of the screen frame.

Remove Excess Screening: Use a utility knife to cut off the excess screening on the outer edge of the spline channel.

Install Window Screens: Hardware kits are available to install window screens on windows so they are removable for cleaning.
