Screen doors broken ? Welcome to the Internet's most popular window screen and window and door repair resource with just about anything you want to know about about repairing door and window screens.
One thing that's very popular on my site are my "knocked down" door kits. These come with everything you need to replace your worn out or missing sliding screen. Order any size you need for your patio door.
There are 2 seperate kits. One kit is a sliding door kit made in the USA for US customers. The other kit is a kit made in Canada for Canadian customers.
There is no lack of ripped and broken screening. As I am fond of saying Kids, Cats and Dogs keep me in business !. I have fixed thousands of sliders, and I am willing to share what I know to help you fix your own.
Another thing that goes hand in hand with fixing your sliding door is how to get the darn thing off in the first place. Thats why I made a page about door installation and removal. It will tell you the tricks the pros use to get the doors out.
Great for those situations where your slider is in between the glass panels or the frame is sagging. As well, there are plenty of other great tips for removing and reinstalling different types of screened doors

Where would we be without our lowly wire mesh ?, Very itchy and lot more stressed more than likely. Screening is everywhere but we sometimes do not realize how important it is. We take it for granted.
Without screening, the Panama Canal would never have been built. Too many workers would have been bitten by infected mosquitoes and got sick and died. Without screening and without the Panama Canal, the United States would never have become an economic super power!
In times past, without access to the medicine we have now, window and door mesh was literally the difference between life and death. Incredibly, there are still parts of the world that to this day, dont have this simple technology that saves and improves peoples lives on such a basic level.
