Top Window Screen Installation related questions

If your window screen only has a few minor holes, you may be able to get it patched up. Otherwise, if it’s got multiple areas with damage or large holes that are big enough to let bugs inside, you’ll need to get it replaced.

No. Standard window screen mesh isn’t strong enough to keep your home secure. You’ll need to use special security mesh for this.

With normal use, your window screen should last 3-5 years. But pets, wildlife, and small children can wear your screen out faster, so be sure to replace or repair it once you notice holes.

Small holes can be patched up using special window screen repair patches. Larger (or multiple) holes are better off with a full replacement.

It usually costs around $9-$20 to purchase a replacement window screen. The cost will depend on the type of window screen and the size of your surface. This doesn’t include labour, which is extra.

The average cost of installing window screen ranges from $67-$180 when you book your service through Airtasker. This will vary depending on the number of doors, windows, and screens, the total surface area, and how long the job will take.

What does a window screen installation include?

Window Screen specialists can help with all aspects of installing and repairing mesh coverings on your doors and windows. Many also offer security screens and pet-proof screens for extra protection. Here’s what you can expect from some of the most common window screen services:

Window screen installations

If they’re re-meshing your window screen, your installer will start by using a brush to dust any dirt and cobwebs off the mesh and frame, before removing the entire frame to a flat surface. Next, they’ll poke a screwdriver into the frame’s corners to ease out the spline (a long rubber cord that locks the screen in place) and remove the old mesh. Then they’ll unroll the new window screen and lay it over the top of the frame, leaving a 10cm overhang. They’ll use a roller to push the spline back in place, locking in the fresh window screen mesh. Finally, they’ll trim away excess mesh at the edges before re-installing the window frame. Installing window screens involves different techniques, depending on the window type. But in general, your installer will remove the frame, layout the window screen, and lock into place.

Window screen door repairs and installations

Installing window screens on doors involves a similar process to windows, albeit on a larger scale. Your installer will remove the door frame and lay it flat before rolling out the new window screen mesh over the top. They’ll secure the mesh around the edges using a long spline before trimming, then re-fitting your door. It’s worth mentioning that you can choose from a variety of mesh types, including fiberglass mesh (most common and low-cost), pet-proof mesh, aluminum mesh (extra strong), and even one-way mesh (for privacy). Your installer will be able to advise on the best mesh for your budget, environment, and family.

Retractable window screens

Retractable window screens are a popular option for keeping flies off decks, verandas, and patios. They work like roller blinds, installed so they’re hanging from the edges of your patio roof. Your installer will follow the instructions that come with the kit. But usually, the process involves cutting the parts to fit the size of your space, before installing with a drill.
