Questions to Ask Yourself When Deciding to Repair or Replace A Window Screen

When owning a home, one of the most underrated aspects of home ownership is window screen maintenance. When maintaining your window screens, one of the things you might not be able to gauge is if it is time to replace a window screen or if a window screen only needs a repair. Here are some prognosis questions to ask yourself before requesting a house call from a Doctor.


How long have you had your window screen?

A typical window screen can last approximately 5 -7 years before being replaced. Has it been more than 5 years since you last replaced your window screen? If it has, it might be time to have a replacement done by our Doctors.


Can you see any physical damage on your window screen?

Take a good look at your window screen. If your window screen has obvious severe damage, like large holes or rips, it may be time for you to replace your window screen rather than repair it.

You may also want to look at the colour of your window screen. This is to see if it has become shiny. Shiny window screens may mean that the mesh on your window screen has worn out and that it is time for a replacement. We’ll make sure to repair or replace your screens with the highest quality products from ODL and Mirage Screen Systems.


Can’t open your window?

If you’re having a hard time opening the window to get a fresh breeze in, take that as a sign to get your window screen looked at by Doctor Screen. Windows getting stuck is sometimes due to damaged window screens.
