How to Repair Aluminum Frame Screen Doors

Home Improvement
Screen doors take maximum amount of stress while opening and closing; subsequently you will end up with a damaged screen door over the time. A screen tear is common in homes where over-exuberant children and pets are predominant. Most of the aluminium entrance doors have removable glass inserts for winter months and in rest of the year, removable screens for frames. Aluminium storm doors have removable screen insert and you just need to open the screen if you need to repair it.

Screen are also made either of aluminium or fibre glass and attached by a retainer spline. So, first remove the screen door by unfastening all screws. To remove the screen you need to:

First need to remove the screws of door jamb on the hinge side of the door to the aluminium frame.
Most of the doors have three hinges, so you will find six screws.
Once you remove the door, it will be easily detached from its frame.
If your aluminium entrance door is a storm door with glass panels and screen inserts, you don't have to take away the door, just remove the screen insert.

Prepare a working surface

A large flat surface on which you can lay down your door and do your repair work is necessary. You can use any flat surface like a sheet of plywood on saw horses or even an old flush door will work. Only thing you need to take care of that your height and large enough to accommodate your screen door.

Important tools for screen repair

There are no complicated tools needed for repairing your screen door. Some of the essential tools are:

Fibreglass screen (nowadays plastic retainer spline are available)
Screen installation tool
A pair of scissors
A razor blade

For convenience, less expense and dent free, you may use fibreglass screen. Do not ignore the razor blade because in the end you need to trim the screen close to the plastic spline.

Now, you need to cut the screen to working size that is the length of the screen door frame. Use your razor and trim the screen, so that it is about 2 inches long on each side. You need to trim the screen further once you install the retainer spline.

Installing retainer spline and screen

  • This is a complex process and demands patience and care. Your screen will have two slack and taut sides. Taut sides where final tension across the frame.
  • Using the screen installation tool, start from the top of long side of the frame and press the retainer spline. Leave the spline a little detached from the track so that it can be easily removed if you need to reposition it.
  • Your screen fiber is delicate, so pull mildly in the direction of rolling. Maintain a slight tautness to avoid being puckered.
  • First install two slack sides and then repeat the process on the top of the frame.
  • After finishing the top frame, you will find a smooth appearance as you going down the side of the frame.
  • A little change in tension creates a pucker, gently lift the spline and again reinstall to remove the slack area.
  • After finishing all sides, now it's time to fully press your retainer spline to tighten the screen across the frame.
  • After tightening the spline, trim it.
