Repairing Window Screens

102009screen-01.jpgWe love to leave our windows open during the summertime to catch a breeze. Not to mention during the Fall and Spring to bring in the lovely outdoor weather. Unfortunately, a damaged or torn screen can ruin the atmosphere by allowing bugs, flies and spiders to creep inside...

In college, we remember our roommate easily fixed the front door of our screened in porch (after her dog tore right though the mesh door). And while we recall the process being easy, we couldn't exactly remember how she made the repairs. We turned to Bob Villa and found simple instructions on how to repair three levels of a damaged screen (from a teeny rip to replacing the entire window screen). Our current window screen needs a facelift and we're thinking about installing a brand new screen. According to Mr. Villa, all we'll need is a flat screwdriver, scissors and some tape (and of course the replacement screen).

Apartment Therapy readers--have you had experience replacing screens? Any added tips or tricks to make this process seamless?
