Screen door repair

The insect netting on our front screen door has come loose. The insect netting is not torn, but it has come away from where it is attached to the door.

It look to me like the netting was wrapped around a small round fitting before being squeezed into a grove. It all looks very tight but obviously not tighter than it has been able to part.

Is this a repairable issue. It does not look like something I could do myself but maybe I am wrong. Where would I go to have someone repair it for me? Would it be a glazier?

While surfing the Internet for "screen door repair" I came across these 2 videos:

1. How to remove a torn screen.

2. How to install a new screen.

I think this could be done as a D.I.Y. project. This will also give me an excuse to visit on of my favorite shops, Home depot, to get a spline roller.

Henrick,
I have a "roller" and enough screen fabric to fix a door should "new" be required.
See you "soon".

EXCELLENT !!!

I am not sure if the "old" screen fabric will go back in. It has not come apart everywhere - only in say 8 inches, so maybe a partial repair is possible.

Say "Hi" to all the Boomers from us. We are still on track to meet you all in Boerne, TX early September.

All the best.

Trying to reuse the old screen is an excercise in futility. The only way to do it right is to purchase new screening that is big enough for about a 2" overlap all the way around.

Thanks Finhawk - advice appreciated.

I am not used to screen doors at all. Basically we don't have them where I live.

We do have the occasional mosquito passing by but due to the size of them in the Nordic countries, we just whack them with a baseball bat a few times until they stop moving. After they are dead my neighbor and I will carry them to the lake and throw them in - the fish likes them.

My son owns a custom screen and door company the round material holding screen in is the spline there are several choices off screen to replace with solar screen,pet screen, insect screen your door really needs to come off to do a good repair job. It maybe cheaper to take the to a screen repair shop that buying new screen, spline, roller and it probably will look better. If you need any help you can private message me.

I have checked the manual. There was no mention of this at all and now it's too late...

If it is only a small section I have tucked it back in and carefully pushed the spline in with my thumb nail or the back of a butter knife.Patience comes in handy.

That's how I do it too. I tease out the spline with a butter knife, stretch and tuck the screen back in place and press the spline back in place with the same knife. I've repaired the door screen several.times that way.
