5 signs your damaged screen door is beyond repair

Year after year you count on your screen door to let the fresh air in and keep the bugs out. Without it, the air inside your Toronto home may feel hot, musty or stale. Having a nice fresh breeze blowing through the house is one of the best things about the warmer weather so taking care of your home’s screen door repair is well worth it. Here are five signs your screen door needs urgent repair or to be replaced entirely.

1. It’s stretched 

If someone in your home accidently runs into the screen door while it’s closed, it may get badly stretched out of shape. Even if you remove the frame and try to pull the mesh screen tight, it’s going to be hard to return the screen to its original tautness. Screens that have been stretched usually need to be replaced.

2. Holes and tears
Screen door repair can typically take care of a small hole or tear, but patching your screen door when there are large rips or holes near the edges makes for an unattractive look and impairs the functionality of the screen.

3. It keeps coming off its tracks
If your screen door keeps falling off the tracks and letting bugs in, it may not be cut to the right size for your door. Time for a screen door better fitted to the frame.

4. It’s hard to close
When the screen door is hard to close, broken rollers, a damaged track or bent frame are usually at fault. Check the condition of the rollers and replace them if necessary. If that doesn’t do the trick, you’ll need to bring the door in for professional screen door repair or consider having it replaced.

5. The frame is badly bent
If the frame of your screen door is bent you might end up with sizeable gaps. The door won’t lock properly and you’ll be leaving your home vulnerable to a host of annoying pests. You’ll have to bring it in for service or simply have it replaced.

It’s important to remember that, as with any home fixture that has been professionally installed, DIY repair jobs may void your warranty. Trust your glass and screen installation and repair to professionals who can get the job done quickly and efficiently.
