Some basic tools such as a tape measure hamper knife chisel staple gun and clamps will be needed. Designing and Cutting the Door Thinner wood stock is generally used when building a screen door generally in a five-eighths thickness. Choose a well-dried wood to avoid future wood shrinkage warping or swelling. Measure the dimensions of the door you need to construct and cut the horizontal and vertical pieces to fit. While constructing the door it can help to clamp the door pieces to a work table. To make the corner joins as well as when adding the center horizontal support piece you will need to take off half the thickness of one piece of wood where they will intersect with a saw so that the overall finished thickness of the joint will be equal to that of a single piece of wood.
Use a polyurethane glue and a brush to attach the wood support pieces together and then clamp and allow to dry completely. Once the glue joints are completely dry you can sand the door and apply a stain and clear finish or paint the door if desired. Adding the Screen to the Door Laying the door flat on the work table measure the overall opening and cut a piece of screen material to the proper size leaving several inches around the edges to make installation easier which will be trimmed later. Lay the screen over the top of the door frame and staple it to the top of the frame pulling it tightly towards the bottom of the door.
The order can be placed online and the buyer can mention all his special requirements while placing the order. Customers can opt for either the inside mount type or the surface mount. They can also select the latch type material of the screen and the finish. The buyers must have the measurements of their doorways so that they can by the screens accordingly. The frames can be easily installed on the doorways. The French type roll away screens are much more costly. The customers have to spend additional amount for installation of the screens. Living in a society with houses built mostly on concrete walls inhibits most of us to freely leave our doors open thus containing us inside a four-walled domicile. However it is human nature for people to want to go out and enjoy fresh air or even open doors to let air and light enter the premise.
Make sure that the installer has many years experience and has been trained by the manufacturer. It is also important for the screen door company to have a valid contractors license depending on if your state requires it by law. A contractors license usually shows that the company is serious about staying in business for a number of years and it is protection for the consumer. Finally the service and warranty claims of the screen door company should also be taken into consideration. If there is a lifetime warranty on the parts excluding the screen material then who will service the screen door if a component breaks.
