Old, ratty and worn-out window screens look bad and let bugs get into your home. Sometimes, a new window frame and screen can take care of the problem. But with prices rising almost daily, finding affordable new replacement window screens is not always an option for many homeowners and renters. Building your own window frame from a kit is fast, affordable looks like a custom made window.
A great alternative is to build your own window frame and install a new screen for a fraction of the cost of buying new ones and paying someone to install them.
A simple video demonstration shows how relatively simple it is to buy a window frame kit from a local home improvement store and put it together yourself.
You do not need to be a highly experienced carpenter or have a well-supplied toolbox to do the task. Some window frames simply snap together, while others might need a Phillips-head screwdriver to secure the frame and affix it in place on the window. A tape measure, some adhesive and maybe a screwdriver are all it takes to do the job right. Follow the instructions, cut the screen to the proper size and install it.
