In the past, the conventional way of putting those window screens into action is by using staples in order for it to remain there. On top of that, you could put a painted lattice made of wood in order to hide those staples and make the whole thing look more cleanly made. However, nowadays the most proven way is to abandon staples and use those screening splines made of foam. This type of spline is durable like the vinyl one, however, it is more flexible in terms of adapting to sizes which makes it more preferable.
Here are some of the perfect tips that will help you perfectly set up those window screens at your home
- Take the time to look for the materials you would use. Remember the things you need and look for a kits and package that may help you save money while having all the things you need at the same time. You could buy the screen separately, however, there are existing kits nowadays that would include the Foam Screening Spline, the sides of the frame to be used and the four corners that will link the sides together.
- Remember to bring the old spline of your windows and take note of the size of your windows. Make sure that the kit and the spline you will buy will fit that portion of your house or all will be for naught.
- You might get the feeling that you could actually use the spline you have now. Of course it might look like it’s still in a great condition, but regardless, you should still replace it once you’re setting up a new screen since it may end up giving you trouble sooner or later as it stretches out.
- If you ever find yourself fixing many window screen and not just one, it is almost empirical to start with the one that’s larger in size. Compare the sizes and start with the biggest one so in case that you cut the window screen in pure accident, you won’t have to worry since the remaining ones are smaller than the one you’re already fixing.
