Fix a Screen Door Like a Pro: Don’t Waste Your Money!

Fix a screen doorThe Easy Way to Fix a Screen Door

I love screen doors. They allow you to enjoy the outdoor breeze on a cool spring or summer morning while keeping those pesky bees, flies, bugs, or other insects out. That is, until it breaks. Most people will just buy a new door, don’t do that! Learn to fix a screen door yourself and save yourself some money.

We had a dog who we would let outside to eh hmm do his business, and when he was finished he would scratch on the screen door time and time again. Over time, the screen door started to wear and eventually ripped. I now had a giant hole through the screen from the bottom corner. My kids didn’t help the issue by thinking it was a mini-door they could run through. That only ripped it more. It no longer served the purpose of allowing me to keep my sliding door open and keep the bugs out. I needed to fix it, fast!

Fixing a screen door is SUPER easy. I didn’t even think to do it myself until I told my Dad that I needed to buy a new screen door. He looked at me and said, “You know you can do it yourself right?” All you need is a few materials to get the job done. If a pregnant woman 4 months along can fix a screen door by herself, then you can do it too. Plus, you will save yourself $40-$100 by avoiding having to pay someone to do it or buying a whole new door. Let me show you how to fix a screen door!
