    Interesting, I’ve never seen screens with metal splines.

    yes they are metal but very flexible just had to tap back in with a rubber
    mallet

    Well done, now I know I’ve been missing a few needed steps!

    Good luck, report back on how your replacement goes.

    That worked sweet! In addition, in order to keep the frame square, set a
    framing square at the edges, and then tape the frame edges to the floor,
    keeps a loose frame ‘solid’ before screening it in.

    I would also add, tape the screen frame edges down (keeping the screen
    frame square) BEFORE removing the damaged screen so the frame remains in
    trued shape to fit back in the original window frame.

    Good question, the screen company I called to check what they would charge
    to replace screens wanted $49 per screen to do the replacement.

    This is excellent! I’m having an open house tomorrow, and was dreading the
    fact that I need to replace two screens first, but now I’m feeling pretty
    confident about it. My only suggestion would be to explain the difference
    between “concave and convex”, I wasn’t completely sure about that, and had
    to look it up, lol. Other than that it was awesome, really helped me,
    thank-you!!

    question: I need a whole new frame because I accidentally bent mine to the
    point of no return while removing it.

    You can buy window frame kits at Home Depot or Lowe’s.

    thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I went to home depot
    yesterday and they were able to bend it back but I might replace the screen
    anyways because it isn’t tight and there is a hole on the corner. So I will
    definitely use this video as a guide. thanks for the help!
