How to install with a screen door kit

  1. Measure your door opening. This will ensure that you get the right size door kit.
  2. Assemble the door frame. Most door frames come with pre-cut pieces that are easy to assemble using screws or bolts.
  3. Attach the screen mesh. The screen mesh is typically attached to the door frame using spline. Spline is a thin rubber strip that is inserted into a groove in the door frame and then stretched over the screen mesh.
  4. Install the rollers and track. The rollers and track are what allow the door to slide smoothly. The track is typically attached to the top and bottom of the door opening, and the rollers are attached to the top and bottom of the door frame.
  5. Hang the door. Once the rollers and track are installed, you can hang the door. Be sure to adjust the rollers so that the door slides smoothly.

Tips for installing a DIY sliding screen door kit

  • Make sure that the door frame is level before attaching the screen mesh. This will prevent the screen from sagging.
  • Use a sharp utility knife to cut the spline. Be careful not to cut the screen mesh.
  • Use a rubber mallet to tap the spline into the groove in the door frame. Be careful not to overtighten the spline, or it could damage the screen mesh.
  • Adjust the rollers so that the door slides smoothly. If the door is difficult to slide, loosen the rollers slightly. If the door slides too easily, tighten the rollers slightly.

With a little planning and effort, you can install a DIY sliding screen door that will save you money and provide you with years of use.
