How much should it cost me to have a screen replaced in a sliding door?
There are a few different options of screening you can have. The most common and cheapest is fiberglass screening. Then there is white and black aluminum screening (which usually lasts longer) Pet screening is getting more popular now, is very good if you have cats & dogs. Yes this one will probably
run you between $ 100 and $ 140. However it is a bit darker then most screens.
It is very simple to do it your self, just go to the home depot, get the screen in the right width and length, buy the "roller tool" for entering the screen rubber seal, and after you do so, cut it with scissors, but be really careful as you can damage the new installed screen easily. Just search on youtube "how to replace a screen mesh"
You can hire a repairman for this job as well, I would say anywhere between 130-180$ is reasonable.
It depends on if you have the original screen door. If you take the screen to the repair shop and they can fabricate a new one based off the old one it will be in the $120-140. However if you require a technician to come out and measure to fabricate from scratch they will most likely charge you an hourly rate as well on top of the screen price. Unfortunately, there are no standardized patio doors as the wheels, screen bar thickness, handles, etc can all vary.
Hope this helps!
