Replacing the screen mesh on a FlexScreen

A quick learner from McDonough, GA says:
If the screen needs replaced, can I use the same frame? Can I purchase replacement screens at my local home improvement store for DIY?

Thank You,
Martin

Hello! Yes, you can use new screen mesh on the same frame. The screens use heat to secure to the frame; specifically, we use the 75-101 Versa-Tool to do this. We don't currently have instructions on how, but a detailed video is in the works and we hope to have it online in the future. We also sell replacement screen mesh here. Let me know if you have any other questions.
A contractor from Louisville Ky says:
A couple of questions, we use your screens in our windows and there is going to be a time that we need to replace the screen for various reasons. Is the screen a specific type or can we use normal fiberglass screen to replace the screen material. That detailed video would definitely be helpful or some type of instructions would certainly help the learning curve..

Thanks Doug

Thanks for your question, Doug. You can use regular fiberglass screen mesh to repair your Flexscreens. We hope to have the "how to" video up and running soon.
