Colorado Window Screen Repair

Let's just say Colorado is very tough to be an outside window screen.

Window Screen Repair To begin with, UV rays at this elevation are more intense than most locations in the United States. Add to that, Denver gets almost 300 days with sun a year. This causes fiberglass window screens with a lot sun exposure to break down and begin to fail in about ten years. You will know when your screens are getting really old and frail when the black color starts to fade to white. It is harder to tell with gray screens but in time they also fade to white. When your screens get to this stage it will not take much for them to tear.

Unfortunately, with all the hail here along the front range most people end up repairing screens a lot more often than once in 10 years. In fact, the eastern plains of Colorado and Wyoming are known as the hail capitol of the world. Here in the Denver metro, the hail is not quite that bad. However, most people who move here from other parts of the country are shocked with how often hail storms strike the Denver area.

Window Screen Replacement

Some window manufacturers, such as Anderson, use aluminum to make their window screens. The aluminum definitely holds up much better than fiberglass to the suns UV rays. However, they do not do well with hail. It is very rare that they would be torn by the hail but rather they get all dented up which looks very unsightly.

I can also replace most damaged frames, there are a few frames that were made in the 70s and 80s that are no longer being made but that is rather rare. I can also replace broken or missing pull tabs. In time many plungers fail, I can replace them with nice metal plungers with a new spring and cap. Springs and plastic corners also tend to break given enough time and exposure to the elements and are easily replaced. Prices for these materials differ greatly from screen to screen. For this reason I will have to look at these issues personally before I can give you a quote.
