[Question 1] - I have a standard window screen – how much are your screens?
There really are no standard window screens, which is why we custom fabricate all of the screens right here in our shop. We actually carry 9 different types of window screen frame and which one used depends on which would best fit your opening.
[Question 2] - Is installation included in your price?
The price is for the material only. We can make the screens and install them for you.
[Question 3] - How long does the screen last?
With window screens, we cannot put a time guarantee on them when it comes to the corrosion rate. Our screens are made of thicker gauge aluminum and have better finishes available and so are better quality and last longer than most of our competitors. But how long they last really depends on the conditions the screens are in and how well they are maintained. Really corrosive environments that are near the beach or in wet areas will corrode faster than less salty or drier areas. Also if you wipe down the screen frames when they are wet and rotate the screens every few months, they will last longer.
[Question 4] - What kind of guarantee Screen and Things offer?
We have been in business for over 37 years. If we took the measurements of the screens for you and they did not fit or if we made the screens incorrectly, we would certainly correct the problem at our expens.e
[Question 5] - I have wood screens currently, can you make wood screens?
We usually make our screens from aluminum. We can make wood screens in our shop but they are more labor intensive to make and install and so are much more expensive than aluminum screens. Also one thing to consider is that wood screens are more labor intensive to re-screen in the future since you must take off the molding to staple in the screen cloth, whereas aluminum screens are easy to re-screen by simply rolling the screen cloth in the channel. So it would be less expensive now and in the future to replace your wood screens with aluminum screens. But if you would prefer wood screens, we can make them for you.
