Save money on torn window screens by fixing or replacing them
yourself. Replacing the mesh in an aluminum frame window screen is a DIY
project. Pick up a screen replacement kit, and follow the instruction.
Patch the hole in your window screen by placing two pieces of screen
together, and then whipping them together with fishing line or invisible thread.
Buy window screen mesh when it
goes on sale and keep it handy in the garage.
Be careful with the screens on sliding
windows. Make sure young children can't reach them, push them out, and
fall out the window.
