Window screens?

Looking for someone to replace our window screens on a 1999 Excella. We are full-timers and always looking to improve our AS. Help

You can do it yourself quite easily. You just need the screen material, a roll of the spline at the right diameter and a spline tool. All available at your local big box store. Go to YouTube and search for screen replacement and watch a video to see how it's done.

If you redo your screens, get the no-see-um mesh. It's a little finer and keeps ALL the bugs out.

screens

a Local glass shop should be able to redo your screens.

If you do them yourself keep the old "spline" until you find the correct size,or just reuse the spline.

You will need a roller tool for this,don't buy the cheapest one.

hope this helps

I probably haven't tried hard enough.

At some time, or another, I always seem to recite a few cuss words when I am replacing screens. I don't think I'm the only one.
