Why buy a Sliding Screen Door Kit from Best Custom Screens?

The number one reason for purchasing a Sliding Screen Door Kit from our website is because this item is custom made to size. Most all other K.D. Kits come in a standard length and all need to be cut down. This tasks can be daunting to the home owner or that is doing it themselves. We may also call the sliding screen door kit “Partially Assembled”, because it truly is. Our factory assembles and inspects the sliding screen door. Then the top and bottom frames are removed. The screening is left on the side frames. It’s all packaged in a box that can ship throughout the U.S.A.

You won’t need to cut the frames because this one comes already cut to size

One of the benefits of purchasing a sliding screen door kit is that the frames are already cut to the correct size, eliminating the need for any cutting on your part. This not only saves time but also ensures that the frame is the correct size and shape for your door opening. All you need to do is follow the instructions carefully and assemble the kit according to the provided measurements. With a little patience and attention to detail, you’ll have a perfectly fitting sliding screen door in no time.

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Remove the Sliding Screen Door Kit from the box and packaging.
  2. Layout the frames on the floor, grass or on a 4 ft x 8 ft table. Do not layout on cement because it can scratch the paint.  Please note that the side frames will have the fiber screening attached still. This is how the Unassembled Sliding Screen Door is partially assembled.
  3. Corners are inserted at the top and bottom frames. Attach both top and bottom door frames to the side frames. Use the dead blow hammer or rubber mallet to tap the frames together, to create a tightly joined mitered corner.
  4. Use the Plastic Roller Tool to roll in the screen spline into the fiberglass screen material with the frame. Trim any excess screen fiber.
  5. Find the adjusting screws at the side of the door frame. Use the Philips screwdriver to adjust wheels. Install the door.
