Replacing a screen door is a learning experience if you have never done it before.  A screen door is always enjoyable during summer and springs. It allows fresh and cool air into the home while keeping the insects out of home.

In one of our video and blog we show how to take measurement of a sliding screen door from the frame of the door.  We love feedback from customers and we have received many from the viewers regarding a How to video instruction on measuring the frame of a sliding screen door. A ton of request we got from our viewer is to show how to measure an existing sliding screen door. Whenever a sliding screen door going to be replaced we can easily take the measurement from it and order a new one.

There are few things you needs to make sure before taking measurements from an existing sliding screen door.
1. Make sure the frame is not bent. Measurement from a bent frame will definitely not work. It’ll make our work questionable even though its not our fault. The door will not slide smoothly on the track. Please try to notice if there is any bent on any side of the frame both width and height.

2. Make sure you measure with Stanley Fatmax tape measure. Its the primary go-to for many professionals, FatMax is probably the most accurate and durable measuring tape of its kind on the market. Always use 1 inch Stanley Fatmax tape measure which works great on large window and door opening.

Step 2: Measure the left or right side frame.

Step 3: Note down the measurement so you dont forget when ordering at
