window screen installer

To install a window screen, you will need the following materials:

  • Window screen
  • Screen spline (a rubber gasket used to hold the screen in place)
  • Spline roller (a tool used to press the spline into the frame)
  • Scissors or a utility knife
  • Masking tape


  1. Measure the dimensions of the window frame to ensure that the screen is the correct size.
  2. Lay the screen over the frame, with the end of the screen extending about 1 inch beyond the frame on all sides.
  3. Using the masking tape, secure the screen to the frame along one side.
  4. Starting at one corner, use the spline roller to press the spline into the frame, starting at the corner and working your way around the frame. Make sure to press the spline down firmly so that it holds the screen in place.
  5. Once you have worked your way around the entire frame, use the scissors or utility knife to trim any excess spline or screen material.
  6. Press the spline down firmly all around the frame to ensure that the screen is securely in place.

That’s it! With these steps, you should be able to install a window screen on your own.
