Hey everyone! (I feel like i’ve been asking for a lot of help lately. apologies if I’m becoming annoying)
I picked up 5 screens today to do mesh replacement, and I’ve never seen screens like this - it looks like the mesh is melted/glued onto a thin metal frame. I have no idea how to approach this.
From a small test, it seems I can pull the mesh off of the frame without much of a problem. My issue is, I don’t know the best way to apply a new mesh (specifically, the Pet Screening). Would I have to use a heat gun to ‘melt’ the screen to the frame? Or something like Gorilla Glue?
Anyone else have experience with screens like this?
I did, thankfully. I sent them a text and said, “I’ve never seen screens like this before. I’ll look into it and keep you in the loop.” So they’re aware I may not be able to do anything, which afford me some breathing room.
I don’t have a problem learning something new, but I’m not sure where to start on this one. I also don’t have a problem admitting that this is beyond my ability, if that’s the case. Again, I don’t know how difficult something like this would be, so maybe I shouldn’t even attempt it.
just the composition of what’s in your service area
a lot of “individual” type homes? (homes that aren’t luxury homes but a builder builds one, homes on a street are vastly different in architecture and materials)
or perhaps a wide array of age of homes? some areas massively spring up within 10 years and ething is pretty similar, other areas you have a spread of homes built from the 1940’s - now, that’s a lot of possible variety
Yeah, if I get enough window cleaning gigs this year I might drop screen cleaning altogether. Unless I hire a guy to do that work for me. It does make good money, and keeps things going in the winter, and very few places around me offer it.
