Happy September! It’s the time of year when we turn off the air conditioner and rely solely on Mother Nature’s A.C.—fresh air! If you’re ready to give your electric bill a break, but don’t want to let in bugs and leaves, we encourage you to take a few moments to make sure your doors and windows are properly screened. Read on for our simple solutions that will have you all “screened in” in no time flat.
Install Adjustable Window Screens
Have a window with a missing or broken screen? No problem! Frost King offers a complete line of slide-to-adjust window screens by industry leader W.B. Marvin. Made with two screens that slide on top of one another, these replacement window screens feature aluminum screening, wood ends and plated, easy-gliding steel rails for fingertip adjustment.
W.B. Marvin screens require no tools and are easy to install and remove—making them the perfect choice whether you own or rent your home. Available in a variety of sizes to fit most standard window heights, simply slide one screen out and adjust it to fit the width of your window frame. For where to buy, click here.
Repair Your Screen Door or Window
Rips in screen doors and windows are easy to ignore—until you see flies making an unwanted visit in your home. Whether your dog scratched her way through your screen door or you kid tore the window screen with an action figure, we all know that holes happen. Rather than replace the entire screen, our favorite quick fix is to use a simple window screen repair kit.
Made for use in both wood and aluminum frames, Frost King Screen Patches allow for instant repair of window and door screens with an almost invisible result. Each pack contains eight self-attaching aluminum patches that are 1.75” x 1.75”. Simply place the patch over the hole so that the hole is completely covered with a little extra on either side. After cutting the patch to size using sturdy scissors or metal snips, secure the edges of the patch with a small amount of clear silicone waterproof glue. For where to buy, click here.
