Installing A New Screen

Getting ready to order a new screen door? It’s a good idea to make sure your measurements are accurate before you go head and order. Here is a guide we put together on how to correctly measure for a screen door.

When measuring, use a tape measure and ensure that you are measuring from sill to the top of the door. Be sure you do not include the door frame in your measurement, just simply opening to opening. Do this at three points from top to bottom and three points horizontally of the door opening and use the largest measurement. Then please refer to our size charts for single & double screens below.

When our professionally trained installers come out on the day of the install, they will measure and custom build your door right there that day. This ensures that your screen is tailored exactly to your home’s measurements. Even though our installers will measure, you will still need to know the basic measurements during the ordering process in order to know what category screen door we need to bring out.
