How to Repair a Hole in a Screen

Homeowners have plenty of choices when it comes to mouse proofing in Pleasanton, CA, and screens can be quite effective in keeping rodents out of the home. They won’t be very effective if there are holes in them, however, but this is typically a simple repair. Check out this video clip to find out how to repair a hole in a screen.

The smaller the hole in your screen, the easier it will be to repair. Start by cutting a square around the hole in the screen, and make sure you give yourself about a half inch of bleed room from the frame. Then take a square patch of new screen and center it over the hole. Glue around the patch to secure it to the screen, and spread the glue around with a wooden stick. Once the glue dries your screen should once again be a viable mouse proofing tactic.
