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.
