Spring has come to Asheville, and so have the bugs! It's the time of year when I start installing a lot of screen doors.
This is a great time to talk about how to choose the right screen door: should you go for the cheapest option, or shell out a little more money for an upgrade?
A client of mine recently picked out this nice screen door from Home Depot. At around $30, it's hard to argue with the price.
Fortunately I've worked with screens before, so I had the right tools in my van.
I also had to trim the frame down to fit it to the opening. (Replacing a door is trickier than it looks.) It turned out well in the end, and it looks much better than the sagging and weathered door that was there before.
You can make inexpensive materials look good... it just takes a little more work.
If you need someone with the know-how to finish and hang a screen door correctly, why not call your trusty Asheville handyman? I'll be glad to help.
