Making an Aluminum Window Screen Frame

by Michigan State University on Apr 26, 2012

Occasionally a metal screen will fall out, be blown out or otherwise damaged beyond repair. Then there are windows, especially in older houses that are odd sizes for which a screen is desired.

Materials to make a replacement screen or odd-sized screen can be purchased at many building materials or hardware stores. The framing material usually comes in lengths of 6 feet so measure the opening into which the frame must fit before you buy the material. Buy enough material to make the four sides. Also, buy a package of four corner braces. Then proceed as follows:

Step 1.

Mark off a 45-degree angle near one end of the material.

Step 2.

Mark off a distance equal to one side of the opening being sure to mark on the long side.

Step 3.

Cut another 45-degree angle so the piece looks like the side of a picture frame.
