This week I did some rescreening for the first time. I had looked at
different websites for tips on how to do it but they weren't all that
helpful. It seems that my problem is that I can't get the screen
(fiberglass) as tight as what I think they should be. My screens from
20 years ago which are disintegrating are tighter than the ones I did.
Another problem is that the frames (aluminum, I think) seem a little
fragile. Most of them are bent, warped, or bowed a little so I think
that makes the rescreening more difficult. Unfortunately, there's not
much I can do about that (don't ask).
Does it matter if the screens are not very tight? They're not loose and
wavy, I guess they're somewhat snug. Does anyone have some tips on how
to get them tighter without bending the frame?
