Whether you have a severely damaged or missing window screen, you may be at a loss as to where to start your search from or which particular size of screen to purchase. Manufactured home window screens are not any different from those screens used in other windows.
The major difference though is usually in finding the correct size of screen which would fit into your home. To get the correct size, it is important to measure the frame correctly. If you want to build one for yourself, you can measure from frame to frame then go ahead and subtract 0.25” from the figure you get then order the screen material. It is always advisable to order more or slightly larger than the actual size of the window if you will be buying a kit and replacing the window yourself. On the other hand, if you decide to have the screen customized for you, it is important that you get the measurements correct as most dealers will not accept returns.
