Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geniebeanie Great product; Amazingly Easy to Use
Some of the screens on my 22-year old windows were in tatters. I did not want to spend $$$ for replacement screens. I saw that HD carried several types of screen material and after researching and viewing the manufacturer's installation videos I chose clear advantage because of the ease in using a fiberglass screen and the promise of clearer viewing. This product delivered on both accounts! I used new spline, but to my surprise the old material came out easily and could have been used again. I bought the less expensive tool because, really how often am I going to do this? The 36x84 was enough material to do three of my 27"x32" Windows. I used latex gloves because I am sensitive to fiberglass. But this was a great DIY job, easy, I saved a ton of $$, and my screens look great. No more holes, or bugs and dirt getting into my windows. I am so pleased that I went back to HD and bought the 36"X25' to fix all my screens. If I can do this, anyone can do it too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dale No more bugs
This Clear Advantage fiberglass insect screen, really works well. My kitchen window screen was beyond repair. Replacement was a little tedious, as I had to take the frame apart to replace the screen, but the results are great, great look, easy to cut with household scissors. Clear view out the window, and no bugs coming in through the gaping holes in the old screen. Very satisfied. I still have my back door screen to replace, it will be and easier job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by schlafe Crystal clear and strong
I am extremely happy with the CLEAR ADVANTAGE 36 IN. X 84 IN. CHARCOAL FIBERGLASS INSECT SCREEN FCS8480-M. I used the screen to re-screen a standard single sliding screen door. The screen material is easy to work with, extremely strong, and provides a considerably clear view once installed. I am still somewhat amazed at the strength of the screen material given the amount of light the screen allows through. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony Looks nice, no bugs
This screen came with a nice pamphlet of information describing its various qualities. Evidently this screen (versus regular screens) allows more light through, is harder to see, & has a finer mesh pattern for greater insect protection, all while meeting industry standards for tensile & bursting strength. Sound good? It sounded good to me. All the technical stuff aside, this screen was very easy to work with & looks as good as a screen can look. I did not have any problems with it tearing and there were no pinched parts when I unrolled it. The product is made in Mexico.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EightOfEight pleasantly surprised
I wasn't sure what to expect with this replacement screen since, on the roll, it looks almost black. But when it is installed in the screen frame, it is magically almost undetectable. I am pleasantly surprised. The mesh is finer than the original screen that I replaced, so I am confident that it will keep out even more bugs than before. It is also very pliable and easy to work with, and there was no warping or dents like the metal screens often get during installation. I am very pleased with the quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Duck Very clear, easy to work with, but a little fragile
I used this to replace the screen in the front door. It was easy enough to install, but on my first try the screen tore when I was pressing the spline in place. I was able to move it over a bit since I hadn't cut it to size yet. On the second try I made sure to keep the spline tool to the outside of the groove and it went ok. It looks great. It feels flimsy and I wouldn't lean against it, but it is stronger than it feels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by momof2kidz Screen door repair
We used this screen to replace the metal screening on one of our sliding screen. It is actually a kit that comes complete with the tools you need for installation. We found that it installs fairly easily, and we are happy with the result. The view through this screen is definitely better than the old one, and it does seem to let in more light as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jstine35 Different Purpose than Intended
In all honesty, we ordered this screen so that my husband could use it in his ceramic coating business. It helps to provide a pattern when he "paints" parts. For that purpose, it has been great. We have plenty of material left to keep using it for a bunch of projects. I can see how it would be great at keeping bugs out if it was used as an actual screen.
