Customer Questions & Answers

What screw should I use for installation of screen tight base?

Asked by: Anonymous
You should never use a sheetrock screw in something installed Outdoors. Moisture equals rust. I can't believe a screen tight representative actually advised that.

can the 3 1/2 base be used with the 1 1/2 base where they butt together ?

I need to use 3 1/2 verticles and 1 1/2 horizontals.
Asked by: Hawkman
Yes, we did just that. Used 3 1/2 inch on upright posts, 1 1/2 inch on horizontals. We butted them to each other. I think it will show up in the image attached.

This is my first time installing screen. I hired my cousin to do the frame work on my patio and decided I would try and install the screen tight system. As surprised to myself it all went together very easy. The base strips were not exactly straight when I screwed them up but the screen went in without any problem.

I was a bit concerned about the corners but it was no problem at all. It appears to be quite strong and should withstand the high winds at our beach house. In the event of a hurricane, screen replacement would be easy. Very happy with this system.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A lot harder to install then expected Most of the reviews were favorable on this product so I thought I would give it a try. I went and bought all the stuff I needed. Everything went well up to the point of installing the screen. This is a two person job. It is very hard to get the spline in the chanel while trying to keep everything straight. Once you get you finally get the screen on and put the caps on the finished product is just not that great. I feel for the difference in cost the old fashion way would have been better. Hope this helps someone who is considering this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use, highly recommend I was able to install the tracks on my own - my 8 yr old daughter helped hold up the track a couple times on the longer lengths so I could pre drill and put in the screws. I used a fiberglass screen and was able to install it by myself and get a tight finish. I love how it turned out. To cut the tracks to fit, I measured and then scored them with an exacto knife and could then bend them to snap off the excess. I didn't see how to trim the lengths in the video or instructions, but maybe I just missed them. There were also a couple times that one of the pre done screw holes wasn't near enough to the end so I put a screw straight through the track into the wood and that worked great. I highly recommend this product!
