How To Patch a Screen
Time Required: Under 2 hours
Minor holes and tears in window screening are easily fixed with glue and pre-manufactured patches. A fiberglass screen can be fixed by sewing a patch over the hole. You usually won’t have to remove the screen window unit to make the repair.
Place the screen patch over the hole in the plastic or fiberglass screen so that the hole is completely covered with enough left on each side to fold over the ends of the patch.
