  • Great screening system.
  • October 07, 2014
  • Recommended Product

This system is really as easy to use at it says, and our resulting porch looks very good and functions well. This is good for a DIY project. Pushing in the screen with the spline takes quite a bit of hand strength, and working high up on a ladder (if necessary for your project) can be a challenge, though. Hints on additional tools for this job: --Lath screws work well for attaching the base to wood framework--flat enough not to interfere with the trim and wide enough for good contact on either side of the pre-drilled holes. --To make the project go faster, it would be helpful to have 2 drills--one with a screwdriver bit and another with a drill bit to add a few holes for screws at the ends of cut strips. --A small, flat pry bar is handy to start pulling up sections of the trim. --A good quality anvil pruner cuts the base and trim well. Just be sure to straighten any little crushed sections of spline channel or the pieces of the trim that lock it to the base after cutting. --A pair of diagonal cutting pliers is good for cutting the spline and trimming it close after placement. --A spline roller with a blade on the back end would probably be more danger to the screen than it would be worth in convenience. Standard scissors work for fiberglass screen, anyway. Note on white cap: we used Behr Premium outdoor paint in Polar Bear White on adjacent wood, and it matches well.

Pros Easy to Install, Nice Design, will be easy to repair later, low maintenance

Good system for screening a porch, make sure you use a white rubber hammer because the black will leave a black mark on white cap.

Pros Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Move, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

This product would be much more economical for the homeowner if the length came in 12 ft or 16 ft

Part way through my porch rescreening project, I find it simple to use and to trim into place. Easily cut with a plywood blade with a power saw or tin snips. The grooves for the spline are consistent. I used a rubber mallet to snap/mate the base with the cap. The cap completely covers the base, which is a different color. The base is not visible once mated. It is only a slight challenge to pull them apart after-the-fact because of their nice snug fit, but is it is do-able. My concern is if it becomes brittle later and how well it will hold up under the solar affects; better labeling would help. The base and cap were sold separately. The screws (i.e. I used 3/4" pan heads) were not included with the base. There is no hardware needed for this cap. It is a quick process to mate them and very easy/simple to use. You just need to make sure they are lined up correctly. I installed my tracks linear to/in line with the screening mesh on the exterior of the porch, not perpendicular to it, which worked real nice. I wish the customer could ALSO have the choice to purchase them in packaged pairs and with pan head screws for simpler projects. I believe an in-store demonstration/illustrations would be simple and beneficial for this product for the DIY, as it was not available for me. Visibly, it is an extremely nice and clean product when finished.

  • Looks great
  • August 13, 2013

This was easy to install and looks great. I highly recommend it. I may have missed the instructions on how to trim the pieces to fit, but I measured, scored with an x acto knife and then was able to snap off the excess

Great product, but it was not available in black, so I had to spray paint it before I put it up. Looks amazing!

We choose the pet resistance screen which is very thick. It worked well but because of the thickness it was a bit challenging. Overall we are very happy with the product.
