Pool Cage Maintenance: Do It Myself?

How to Re-Screen a Pool Cage

By Cynthia Gomez, eHow Contributor

A screen cage keeps geckos and other small animals out. A pool enclosed in a screen cage protects swimmers from flying insects at any time of day or night. However, a pool screen enclosure, just like a screen that covers a window or door, can become torn or ripped, especially if you have pets that scratch it. Fortunately, you can re-screen a pool cage on your own, if you have the right tools, time and patience.

Instructions

1. Remove the damaged screening by lifting up on the end of the spline that holds the screening in place. Gently pull the spline completely out of the groove. Set it aside. Pull the screening off its frame.

2. Measure the panels that need to be re-screened. Cut out corresponding pieces of screen from your screen roll, adding an extra inch to each measurement as an allowance.

3. Cut a piece of new screen spline the same size as the one you have just removed. If the screen spline you removed is not cracked and dry, however, you may reuse it.

4. Have someone hold the screen panel you just cut out in front of the frame. Use your spline tool to push one end of the spine onto the screen and into the groove in the frame, starting at one corner. Leave yourself an inch or less of excess at the top. This will later be cut off.

5. Work the spline into the groove of the frame by pressing as you roll the screen into place. Make sure the other person is holding the screen taut to avoid wrinkles or crooked installation.

6. Use box cutters to cut any excess screen that is hanging off after the spline groove. Cut carefully in an outward facing motion to avoid making accidental cuts into your new screen.

7. Repeat this process for all panels that need re-screening. Because of the pool below, access to the top panels may be difficult and potentially dangerous, as you will have to walk along the thin frame of the cage. If you’re not confident in your ability to do this, seek help from a screening company.

Gulf Gate did the driveway paver installation for me and my 2 neighbors. Their price was very good (I got several estimates) and their workmanship was...
very fast and professional they turned up when they said they would. The work they did was excellent. And I was pleasantly surprised by the price. Thank you for the new pool cage
I needed my entire 40x50 enclosure rescreened because cement dust had bonded on my brand new screens. OUCH. The company that I used to build this huge enclosure ($50,000) wouldn’t schedule my rescreening for 2 months. I couldn’t believe it. I was referred to Gulf Gate Rescreening by a friend. What a blessing. Gulf Gate’s Manager Tim sent his inspector to view the job within 2 days. Tim scheduled a 4 man crew to rescreen my enclosure in just one week with the exact brand of screen that had been ruined. They completed the entire job in just one day - within 10 days of me first contacting them. Amazing! This was a different job because the enclosure surrounded a big garden which was lined with bushes and had palm trees and all kinds of plants inside. They didn’t harm any bushes or plants or irrigation sprinklers and left the area all cleaned up. I was impressed. Special thanks to Tim and the crew. I’m posting this lengthy review because Gulf Gate Rescreening and Tim really earned my respect for a job so well done. That’s rare if not impossible to find these days.
We needed miscellaneous screen and cage work. Scheduling was easy, even after I had to change original date. Arrived on time. Work was quick and well done....
These guys, Leo & Alejandro, were punctual, professional and did a great job with our screen replacement and structural repair. I highly recommend this company.
