I’d like to tell you about a recent project we completed.
The customer called us because his screens kept falling out.
Turns out, the last company that worked on the project installed the screens using the wrong spline. For those of you that don’t know, the spline is the rubber strip that holds the screen into the frame. The last contractor didn’t know what he was doing and rolled screen into this entire structure using spline that was way too small.
Result- Every time the wind blew hard, screens would come loose or fall out.
I had an easy fix for him. We simply came over, and with the correct spline, rolled all his screens back in. We even used the leftover screen he had to save him a few dollars on materials.
I love jobs like this. We got to help him out. It was pretty easy work. The location and structure were beautiful! Not only that, but there was a good deal of shade if you worked on certain sides of the building at just the right time.
Lessons to learn-
- Use a reputable contractor, not just the cheapest handyman around.
- If there’s a problem, get him back on the job to fix it.
- Just go ahead and have us do your project the first time and save you time and money.
Dave, the guy who knows which spline to use
P.S. If you’re the DIY type, we’d be happy to sell you spline and screen if you want to repair your own.
