When you own your home, you take pride in the way it looks and the investments you’ve made in making your space your own over time. There’s a certain amount of satisfaction that comes from tackling a DIY project in your own home. With that sentiment in mind, torn screens on your windows, doors and patio can not only be unsightly, but can be a hazard. Pets can get out, other critters can get in, and it opens up your home to bugs of all sizes.


To help keep your home beautiful and get the most out of your screens, Phifer offers several different DIY kits to help you make necessary repairs or replace portions of torn screen. Our repair kits are designed with durability in mind -- not to mention convenience in giving you most of the materials you’ll need to complete a DIY repair with little fuss.

What Is Included in a DIY Repair Kit?

Phifer makes two different types of DIY repair kits: Patch repair & Screen repair. These repair kits are suitable for replacing any door, window or patio screen in your home. Let’s walk you through some of the parts and hardware contained in each of the kits.

Phifer Patch Repair Kit

Our Patch Repair Kit is designed to help you repair torn or ripped aluminum screens by installing a small patch over the torn area. Each of Phifer’s patch repair kits contains:

  • 2” x 2” (5.1 x 5.1 cm) screen patches.


How to Patch a Screen

Around the edges of each of the patches are tiny hooks that latch onto your existing screen. Simply bend and secure these hooks onto your existing screen around the torn area.
