Screen door problem
« on: February 15, 2019, 07:31:17 am »
King Tucker decided to go through the screen door.   Itís a bit shredded.    Can it be repaired or does the whole unit need to be replaced?

I am sure it can be repaired, but suggest you call the factory.  They can tell you for sure and possibly suggest a repair location.

Well...better than being pissed ON in Florida... jes' sayin'...  roflol

Do you have the original manual with brand or model? Good place to start googling solutions. If not, the factory may help with ID'ing the assembly.

If you find out, please post. Our screen is starting to give at the bottom, and was coming on list for replacement. I have spare 'pet-proof' screen from our porch, would LOVE to install that. May be too thick..  :beg

Janey,    a couple years ago our dog at the time did the same thing to ours.    I contacted P.C. and brought it in for what I requested to be the least expensive repair it would take to be functional and decent looking.  Not necessarily
'like new'.        They said it needed to be replaced.     Some where around  $ 250 to $ 300,  if memory serves.    Done.  Looks and works better than what was there.
Just my experience,  maybe yours will be different.     In order to keep it (hopefully) from happening again, we bought one of those expandable 'child gates' for doorways,  that we now keep in front of it.  Working so far.

I've been expecting this adventure for me and Miss Elle, so far she has looked and not leaped. I did consider getting a door gate to put in place so now  have to see what I have on hand and then buy something that will fit well. I had a problem with the screen retracting and lucky me I was at the plant so it was fixed with my list.

A new day has dawned now only traveling with Miss Elle . Jim will be watching over us.

Depending on availability at your location, you might find a screen door of the correct size at a local bone yard, one which handles motor homes and trailers which are less than roadworthy.  Although you might have to use the original hinges to install the replacement.

No idea what they did in 2002, but the more recent PC's don't have a "screen door" per se, rather they have a retractable screen that pulls across the entry way about 6" behind the side door itself.  There is no actual door that can be replaced.
