Home Improvement Project #2: Window Screens

There have been lots of ‘fun’ things we have found throughout our home that we weren’t expecting to NOT have.  Window screens was definitely one of those ‘fun’ things.  Since we had 12 windows that needed that item, we recruited a company to come out and do this.  We were VERY pleased with this decision.

We opted to go with Screenman Mobile Screening Service.  They bring a box truck and do the consultation as well as installation in one visit.  The gentleman that came was extremely friendly and we had a wonderful experience with him and the product.  He did inform us of some disappointing tricks of the builder trade: windows typically come with the screens and builders remove the screens and opt to charge the home owner an additional fee to get the screens.  Bummer, right?!  I was wondering why every place I called for screen quotes kept asking me if I was looking for a new window.  No, folks, I have the windows in my house, I need screens so I can let us all breathe during warmer months!

If you need new screens or a repair and you don’t feel comfortable getting the kits and supplies at a local home improvement/hardware store, I really recommend this company.

Next month’s project (June) is going to be changing the cabinets in our kitchen from the maple stain to white.  We will be trying out the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations.  I’ve done research over the last couple of weeks through blogs and website reviews and know some tips, but overall, consumers are quite happy with the product and price.  Once we take on that project, it will give us a better time and cost projection for altering the trim around the house along with cabinets in bathrooms.  If you have any tips on this particular product, I would love to hear them!
