Window Screens

We had screens made in 2006 to cover the ugly crazed windows.  The screens block out 65-70% of the UV which helps stop further crazing.  After 9 seasons in the tropics the screens were really looking bad.   So, New Windows deserve New Screens.

The screens did a good job but the sun took it's toll.

I sewed up the screens in the apartment and here they are being installed.  The snaps are supposed to be self piercing but there are around 6 layers of Sunbrella in the corners so I heated up a nail with the propane torch and pre-made the holes.

 This picture shows the old and new screens.
