Customer Question
Our housse was built in...
Our housse was built in 1948, we have the type of window screens that slide up and down on a track and has a little mechanism on the bottom middle of the screen. I need to find out how to replace the actual screen part, cause it is all ripped out from the frame part of it. I have some pictures if needed.
