It was discussed previously but the best place is Warren County Glass, entrance on Washington Street by the Pres Church parking lot. Great business and will replace splines, cut the screens and even custom make a whole new frame if you need it.


Thanks so much. Perfect.

Second Warren County Glass. I have never used them for screens, but had windows replaced there. Very good job.

How much do the charge to replace the screens?
I took my screens someplace else once to get replaced and foolishly didn't ask the price. I almost fell over when I picked them up and charged me about $25 per screen.

I second Hometown Hardware. It was a long time ago so I don't remember the price but they did it very quickly for me.


I remember the custom screens and storm windows on grandma's house on Prospect street. They had numbered tacks on the frames and windows because they were built on site and were not interchangeable.

I recently had a fiberglass window screen fitted up for my window which I got fitted up by my neighbouring window installer called heritage home design windows and doors
http://www.heritagehomedesign.ca/ Fibergalss is flexible and easy to install.They do not dent easily and they don’t unravel.They are mostly available in charcoal and silver gray colors.The mesh would be about 18X16 and the diameter about .011

I just used Amish Mike in Mt. Olive to redo my sliding glass door screens

LibertyThinker - The posts are not even a year old, they're all current. I definitely recommend Warren County Glass not only for the screens, but windows, storm doors, etc.


Hometown Hardware was pretty cheap and quick for just the screen replacement- not the frame.

One of the advantages of using WC Glass over some other places is cutting out the middle man. Some stores will provide the service, but all they really do is sub the work out to another place like WC glass, anyway, and take a cut of your money.

I had some screens done at WC Glass, earlier this year. It's kind of a "hole in the wall" place, but as always, they were friendly, professional, and got the jobs done quickly and for a good price, with no hassle.

Guessing Warren County Glass is now closed with the owner retired out of state? Anyone local to rescreen beat up window screens?


Netcong Hardware can replace screens.

I called One Stop today. They said they take about a week to work on the screens and run $20 a screen for an avg size window. I saw Blue Ridge Lumber mentioned on here in another thread for screens so I gave them a call. They don't do screens and pointed me back to One Stop in Washington on Route 31 for any rescreening work. Also saw Lowes mentioned and they don't do screens either (At least not the Hackettstown location). My commute to work takes me through Netcong...will give Netcong Hardware a call for pricing.


I thought the screens I took to One Stop were average size..but 2 of them cost $78.00 to repair...OUCH....

If all else fails, it’s not too difficult to replace the screens yourself! I did quite a few of my own a few years ago when I was pregnant and Zika was a huge threat. You can buy the replacement mesh screening and the tool you need to secure the edges at Home Depot or Lowes.


There’s a glass place on Main Street in Stanhope that is repairing my Anderson window screens-with the metal spline. These are for a bit larger windows as they’re from the front porch-$23 per screeen.

Bumping this up with a new question..tried Googling but still have questions. I've replaced the screening twice on the screen insert on my storm door. It's pretty old and no idea of the brand. I would like to replace the entire insert as it has metal strip separating the top from the bottom and I hate it. Feeling like at this point, if I could just be the insert might be a good option. Here's my question, is that a generic thing that I could just take the insert to Home Depot or Lowes or anywhere and get a new one? Tried looking on line but I think I need to know what I'm doing, LOL.
Thanks

FYI Andresen's run $33 to $70 bucks at Home Depot. Might be easier sometimes to go new.

I just got 2 window screens made from scratch for my kitchen. Went to Custom Glass & Design in Stanhope on Main Street.

They fit perfectly.


Ead..did they make you a new frame or just put new screening in your existing frame or did you get a whole new frame? Was it pricey if you got a new frame?

Washington One Stop, Route 31 just north of the Washington Shop Rite did a great job replacing window screens

They made all new frames with the screens. I gave them my broken one.

Pricey, not sure as I couldn't find anyone else to make them. They were about $45 each.


For those living west of Hackettstown, these places in addition to Washington One Stop replace window screens:

Belvidere Glass & Mirror: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Belvidere-Glass-Mirror/152581581450909

Rigo General Hardware: https://www.facebook.com/rigogeneralhardware/

Ritter Lumber: https://ww3.truevalue.com/leritterlbrco/

Belvidere Glass & Mirror just recently replaced many of my screens. Very reasonable pricing. He's located at a private house right on Route 519 on the White Twp/Harmony Twp border. It's best to call him (number/address in link above) first before stopping by. He can get very busy thus your screens may take more than a week to complete.

Can you recommend someone to repair a glass sliding door that doesn't slide very well? It is a very large door about 8ft high and 200 pounds


You can try Matt’s Glass on Rt206 in Flanders.

An 8' sliding door sounds like it may hang on its sliding mechanism like a commercial application, it may not glide on the bottom. It depends on the manufacturer. I have seen both types in a 96" high sliding door assembly. Either way a door that size would be difficult to operate if it's misaligned for sure.

I would check out these folks in Stanhope as they do both residential and commercial glass work. I and a few family members have used them with great success.

Well the people on the phone seemed very helpful and knowledgeable but they told me they were going to call me back as to when they could come out for a estimate. Its been 2 weeks and no callback so I guess its time to move on


That's a bummer. I know they are very busy but if they say they are going to call they should follow through.

I would give them a reminder call.

I just had them cut a simple $30 glass shelf for me. I stopped in with my template and he said it would be a week and they would call when ready. I forgot about it but at the start of the second week I called and was able to pick it up later that day. I don't know if my reminder was the push or they already had the item in the job que for the day.

Good luck!


Thanks Greg

That worked


Great! They really are nice people and do great work. The family members who used them to install large elaborate master bath shower enclosures etc. were both very pleased.
