Fixing a sliding screen door gap

Is there a gap on the bottom of your sliding screen door?  Do you see a bit of light somewhere around the screen frame? maybe at the top you see a crack of light coming in, or even the screen door does not close properly leaving a crack on top or the bottom.

Gap at bottom of screen door frame

If you have a bit of light coming in at the bottom it could be that your screen frame is raised too much and need to be lowered.  To lower the door you will need to lower the roller on each site of the bottom, the right and the left. With a philips screw driver just put it in the side of the frame or the top part and turning counter clockwise you will notice the screen door drop.

If you have light coming in at the top of the door then what your patio screen needs to be raised to cover the gap.  To raise screen follow the instructions above but turning the screw driver clockwise instead and make sure the frame is rising.

Some porch screendoors have a top and bottom channel that makes them universal, this means one size fits all.  Both top and bottom channels are adjustable and are specifically made for covering gaps and finding a proper tight fit.  They are not very good sliding doors bt will last a few seasons with minor sliding problem.

Adjusting the top rails on these screens is fairly easy and u can buy one at your local hardware store like Home depot.  They come with plastic rollers and can NOT be adjusted, thats why you have to adjust the channels.
