best way to build screens
working on my porch project for a while now. documented in detail here.
I'd like to build some screens like this guy did. Got this pic from the contractor talk site.
Wondering what the best way to build these screens would be.
Should I miter cut the corners?
Better to use 2 X 2s or 1 X 2s?
And is it ok to use screws? What size? Wish I had a nail gun.
I'd like to add the screens I build to these openings.
Thanks for your help!
There are various screening hardware products. You would follow the directions of the manufacturer you're using.
I've yet to build one but I would think that morise and tenon butt joints would be stronger than miter joints.
Regarding the building of screens, I simply stapled the screen material to the structure, then covered the structure and staples with a trim piece. I suggest metal screening here (something more durable than the fiberglass screen).
