Pull out the splines and replace the screen. Only difference might be the spline material. The splines might be metal.

One thing that I would watch is that if you try to pull the material to tight to the horizontal edges it will bow the door in. I always use something to maintain the width of the door when you attach the material and roll the spline back into the tracks.
