    The kit came with all the pieces and parts exactly as we specifired.
    The kits were very well packaged!
    The assembly of the screens was strightforward and relatively easy. The hardest part was inserting the spline with the heavy solar screen. After assembling three, I got the knack for keeping the screen straight and even, so the last three were perfect. (I need to redo the first three)

  2. A SALINAS (verified owner)

    Needed to replace screens, to avoid mosquitoes, more so with the possible problem of West Nile Virus.

    Got the screens in a timely manner, just in time to a weather in the 90s, very unusual for San Francisco.

    Order fit window exactly….ordered another two screens for other windows. Order arrived on the scheduled day. As my other screens need replacing, I will order them from DIYSCREENSDIRECT!

  4. Tom (verified owner)

    Very nice, everything there. Shipping was high, but order was good.

  5. Jon Scruggs (verified owner)

    Screen sent was cut too short and did not fit the frame which was cut correctly. A new screen was promptly sent. I would definitely use this company again.

  6. Marvin Best (verified owner)

    I just completed assembly of two solar screens. The entire task from unpacking parts to completion of screen installation took approximately 5 hours. The parts I ordered totaled $110 including shipping. The lowest estimate I got from a local contractor for construction & installation of those same two screens was $385. So I paid myself $55 an hour for making my own and I am extremely happy with the difference those screens make in my living room comfort during 110+ desert summer days.

  7. Marco Rivera (verified owner)

    Assembly was a snap! Everything matched my measurements perfectly.Pleased with quality (90 degree angles were cut rather than using a plastic corner piece). I am now enjoying a noticeable reduction in heat in my master bedroom where the screens are installed. Definitely glad I stuck with the 80% as the reduction of light with the 90% would have been too much.

  8. Ron B (verified owner)

    They were sturdier than I expected, well made, Kit was easy to assemble.
    Very nice, thank you

  9. Robert Gonzalez (verified owner)

    I purchased a solar screen DIY kit for a fraction of the cost if I were to contract it out. The merchandise arrived very quickly and was exactly what I ordered. It was a snap to assemble and I would recommend DIY screens direct to anyone needing their products. There customer service (Lynda) is a real pleasure to work with

  10. Robert Streeter (verified owner)

    The screens came in a timely manner. They were easy to assemble and the sizes were exact. I ordered the 90% shade and they work fabulously. I will certainly use your product for any future screens and have already recommended this to others in our park.

  11. Bob (verified owner)

    I don’t usually review products or services, only if the experience is exceptional – good or bad. The screen kits were good quality and not that hard to assemble. What made the experience exceptional was the fast service and Lynda. Pick out what you want on the web site but call the 800 number and talk to Lynda to see what I mean.

  12. Benjamin (verified owner)

    Very happy with product and service!

  13. Pete Wilson (verified owner)

    Outstanding customer service. Linda is the best. Highly reccomend.

  14. Krystal Dorman (verified owner)

    Great quality screens, strong frames, everything is cut nice. Definitely save a lot of money putting the screens together yourself.
    Minus one star for shipping. Corners of the frames were not protected, which allowed them to scratch other frames (scratched off some of the white color), also the corners damaged some of the screens.
    Can’t beat the price otherwise.

  15. Dori Dabbs (verified owner)

    Product arrived on time and exactly as ordered. I had a little trouble anchoring the screen together and I called customer service. They were very helpful and provided guidance on how to best assemble. Got the screen completely assembled and installed. Very happy with the product.

  16. Michael Wencel (verified owner)

    Easy, the best. You gave me way too much spline but maybe that is for future mishaps. Maybe offer a verticle crossbar?

  17. Kelly DeVoogd (verified owner)

    I needed a large 72×60 solar screen for my master bedroom window. Quotes I received we 2 1/2 times what I ended up paying at DIY. I read some review an decided I would give them a try.
    The kit arrived in a few days and it took only about 10-15 minutes to put it together. It was also a great chance to do a small project with my son that he sees every time we come home.
    It looks and works great! I would highly recommend them and will use them again.
    The wife is happy so I am very happy.

  18. John Reck (verified owner)

    Received sun screens. Some parts of the frames were scratched but on the inside so not to be seen. Did not receive the extra clips that I was told I would get but able to secure screens and will add more later. Overall I would recommend your company to others and will buy more if needed.


  19. Robert Pelcher (verified owner)

    excellent product better than expected have reffered product to others

  20. Hans (verified owner)

    Exactly as advertised, good price and quick delivery. Website not easiest to navigate and I did not see where it said to subtract 1/2″ from measurements to allow for corners but they still fit anyway.

  21. A J (verified owner)

    Quality could not have been better and that includes the cuts as well as the dimensions. Shipped in a timely manner with all the pieces in tact. I have already recommended DIY Screens to an on looker and would recommend to anyone.

  22. Mark Strovink (verified owner)

    Minus one star for some scratches on the frame pieces and minor imperfections in corner cuts. 4 stars for price, quality, speed, including a spline tool and great people.

    I recommend DIYSCREENDIRECT. This is my second order with them.

    SunTex 90 blocks enough air that a box fan will starve for air. Over 115 on the sunny side of the screen yet the sunshine on the floor made it barely warmer than the unlit part. Wife loves it.

  23. Bruce Frankel (verified owner)

    Order arrived in a timely fashion. Unfortunately screen material was not as ordered in size, and was 10″ too short. Called and replacement received.

  24. John Kearney (verified owner)

    Everything arrived in perfect shape and well packed.
    Each frame was easy to assemble, just by using my rubber hammer.
    Solar material is very tough, and was easy to mount—just run flat side of tool first, then follow with stretching the rubber with one hand, crimp in with curved valley side of tool.
    I will certainly recommend your company.

  25. Neil Kohl (verified owner)

    Overall the kits were good. One kit was received damaged, and replacement frame was cheerfully sent.
    My problem was that some of the spline sent was sub-standard (uneven in size). It was noticed too late to ask for a replacement. To me this kept it from being a five star project.

  26. William Alt (verified owner)

    The solar screens were delivered in a few days and are well made. I will be ordering more.

  27. Tim Harmann (verified owner)

    The finish on the screen frames was rubbed off in areas. I will have to paint them. Could have been package better.

  28. Michael Blau (verified owner)

    Great products and even better customer service. Lynda has been wonderful in working with me before I place my large order for the whole house. Highly recommend this company and they stand behind their product.

  29. Michael Blau (verified owner)

    I’m trying to find the correct solar screens for my home. So Lynda has been working with me to help make sure my final decision is something I can live with. They go above and beyond any company I’ve worked with before. Once I make my final decision I will be ordering about 12 screen kits for my home. Have purchased two so far and the measurements are perfect based on what I sent them. Highly recommend this group.

  30. Jack Stone (verified owner)

    Just what I expected.. good quality and sturdy! And love listening to Linda talk (excellent service)

  31. Eric T Bronger (verified owner)

    Outstanding service and staff was very helpful, would highly recommend. Good pricing , Fast delivery.

  32. Paul Hambrick (verified owner)

    Wow, What a difference the screens made. I have double pain windows throughout the house. The front of my house gets hammered by the afternoon so checked the temperature at the windows before I installed the new solar screens. The highest temperature recorded at 5:30 pm was 140 degrees. After installing the solar screens on front the next day the temperature dropped down to 90 degrees. My wife was amazed at the difference. Next, is to install solar screens to the back part of the house that gets hammered by the morning sun. Great Product!!!!
    Thanks, Paul

  33. Cesar Chao (verified owner)

    excellent precut, easy assembly and install, saved lots of money

  34. Fallon Napolitani (verified owner)

    perfect size and shipped in a strong tube box. easy to assemble

  35. Bruce Frankel (verified owner)

    Third order and everything is spot on! Customers need to remember to provide exact measurements, because that’s what you’ll get.

  36. DHO (verified owner)

    Over my decades of DIY efforts, I have ordered many products for assembly or application. Frequently parts were missing. Holes drilled in the wrong places. etc. That is NOT the case with this vendor. All parts and materials arrived quickly. Cut materials were done with care and precision. The result was a very pleasant DIY experience for this nearly 80-year old!

  37. Janice Stires (verified owner)

    All the kits came exactly as ordered. The frames are all heavy duty and of high quality. The price is comparable to buying at the local hardware store, but you get more for your money. I am so happy I found DIY Screens Direct!

  38. L. BORDEN (verified owner)

    I was looking at buying all the components through the local home improvement store when I found your website. It was much cheaper buying through your company (even with the shipping cost) and it allowed me to customize the color of the screen and frame which was not an option locally. All pieces where cut perfectly and everything was included. Only thing missing was instructions to add the cross bar into the frame (which I found on a web search). Total assembly took only about 10 minutes. I’m so pleased with your company and the solar screen kit that I’ll be ordering another one.

  39. Ralph Winston (verified owner)

    The pieces for the two custom screens I ordered arrived quickly and we’re great quality. The miter cuts for the corners we exact and the instructions made them simple to install. After installing them on two windows that face west and get full sun, I measured a temperature drop that averaged around 105 at the window frame indoors pre-install, down to about 82 degrees after the installation of the solar screens. Its made a huge difference in the comfort of those two rooms. My AC unit thanks them! Highly recommend installing these window screens.

  40. P L (verified owner)

    Packaged well, easy to assemble, looks great! (directions were a bit sparse ). I had some reservations as to whether I could actually put together solar screens. Your customer service rep (Linda) was so very helpful with my questions regarding what clips to order and details on how to measure. Pushing in the spline was hard to do, but for “rookies’ we were able to turn out a pretty nice product! Thanks! We will be ordering more to finish the rest of the house.

  41. Philip Watson (verified owner)

    The dimension were as ordered and the frame was easy to assemble. The quality of all of the components seem pretty good. Only problem was paint chips and scratches on the aluminum frame which may have been caused by the insertion tool rolling around in the package. Better packaging could prevent this in the future.

  42. Charles Jeschelnig (verified owner)

    The ordering process was amazing and the assistance provided was easy and quick.

  43. paul powell (verified owner)

    Product came well packaged but a crossbar was left out. Re-ordered the bar but it came in at wrong size (quick ship by the way). Still waiting for the replacement. Your customer service rep is excellent. Your staff who checks the items for quality of size and inclusion needs reviewing.

  44. Tim B

    I ordered one screen door. Came promptly and securely packaged without crossbar. I contacted customer service (Lynda) and had the crossbar within a few days. Good customer service convinced me to order two more doors. No problem with this second shipment.

  45. Mark

    Our custom made screen for our kitchen window arrived today. The first thing we couldn’t help but notice, the frame is black. We ordered a white frame, which is what is stated on the invoice. In ordering the hardware, without a picture, we thought that the description was what we needed. It isn’t. We can make it fit, although not correctly. Our main disappointment is that our custom made screen has a black frame when what we wanted and ordered was a white frame.

  46. Mark Sporysz

    We ordered a screen kit for our kitchen window. When it arrived, the frame was black when we had ordered white, as was stated on the enclosed invoice. Also the tabs are not what we had thought they would be. Going by a description, and not having a picture, it was tough to know what we were ordering. I sent an email the day that the kit arrived regarding receiving a black frame instead of the white that we had ordered. We received a phone call the very next day informing us that a complete kit would be sent with the correct color frame that we had originally ordered. Now THAT is customer service!!! (Even with the wrong tabs, we will make the screen work!)

  47. Lili Sheedy

    I recently purchased a double retractable screen door for our French doors. The website videos made the doors look to open and glide easily. However, they do not.
    Our doors had a problem out of the box. One side would not retract at all. We had a contractor help us do the install and he was able to get the door to retract some. However, it is very slow and the top part of the screen pulls in slower than the lower part causing the screen to gap and fall out of the track. On top of that, the handle on the second door broke free and now lays at the bottle of the door track.
    I have tried several times to reach the company for support. I received some email instructions which did not help. I need someone to do a live call with me so they can see the issues and help us resolve the problems. We want the door to work but cannot get support. At this point I feel like I have been ripped off.
