I am having some trouble locating a replacement retractable screen for my vinyl window. The screen slides out as I open my window, which opens from right to left. I can manually retract the screen if I want an open window.

The screen ripped and now I need to replace the cartridge. I have removed it, but can not locate a replacement. I do not know what model or company the windows came from as they were here when I purchased this home.

Please help!!! :shock:

There was a company called Magic Windows that utilized those screens. You might google them and see if it looks the same.

Can you just re-screen the cartridge? I recall fixing a Provia self storing storm door with the cartridge screen and while it was easier to just swap it out, it appeared to be serviceable.

You might need some two sided/ bugger tape.

Is that the technical designation... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am going to have to use that in the future.
