Forum Title: How do you remove old Pella roll screens?
I have 40 yr old Pella casement windows with roll screens, 3 of which are broken. These screens roll up like a shade. Pella does not replace these screens any longer. My problem is that I cannot figure out how to remove the 3 that are broken. They seem to be built into the window frame. I've made lots of calls but nobody will help. Any suggestions???????

Welcome to the forums! I couldn't tell from the pics do you know if it's a wood door? or fiberglass? I don't know much about stain finishes on fiberglass but suspect that would take a faux finish technique to make it look right followed by a coat or two of poly. On a wood door you'd sand it down as needed, touch up the stain if needed and then apply a poly over the affected area. Sand and recoat the entire door with a spar poly when dry. UV rays are hard on poly. The best defense is to lightly sand and recoat the door with poly every so often - generally every year or three, it all depends on how much weather the door sees.

That makes good sense. My problem is that the screws are not visable and I can't pop off the cover plate, if that's what it is, at the top of the window. I'm afraid of ruinning the wood. Thanks for your advice though. I really appreciate it. If you have any other suggestions, I'm listening.
