Forum Title: Screen repair tape
Quick question on fiberglass screen repair. These screen repair tape they sell at home centers... It looks very similar to drywall/cement board mesh tape. How different are they? I had a large tear and would like to do a temp repair until the screen guy can fit me into his schedule next week. I do have a roll of wall mesh tape, can I use it for that or is there something really special with the screen mesh tape?

There is no guarantee that the brick won't get damaged. If you can cut the edges with a masonry blade, you have a chance.

You would be better off using duct tape. Your mesh tape is not sticky enough to stay on the screen for long.

Are you guys referring to the drywall cement board mesh tape I have being useless, or the STANDARD SCREEN REPAIR MESH TAPE that is being sold for that specific purpose being useless? That's what I am trying to ask, what is the difference, anyone knows? The standard screen repair tape is not a temp thing, but I only need it to stay for about a week before I replace the entire screen.
