Are you talking about just repairing/replacing the screen?

If so, just go to HD and purchase some fiberglass screen and a $2 spline tool. Measure the present screen and purchase one a few inches larger, in all directions..

Remove the rubber spline and old screen. Place the new screen over the screen door overlapping the edges and using the spline tool, roll the spline into the screen/groove while making the screen tight as you go.

Cut off the excess screes with a safety razor blade.

The good folks at Bunkers of St. Croix make and repair screens. I've tried others, but these guys do a great job.
