Assuming the solar screen frame is of current industry standard of one inch by seven-sixteenths, and has not changed aesthetically in the Phoenix sun, it can save the homeowner money. Especially, if there are a lot of windows. There are times however that it is not suggested to go with the old solar window screen frames. For instance, if the frames are not big or strong enough to hold the heavier solar screen fabrics that are currently being used or the frame corners are plastic or not sturdy. The last thing anyone wants is to spend the money on replacing the fabric on their window screens, and not be happy with the outcome because the frame will not hold the fabric taut. There are also times where the frames may be plenty sturdy to hold the new age fabrics, however the paint has degraded to the point of no return. In this case it is much more cost effective to replace the frames with new solar screen frames and corners than it would be to attempt to re-paint or powder coat the old frames.
