Make sure to find a screen door, which is as close as to the opening of the door, from where shopping can be done. Keep in mind that some sort of trimming might be needed to fit appropriately to the main door. If the door is small in size, then range cap can be installed to level it up with the height. Analyze the door size, common weather of your area. Keeping budget in mind would help to get the best deal from the store. 
  1. Collect all the tools: Most of the screen doors come with the installation tools with it like hinges. If it has then it is OK or else bring it separately. Other important tools that would be needed to install it would be metal cutter, rulers, power drill, shims, and screwdrivers. Keep all the tools in a box in an organized manner, so that it would be easy to install. Use small boxes for keeping screws, hinges, and other tiny stuff in a place, so that finding one while installation process is going on, won't be a problem at all. 
  1. Install hinges, handle, and lock: Take someone to help and let him hold the door in a perfect position, so that the mark of the hinges can be taken properly. Once the marking of the hinges is done, then start drilling a hole in the mark with the help of a power drill. Be very careful while using the power drill and keep children out of reach, while the work of the installation is going on. After the work of the power drill is over, then keep the screen door in that position and using screwdrivers to screw with it properly. If handle and lock are not installed, then by using the same method, install it properly. 
  1. Check for accuracy: Make sure that all the screws, the handle, and the lock is properly installed, so that it won't need to be unscrewed and start over again. If some minor mistakes are seen then try to fix it on the spot, so that later it won't be a big deal. If your area always moist, so it becomes important to apply a rain cap in order to protect the screen doors from the moisture and make it last for a good number of years, without any difficult.

Things to keep in mind: Before starting the process, make sure that children are not around as it can be dangerous and when the work of power drill gets over, simply fold the wires and keep it in its place to avoid any hazardous result later on.
