Hello tommyboy and welcome to the community.


I have to be  honest with you I’ve never installed bronze screening  and I’m not sure if its stretches  like aluminum  screening which I have installed  on a summer porch.


And the way we got the screens tight was by stapling one side of the screen to the frame and stapling the other side to the piece of 2"x2" lumber.

One guy would pull on the 2"x2" piece while the other guy would immediately staple the screen once it stretches.

This worked just fine for us. Once the screen was stapled we would nail a mitered piece of 1”x2” lumber over the previously stapled section creating an illusion of the window frame.

I think this is going to work just fine as long you have a fit helper :smileyhappy:, pneumatic staple gun and little bit of extra screen that can be stapled on a piece of board.
