kids damaged casement window screen, company went out of business,. manufacturer exists but wont sell to me

our house has a few casement windows, the kids one day broke the screen so we are afraid to open the window cus of safety concerns in one of the rooms. i found the paper work from the previous home owner left me, and tried to call up the company, they are out of business for the last 3 or 4 years. but i found the manufacturer, they wont sell to me, they are NOT open to the public (or catholic) and told me i have to buy a new screen from one of their resellers but they want like $100 bucks for a simple screen, waht to do? i have the measurements, the screen has the little spring loaded pins to hold it in place, i just want really a new frame for the screen i can re-use the screen but no one wants to help me

I am confused... is just the screening cooked or the whole frame? If its just the screening, call around. My local Home Hardware does a brisk business in screens and actually can make screen frames as well.

If its the frame too, then call a glass shop. Out of warranty $60 for a screen from a manufacturer or my local Home Hardware is the minimum I think.

Just make your own. They sell frames that you just cut yourself or a full kit with frame, mesh, tools, etc. Some examples:

$60 will be the best you can do. Find a local glass shop.

I dunno, ever since I was little, My dad told me we are Catholic so we go to Catholic School not public school. Then one day we were driving on Orfus Road, and my dad saw a store and said "oh look, its open to the Public" and I said "aww man, we can't go cus its not open to the catholic" my dad tried to explain why i was wrong but I was so upset that I did not listen to his reason.

well i've been super duper busy with work, family, etc. but im going to just find 4-5 window companies and go with the first person who gets back to me who can get the screen the fastest, im going to give them not just the dimensions of the screen frame but where the spring loaded pin holes are so they can put them in the new ones. i hate it when companies go out of business it messes people up.
