Weatherstrip on screens

I have Jeld-wen replacements windows with a half screen. The weatherstrip at the top is coming off on some of them. Is it OK to glue it back and what kind of glue or is it best to just replace the strip?

It may not be permanent but I would start with a double sided tape (the white foam looking stuff). If that doesn't work then I would try a thin film of silicon glue.

Did you try calling Jen-wen and asking is replacement weather strip is available?

That's a good idea to call them and see if I can get it from there. I'm going to do that first and if they don't have any, the double sided tape sounds good. Didn't think of either, duh!
Thanks!
