SWELLING ISSUE – The existing French door in this cottage was designed for interior use only, so over time, moisture had caused swelling and damaged the bottom of the doors. I installed a new exterior pre-hung steel patio door (Masonite – 20 year residential warranty). A pre-hung door is factory weatherstripped with an adjustable aluminum sill to accomplish an impeccable weather tight seal. This door features argon insulated double pane full windows with interior tan grilles. Having the grilles between the panes of glass makes it SUPER easy to clean (as opposed to cleaning 15 individual panels of glass per door previously). The glass also has a low-e glazing to help resist fading of interior furnishings. Due to the cottage being 115+ years old, the rough opening was anything but plumb (2″ off from top to bottom). I had to chip away at two opposing corners to accomplish a square fit. All in all, the door looks great and will resist weather for years to come! I have a flat rate for this type of installation, so hit me up for details! Estimates are FREE – 419-212-3200.
