Putting in the Doors
Tuesday the doors were delivered.
By the time we got down there, he had already put in the door that goes from our bedroom to the back porch. But I got to see him install the front door.
First the installer trimmed the opening the door was to go into.
He installed the threshold. It has a piece of hard plastic over it to protect it until we are moving in.
Jamsill Guard, Sill Pan Flashing
Jamsill Guard® is an adjustable sill pan flashing designed to prevent water damage from window and door leaks. Made from quality, high impact ABS plastics, Jamsill Guard® will not deteriorate or corrode over time. Jamsill Guard’s simple design is inexpensive, easy to install, and more “user friendly” than comparable products on the market. Our multi-piece telescoping design allows on-site adjustablility to fit all rough openings and features sloped weep areas to help evacuate moisture to the exterior of the structure. Jamsill Guard® is bonded together in the field using PVC cement, creating a one-piece sill pan flashing beneath your door or window.
The installer removed some wood that was holding the parts together.
He put a bead of sealant all the way around the door.
Then he pushed the door into the opening.
He opened the door and put in one screw to hold the door in place.
He used shims to adjust and level the door. He made a lot of little adjustments.
He pushed in a lot of shims to make sure the door was snug and secure.
Then he put the rest of the screws into place.
He put in the door handle and deadbolt and the plates for them.
So here is the front door! I really love it!
