Dramatic Door Difference: A Door Replacement Job in the East Valley
Recently, a client enlisted our handyman services to replace an exterior door due to issues with the existing one. The primary concerns were a non-functional pet door and improper closure.
Removing the old door proved to be a straightforward task. However, the real challenge lay in ensuring the precise leveling, plumbing, and effective sealing of the new door.
Addressing a significant gap in the old door's rough opening, I used spray foam to enhance the frame's sealing capabilities. This step was crucial for both insulation and creating a more airtight enclosure.
Following the installation, I replaced the interior and exterior trim, applying caulking on both sides. This not only resulted in a seamless transition but also served to further seal any potential gaps.
From start to finish, this entire installation process took approximately four hours.
