Sticky Doors

Posted on August 6, 2015 at 1:38pm 0 Comments

The riddle is: "How many sides does a door have?" The answer is 6, While the vertical edges may be painted, the top and bottoms may not be sealed, which is different from just painting. Most door manufacturers will not honor a warranty if this is neglected. The styles may transmit water vapor along the entire height of the door through end grain, and some side expansion of the rails may occur.
