Windows & Doors - Doors (Exterior)

Your exterior doors are manufactured with quality products to provide durability and style.

Care and Maintenance Tips General Information

  • Monitor drafts coming through your exterior doorways. Exterior door sills can be raised or lowered to eliminate drafts by turning the screws located on the bottom plate.
  • Make sure your exterior doors fit snug to the weatherstrip. You can loosen the two screws on the strike plate and move the adjustable plate in or out as needed for a snug fit with the door.
  • Lubricate key holes and door lock mechanisms with a white graphite spray to allow ease of use.

Sliding Glass Doors

  • Keep sliding door tracks clean for smooth operation and to prevent damage to the doorframe.
  • Use a vacuum cleaner to pick up loose materials on the door track and screen track, then use a cloth or sponge with a solution of water and dishwashing liquid to finish cleaning.
  • You may periodically apply a silicone lubricant on the bottom track once dry after cleaning.
  • You can use the same water-based commercial cleaner for cleaning the glass of your sliding glass doors as you use for your windows.

* If you are in a Condo residence please refer to your Condo Association Documents to verify your responsibilities, if any, for the maintenance of these areas.
