Windows & Doors - Doors (Interior)

Interior doors will settle during the first year of ownership and may require some adjustment.

Care and Maintenance Tips General Information

  • Interior wood doors will expand and contract in width due to the changing temperature and humidity in the home. Doors will be wider in summer and in humid periods and narrower in dry weather conditions. Therefore, do not be hasty in adjusting, planing or cutting your door, as it will tend to correct itself.
  • Bifold doors will need to be adjusted from time to time. Keep tracks, pivots and guides free of paint and dirt. A silicone spray applied to the guide edges of the tracks will allow the doors to operate smoothly.
  • Lubricate key holes and door lock mechanisms with a white graphite spray to allow ease of use.
