Los Angeles County Exterior Doors FAQ

The answer is yes. Like all other components of your house found inside and outside, exterior doors will also need maintenance and repair. Weatherstrips and sweeps at the bottom of the door should regularly be replaced due to wear and tear. It is also advised to do cleaning and finish maintenance regularly to ensure that the quality of the door is being preserved.

A corner pad is a small foam pad that has an adhesive rear specifically designed to prevent air and water penetration at the area where the weatherstrip and sill meets. This area is vulnerable and should be kept sealed by corner pads. It is recommended that corner pads be installed on all the vertical jambs above the threshold just at the back of the weatherstrip.

Technically, you can use storm doors. However, it is not advisable to use doors that are painted and stained with dark colors and located in the area of your house that is exposed to high heat and direct sunlight. In these cases, you may use vented storm doors that will allow trapped heat to escape, thus extending the life of your exterior door.

If you want the best results, we advise you to purchase pre-finished products. It is because achieving the quality results that you want after the door has been installed would be quite a challenge. Staining and finishing doors on the site can be quite messy, plus you may need to pay extra for the labor.
