Weather stripping?

Recommended Posts

$1500 ??? If the door came with that jamb they didn't shim it correctly to close the gap.

If it is just a slab door installed in an existing opening the contractor is a jack leg criminal.

A prehung door without a window is like $185......labor to install $200 average.

If you are done with the installer the fix was above about putting wood strips on the outside

and then you can get some nail on weather stripping that goes around that.

Yup. The door is too small for the frame. Who installed this? I need to know so if I am ever in Calgary I'll know *not* to call them for anything.

Well, the place is called Supreme Windows and Doors. Every time I see one of their commercials on TV it gets under my skin because I thought they did a bad job. Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm going to call them tomorrow and tell them (the manager) to come out and look at it.

Usually when I make a call of this sort and ask for the manager, the phone answerer will say, "He's really busy. Maybe I can help you." That 's part of their script. I follow up with, "I'm sure you're well trained, but I'm about to say some things that you don't deserve to hear." That usually gets a , "Very well then, I'll put you through."

 

 

That is a p*** poor installation job. Good thing you got that door blocker bar. That latch wouldn't hold a Cub Scout back. It's barely holding the door shut. Another thing to look at is if the top and bottom of the door is tighter than at the latch.

 

IF this is the case, the numbskulls who installed the jamb didn't shim it properly and the screws they put in to hold it to the wall stud have pulled the latch jamb out of alignment.

 

Regardless who installed the jamb, the door installer should have re-shimmed it.

I'd say some Gorilla Glue would fill that gap.

 

 

My wife says she has seen snakes that would fit through that, too....

 

 

Ain't I just a WORLD of help???

 

 

 

(I'll go along with "have the folks who installed it come fix it"....)

that's the worst installed door i've ever seen.

the company should change their name to Supremely Stupidly Installed Doors and Windows.

i would recommend you hunt those dimwits down and maim them.
