I’ve gotten a couple of call backs on exterior doors I have replaced with never rot door jambs. The complaint is that during heavy rain, the floor is getting wet around the bottom side of the door (interior side of course).
I’m installing all the latest and greatest self adhesive flashings, jambsills, and premium thesholds. Each peice of flashing is overlaped by the one above it.
I’m setting the doors in with 1/8th on top and latch side, 3/32 on hinge side. thresholds are adjustable and set just tight enough to cause little resistance when door closes, and got dripcap door sweeps on. The interior of door is hinged and latched flush with jambs.
I’m thinking the stock weather striping that comes with the never rot door jamb kit may not be holding up to heavy rain exposure.
Anyone else deal with this problem? Are there any other weather stippings that would be recommended to replace the never rot stock stuf.
