PLASTIC MOULDING ON EXTERIOR DOOR IS DEFORMED
The plastic mouldings on exterior doors shall not deform when the door is installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s installation instructions.
One-Year - Work and Materials. · Damage caused by improper maintenance or material, design or work supplied by the homeowner is not covered by the statutory warranty.
Exterior doors not meeting the acceptable condition shall be repaired.
Generally, exterior door manufacturers indicate storm doors are not to be installed over metal exterior doors. Heat buildup between a storm door and the exterior door can increase significantly, damaging any heat-susceptible parts such as plastic mouldings around a window insert or decorative surface-applied mouldings. The homeowner is also cautioned to follow manufacturer’s recommendations on maintenance and painting the mouldings a dark colour, with or without the use of a storm door; dark-coloured moulding is likely to deform and should be avoided.
