a. Paint/Stain finish:
- Paint – there is no maintenance on a painted fiberglass/steel door system. Just wash the door down with soap and water as needed.
- Stain – every 4-6 years (depending on how much sun exposure your door has), you will need to reapply a clear coat of spar urethane. Reapplying this coat whenever the door is looking dull will bring back its beautiful lustre and ensure the stained finish is protected underneath.
Multipoint: Apply lubrication to your multipoint lock twice a year; spray silicone spray or 3 in 1 oil into each latch and deadbolt area (by the oil can symbol). Move the latches in and out a few times to lubricate the interior mechanisms.
Pop the pins out and lubricate with grease if your hinges are squeaky.
d. Air by sill:
Loosen the screws on the sill to bring the sill up in height. Tighten screws to lower the sill. Putting a piece of paper between the sweep and the sill will let you know you’ve adjusted it to the right height- if the paper is tight to pull out, the sill is too high; if you can remove the paper with no resistance, the sill is too low.
