Installation Recommendations for Codel Entry Systems
The proper installation and maintenance of a prehung door unit is absolutely critical to its performance and longevity. Without proper installation, a door unit will not fulfill its proper role in a home and can be a constant burden. Splashback from the patio deck is a major source of leakage and a prime cause of rot and water damage. Protect unit by immediately sealing all six sides, raising it above deck level 6″, providing a 24″ (or greater) overhang, and by sloping the deck outward.
