Mr. Cardwell called me from my PennySaver advertisement about the door that he wanted repaired. He wanted the door repaired and he did not want a new door. The door was seen in the winter months of Apple valley. Apple valley had a monsoon condition and all exterior doors were soaked.
There are four steps to this post, this post shows that some doors can not be repaired.
The problem was that the door was wet and needed to dry out completely. The addition of the wood putty did not help the situation. It added another layer that the door had to dry out. The skin of the door had been peeled of by the owners dog and the door was not painted before the monsoon came to Apple Valley. Therefore the rain had deeply saturated into the door fibers. The job could not be completed. In the end, I placed another new pre-hung door in the space.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the door had wood putty placed on the bottom of the door using a flat scraper.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows a heavy application of wood putty.
