Mrs. H. calls my repair service when her home in North Hollywood needed repairs. This time her bedroom patio needed tile and track was leaking inside the bedroom.
This post shows the fifteen steps to cleaning and sealing a damage patio tract and tile.
Step 1: The head and sill are the upper and lower tracks that hold the doors. The jambs are the vertical parts of the frame. Two panel patio doors have one fixed glass panel and one operating panel which slides. The screen is usually installed on the outside.
Step 2: Above fig.1 above shows the stucco below the lower tracks had a was a huge hole the entire perimeter of the lower tract.
Step 3: Fig.2 below shows more damage near the lower patio tracks.
