New pre-hung door 30-inch
Mr. Victor Longpont hired my services to remove his garage door that had become damaged after a bad rain storm. The door had not been painted for over 30 years, and the bottom of the door was damaged by a badly worn door sweep that allowed water into the bottom of the door.
This post is the introduction to a 15-post that shows how to replace a damage side garage door.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows that after the door is removed the water damage and the bottom of the door. The metal door shoe was badly rusted because the door held so much water. It was just a matter of time that this door would have fallen off its hinges.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the bottom of the garage door, completely full of water. The bottom of the door is deformed and still has water seeping out of it. The door had spores growing out of the bottom of the door.
