1. Door must be correctly treated without delay and prior to hanging. It is most important that flat top and bottom edges are completely and fully treated before the door is hung. Both faces and all four edges, and any “cut-out”
such as letter boxes require full treatment. It is vital that the “end” grain is completely protected as this is where moisture can most easily penetrate causing swelling, splitting and warping.
Mortice locks fitted at rail joint can result in removal of one or more dowels, so weakening the joint. Mortice lock cavity should be kept to minimum size and not fitted at rail joint.
2. Usually five coats of a proprietor branded polish/paint should be
satisfactory but you should treat door in accordance with the polish/paint manufacturers instructions.
3. Timber is a natural grown product, subject to changes due to variations
of humidity and temperature. We try to ensure that the timer has been prepared to make it suitable. It is obvious we cannot know all the circumstances surrounding every situation in which our products are stored
and installed. We cannot therefore give any guarantee against shrinkage, warping or splitting.
4. Regular maintenance of External Doors should be maintained to prevent breakdown of paint film and so protect the fibre from deterioration.
