Our exclusive Moisture Control System assures that our custom wood garage doors will last for years to come in whatever environment they may be. This system includes:
Wet glazed windows: each piece of glass is sealed in place by a wet bead of sealant.
Drip Cap: a beveled molding recessed into the surface material along the top edge of the bottom trim board. The drip cap prevents water from pooling on the bottom board and seeping into the door thus minimizing the possibility of mold or wood rot.
Vent Holes: holes drilled into each section of the garage door’s interior to facilitate the natural movement of moisture within the door caused by temperature and humidity changes. This prevents the damaging build-up of moisture within the door’s interior cavity.
No exposed vertical end grain on door bottom: horizontal cap board seals off the end grain of the tongue and groove surface material, which tends to “wick” rain and snow moisture.
Beveled trim board under the lite sections: sheds water and prevents pooling and potential leakage into the door’s interior cavity, again maximizing the life of the door.
