Replacing sliding patio door problems
Thanks for the reply. I think I will be fine as to the tops and the sides. The framing is 2x6s so what I did for now is rip off the jamb extensions, pulled the insulation around the perimeter. Everything checked out fine in reguards to the tops and sides. Did show signs of a previous leak but no major signs of damage. Did check the subflooring in front of the door from underneath and the dryrot appears to be concentrated on the subfloor where the jambs of the old door meet. I also pulled the threshold off to check the subfloor in front of the door and it too appears structurely sound but does have staining froma previous leak but no dryrot issues. So my game plan is to cut away the front six inches of the subflooring and replace even though the dryrot is concentrated to the first 2 to 3 inches of the subfloor. After the subfloor replacement I will flash the area and also I am going to install a sill pan for safety sake. Hope all goes well.
