Hopefully someone will read this and be able to offer some advice
Thanks to the goofs at Chamberdoor, and my lackluster ability to do basic home improvement tasks I some how managed to fark up the handle holes on my storm door. I now have 3 extra holes towards the outside edge of the door that are not covered by the handle, and the great part is they just miss being covered... thats my luck folks.
Anyways the "awesome" (NOT) folks over at Chamberdoor said I'd need to buy a new outside edge piece for the cost of $75...no thanks..
isn't there any easier cheaper way to fix my error??? I thought maybe brass reinforcer, or handle with larger base...any ideas you guys might have... I realize at this point a fix would be a sto gap solution...
*sigh* I HATE not being handy...it creates so much stress.
Thanks so much in advance... I got so frustrated at this thing yesterday I may have had a mini heart attack
Ooooh, that's bad. You mentioned using a "brass reinforcer", IF that is the type that wraps around the door frame and will not interfere with the latching/locking mechanism, this may be your best bet. OR, if it just covers the outside area and the holes this will work also. IF you use this, maybe placing a brass "kick plate" at the bottom of the door will make it look as if it belongs there. Both of these total should not be the $75 quoted for the door edge piece. Good Luck, David
