Replacing Doors in masonry wall


But I suspect that anything except the basic brickmolded door unit would cost more. When I was investigating just buying the door slab, the store guy said it would be cheaper to buy the unit and remove the slab from it than to order just a slab.

Replacing Doors in masonry wall


It's curious how two essentially identical installations can be so completely different. The front door continues to work perfectly. The side door has begun to jam right at the very edge. I'm assuming it is just the wood frame swelling as it warms up and gets humid. We've had lots of rain. Let me rephrase that. We've had LOTS of rain. and more coming today. So I'm having to sand the frame down.

The other option is that the urethane foam I bedded the door unit in is applying pressure against the frame causing to bow in ever so slightly. The frame is nailed to a 4" inside molding which I would have thought would have kept the frame from moving. But something moved. Hopefully we still have some of that paint left over in the paint stash.
