  7. Windows and Doors
    I’ve replaced the door and it’s working well but I need to fix another problem. I’m not sure what direction to go. I replaced the door because of rotting caused by poor water drainage. I’ve attached a few photos that should help understand this particular situation. The roof is angled...
